VOD news 20/22: ‘Lincoln’s lawyer’, one of the old school

VOD News brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And, once again, the week appears relaxed, enough to highlight something as seemingly bland as Lincoln’s Lawyerwhich in turn gives us the opportunity to say hello to…

Netflix, yes sir. And it is that the great N of the VOD is lavished quite little lately at the head of the section basically because the competition brings out more attractive things a priori. On Netflix, however, garbage tends to abound… And that Lincoln’s Lawyer it’s not going in as well as it should; but you had to choose something and by mere discard, it was that.

What’s so special about Lincoln’s Lawyer as to occupy the header of the section, when the critics are not receiving it exactly well? In addition, it is the typical series of lawyers that does not come to contribute much freshness. Well, in addition to what has been said, Lincoln’s Lawyer its point in favor in recovering a genre of those that give for marathon and, despite what the critics say, the pedigree of the series is not minor.

Lincoln’s Lawyer is the latest from veteran American producer David E. Kelley, responsible for such television classics as Lawyer, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal or, more recently, Goliath, Big Little Lies either The Undoing. Only for that, Lincoln’s Lawyer deserves the benefit of the doubt. And if we add to this that the rest of the offer for this week on VOD platforms is quite poor… Lincoln’s Lawyer takes her There’s no more.

Another Netflix premiere that has been talked about a lot is… no, not this one: Our father a documentary about a famous very shameless fertility specialist, but since Netflix Spain has not even deigned to put the trailer, we leave you as a second course Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045: Sustainable War, which is not accompanied by criticism either… and I’m not surprised, because it looks a bit strange. But… To put something more than how much the churrería makes.

Apple TV+ also has a couple of things to entertain its subscribers, although if sports documentaries aren’t your thing, all you have left is… (well, and the series it keeps broadcasting)

the essex snake is a British period series based on the novel by Sarah Perry that brings together Tom Hiddleston (Loki, Kong: Skull Island) and Claire Danes (Homeland, stardust) in a story about religion, science and desire whose aesthetic impact seems to be far superior to the general reception it has had among specialized critics, although judging the work under this scale, even though it has only had a couple of episodes broadcast openly , is the one that best stops out of all the contents highlighted in this VOD News.

  • The code of excellence (T2). “A series of distinctive athletes reveal the truth about a pivotal moment in their careers when they achieved excellence.”

We continue with Disney +, which arrives with little, but which has managed one of those premiere series that make people talk, even if it is not for the good. Although personally I am more intrigued by that The Quest What if he catches me a few years ago…

There is no mystery worth: how i met your father is the rehash of the successful comedy how i knew your mother (also on Disney +), which after all was still a rehash of the classic friends with your own codes. Well, some enlightened person from CBS had the idea of ​​doing the same thing again… but as the canons dictate today: with a woman as the protagonist, with a group of friends who are no longer white and heterosexual… Result? A hogwash…according to critics, watch out!

What’s on Amazon Prime Video? Well, not too much, to tell the truth, although…

It is not an Amazon original, but it has been exclusively on Prime Video: The Addams Family 2: The Great Escape, the new installment of animation of the famous family, a mediocre sequel in broad strokes, despite the fact that the original (the recent animated film, not the classics) could not boast of anything either. Well, this is the highlight of an offer of originals and exclusives from the platform that is embarrassing. I won’t tell you more.
