As we approach the end of March, we rounded up a list of television shows and movies available on a variety of streaming platforms to get you through the last few months of school.
“Moon Knight”: The first of many big projects on Disney+ is Marvel Studios’ “Moon Knight.” In this six-episode series, Oscar Isaac takes on the role of Marc Spector. After being granted power from the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu, Spector now must protect the innocent in his name. With this addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel will grapple for the first time with a character actively suffering from mental illness. Spector suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder, meaning we will see multiple sides of the character, including Moon Knight and Steven Grant, who appear in the trailer. Disney has also added The Defenders Saga to their library after its six original programs first appeared on Netflix.
“The Adam Project”: New to the collection of Netflix Originals, The Adam Project is a sci-fi narrative that takes you into the life of Adam Reed, played by Ryan Renolds. Reed makes a crash landing in the year 2022, where he meets his 12-year-old self. Along with the old and young “Adams,” Mark Ruffalo joins as their father, Louis Reed who team up on older Adam’s mission to save the future. There is also a great soundtrack to add to the action-packed storyline.
“Halo”: The newest release to Paramount + is “Halo,” based on the top-rated, long-running video series. This show will go more into depth following the now drama-filled storyline of the conflict between humanity and the alien force of the Covenant army. Along with the famous Master Chief and Cortana characters, there will also be the introduction of a variety of new ones to add to the storyline and drive home the initial plot of Halo. After a couple of spin-off movies and smaller fan-made television shows, this long-awaited live-action storyline is one that you won’t want to miss.
“Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty”: This ongoing drama on HBO Max takes the viewer inside the 1980s Lakers. Significant figures include Magic Johnson, Jerry West, and John C. Reilly as the owner, Jerry Buss. Watch one of the NBA’s premier dynasties be made.
“Welcome to Flatch”: This new Fox comedy carries on the mockumentary tradition with a brand new subject. “Welcome to Flatch” dives into the small town of Flatch, Ohio, and the relationships between its colorful residents. While new episodes are released weekly on Fox, the first seven episodes are available on Hulu.
