Loki: Disney Plus Hotstar
Tom Hiddleston is back as MCU’s most charming villain, Loki. But this time, Loki has new plans to wreak havoc. Lot of time-travelling and some space sighting is also involved. So, fasten your seat belts as the shape-shifter promises to take fans for the ride of a lifetime. It will also be fascinating to watch Loki back in action primarily because we know that he died in Avengers: Infinity War at the hands of Thanos.
The series also stars Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant.
As we fight an apocalyptic-like battle with an unseen enemy in the form of Covid-19, it seems perhaps fitting to churn out yet another doomsday movie with some glimmer of hope. Awake features Jane: The Virgin star Gina Rodriguez as a soldier who struggles to keep her family from harm’s way after a ‘global event wipes out humanity’s ability to sleep’.
Fresh, Fried and Crispy: Netflix
Yes, a lot of fried food is bad for you, but it is also so delicious. Therefore, it totally makes sense to have a food show based on just fried cuisines. In this new Netflix series, US critic Daym Drops checks in all of America’s best fried food joints to serve us some mouth-watering visuals.
Tragic Jungle: Netflix
The official synopsis of this Spanish-language drama reads, “To escape an arranged marriage, a woman flees into the depths of the Mayan jungle, where untamed nature merges the human with the supernatural.”
