“Rogue Heroes”, “Willow”, “Slow horses”… The series to see (or not) on Netflix, Prime, Amazon or Canal

“Rogue heroes”

Its title with rogue hints might suggest it, but “Rogue Heroes” (in French “thug heroes”), the new creation of English screenwriter Steven Knight, is not the sequel to “Peaky Blinders”, this chic mafia saga and vintage which has definitively installed him among the most prominent authors of the moment. Its plot begins during the Second World War and once again works to glamorize a certain idea of ​​British panache. Except that his characters are the inverse reflection of his Sunday best gangsters from the Birmingham slums: his new band is made up of a handful of high-society soldiers with the manners of thugs. Their claim to fame? Founding and directing the Special Air Service (SAS), a squad of hotheads who, with paltry means, led a succession of bloody commandos to the North African front, helping to halt Rommel’s advance towards the Suez Canal.

“Willows”

It is one of the madeleines of children who grew up in the 1980s. “Willow”, one of the pioneering films of the heroic fantasy genre, reappears on the Disney+ platform in the form of a series with great spectacle. Breathtaking landscapes, monsters, swords, armor, magic, all the ingredients of Ron Howard’s feature film (1988) are back, starting with the main actor Warwick Davis, whose mischief and charm still have as much effect. Especially since he is this time supported by a band of new heroines.

“This England”

A priori, the political defeat of the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson had enough to feed a mini-series of prestige, even several seasons. Curiously, the co-creator Michael Winterbottom (author fifteen years ago of already forgotten hard-hitting films like “The Road to Guantánamo” or “An undefeated heart”) prefers to focus on the first months of “BoJo” in power, marked by its disastrous management of the Covid crisis.

“Peripherals, the worlds of Flynne”

Adapted by showrunner Scott B. Smith, William Gibson’s novel “Peripherals” is skillfully imaged, both in its description of the Deep South of the United States and in its hallucinatory vision of London.

The story takes place in the year 2032 in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, where a young woman, Flynne (Chloë Grace Moretz, in her best role to date), lives with her brother, Burton, a veteran Navy (Jack Reynor, very good too). To pay their blind mother’s health bills, Burton plays games online and is soon offered to beta test a new simulation. However, as his sister, who also wears a virtual reality helmet, discovers, the dangerous mission they must fulfill does not take place in a metaverse but indeed in the future. More precisely in London in 2099. In other words, they really play their life.

“Slow Horses” (season 2)

Some series are entirely linked to a place and the character who occupies it. It is, this season again, an old office that smells of cigarettes and cheap alcohol. And of the one who works and sleeps there, just as dirty, played by Gary Oldman, at the top of his game as an odious falsely dilettante chief. After a successful first season, “Slow Horses” returns to us with his band of spies put in the closet like him, confronted with a new danger: the awakening of Soviet sleeper agents ready to relaunch a bloody cold war.
