“The Bear”: in a Chicago restaurant, a three-star series
In a short season (four hours in total), The Bear imposes character and environment with an energy that has become rare in the world of series. Built around a place – the Original Beef of Chicagoland restaurant – and a figure – the young chef Carmy Berzatto (Jeremy White, fragile and charismatic) who abandoned a prestigious New York establishment for this greasy spoon he inherited after the suicide of his older brother, The Bear stands on the edge of chaos. That of the restaurant first, established in a working-class district of Chicago (which means gunfire in broad daylight and drug trafficking), whose team is struggling to get used to the methods of the newcomer. The one who reigns in the lives of the characters, all drawn with striking clarity, thanks both to the writing directed by Christopher Storer and to the performers. Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Ayo Edebiri make an impression on the retinas, the first in the role of the best friend of the Berzatto brothers, whose mourning takes on cataclysmic forms, the second in that of Sydney, a young chef full of talent and ambition .

“The Midnight Club”: tales from the hospice
Just a year later Midnight Sermonstwo years after the end of the series of Hauntingwriter-director Mike Flanagan continues, with metronome regularity, his exploration of the links between horror and melodrama with The Midnight Club. The 2022 cuvée has its origins in the 1990s, with sick teenagers gathered in a kind of old-fashioned hospice where they come to live their last days. To ward off the fear of dying, some of them get together, every evening around midnight, and tell each other stories of ghosts, serial killers and evil spirits. They also tell each other the story of Julia, a patient admitted in the 1960s but who came out of the institution alive, cured of the cancer that was to kill her.
