This weekend I have … 45 minutes and I want more superheroes
When to watch: Arrives on Friday, on Amazon.
This new animated series by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”), adapted from his comic, focuses on Mark (voiced by Steven Yeun), a teenager who admires his superhero father (JK Simmons) and is eager to continue in your steps. However, maybe he shouldn’t be as eager – Omni-Man might not be as super or heroic as he seems. Although the show’s themes of individualizing parents and developing a support system and moral code fit into a more youthful space, their extreme blood is decidedly adult. The first three episodes will be released on Friday and the next five will be released weekly until April 30.

‘The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers’
When to watch: Arrives on Friday, on Disney +.
Like “Cobra Kai” and “Saved by the Bell,” this revival of “Mighty Ducks” is a personable series set in the same world as the original, with some returning characters and some next-gen kids in the mix. . Lauren Graham plays roughly the same character she played in “Gilmore Girls” and “Parenthood,” a charming and devoted single mother who starts a hockey team on this show so her pre-teen can keep playing after being separated from the now-villain. Ducks. The rink where they practice is run by none other than Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estévez), who swears he’s out of the hockey world. But if you’ve ever come across a popular entertainment molecule, you know that vote won’t last.

When to watch: Now at Sundance Now.
Season 1 of this Swedish drama (in Swedish, with subtitles) begins in 1945, season 2 in 1955, season 3 in 1968. But this fourth season of four episodes takes us back to the summer of 1951. Calle and Nina (Charlie Gustafsson and Hedda Stiernstedt), the show’s central couple, are married to other people and pretend to keep their distance. But how many longing glances and sighs can two characters, or one viewer, endure? If you like period dramas in general or joint dramas in which adult siblings have major problems with each other, or if all your dreams involve sun-drenched beaches, check this out.
