This Tuesday evening, CNET France therefore recommends the series Euphoria and Formula 1: Drivers of their destinies.
What series to watch on Netflix and Canal+ tonight?
A striking and masterful series: Euphoria
After a stay in a rehab center, Rue Bennett returns to high school. She meets Jules, a young trans teenager, with whom she begins to forge very strong bonds. The two young women, as well as their friends, evolve in a universe where youth has almost no longer any taboos: romantic relationships fall apart as quickly as they are formed, social networks are omnipresent, the neuroses and secrets of each are exposed for all to see and the drug is easily accessible.
The opinion of CNET France
Skins, Sex Education, 13 Reasons Why… One might think that everything has been done and said about the world of adolescence, and about this complicated transition to adulthood. However, the series Euphoria released in 2019 had the effect of a real electric shock, dynamiting the content and the form of a genre that was sometimes too gridded.
Narrating the daily lives of a group of teenagers with diverse and varied profiles, Euphoria breaks the expected Manichaeism from the outset: here, everyone has faults, demons, wounds, and reasons for their behavior. Even the character of Rue, central character of the series, is not a model of morality. But it is precisely this very particular attention to his gallery of teenagers, his finesse of writing, and the complexity and humanity of these portraits, which makes the show all its richness. Euphoria digs into the trauma behind the mascara, without concessions or exceptions, and it’s fascinating to watch.
The series is also captivating to follow by the mastery of its proposal, its visual debauchery and its ambition to achieve. Created by young Sam Levinson – already at the helm of films Malcolm & Marie and Assassination Nation, and son of director Barry Levinson -, Euphoria offers 1000 ideas per sequence, alternating between pure moments of suspense, action and tension, and sequences of a sweetness and a disturbing poetry. A waltz of tones in the image of the twirling existence of its characters, and of this age without compass.
Rewarded by 3 Emmy Awards, including Best Actress for the impressive Zendaya, Euphoria is a fascinating and masterful retelling of adolescent trauma, and one of the best recent series. An experience that can shock more than one by its violence and its treatment of sensitive subjects, but which remains to be seen absolutely. That’s good, season 2 has just started, and it’s to see on OCS and also on myCanal, with the Ciné Séries Pack.

The opinion of CNET France
Don’t like motorsports? Don’t leave right away. The greatest merit of the series Formula 1: Drivers of their destiny is precisely to succeed in making exciting for all a sport that may seem obscure to the uninitiated.
By revealing the behind the scenes of the Formula 1 season, the series shows us all the mechanics, the stakes, the pressure and the tension behind the racing cars rushing on the asphalt. The staging is flamboyant, and the images striking in addition to being exclusive. Motorsport fans will find the big stars of the discipline: Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, Sebastien Vettel… And especially their rivalry.
Tensions, anxieties, pressure… This series of 3 seasons of 10 episodes each shows above all that F1 is a very human discipline, and beyond the races, Formula 1: Drivers of their destiny sometimes takes on the trappings of drama or reality TV. Note that it is notably produced by James Gay-Rees, already behind the excellent documentary Senna on the famous pilot, and oscar winner for his other documentary Amy.
