This year is proving to be truly remarkable in terms of TV series. We started 2023 with the amazing “The Last of Us” and continued with other intriguing offerings such as Silo, The Offer, Mrs. Davis and the latest season of “The Mandalorian.” And now, we have reached an incredible moment with the finale of “Succession.”
But there is a series that premiered in the United States at the end of last year and has not yet arrived in our country. A series that boasts a 99% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes — “The Last of Us” has 96% and “Succession” has 95% — and is considered by many as the best series of the year: “Poker Face.”
Another great work by Rian Johnson
Rian Johnson, the mastermind behind the magnificent “Knives Out” saga and one of the best Star Wars movies in history — yes, Episode VIII — surprised audiences last November with this original series on Peacock. While he has worked on series before, this is the first time he has created an entire universe and meticulously crafted every detail. With any doubts about Johnson now cleared, it’s clear that “Poker Face” is a remarkable work.
“Poker Face” is a thrilling series that follows Charlie (Natasha Lyonne, the star of “Russian Doll”), a woman with a unique superpower: she can tell when someone is lying, without exception. Charlie embarks on a journey across the United States in her Plymouth Barracuda to uncover the secrets behind a crime she must investigate in order to unravel what truly happened.
The series consists of 10 episodes, each nearly an hour long, and since its release, it has become one of the most-watched and critically acclaimed dramas worldwide. However, viewers in our country are still eagerly awaiting its arrival.
Many believed that with the launch of SkyShowtime, the series would finally be available, considering that Peacock is part of the platform. However, SkyShowtime has shown that it doesn’t want to rush its premieres. Just like “Twin Peaks” arrived later, “Poker Face” will make its debut in June, taking advantage of the summer season.
