VOD news brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime Video … And they cook beans everywhere, which is often said, but at least this week there is a bit of everything, although the choice of They it is due to mere discard.

Amazon Prime Video

We start with Amazon Prime Video, which, as usual, when it launches its own content, reduces the stuff it introduces in its catalog … and sometimes it works out, sometimes not so much. They It is the highlight, but not the only thing that the platform brings for this week.


They (Them) is a new horror anthology that actually has nothing to do with the We by Jordan Peele, although I remember in more than one detail, and that once again resorts to the trauma that Anglo-Saxon countries have, but especially the United States, with the issue of racism. Similar to Lovecraft Territory, but with less fantasy involved, although the supernatural touch is not lacking. The most interesting of TheyHowever, it is the historical background in which the story takes place, no matter how hackneyed it may be. It is, in any case, the most drinkable of the week a priori, perhaps with one exception that you can also see on Prime Video.

The children at the zoo station

The children at the zoo station is the series based on the biography of the German Christiane Vera Felscherinow, known precisely for portraying the most sordid of Berlin in the mid-seventies of the last century. In fact, this story already had its movie in the eighties and as incredible as it may seem, Amazon has dared to adapt it for the small screen. It is a daring because the story of Felscherinow is reduced in adolescence, marginality, prostitution and heroin in vein … and if the series is faithful to the known material, it is hard.
