HBO & Max Original Programming
- Aquaman: King of Atlantis
- This cartoon adventure sets straight-man Aquaman into a strange and silly world under the sea.

- This ragtag band of misfits and weirdos come together at a creaky old mansion ostensibly to work on their problems and maybe, also, fight crime.
- We watch a group of teenage girls as they go through modern life with drugs and sex and alcohol freely on tap for all in this strong, dramatic series.
- Game of Thrones
- Set in a world of high fantasy, this show adaptated the novels of George R.R. Martin to spectaular, and blood, results... right up until the series jumped the shark (or dragon, if you will).
- A first look at HBO's female-centric show, although we didn't continue into the series as we hated the characters.

- Based on her solo-comic, Harley Quinn has just broken up with the Joker and is forced to find her own footing as a villain in Gotham City. Thankfully she has great friends, like Poison Ivy, to help her on her way.

- Nearly 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, this series see the House of the Dragon as it slowly falls.

- Stephen Moffat brings an adaptation of this time-twisting romance story, although a fair bit of the magic is lost in the translation.

- The launch series for the DC Universe streaming app, this series starts with a darker, grittier take on our traditional team of fab teens (and a few adults this time around).
- True Blood (2008):
- Vampires and werewolves and all kinds of creatures invade an over-sexed Louisianna town in this cult-hit series.
