What To Get Started On, Catch Up On & Binge Watch
There are no reasons to get left behind
With so many series to watch out there, it can get difficult to figure out what you should get your hands on. There are so many genres, which of course have their own series, and so many reviews that all say wonderful things. And hey, while it’s hard to things wrong, there’s also no denying that some shows really do stand out brighter than the rest.
FOX+ has its own library of exclusive content that is fun to watch, exciting to see unfold and are serious cannot-be-missed series.
The Australian Open
Every year, one of the most watched tennis tournaments is held in Melbourne, Australia, aptly called The Australian Open. While there were surprising upsets and victories in the first week, a host of top players still remain as they advance into the second week. Favorite Novak Djokovic is reeling from an upset against 21-year-old Hyeon Chung, but the South Korean prodigy is not the only underdog to come through to the other side. Tenny Sandgren pulled off an incredible five set victory over Dominic Thiem in a relatively controversial match. Roger Federer is making his way to the quarterfinals for the 14th time following a clinical victory over Marton Fucsovics.
Catch all remaining matches of the first tennis grand slam tournament of the year with additional feeds on FOX+. And make sure to keep an eye on the Mixed Doubles Final on January 28, (Sunday) at 7PM PHT and the Men's Finals at 10:30PM PHT.
In The Gifted, two ordinary parents are forced to put their family on the run after they discover that their children have mutant abilities. They then join an underground community of mutants who have to fight their way through life and are constantly just trying to survive.
But while the series does follow the lives of the children as they discover and improve their powers, it is also the tale of two parents—a district attorney and a nurse—each of whom must battle with the world as they know it and do what they think is best for their children.
The Long Road Home
The Iraq War miniseries, The Long Road Home, is based on the reports of journalists Martha Raddatz. Her 2007 book of the same name told the story of a small group pf soldiers from the Army’s 1st Cavalry Division that were pinned down in Sadr City. It then followed the days leading up to their departure from Iraq.
The eight-part miniseries is full of moments that are powerful, moving and intensely true-to-life. The show has a clear talent of putting viewers into the boots of the soldiers. There are endless questions: What do you do when you see a child pick up a gun? How do you act when you’re riding a tank with a dead body beside you? How do you move forward when you’re constantly trying to dodge bullets, injury and death?
FOX+ not only has spectacular series, it also houses some blockbuster films that we’ll never get tired of watching. Case in point: Logan.
In this film, watch stars Hugh Jackman (Wolverine/Logan) and Patrick Stewart (Professor X), as well as newcomer Dafne Keen (X-23), fight for their lives against an underground group that is illegally creating their mutants. With nothing but an old comic book to guide them, Logan must protect X-23 from the villains that created her. Get ready for a lot of action, some drama and the inevitably painful farewells.
Another film we can never quite shake is James Cameron's Titanic. After all, who can forget the love story that started when sheltered and lonely Rose met the lively and unapologetic Jack? We will always utter those iconic lines that were said at just the right time in some of the film's most beautiful scenes, as well as the people they had to fight to be together. Rose and Jack's love story was one that defied social norms, opened up possibilities and proved just how far finding that one thing — or person — can take you.
