10 Short HBO Max Shows That Are Perfect To Binge In A Long Weekend

Sometimes, your binge needs are filled by a fun show that you don’t have to take so seriously. Happy Endings is perfect in that situation as the ABC series has the simple premise of following the lives of a group of six friends living in Chicago.

It doesn’t sound exciting on paper and it doesn’t get off to the hottest of starts but once it picks up, the show fires on all cylinders. The ensemble cast including Damon Wayans Jr., Elisha Cuthbert, and Eliza Coupe is great together, and the writing is sharp in this cult series. At just three seasons, it can be consumed quickly.

Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens (2020-Present)

Following her breakout role in Crazy Rich Asians, it seems like Awkwafina is everywhere. Recently, she has shined in a Disney movie (Raya and the Last Dragon), the MCU (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), and a Golden Globe winning performance in The Farewell.

However, she seems like she’s at her best in Awkwafina is Nora from Queens, a show she helped create where she stars as a slacker in New York. The episodes are consistently funny and the supporting cast (including Lori Tran Chinn, BD Wong, Bowen Yang, and some fantastic guest stars) is hilarious.

Love Life (2020-Present)

When HBO Max officially launched, one of the shows that it debuted with was Love Life. Season 1 is an addictive binge with the always likable Anna Kendrick starring as Darby Carter and with each episode (or two) focusing on different romances throughout her life.

The show was strong there but also followed it up with a solid second season focusing on Marcus Watkins (William Jackson Harper). The episodes are short to the point where you could likely watch each season in a single day across about six hours, making it an ideal thing to binge.

The Alienist (2018-2020)

A cast consisting of Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning feels like a big enough deal to be an HBO original or something airing on a streaming service but The Alienist actually aired on TNT originally. That network might be why it didn’t find a massive audience.

The beauty of a platform like HBO Max is that a show like The Alienist can find a second life there. Based on a 1994 novel of the same name, the series is set in the 1890s and follows a team sent to New York to investigate a murderer of children. It’s the kind of thing that you can easily get hooked on.

The Leftovers (2014-2017)

There are some tremendous shows out there that unjustly end up flying under the radar and The Leftovers fits that bill well. It didn’t get nearly the amount of hype that many HBO shows do but it has an argument for being the best on the network during its run.

The Leftovers, based on a 2011 novel, picks up years after the “Sudden Departure,” which saw 140 million people suddenly vanish from the world with no explanation. It was created by Damon Lindelof (who also made the always bingeable Lost) and features a gripping story as well as a fantastic cast that will keep you coming back for more.

Watchmen (2019)

Regina King is one of the great actors who appears in The Leftovers but she’s also the lead actor in Watchmen, which won her an Emmy Award. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also earned one, while the show took home the honors of Outstanding Limited Series.

That should be enough to get you to watch this but it’s also a perfect superhero show to binge at only nine episodes. It tells a self-contained story that starts in a confusing manner but comes together in spectacular fashion, making for one of the best finales of any show in recent memory.

Barry (2018-Present)

Although Barry has been airing since 2018, it is only in its third season and with each season being just eight episodes, you can finish this quicker than most shows. The series follows the titular Barry as he attempts to juggle his career as a hitman along with his passion for acting.

Bill Hader, Sarah Goldberg, and Henry Winkler lead a tremendous cast on a show that has racked up the awards since premiering. There’s also NoHo Hank, who is both a lovable and ridiculous character. Barry can get pretty absurd but it all works better than it probably should.

The Flight Attendant (2020-Present)

If there’s one genre of TV show that people love to binge, it’s a mystery. They are likely to get wrapped up in a story and try to find out the truth by hitting “next episode” after each installment wraps up. For those fans, The Flight Attendant is perfect.

Kaley Cuoco stars as Cassie Bowden, a flight attendant who spends the night with a passenger only to wake up next to his dead body, leading her to try and clear her name as a suspect. The show is addicting, features the best acting of Cuoco’s career, and season 2 has gone down an even wilder path.

Lovecraft Country (2020)

When word broke that HBO canceled Lovecraft Country after just one season, it was a disappointment. It was nominated for over a dozen Emmy Awards and featured great performances, fantastic production design, strong writing, and so much more.

The show expertly blends the horrors of H.P. Lovecraft creatures with the terrifying world of a segregated nation as it follows a trio of Black people who stumbled into a town where the writer apparently based his works. It’s easy to get sucked into this engaging story and there are only 10 episodes to consume.

Succession (2018-Present)

Recently renewed for a fourth season, Succession is a multiple Emmy winner (with more likely coming after a stellar season 3) that is among the best shows HBO has ever created. It has been widely praised for nearly every aspect from the performances to the writing to something as simple as the opening credits sequence.

Succession focuses on the Roy family as the siblings fight with each other and their domineering father for control of the family entertainment company. The writing is as sharp as it gets, the actors have racked up the accolades, and there are plenty of twists to keep you hooked.
