We Were the Lucky Ones

We Were the Lucky Ones
We Were the Lucky Ones -- Season 1 -- Based on Georgia Hunter’s New York Times bestselling novel, the television adaptation of “We Were the Lucky Ones” is a limited series inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive and reunite. “We Were the Lucky Ones” demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment, the human spirit can endure and even thrive. The series is a tribute to the triumph of hope and /

Let’s start with a series that is currently airing its first season. This is also a limited series, so it will come to an end with its finale next week. It is still a wonderful production to watch, and brings the atrocities of the past forward once more.

We Were the Lucky Ones follows the Kurc family. They are Polish Jews who have been separated by the war. One brother is in Paris, while one sister attempts to reach other brothers in the Soviet Union. They risk it all to protect themselves and find a way to join the family together once more.

We Were the Lucky Ones is available to stream on Hulu.

A Small Light

We’ll stick with World War II for now. A Small Light is a story that you’ve heard but via a different viewpoint. You know the story of Anne Frank and how she and her family hid in an attic during World War II. Well, it’s time to hear about the people who hide the Franks.

This is the story of Miep Gies and her husband, Jan. It’s also the story of the men and women who worked for the Franks who also knew about the family hiding in the attic upstairs. We get to see the dangers they went through to make sure the Franks and the others hiding with them could still thrive.

A Small Light is available to stream on Hulu.

Lawmen: Bass Reeves

How about a story of a lawman from the past? Lawmen: Bass Reeves tells the story of the first Black U.S. Marshals of the past.

We get to see how Reeves gained the position, and the fight that he had to put up to prove that he was worthy of it. There’s a look at how that affected his family, but how he had to balance his dreams and his life at home to ensure the protection of those he held dear.

Of course, it all starts with him being a slave. We get to see how he survived and what it made him into when it came to fighting for justice himself.

Lawmen: Bass Reeves is available on Paramount+.

The First Lady

While there is a lot of focus on the presidents, the women behind those powerful men have done some wonderful things throughout the years. The First Lady gives a look at three of those women: Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, and Michelle Obama.

We get a chance to see how they supported their husbands as they rose in power. There was a look at some of their own scandals or health problems, and how they used their own experiences to help people. There’s a lot that is overlooked when it comes to the First Ladies of the United States, and this series offered a chance to learn the truth—and some unfound suspicions.

The First Lady is available to stream on Showtime.


It’s time for the surprising addition to the list. After all, Silo isn’t set in the past. This is a dystopian future, but it involves the hunt for a murderer. At least, that’s what Juliette believes when she takes over as sheriff.

It turns out that there is a much bigger conspiracy going on. There is a huge question throughout the series: is the world outside really as toxic as the people in the silo are made to believe? What is really over the hill where the tree is? Juliette makes it her mission to find out the truth.

Silo is available to stream on Apple TV+.
