It's time to pack your bags and head to Hawaii for the vacation of a lifetime. Created by Mike White, also responsible for HBO's underrated gem Enlightened, The White Lotus has a star-studded ensemble cast and follows various hotel guests over the course of an eventful week. In terms of the storyline and without giving too much away, Shane and Rachel are on a romantic honeymoon, but as they get to know each other better in this intimate environment their fairytale begins to shatter – especially when Shane's mother pays them a very unwanted visit. Meanwhile, a desperate woman recovering from the death of her mum is at the hotel alone and becomes increasingly unstable.
Finally, the Mossbacher family has plenty of problems: including a mother who treats the rest of her family as employees, a father dealing with a health crisis, a socially awkward son and a confrontational daughter who brought along a friend. The series also highlights a couple of employees – mainly the fastidious resort manager who is on a downward spiral and a spa worker who has to please a needy guest.
From our perspective, The White Lotus is worth watching for the talent alone. It's a show that manages to be equal parts hilarious and unsettling. There's a reason it's been a global smash hit and at just 6 episodes for the season, it's easy enough to fit into your viewing schedule. It was also renewed for a second season by makers HBO shortly after the first debuted. Get on board.
