Made for Love is definitely one of the most brilliant psychological thriller comedy series. The HBO Max series stars Cristin Milioti, Ray Romano, and Billy Magnussen in lead roles. Made for Love revolves around a woman on the run from her tech billionaire husband, who implanted a monitoring chip in her brain allowing him to track her, watch what she sees and gather her emotional data. The brilliant series was canceled just after two seasons by HBO Max leaving the fans extremely disappointed. So, if you also miss Made for Love here are some shows you should watch next.

Westworld (Rent on Prime Video)
Synopsis: In this series set in a futuristic Wild West fantasy park, a group of android ‘hosts’ deviate from their programmers’ carefully planned scripts in a disturbing pattern of aberrant behavior. With an exceptional cast headed by Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandiwe Newton and Jeffrey Wright, ‘Westworld’ was inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 film.
Synopsis: Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie’s disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment—a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak—draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently.
