BINGE OF THE WEEK RECOMMENDATIONS

This week our staff suggests the following great binge-worthy shows: Thirteen: Drama, House of Lies: Comedy, Camelot: SciFi, and Bill Nye Saves The World: Reality

Drama Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

Thirteen sees 26 year-old Ivy Moxam return home after missing for thirteen years. Ivy was held captive during all this time and returns to her family struggling to cope with her horrific experience. As Ivy and the authorities begin to work her case, inconsistencies between Ivy’s story and police records lead the authorities to believe that Ivy isn’t telling them everything.

A British miniseries from the BBC, Thirteen aired on BBC Three in June 2016, receiving wide praise from critics and audiences alike. Rotten Tomatoes’ critic consensus describes the show as taking revisited material for the genre and reinvigorating it with its own unique spin, along with great performances from the cast and a “haunting” story.

Available on Amazon Prime, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation, and Xbox

Time Commitment: 1 Season

Comedy Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

House of Lies stars Don Cheadle as shifty business consultant Marty Kaan. Marty, along with his equally devious colleagues, charms wealthy business owners and aristocrats into one-sided deals that all but bankrupt them, but make Marty and his friends rich.

Also starring Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Ben Schwarz (Parks and Recreation), House of Lies is a cynical, darkly-humored comedy series with a good cast offering an unashamedly good time.

Available on Amazon Prime, Showtime App, Amazon Video, iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation

Time Commitment: 5 Seasons

Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

Camelot retells the age old story of honor, evil, and fantasy. Whereas many of the reinterpretations involving King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have a more adventurous, appealing spin on the tale, Starz puts more of an adult twist on the legend. Featuring more elements of romance and passions, Starz adds on a more Shakespearean angle to the story, offering a darker, morally grey tale about King Arthur and Excalibur.

With Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) as Merlin, Clive Standen (Vikings) as Sir Gawain, and Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) as Morganna, Camelot boasts an exciting cast. A dramatic, more serious thrill coming from the Starz reinterpretation of the mythic story, Camelot is definitely worth the binge for fantasy fans.

Available on Hulu, Amazon Video, iTunes, Google Play, Fandango Now, Vudu, Xbox

Time Commitment: 1 Season

Reality

What The Show’s About:

Bill Nye hosts this reality discussion show concerning myths and other occurrences that challenge science. Bill undergoes his own experiments to try and break these myths.

Featuring space exploration advocates, entrepreneurs, and comedians, Bill Nye Saves the World keeps things lively. For a fun reality show with plenty of entertainment value, Bill Nye Saves the World offers up a really easy binge.
