Drama Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

Queen of the South sees the coronation of Teresa, a woman living in Mexico whose drug-running lover is killed, causing Teresa to flee into Texas to become queen of the country’s underground, illegal drug world, with Teresa making a vow to avenge her lover’s murder.

The USA crime drama is based on Telemundo’s telenovela La Reina Del Sur, starring Kate del Castillo and stars Brazilian actress, Alicia Braga (I Am Legend, City of God).

Comedy Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

Rake is an Australian comedy-drama series about a self-destructive common law lawyer whose brilliance is only out-shined by his debauchery. Typically defending those who cannot be defended, such as cold-blooded murderers, and even cannibals, attorney Cleaver Greene’s job isn’t necessarily an easy one.

Starring Richard Roxburgh (Van Helsing, Mission Impossible II) as the lecherous attorney, Rake is a complex, darkly-humored comedy series fans of House and Californication should thoroughly enjoy.

Available on Netflix

Time Commitment: 3 Seasons

Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror Binge Of The Week

What The Show’s About:

12 Monkeys is a Syfy original series loosely based on the 1995 Bruce Willis-starring movie of the same name. Starring Aaron Stanford (The Hills Have Eyes, Nikita) and Amanda Schull(Suits, Pretty Little Liars), Stanford plays a time traveler from the year 2043 where a virus created by a shadowy militarized organization call the 12 Monkeys Army causes an apocalypse for the human race. Going back in time to the year 2015, two years before the virus is released, the time traveler works with virologist, Cassandra Railly (Schull) to stop the coming catastrophe.

Premiering January 2015 on Syfy, 12 Monkeys has been renewed for a fourth and final season set to premiere in 2018. 12 Monkeys is definitely a must for fans of the original movie or just science fiction and time travel in general.
