SMASH (Weekend 1)
When we first posted this rec, we were practically begging for the BOMBSHELL stream and I think “they” heard us because we got the revival this week!! And now Steven Spielberg is taking this show to Broadway.
Miracle Workers (Week 2)
Looking for a laugh? Check out this cast that work perfectly together: Steve Buscemi, Daniel Radcliffe, Karan Soni, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Lolly Adefope. Season one is about angels trying to play God to save the world and season two takes place in the Middle Ages.
Elite (Weekend 2)
Basically Gossip Girl in Spain. This series includes murder mysteries, deception, friend/family drama, and class issues. You will grow attached to every character, even if you think you hate them.
Dispatches from Elsewhere (Weekend 5)
This show is so wholesome, weird, and loads of fun. It’s the perfect dose of escapism you’re looking for right now. Also, this cast? Sensational – Jason Segal, Eve Lindley, Andre (3000) Benjamin and Sally Field.
Watchmen (Weekend 6)
In an alternate universe, police hide their identities in order to protect themselves from a terrorist organization. Not the easiest viewing, but Watchmen is one of the only pieces of media that I think takes the source material and transforms it into something better.
Normal People (Weekend 7)
Three weeks later, we’re still processing. This show may be one of the best book-to-screen adaptations of all time. Warning, you might need to take breaks every three episodes to rehydrate due to the amount of tears shed while watching.
Hollywood (Week 9)
Beyond the incredible ensemble cast (Darren Criss, Jim Parsons, Samara Weaving, Laura Harrier, Maude Apatow, Holland Taylor, Queen Latifah) the show raises this important question, what if Hollywood had been a haven for marginalized voices rather than a club shutting them out?
