XFINITY TV Binge-Watching Guide: 10 Shows Worth Your Free Time This Weekend


Alright, binge-watchers…we’ve got a big week of TV ahead of us. “The Walking Dead,” “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” and “Shameless” are bringing their seasons to an end, “Empire” is finally back, and “Game of Thrones” is looming over the horizon. It’s a good time to have a free time.

Last week, I asked you to send me your most impressive binge-watching accomplishments on Twitter. So, before we jump into this week’s picks, let’s call out an Outstanding Achievement in Binge-Watching

Watched 5 seasons of The Wire in a month and a half. Currently making my way through Seinfeld for the first time.

If you want to match Mike’s feat, we have every episode of “The Wire” on XFINITY On Demand. If you have your own Binge-Brag that’s worth mentioning, drop me a line on Twitter and be sure to tag your tweets #bingewatching and #XFINITYbinge.

 1. – “Shameless”: With the show’s sixth season coming to an end this Sunday, there’s a lot to catch up on. And with the way this show balances hilarity with heartwarming with heartbreaking, you’re going to want to savor every episode.
 2. – “The People vs. O.J. Simpson”: This mini-series has been so good that it doesn’t matter that we all know how it’s going to end. Courtney B. Vance and Sarah Paulson’s performances alone are reason enough to spend the day in court.
   3. – “The Walking Dead”: All the pieces are in place for what’s rumored to be a crazy-town finale. Take some time to remember Rick’s crew as they were before this Sunday’s train wreck.  4. – “Outlander”: Consider this an official challenge; this epic romance is kicking of its second season next Saturday. See if you can catch all of Season 1 between now and then.
  5. – “Real Housewives of New York City”: The eighth season of this scandalous hit premieres this Wednesday. Invite some friends over to binge Season 7…and hope nobody is in a wine-throwing mood.  6. – “The Magicians”: With eleven episodes available on XFINITY On Demand, “The Magicians” is a significant weekend commitment. But this thrilling fantasy show about an academy for magic is worth it.
 7. – “Southern Charm”: This outrageous look at wealthy South Carolinian singles is the perfect guilty pleasure. Best of all, since it’s so light and fun, you can feel free to get some multi-tasking done while you watch. Win/win.
 8. – “Hap and Leonard”: There are only six episodes of this gritty favorite, so this is perfect for binge-rs on a time budget.
 9. – “The Family”: Here’s another one for a quick binge. There are only five episodes, but there are more than enough jaw-dropping moments.
 10.“Game of Thrones”: Just a heads up; “Game of Thrones” is probably always going to be on this list. If I can turn one person onto what I consider to be the best show on television, then I’ll consider this whole thing to be a success.
