XFINITY TV Binge-Watching Guide: It’s a Good Time to Have Free Time


Start stock-piling your snacks and laying out your sweatpants because XFINITY Watchathon Week is almost here!

“Hey Gordon, what is Watchathon?”

Glad you asked. (That, or I’m hearing voices.) Basically, from April 18th through April 24th you can enjoy thousands of episodes of TV shows from HBO, Starz, Cinemax and other networks for free. It is truly a binge-watcher’s dream come true.

Alright, before we jump into this week’s picks, let’s head over to Twitter for an Outstanding Achievement in Binge-Watching

@gordonholmes the last two seasons of Game of Thrones in a 28-hour period. Recognize.

Wow. Consider yourself officially recognized, Offended Nerd. (If that is your real name.)

If you want to match Offended Nerd’s feat, we have every episode of “Game of Thrones” 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. – “Outlander”: You might need the ability to time travel to watch season one of this epic before Saturday’s premiere. But, you can always just make the start of season two the cherry on top of a worthwhile binge session by using On Demand.
 2. – “Orphan Black”: Two words: Tatiana Maslany. I don’t want to give too much away about this show’s concept, but universities should offer classes on her performance…er…performances…
   3. – “The Magicians”: Seriously, who needs Hogwarts? This magical hit has cast a spell on us. The question is; what’re we going to do after Monday’s finale?
 4. – “Chrisley Knows Best”: These quick, comedic episodes fly by so quickly. You can easily catch up on the full season of this hysterical guilty pleasure before Tuesday’s finale.
  5. – “The Girlfriend Experience”: Fun Fact: Riley Keough, the star of this racy new Starz show, is actually Elvis Presley’s granddaughter. Anyone know the title you give to the daughter of the daughter of a king? Anywho, the full first season will be available Sunday.  6. – “Dice”: This fictional look at the life of comedian Andrew “Dice” Clay is surprisingly…endearing. Check out the premiere now, then come back Sunday when we get the rest of season one.
 7. – “Lucifer”: Now that “Lucifer” has been picked up for a second season, we’re calling it “Safe Investment TV.” By that we mean; if you fall in love with this devil-turned-somewhat-good tale, you won’t have to worry because there will be plenty more to come.
 8. – “Those Who Can’t”: Let me be clear, this comedy about high-school educators is not for everyone. It gets a bit randy. But, if that’s your cup of tea, you’re going to definitely want to tune in to these teachers.
 9. – “The People vs. O.J. Simpson”: I don’t think I’m  exaggerating when I say ‘TPVOJS’ has been the best show of 2016. Now you can watch the whole thing from the Bronco chase, to the gloves, to the verdict, to the aftermath.
 10.“Hap and Leonard”: A six-episode season? You can bang out this action-packed hidden gem in an evening.
