XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: Holiday Weekend Edition

June 30, 2016

It seems really unsafe to spend your entire holiday running around in the damaging sun. For your health, you should find some time to stay indoors and check out full seasons of these popular shows.

Preacher GameofThrones
 1. – “Preacher”: AMC just picked up this creepy hit for a second season, so you don’t have to worry about getting addicted and having it vanish.
 2. – “Game of Thrones”The last two episodes of season six were just amazing. I need to go back and watch it all.
OddMomOut SiliconValley
   3. – “Odd Mom Out”:  You can find every episode (including one that hasn’t aired yet) online.
 4. – “Silicon Valley”: The third season was rough, but it redeemed itself with a cool twist in the finale.
TheBachelorette Power
  5. – “The Bachelorette”This season has been insane. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was really just a psychological experiment to see how long JoJo can go without snapping.  6. – “Power”: Season one of this intense Starz fave is available for free for a limited time. Check it out!

XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: HBO Favorites Wrapping Up

June 24, 2016

 

“A Lannister always pays his debts,” is one of “Game of Thrones” most popular sayings. And now that we’ve enjoyed the epic awesomeness of Season 6, we too must pay with 42 weeks of a “Game of Thrones”-free existence.

…sigh…

Sorry, I’m not dealing with the upcoming season finale very well.

Fortunately, there’s still tons of TV to binge-watch this summer. Here are some of our faves…

GameofThrones  Veep
 1. –“Game of Thrones”One of the biggest and best shows of this generation ends its sixth season on Sunday the 26th. Make sure you’re caught up before the lemon cake hits the fan during the finale.
 2. – “Veep”: Who will be the President of the United States when this season’s epic storyline wraps up?
SiliconValley RayDonovan
   3. – “Silicon Valley”: The season has turned around a little bit after a weird middle. Here’s hoping for a strong finish.
 4. – “Ray Donovan”: Showtime’s summer hit returns Sunday the 26th. Catch up on the previous seasons online and watch the season 4 finale early.
OddMomOut Outlander
  5. – “Odd Mom Out”: – Not only do we have all of last season and this season’s premiere, but we also have the next two episodes. What ’em early!  6. – “Outlander”: Why aren’t more people talking about the second season of “Outlander”? I think it’s just as strong as the first.

Random Thoughts…

  • Finally got around to watching the premiere of TBS’s comedy “Wrecked” last night. I dug the “Lost” vibe, but the jokes weren’t landing for me. (No pun intended) I’ll give it another shot.
  • If I was Tom Brady, I would have phoned into last night’s Ben Affleck/Bill Simmons love fest on “Any Given Wednesday” and asked them to cool it a bit. That, or I would’ve swam in my money.
  • Last night’s rocket challenge on “Big Brother” was a little…inappropriate…for younger viewers.
