XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: Beat-the-Heat Edition

July 22, 2016

I don’t know if everyone knows this, but your weekly binge-watching list originates from the City of Brotherly Love…Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And if you’ll check your favorite weather site, you’ll learn that we’re facing temperatures in the high 9os this weekend.

That’s no good.

I intend on spending my weekend indoors, getting better acquainted with my air conditioning, and catching up on some of these top titles…

GameofThrones Entourage
 1. –“Game of Thrones”Are you already caught up on this epic series? Watch it again. I picked up so much when I did a rewatch.
 2. – “Entourage”: I always compare “Ballers” to “Entourage,” but I hadn’t seen an episode of “Entourage” recently. So, with “Ballers” coming back, I wanted to see if the comparison was valid. I watching the pilot and got sucked in. I’m in the middle of Season 3 right now.
Power RayDonovan
   3. – “Power”: The season premiere was awesome. If you’ve never seen this show, you can plow through the first two season quickly.
 4. – “Ray Donovan”: Showtime’s biggest summer title seems to be in the middle of another hot season.
OddMomOut Greenleaf
  5. – “Odd Mom Out”: – The sophomore slump hasn’t hit this hilarious comedy. And we’ve got every episode online.  6. – “Greenleaf”: Oprah’s new drama is a hit in our office. Every Thursday we get together to talk about the previous night’s episode.

XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: Emmy Nominations Edition

July 15, 2016

The Emmy nominations were announced this past Thursday, and for the most part they were right on the mark. The ceremony won’t be held until September 18th, so you have until then to watch every episode of every nominated title.

OK, maybe that’s a little extreme, but here are my picks for the ones you should try to catch up on this weekend.

GameofThrones Veep
 1. –“Game of Thrones”: Last year’s Outstanding Drama winner is back and some could argue that this season was better than the previous one. 
 2. – “Veep”: Remember what I just said about “Game of Thrones”? Recycle that comment but replace the word “Drama” with “Comedy.”
SiliconValley RayDonovan
   3. – “Silicon Valley”: Even after what I consider to be a very uneven season, “Silicon Valley” is still one of the best comedies on TV.
 4. – “Ray Donovan”Liev Schreiber’s Lead Actor in a Drama nod is very well deserved.
OrphanBlack Homeland


  5. – “Orphan Black”: – Tatiana Maslany doesn’t just deserve one Emmy, she deserves an Emmy for each role she plays on this amazing series.  6. – “Homeland”: Here’s a show that seemed to level off after a hot start, but it really picked up steam again this season.
