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.

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.

XFINITY Binge-Watching Guide: Here Are Our Picks, What Are Yours?

June 17, 2016

You know the deal; every week I give you my picks for shows that you should binge-watch and you promptly run off to watch them. Well…that’s what I assume you do.

But why do I have all of the power in this relationship? Seems arrogant. So, this week I want you to leave me your picks for shows that are binge-worthy in our new comment section.

MrRobot GameofThrones
 1. – “Mr. Robot”:  My wife and I are trying to plow through season one of this before it returns on July 13th.
 2. – “Game of Thrones”How is this season already so close to its finale? HBO should be forced to commit to 52-week seasons.
BarelyFamous SiliconValley
   3. – “Barely Famous”:  Season 2 of this under-the-radar comedy gem premieres June 29th.
 4. – “Silicon Valley”: The third season of this HBO comedy hasn’t been my favorite, but it’s still worth a watch before next Sunday’s finale.
TheDetour Veep
  5. – “The Detour”: One of our favorite new shows this year. And “The Restaurant” episode is an instant classic.  6. – “Veep”: Are we ready to have the conversation about Julia Louis-Dreyfus being one of the funniest television actors of all time yet? I’d put “Seinfeld” and “Veep” against anyone’s resume.
