8 shows to binge watch through a Snowpocalypse
OK people, you heard the news, it's time to "hunker down" and "stay put" and "shelter in place." The snow is coming! Get out there and buy your bread and milk (i.e. wine), then put your PJs on, cuddle up on the couch and fire up the AppleTV/Roku/Chromecast/Firestick.
Here are 8 shows that you can stream now to get you through your cabin fever:
Master of None (find it on Netflix)
Created and written by Aziz Asari, Master of None follows "Dev," a New Yorker with a new job and a new girl. I wasn't expecting to like this show but Aziz is actually pretty quirky and sweet. ION: Aziz's real parents play Dev's parents on the show and they are adorable.
I am obsessed with GG2D. It's like a shallow, L.A. version of Sex and the City but it's on Bravo. It's funny and heartbreaking all at the same time (hint: it's about divorce). Season one was great and season two is even better.
Casual (find it on Hulu)
Another one about the aftereffects of divorce. Bummer subject matter but great cast and realistic, yet awkward, story lines. This was my favorite new show of the fall.
Nurse Jackie (find it on Netflix)
If you didn't have Showtime for that past 5 years you might have missed out on Nurse Jackie. Lucky for you, Netflix picked up all seven seasons. Edie Falco plays Jackie Peyton: liar, adultress and drug addict. But no one knows all that...yet. The supporting cast is fabulous too.
Life in Pieces (find it on CBS)
I will admit: I don't watch CBS. Ever. It's for old people. But Life in Pieces snuck up on me and now I can't shake it. It's like Modern Family but...different. Give it a shot. Betsy Brandt from Breaking Bad and Colin Hanks from Fargo (Tom Hanks son) are just two stars that make up the great cast.
Jessica Jones (find it on Netflix)
I happened upon this one by accident. I didn't know it was a Marvel comic or involved supernatural powers (not usually my thing). I just knew it was Krysten Ritter solving crimes in NYC and I had to see it. Well, it's that and a lot more. Jessica Jones kicks ass.
Making a Murderer (find on Netflix)
If you haven't already watched this, what are you waiting for? Get on it! And once you're done, read my "5 emotions you'll feel after watching Making a Murderer" here to help you process what you just witnessed.
