Weekend Binge Guide: November 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:     Red Oaks See all reviews for Red Oaks I wasn’t alive for the ‘80s, but this show feels pretty on point to me. Country clubs, legwarmers, drugs, alcohol, Bar Mitzvahs, homemade sex tapes… that’s all the ‘80s was, right? The MVP here is definitely Craig Roberts, as David, who grounds the show amidst a wacky cast of characters. The “Freaky Friday” episode, during which he swaps bodies with his dad (Richard Kind), reveals the extent of Roberts’s range and was without a doubt my favorite episode. Red Oaks is a quick, fun binge — all ten episodes of season 1 can be streamed via Amazon Prime.   If you want to cry:     The Leftovers See all reviews for The Leftovers Based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, who also produced and co-created the show, The Leftovers takes a bleaker outlook than its source material. After two percent of the world’s population vanishes in a Rapture-like event, the remaining survivors are left to deal with the fallout. Make no mistake, this is not a triumph of misfits banding together in the face of hardship. Some attempt, and ultimately fail, to understand The Departure, while others seek to move on and build a new way of life for themselves. Each character struggles in their own unique way, their flaws made increasingly obvious as the show goes on, resulting in an exquisite slice of the human experience that is as painful to watch as it is beautiful.   If you want to scream:     How to Get Away With Murder See all reviews for  How to Get Away With Murder People are just getting murdered left and right on this show and apparently no one is safe this season. They don’t shy away from the gore either; I didn’t think it was possible, but it seems like the murders are actually getting more gruesome. What will really make you scream however, is the idea that lawyers carry on this way in real life. In her spare time between cases, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) runs around framing people for murder, orchestrating an increasingly complicated web of coverups, and occasionally visiting clubs and flirting inappropriately with her law students. Not exactly who I’d want representing me, but it makes for amazing television. The first season is available on Netflix.   If you want to think:     Sense8 See all reviews for  Sense8 Sense8 follows eight people across the world who begin to experience a telepathic connection to each other and sci-fi meets spirituality as the lines between self are blurred. The link between the characters starts gradually but eventually they can share thoughts, emotions, skills, and even project themselves into each others’ bodies, resulting in more than a few amazing fight sequences. This show has it all: it is funny, suspenseful, sexy, and thought-provoking. It’s another quick binge, only twelve episodes; you can watch the Wachowskis’ most recent creation in its entirety on Netflix. p { text-align: justify; }

Christopher Eccleston on Playing the Unluckiest, Most Optimistic Character on The Leftovers

  The Leftovers Reverend Matt Jamison is as dedicated to his wife Mary as he is to his belief in god.
