Weekend Binge Guide: June 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:   Broad City See all reviews for Broad City In this web series -turned-TV-sitcom, two absolutely ridiculous yet somehow still relatable best friends explore NYC alongside quirky friends, co-workers, and male companions (calling all Hannibal Burress fans!). Executive produced by Amy Poehler, it’s no surprise that every episode is jam-packed with unexpected and (my favorite) uncomfortable humor.       If you want to cry:   The Good Wife See all reviews for The Good Wife After State’s Attorney Peter Florrick’s corruption and sex scandal go public, you can’t help but take pity on his loyal wife Alicia, who must resurrect her law career to hold their family together. The perfect mix of serial and procedural, this political-law drama is smart, sexy, and well, one of the few shows I’m not at all ashamed to be hooked on.       If you want to scream:   Intervention See all reviews for  Intervention Definitely not for the faint of heart, this long-running documentary series follows addicts of all kinds as they painstakingly trudge through everyday life, before finally agreeing to rehabilitation. Fourteen seasons later and I still wince at the sight of needles and blood on-screen, but the success stories are enough to keep me watching.       If you want to think:   Suits See all reviews for  Suits Suits follows a big-shot corporate lawyer who hires a brilliant associate with a photographic mind…but without a law degree. Now I know what you’re thinking: "…another legal drama?" (Yes, and I’m confident you’ll thank me later.) I flew through the first four seasons in a matter of weeks (days, if I’m being honest), and now I’m counting down the hours until the season 5 premiere (mark your calendars and set your alarms for June 24!).

Preview: Addict Realizes She's on Intervention, Threatens To Bring Down Production

In its weekly intro, A&E's  Intervention  explains that the show ropes in its subjects by presenting itself as a "documentary about addiction." You understand how this could work for a while, but for a show that's been around for as long as it has (its 10th season!), you'd expect someone to catch on. That's exactly what happens on Monday's episode, which premieres at 10/9c. What makes it worse is that on the episode, interventions are being planned for two people (enmeshed heroin addict couple Sarah and Mikeal) and so when Sarah figures out what show she's on, she threatens to intervene in Mikeal's intervention by telling him about it in advance. It's riveting — reality TV is rarely this suspenseful. Read More... //

A&E Network's "Obsessed" & "Intervention" Return Back-to-Back On June 28th!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, JUNE 2, 2010 -- A&E 's 2009 Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Reality Program Intervention and critically lauded Obsessed (A&E) return for all-new seasons with back-to-back premieres on Monday, June 28 at 9/8c and 10/9c. In a series first, the ninth season premiere of "Intervention" will feature an intervention on two generations of the same family. Raised by alcoholic parents, Donna, a mother of 47, was exposed to violence and abuse at an early age, and later drank so heavily that she lost custody of her two children. Josh, now 20, has moved back in with Donna, and they have become drinking buddies. Both mother and son need help to stop the cycle of alcoholism from being passed down to another generation of their family. Twice nominated and last year awarded the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Series, the five-time PRISM Award-winning series "Intervention" profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis or estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the addict, and which is conducted by one of two specialists: Jeff Van Vonderen and Candy Finnigan. Exclusive updated interviews with past subjects from the series first eight seasons are available on The series has conducted 161 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, 130 individuals are currently sober. The second season of "Obsessed," will feature some of the most compelling stories to date including: a father of two whose overwhelming obsession with odd numbers has left him jobless, living out of his car and unable to function on odd numbered days; a father and his two grown daughters who suffer from agoraphobia and who are all attempting to break the family "curse" which prevents them from being able to venture more than a few miles from the safety of their homes; a musician whose life is completely consumed by hand motion rituals that can take up to 10 hours to complete; a recovered alcoholic whose fear of contamination is so extreme that he washes his hands up to 150 times a day and lives in fear that another alcoholic will contaminate him and cause him to return to drinking; and a young budding artist who believes that her checking, tapping and counting rituals are currently keeping her mother from dying of cancer. "Obsessed" takes viewers inside the minds and lives of Americans whose anxiety has taken complete command of their existence. Individuals whose loved ones have witnessed the disorder take them prisoner, living at the mercy of their uncontrollable thoughts and ritualistic behaviors. From OCD, to agoraphobia and germophobia, these disorders trigger from an emotionally traumatic event and eventually snowball until the individual is a shadow of their former self. The series documents both their afflictions and their courageous attempts to defeat and overcome them. Highly trained therapists use desensitization and exposure therapy, whereby the patients are increasingly exposed to what causes their anxiety until the feelings begin to fade. Viewers will be moved as patients heal, make amazing progress and slowly but surely, take their lives back. Inspired by the incredible response from viewers, individuals and families in recovery to "Intervention," A&E Network along with leading federal agencies and non-profit organizations launched The Recovery Project. The multi-year, multi-platform initiative was designed to help raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible. This past September more than 10,000 people, including individuals and families in recovery, treatment partners and advocates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, gathered in New York City for a historic walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to symbolize unity and hope for recovery. The walk ended in Cadman Plaza and was followed by a rally featuring public speakers and a performance by Smokey Robinson. A&E continues to co-host, along with the Partnership for a Drug Free America (PDFA), and leading MSOs such as Time Warner Cable, Cox and Comcast, Intervention Town Hall meetings in cities across the country. The Town Hall meetings offer opportunities for parents, teens, addicts, government officials, health professionals, substance abuse prevention experts and educators to develop a better understanding about the root causes and consequences of addiction. "Intervention" is produced by GRB Productions for A&E Network. Gary Benz, Michael Branton, Dan Partland and Sam Mettler are executive producers. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway. "Obsessed" is produced by Tijuana Entertainment for A&E Network. Troy Searer, John Foy and Rob LaPlante are executive producers. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow, Scott Lonker and Jordana Hochman.
