Weekend Binge Guide: December 2017

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-­watch one of these shows instead:

 

If you want to laugh:

 

The Mick

See all reviews for The Mick

At first glance this show is straight up cray. At second glance you realize your instincts are right. Mick, played by Kaitlin Olson, is everything any It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fan would ever want her to be. She is crude, rude, irresponsible, a mess, unemployed and likely insane. Did I mention the show is about Mick getting custody of her wealthy sister’s three kids? She's not the most ideal guardian, but in a way she brings a healthy new perspective to the spoiled, privileged children. Together they get into a lot of trouble, most of which is completely illegal and sometimes shocking to watch. All of that crazy put into one story is the perfect combo for a laughter-induced binge weekend.

 

If you want to scream:

 

The Walking Dead

Yes this zombie post-apocalyptic dystopia has a massive fan base that already religiously views the series. Maybe even re-binge watching the seasons after they’re over. The addition of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the epic battle of all the surviving clans has made this show so much more than what it was in the beginning: people trying not to get eaten by walkers. Some still do, but not as often. In fact, the most horrific deaths in the past season have been from Negan’s Lucile. So if you’ve fallen out of touch with the show, awesome! Time to binge watch Season 7 and 8 (ongoing), and find out who will come out on top in this war of the new worlds.

 

If you want to cry:

 

Sense8

Already trying not to cry over the horrible news of the cancellation. Honestly you may never see another series that moves you, intrigues you, and opens your mind to other possibilities of human connectedness. It shows you the world, give you insight into a multitude of cultures and still has phenomenal acting, writing, directing, and an absolute explosion of creativity. I will personally miss this series. The eight strangers who found a way to connect to each other subconsciously have taken us on a worldwide tour of love, lust, pain, imprisonment, adventure, and some steamy sexcapades. They have now found a way to each other physically and we will get to see how that epic gathering unfolds in the special final episode of the series next year.

Primal Survivor

Talk about taking us on a worldwide tour! Primal Survivor's Hazen Audel is a survival expert who takes on tasks, favors and some long journeys for local communities he visits all around the world. He not only visits these villages, he becomes one of them. He learns the language, wears the tribal attire, eats whatever he is given or is available, all while maintaining a remarkably calm and warm demeanor. He teaches you about each tribe, their history and purpose, and how they survive in simpler, yet more difficult societies and climates. Primal Survivor is for the National Geographic Channel, so you know the quality, picture and content of this scenic documentary is simply remarkable.

I love how dark "The Mick" is for a network comedy. One of my favorites!

Good suggestions, all ones that I seen :) As an alternative to the very serious Walking Dead, you could try Z Nation.
