What to Stream during Quarantine
Eat, sleep, watch TV, and repeat. Maybe that dusty treadmill in the garage isn’t getting much attention this quarantine, but your TV sure is! Here are our top 5 shows to stream right now in quarantine.
Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness (Netflix)
Unless you’re living under a rock or, perhaps, a zoo in Oklahoma, you’ve heard about this jaw dropping Netflix documentary series. This series features seven episodes, each about 45 minutes long, with an additional reunion episode hosted by comedian, Joel McHale. The series follows several tiger owners across the country, but most famously, the Tiger King himself, Joe Exotic. This is one series you’re going to want to binge, so go get ‘em tiger!
Little Fires Everywhere (Hulu)
Stop, drop and roll, because Reese Witherspoon has done it again. In this mini series, based on the New York Times best selling novel by Celeste Ng, the picture perfect neighborhood is disrupted when a new family moves in. This Hulu series stars powerhouses, Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies, The Morning Show) and Kerry Washington (Scandal). With only eight episodes, you’ll wish there were more!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Season 3 (Amazon)
We all could use a laugh right now, and no one brings the funny better than the cast of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. From the creators of Gilmore Girls, this series follows a 1950’s housewife turned comedian and has just entered its third season. With Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards), Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and Alex Borstein (MadTV, Family Guy), this show is truly marvelous, and if you don’t believe me, ask their gajillion Emmys.
Too Hot To Handle (Netflix)
If you’re looking for mindless television, look no further, because Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle is for YOU. This reality show follows a group of perfect-looking, thirsty, singles staying at an island resort. Oh, there’s one more thing– they’re not allowed to be intimate. Yup. There’s a $100,000 prize if everyone can adhere to the “sex ban”. Whether or not reality shows are your thing, there’s no doubt that this show will be all anyone’s talking about.
Mrs. America (Hulu)
Two words: Cate Blanchett. That’s right! She’s back in this historical mini-series on Hulu. The series follows the real women and true events around the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. If you’re not sold yet, wait till you hear the cast. This series stars Cate Blanchett, Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Elizabeth Banks (Pitch perfect, The Hunger Games) and so many more. If you’re looking for something to binge, this show has my VOTE!
There you have it. Now cancel those zoom meetings and get streaming!
