What to Binge Watch This Holiday Break

With the holidays here, we’re in that weird time between Christmas and New Years when all the world seems to be holding it’s breath. Don’t worry, we’ve selected some incredible titles for you to enjoy. Nothing says the holidays like a good “Holiday Binge” over the break.

Our first holiday binge selection is The Witcher. This highly anticipated Netflix series stars Henry Cavill, and follows the book series of the same title, which birthed an impressive video gaming empire. Now it’s a series, and honestly, can we just get Geralt (Henry) nude in a bathtub in every shot?

HBO’s highly anticipated and star studded His Dark Materials has come to an astounding finish of its first season. We can’t champion this series enough. Whatever you do, find some way to add this to your watch list. With stellar storylines and top notch acting, Phillip Pullman’s The Golden Compass finally receives the screen time it deserves.

We’ve been missing a show that incorporates music, and Netflix has delivered a heartfelt and well written show in Soundtrack. Set around LA to contemporary music with an exemplary cast, Soundtrack is great for anyone looking for music and drama in their holiday.

Of course the holiday gift Netflix timed to give us after Santa’s big day is You season 2. How is in LA, under a new name, with new motives, and many, many bad decisions. See where “Will” formerly known as Joe goes in his new city.

Lovers of DC can also take this time to catch up with HBO’s Watchmen series. You can enjoy this series whether you’ve seen the film or not, however, seeing both does have it’s advantages. Afterall, a good detective story is always a win during a binge session.

Netflix has also gotten into developing their own original Anime series. We can’t recommend Carole & Tuesday enough. What begins as a run of the mill young girls making it in music story, turns into a thoughtful and well thought out timely conversation starter. The show tackles relevant and real political and socio-economic issues. Yet Carole & Tuesday will also delight viewers with sweet melodies, and an underdog determination you can’t stop watching. Don’t let this gem slip under your radar.
