BINGE-Y TV SHOWS It's a strange paradox, but I often find myself not wanting to commit to the full narrative of a two-hour movie, opting instead for TV show binge that culminates to the equivalent of, say, five two-hour movies. Hibernating this weekend is the perfect excuse to catch up on a light comedy, rewatch a favorite, or finally see what the buzz is about with that new show. Broad City (Hulu)Hulu is finally up-to-date with Comedy Central's "Broad City," meaning you can watch – or rewatch – all four seasons ahead of the fifth season premiere, which airs Thursday, Jan. 24.

Verne Gay Newsday Published 11:12 p.m. UTC Jul 25, 2018 August is around the corner, and while the world may seem to slow down — the dog days, and all that — TV marches on. Here are seven shows to look for next month: Aug. 3 “Animals” (HBO, 11:30 p.m.) And just like that, this oddball animated series about the anthropomorphic misdeeds of New York City urban wildlife (from bed bugs to pigeons) is back for a third season. The co-creators are Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano. What to expect in the third? The series visits a “humanless, post-apocalyptic Big Apple” — which naturally means talking cockroaches. Aug. 6 “Better Call Saul” (AMC, 9 p.m.) One of the treasures of the small screen returns with an episode called “Smoke” — quite possibly a reference to the fire that consumed the house of Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) brother, Chuck (Michael McKean)?

The streaming service has turned binge-watching into a way of life. It has eliminated the time-consuming practice of forcing TV producers to make pilots. It designs some of its series by using its extensive statistics on audience behavior. It doesn’t make its shows’ ratings public. And it releases a ton of titles, some 1,000 this year, including both the original shows it makes and those it acquires and distributes. There are so many shows on Netflix, it sometimes feels like you’re picking through a Filene’s Basement bin to find what you want, all while that ping-pong sound bounces around the room. Good shows get buried in the heap, while bad ones show up on your screen every time you enter the service’s home base. Here, then, is a selection of some of the … [Read more...] about What to watch on Netflix June 2018
