5 Shows to Binge During Thanksgiving Weekend

So you’ve eaten your turkey (for the 4th time), you’ve taken your nap, now what? Instead of listening to your uncle explain how the election was stolen from Trump, how about binging a few shows? Now is a GREAT time to plug in some headphones and start catching up on some of Hollywoods’ recent bangers. What should you watch? Glad you asked. Here are 5 shows we recommend checking out over your long Thanksgiving weekend.

 The Boys – Amazon Prime

 

We talk about this show a lot and it’s because it’s THAT GOOD. So do yourself a favor and start watching the first two seasons.

 

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion – HBO Max

 

This is a MUST WATCH. If you are a fan of the Fresh Prince, you should have watched it as soon as it came out. SHAME ON YOU. But now is the time to watch it. Also, you might cry.

 

The Mandalorian – Disney+

 

If you’re looking for space westerns, this is your guy. It’s got everything. Lasers. Helmets. Frog people. Talking robots. What more could you want? Also, you can finally find out what all the ‘Baby Yoda’ fuss is about.

 

Star Trek: Discovery – CBS All Access

 

This show is NOT a space western. But if you’re into time travel, spores, Doug Jones, and a lead character who cries every 40 seconds, this is the show for you. It is currently on its third season, so you have plenty of episodes to occupy your time.

 

Animaniacs – Hulu

 

Last but certainly not LEAST, it’s Animaniacs. This reboot is just perfect. It could not be any better. Plus, you get a TON of Pinky and the Brain. While you’re at it, binge the entire 90’s series. It’s on Hulu as well.

 

Will There Be A Tremors 8?

If you haven’t seen Tremors: Shrieker Island (the 7th and latest movie in the franchise), watch it on Netflix and then come back to this article. If you don’t care about spoilers – then continue reading.

From Borg to xB: Jonathan Del Arco Discusses Hugh

He first appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Fan said goodbye to him in Star Trek: Picard.

But is it really over?

Jonathan Del Arco addresses what it is like being a part of the Star Trek universe and if we’ve really seen the last of Hugh.

Jonathan Del Arco

Michael: If I was the writer on there [Picard], I would have let you live. Just so you know.

I appreciate that.

But you know, it is Star Trek. No one ever really dies.

Michael: That’s what I was getting at. Thanos snapped half the world away, and in the next movie, everyone’s back and they beat him up.

Right.

Michael: So, do you think Hugh can come back at some point? Do you have hope that Hugh might come back at a later date?

I mean, you should never give up hope. I don’t see it in the cards. I’ve not been talked to about it. I don’t think the writers, that’s where they’re at right now. But you never know down the line. There’s so many incarnations of Star Trek, so many different kinds of shows that happen. You never know. I didn’t think I’d come back now and here I am.

Michael: It’s sad that your character died before reuniting with Geordi. Were you a little disappointed?

Very disappointed.

I was surprised and I had asked them, “why don’t I ask about Geordi?” I don’t understand why Geordi is not being addressed in any way. Maybe they had plans for using him later on and they didn’t want to muddy up the storytelling. I have no idea. But yeah, I was definitely bummed.

I was bummed I didn’t have a scene with Jeri [Ryan]. I was bummed I didn’t have a scene with Whoopi [Goldberg] or with literally any of the characters that the character initially knew well. I was super bummed that we never got to that.

Eric: With you playing the Hugh character, there’s not a drop of gayness. There is one scene between you and Elnor, they’re kind of hinting towards something, but I know there’s nothing for sure… 

Well, I made a choice to love him. My choice. It wasn’t in the script.

You caught it.

It’s tricky because we didn’t have many scenes together and we had to get to a very emotional moment, very quickly. I had to die, basically, in his arms. I wanted something more powerful than just like, “hey, there’s a guy that’s been hanging out, that’s cute, for a few days.” and then die in his arms.

I wanted some investment for myself. The idea that they were seeing–like maybe you never saw what happened between the two of them? I definitely wanted to, kind of, float that out there. So I just used myself, you know? How I would respond to someone like that and the idea of being a droid your whole life and never loving someone.

And then maybe, right before you die, you do.

It’s kind of a moving thing, you know?

Peacock: Is It Worth the Download?

Peacock has entered the streaming wars. The NBC platform launched last week and boasts of over 20,000 hours of shows, sports, and movies. But the question we have is, is it worth the download? Is it really worth downloading another app and possibly paying another subscription?

What to Know

There are 3 Tiers – Free, Paid ($5), & Paid+ ($10)
One of the things that makes Peacock stand out from the crowd is that it offers a free plan. It’s a nice little break from having to shell out more money for another streaming service that you may or may not use. The free plan has commercials of course, but that’s understandable. The free plan also offers a lot of content, but if you want more, you have to sign up for the paid version. The paid version unlocks all the content Peacock has to offer. Want all the content but no ads? Peacock has you covered, but you gotta pay $5 more.

Live Streaming Channels
Another stand-out feature is Peacock’s streaming channels. These are not network streams, but more specialized ‘themed’ streams much like PlutoTV. For example, they have channels that stream clips from The Office, SNL, and  even Bob Ross. It’s a nice little addition to the service.

Not Available on Roku or Amazon Fire TV
This is very unfortunate. Just like HBO Max, Peacock did not secure a deal with Roku or Amazon before launch. Roku and Amazon make up most of the streaming devices in America, so there is a good portion of the population that won’t be able to access the app on their TVs at the time. We hope a deal gets in place soon.

So, is it worth it?

It’s doesn’t hurt to keep the free plan. The streaming channels are great. However, the paid version may not be worth the money at this time. However, it does have way more to offer than AppleTV+, but that’s another story…
