With many advised and bound to stay home to limit the spread of Omicron virus in Qatar, we’ve got a list of recommendations for you to binge watch this January.
With Omicron virus on the rise in Qatar and new restrictions in place, many are advised to stay home or are bound to, to limit the spread of the virus. In this time of social isolation, yet again, sure you can always declutter, revamp or Marie Kondo your home, but you may also wonder what shows or series are worth binge watching. We’ve got you covered there with a list of recently released series we recommend.
Euphoria Season 2
The new season of Euphoria has been a long time coming for those who’ve binged the high school drama, which wrapped its first season back in summer 2019. During the pandemic, HBO premiered two special episodes focusing on Rue and Jules, played by Hunter Schafer. But this weekend, the story picks back up again with the much-anticipated Euphoria Season 2 premiere on HBO Max.
Emily in Paris Season 2
The highly anticipated second season of Emily in Paris finally hit Netflix, just in time for fans to binge it over now. The 10-episode season sees marketing exec Emily (Lily Collins) continuing to embrace the City of Light, with a few faux pas along the way. She even (finally) sets out to learn the language, joining a French class where she meets British finance bro Alfie. Soon enough, she ends up in yet another love triangle, this time involving Alfie and her lingering love, Gabriel. What’s next for her? You’d have to watch it and know. The season has already been renewed for Season 3 and 4.
One of Marvel’s biggest recent tentpoles has finally hit streaming. This one has a stellar diverse cast, including Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, and Salma Hayek, and was directed by Oscar-winner Chloe Zhao. The plot follows a group of immortal beings as they fight to save humanity all while uncovering the truth about their true existence.
How I Met Your Father
You have to wait a few days before this one. Coming out on January 18, Hilary Duff stars as Sophie, who, in the near future, is telling her son the story of how she met his father. Like the original series How I Met Your Mother, HIMYF takes us back to 2022, when Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
The DCEU is following Disney Plus’ lead, giving a spinoff show from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. And while the movie had so many interesting misfit villains to choose from, nobody should be surprised to see that it’s WWE champion John Cena’s Peacemaker who got the call to extend the DC Universe to HBO Max.
As We See It
Friday Night Lights and Parenthood are good-tier shows, so anything Jason Katims creates is going to be on our radar. Like those series, As We See It looks like it tugs at the heartstrings and swells the emotions. The three leads are all on the autism spectrum, playing characters who are grappling with similar conditions. The show follows twentysomething roommates Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki), and Violet (Sue Ann Pien). With the support of family, aides and each other, they strive to get and keep jobs, make friends and fall in love. Along the way, they experience setbacks and celebrate triumphs, just like any young adult in a journey for independence.
Ozark Season 4, part 1
The first half of the supersized final season finds the Byrdes tethered in a dangerous position. Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) have proven their value to kingpin Navarro (Felix Solis), but can they really trust the trigger-happy drug lord? Navarro isn’t even the Byrdes’ only problem in Ozark season 4. Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) has turned on them and has teamed up with Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery) in her heroin operation.
