Hello, honeybees, and welcome to the latest edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz, our weekly series where we recommend a list of new things to watch to all of you movies and TV shows lovers like us. This week, inspired by the confirmation of season two of The Mysterious Benedict Society, we’re doing a Disney+ originals edition. We love Disney more than we could ever put into words, so this edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz was bound to happen at some point. So let’s dive in!
The Mysterious Benedict Society
What happens when you combine four gifted children and a strange man who recruits them for a secret mission? You get one of Disney+’s most spectacular and engaging shows of all time: The Mysterious Benedict Society. We won’t give you major spoilers, but here’s the show’s basic idea: something fishy is happening on a global scale, and four children are recruited to help stop it. And in the middle of all the mystery, topics like friendship and acceptance also have their time to shine. Right now, the show only has one season, but it has just been announced that we’ll be getting a second one very soon—Yay, perfect time to binge-watch the first eight episodes.
Big Shot is, among many things, a pretty awesome feel-good show. When you first look at the premise of a short-fused basketball coach getting fired and having to teach at a fancy all-girl school, you may think, “uhh, what?” but the great script and characters immediately pull you in. And also, it’s a show centered around a sports team, and it has a primarily female cast? Amazing!
We love Pixar movies even if they make us cry like babies, so this documentary about the inner workings of one of the greatest animation studios ever has us wrapped around its finger. The moments we get to hear from actual Pixar employees, all the behind-the-scenes we see from the movies we love, it’s all perfect for when you need the magic of Pixar with a dash of reality and a little less tears rolling down your face at the end.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
Once again, we must spread the word of HSMTMTS. This show came for our nostalgic little hearts, and it somehow won us over for entirely different reasons. Seeing new characters in a familiar setting can either go really well or really poorly. We’re glad it went well this time. Nini, Ricky, Gina, Kourtney, and all their friends won us over instantly and continue to do so throughout both seasons already available. We can’t wait for season three to roll around.
Encore! should definitely be on your list for all our musical theatre lovers if it isn’t already. Each episode brings together a whole cast of former high school theatre kids to reprise their roles in a musical they’ve done together years prior. It’s enjoyable to see how people changed and how they react to being around their high school friends once again, all while putting together a whole show in one week. It’s chaotic and fun at the same time.
And this is the end of this week’s Binge-Worthy Buzz! We hope you’ve enjoyed it and stay around to read more! If you want, you can comment your thoughts or tweet us @TheHoneyPOP!
