Hello honeybees, how are ya? It’s been a week, which means we’re back here for another Binge-Worthy Buzz! In case you’re unfamiliar, this is our weekly series where we give you a great list of new recommendations of what to watch next so you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Shall we get started?
Never Have I Ever
You all knew this was coming, don’t lie! The new season of Never Have I Ever dropped this week on Netflix and we’ve already finished it and now we’re here to tell you why you should definitely watch it too if you haven’t already. But don’t worry, we won’t give you any spoilers. We want you to lose your mind watching it all just like we did.
After the events at the end of the last season, we were all (not so) patiently waiting for the next set of episodes to tell us what Devi and her buddies would be up to next. And, as usual, NHIE did not disappoint! This season, we have a more mature Devi, far from being the most perfect person at Sherman Oaks High, but a far cry from the selfish immature Devi from season one. But the essence of the show stays the same. For example, we still have the good old love triangle going on and Devi still has her awesome friend group there to support her in her decisions (good and bad.) We better stop talking before we spoil that finale.
We talked about this one a while ago when it dropped on Disney+, but Rise made its way back onto BWB because this time, it’ll become available on Hulu and ESPN+ starting August 18! Yep, that’s how good the movie is. In case you missed it the first time, we’ll give you a quick summary of the movie’s story. Firstly, it was inspired by the real-life story of the Antetokounmpos family.
If that name sounds familiar it’s because the three brothers at the center of the story are huge basketball legends. After their family movies from Nigeria to Greece, the Antetokounmpo brothers discover they’re kind of great at basketball despite their “late arrival” to the sport. And that talent sets them on a path to become three of the greatest players NBA teams have ever seen.
Yes, yes, we’re talking about Marvel again, you can judge us if you want. But we’ll keep doing it anyway because they keep giving us more new content to rant about. This is basically their fault, really. Our topic of choice this time is the new Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
The She-Hulk in question is Jennifer Walters, an attorney with quite the task at hand: she’s now responsible for all superhero-related cases at the law firm she works at. On top of that, she has everything else that comes with being a single woman with an “anger management problem,” as Tony Stark would put it. Meaning, of course, that she’s a Hulk, like Dr. Bruce Banner, who, by the way, will be on this show too. That’s got to be easy… right? Well, we’ll see about that on August 18, when the show comes to Disney+.
On The Count Of Three
Ok, as much as we wanted to talk about On The Count Of Three, we do need to give you all a content warning beforehand. This is a dark humor movie with lots of talk about heavy themes, such as abuse, depression, and death, so if you don’t think you want to deal with those, we suggest you maybe skip this one.
But in case you still want to watch it, here’s the gist: two best friends, Val and Kevin, make a pact to make this the last day of their lives after their feelings of hopelessness keep on growing. And based on their pact, the duo decides to go off and tie up all the loose ends in their lives. The 2021 movie is currently available on Hulu.
If you’re a fan of a good thriller, we may have found the perfect show for you on Apple TV+. Bad Sisters starts streaming on August 19 and we can’t wait to see where it goes. The show follows the Garvey sisters, who all promise to stand by and protect one another after their parents’ death.
Cut to a while after those deaths, the five sisters are at another funeral, this time, for the husband of one of the sisters, Grace. But the other four girls don’t seem too sad to see their brother-in-law gone. Based on their reactions, they’re being investigated because who knows, maybe the vow to protect their sister made them take things a little too far? Guess we’ll have to watch to find out.
Dragons: The Nine Realms
On August 18, we’ll find out what happens after the gang discovers the Fire Realm, and every day it’s harder and harder to hide the fact that dragons are very much alive and kicking (or should we say flying?) The stakes keep rising and to make it even more complicated, there’s also the issue of Jun’s nosy brother getting dangerously closer to finding out about the dragons.
If we had to describe Hotties in a single word, it’d be “wild.” Why you ask? Because it is the perfect combination of a dating show like Love Is Blind, cooking shows like MasterChef, and any episode of Hot Ones. Yes, we know that sounds kind of weird, but we promise it makes sense.
Here’s how the show works: two couples are set up for blind dates and battle to come up with the best date-night dishes, But there’s a catch: if they want to make it to the actual date night, they have to eat some super spicy food along the way. And if that weren’t enough, they’ll also have the host, Jade Catta-Preta, judge their food and their dates. At the end of each episode, the couple with the best dish, date, or both, wins. Hulu really does bring us some wildly interesting concepts, huh? Either way, you can definitely catch us binge-watching this one since all episodes are already available.
13: The Musical
And here it is, the musical choice of the week. Netflix’s 13: The Musical just had to be here and we’ll tell you why. The main character is Evan Goldman, a kid from New York City who moves to a small town after his parents’ divorce. At 12 years old. Fun, isn’t it? Now he has to start it all over and make new friends in this strange place called small-town middle school. In order to do that, he decides the only way is to make his Bar Mitzvah the greatest party the town has ever seen.
Other characters worthy of note are Patrice, Evan’s new neighbor who has a crush on him; Brett, the popular kid at the school; Kendra, the girl Brett has a crush on; and Lucy, Kendra’s best friend who has a crush on Brett. Yeah, that’s gonna cause some drama. And we love to see it (in films only, of course.) Also, knowing Lucy will be played by Frankie McNellis just makes it all the more exciting because we know that girl can sing, dance, and act like crazy! We can’t wait to see her drag poor Evan into her plans to stop Brett and Kendra from getting together.
And this marks the end of this week’s Binge-Worthy Buzz. We hope you’ve enjoyed our selections and spent some time on your couch enjoying them. If you did, please tell us so on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. We always love to hear your thoughts!
