Hi there, honeybees, and welcome to another edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz. Each week, we strive to bring you a new set of shows, documentaries, movies, and more, so you don’t have to find them all by yourself. We have a lot to get through today so let’s dive in!
I Hope You’re Proud
Alex Warren is Atlantic Records’ latest signed artist, and with reason! The dude has a handful of bangers to his name already and he’s on the road for more of them for sure. He’s been sharing his life with the internet for over a decade, which has gathered him a huge following who are sure to love his label debut single, ‘HeadLights,’ which comes out on September 2. But why are we talking about a singer on Binge-Worthy Buzz? Simple, he has a docuseries coming out on his YouTube channel we thought you might enjoy!
On August 26, the first episode of I Hope You’re Proud dropped. During the nine-minute video, Alex shows us his journey to becoming the artist he is today while explaining that he attributes his success to his father, who unfortunately passed away when Alex was nine years old. Alex went through many hard moments since then, but he made it through all the way to signing with Atlantic Records. And since the constant driving force in his life was his father, Alex is sharing a docuseries dedicated to him. We already love it and can’t wait to see what comes next. And a little bonus suggestion if you’re into podcasts: Alex also has one named Locked In With Alex Warren.
Spooky season is almost upon us (at least officially, because we’ve been in a spooky mood since the beginning of August.) We’re always hyped for Halloween content, but this year we’re extra hyped for a very special reason: the classic Hocus Pocus is getting a sequel after nearly 30 years. Hocus Pocus 2 debuts on Disney+ on September 30, until then, we can all watch the original to refresh our memory.
In the 1993 movie, the main characters are Max and Dani Dennison and Max’s crush, Allison. The trio accidentally bring back the Sanderson sisters, three witches from the 1600s and must stop them from sucking the youth out of the children of Salem before the end of Halloween night. In the sequel, the sisters are brought back once again (still played by the amazing Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.) This time, the task of stopping their evil deeds falls on the shoulders of a new trio of teenagers. We can’t wait to see how it goes.
Hulu truly does everything to make us happy, doesn’t it? This time, we’re talking about how it brought the beloved show Sailor Moon to its catalog. Starting on September 1, the 90s classic will have its fifth season available along with the other four dubbed in English.
The show has as its central character Usagi Tsukino, a kindhearted teenager whose secret identity is the guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Throughout the seasons, Usagi meets all kinds of characters, both allies (including her team of Planetary Guardians) and enemies she has to fight in order to defeat the forces of evil.
Tell Me Lies
College romance isn’t always the fairytale we’d like to think it is, and Tell Me Lies is proof of that. The new Hulu series follows Lucy Albright and Stephen DeMarco after they meet at college and start dating. Everything seems fine between them, but over the eight years the relationship lasts, we can see that that’s not really the case.
Their romance starts out like any other, but the longer it goes, the more addictive and messy it gets. It is by no means a good idea for these two to stay together, but they can’t help it and always go back to the intoxicating feeling of being together. But over the course of the series, all the characters, along with the audience, will figure out that when you choose one thing, you also choose the consequences of that choice. September 7 can’t come soon enough so we can watch the three-episode premiere of Tell Me Lies on Hulu.
The central character of Wedding Season, Katie, seems to have a pretty good life: she’s happy, she has a nice fiancé and they’re about to get married! It would all be perfect… if only it weren’t for the fact that she begins an affair with Stefan at someone else’s wedding. But that’s not enough to make Katie end her relationship, so two months after the affair starts, she’s ready to marry a man she doesn’t love.
Or so she thinks…. because, on the day they’re supposed to tie the knot, her fiancé and his family are found murdered. When the police start investigating, they think Stefan is responsible. It would make sense, considering he’s the bride’s lover. But he seems to be under the impression that Katie herself did it. With the cops after them both, they go on the run in order to try to prove their innocence. The show drops on Hulu on September 8, and we can’t wait to see if we can figure out who did it before the show tells us.
Unfortunately, this is the end of Binge-Worthy Buzz this week. We hope you’ve enjoyed our suggestions as much as we did, and that you’ll be back next week, of course! Please tell us what you thought! You can tweet us @thehoneypop or chat with us on Instagram and Facebook.
