Hello there, honeybees, how are you doing? Welcome to another edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz. This is our weekly series where we give you a list of recommendations of what to watch next because we’re just that nice. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover today, so let’s dive in!
Limitless with Chris Hemsworth
We all know Chris Hemsworth. We all love Chris Hemsworth. He’s our favorite Avenger (even if he’s not the strongest Avenger, according to Tony Stark, anyway.) And now he’s momentarily stepping away from the MCU to show us he really doesn’t know what a “limit” is in a new Disney+ Original Production: Limitless, a documentary-style series with six episodes.
He’s still the main character, not as a god, but as someone much harder to portray on screen: himself. This is his show and his journey through aging and discovering his full potential.
Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me
Yes, lovely bees, Selena Gomez is doing a documentary with Apple TV+. Our queen Selena is opening the door and giving us a peek into one of the darkest times of her life, and we are honored to have that opportunity.
Selena spent a while out of the public eye after her Disney Channel days, and then she was back with a bang, only to be pulled right into darkness. My Mind & Me gives viewers the chance to see what that six-year journey looked like for Selena. The documentary premieres on Apple TV+ on November 4, and you can bet we’ll be there to watch it.
Also in November, we’re getting a new Latin American docuseries to obsess over. We’re talking about The MONTANERs. Over the course of ten episodes, we’ll meet a diverse cast of lovely real-life characters in the form of the Montaners family. Its members have become kind of a phenomenon on-line, and this ten-episode series will follow them as they juggle personal lives and professional careers. The first five episodes will be available on Disney+ on November 9, with the next five coming soon after.
The idea of the documentary is to show the family’s most intimate moments, and they do so using not only the crew’s cameras, but also videos filmed on phones, the family’s private video collection, and much more. And just like a typical family reunion where people start telling stories, the series doesn’t have a linear narrative. It feels like they’re retelling the family’s most important moments as they come to mind, which is really cool.
Coughing Out Embers
You all know how much we love music documentaries, right? Right! So it should come as no surprise that we are absolutely in love with The Wonder Years’ latest project: Coughing Out Embers. The documentary follows the band through the process of creating their latest album, The Hum Goes On Forever. It’s only fair that their most challenging album (their words, not ours) should come with a movie to tell its story.
And the best part is: the whole thing is on YouTube! It’s never been so easy to catch up on what your faves have been up to. It’s shocking that this is the first time The Wonder Years have produced a full on documentary, since this is a band with lots of stories to tell, but we’re glad their first documentary was such a good one. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be in our rooms rewatching the entire film again.
And this marks the end of our Binge-Worthy Buzz! We hope you’ve enjoyed our picks this week, and if you did, please tell us about it! You can find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. We’ll love to have a chat with you.
