Hello, honeybees. How are you doing this fine day? We hope you’re doing well and that you’re ready for this week’s Binge-Worthy Buzz. As usual, we have a lot to cover, so let’s get to it!
The Chorus: Success, Here I Go
Starting off our list, we have the Brazilian production The Chorus: Success, Here I Go. The show’s first season is set to drop on Disney+ on February 1. The Chorus brings us a group of ten young artists who just got the opportunity of a lifetime: they made it to the final round of auditions for a big musical theater company. But there’s no guarantee they’ll be hired for good yet, and you can imagine how that’s affecting them. That, along with the fears, hopes, and dreams that always come with new challenges, is bound to create quite the story. And if you want to know the genius behind this story, it’s a good thing he’s also part of the cast. Miguel Falabella created the show, directed it, and is also in the cast as Renato Milva, the owner of the theater company.
Super Junior: Last Man Standing
In case it wasn’t super obvious, we love K-Pop in this house, so naturally, we have to talk about Hulu’s new docuseries about Super Junior. These guys were one of the first K-Pop groups to be huge all over the world, and Last Man Standing is here to show us why and how that happened. Throughout the episodes, we’ll be watching new interviews with the band as they look back and tell stories about their very long (and very amazing) career in the music industry.
Listen up, this is a “classic everyone should watch” alert to all of you. 25 years ago, one of the biggest masterpieces of TV history was airing for the first time. Now, a new generation will get to watch Dawson’s Creek and appreciate its 90s brilliance, thanks to Hulu. All six seasons are currently available for streaming, and it is honestly the kind of show everyone should watch at some point in their lives. The show follows Dawson and Joey, two best friends who grew up in a small town in New England and are now facing the trials of growing up. And even if we have little to no idea how many things surround the characters’ work (it was the 90s, after all,) the growing pains they go through are very much something we all go through or have gone through.
So I Married The Anti-Fan
Everyone’s heard of the “what if a celebrity married a fan” kind of story. It’s happened in fiction and, sometimes, in real life too, but what if a celebrity married an anti-fan? That’s the premise of So I Married The Anti-Fan, Hulu’s latest K-Drama. Let’s see if we can explain this without giving too much away, shall we? Basically, we have Lee Geun Young, a magazine reporter who loses her job after a disastrous opening ceremony of a nightclub. The reason she loses her job? Superstar Hoo Joon. Or at least that’s what she’s assuming. Furious at the supposed mastermind behind her job loss, Geun Young stages a one-person protest against him, which earns her the title of “Hoo Joon’s ultimate anti-fan.” But how does it go from this to marriage? That’s up to you to learn by watching the first season on Hulu.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
You know we had to sneak some Marvel content in here. But this time, we are not talking about the MCU itself. We are talking about a Marvel Animation series called Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The story begins when 13-year-old Lunella brings a T-Rex into present-day New York. Yes, it was an accident, but they’re working with it. And by “working with it,” we mean the unlikely duo joins forces to protect the Lower East Side from danger. The show will premiere on Disney Channel on February 10, and 5 days later, the first six episodes drop on Disney+ as well.
