Binge-Worthy Buzz: What Are We Watching Next?

binge worthy buzz

Hello there, honeybees, and welcome to another edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz, our weekly series where we bring you new recommendations of what to watch next. Be it at the movie theater or on streaming services, you can bet you’ll find something that piques your interest.


Back in 2021, Apple TV+ graced us with the first season of Schmigadoon, a series parodying 1940s musicals. The main characters are Melissa and Josh, a backpacking couple who get stuck in the town of Schmigadoon, where all the townspeople sing and dance through their days. They soon find out that the only way to leave the town is by finding true love… which they thought they already had? So yeah, that’s their issue on Season one.

Now, after over a year of waiting, Schmigadoon is back for a new season, bringing Melissa and Josh to the town of Schmicago, where they find a new world of musicals, but reminiscent of the 60s and 70s instead of the 40s. The first two episodes drop on Apple TV+ on April 5 and new episodes come every Wednesday through May 3.

Joy Ride

This is the story of four women who go on an adventure through Asia on a hilarious journey of self-discovery away from home. But there is a reason for them to choose Asia of all continents: they’re searching for the birth mother of Audrey, the main character. Well, kinda… Audrey is actually on a business trip in Asia and during that time the issue of her birth mom arises and she decides she wants to see what’s up with that.

But traveling to another continent alone wouldn’t be nearly as interesting, so she enlists the company of her childhood best friend (and full-time hot mess) Lolo, her college friend Kat, who is currently a Chinese soap star, and Lolo’s eccentric cousin Deadeye. These four women are the spin that “buddy comedies” needed and it is great to know we can see them be amazing together in theaters starting July 7.

Gotham: The Fall and Rise of New York

Over the past decades, New York went from a violent city people wanted distance from to one of the USA’s most popular cities, loved by locals and tourists. But how did it happen? That’s the question Gotham: The Fall and Rise of New York wants to answer.

With 26 interviews, archival footage, and re-enactments, the movie explores the legacy of the six mayors of New York City from 1996 until 2013, putting viewers right in the middle of the action during a time when New York could truly be considered a real-life version of Gotham City. The movie is out everywhere on VOD right now.

John Wick: Chapter 4

John Wick has been one of our favorite Keanu Reeves characters since he first appeared back in 2014 (has it really been almost 10 years?) Back then, John was a retired hitman forced to go back into that line of work, and every time he thinks it’s over, he gets pulled back in, and the fourth installment of this series would be no different.

This time, the price on John Wick’s head is higher than ever as he goes from one city to another all over the world searching for the most powerful people of the underworld. So if you’re interested in seeing our favorite action movie lead to go from New York to Paris and Berlin, head over to the closest movie theater and thank us later.

Up Here

Speaking a little more about New York City, how about a romantic comedy set there? Up Here brings us back to 1999 NYC, where we meet an ordinary couple, Lindsay and Miguel, and follow their journey through falling in love, and maybe finding out that their biggest obstacle might just be themselves.

In this adorable Hulu musical series, memories, fantasies, and fears that live inside Lindsay and Miguel’s heads take human form and constantly feel the need to make themselves heard by the couple, but their opinions aren’t always the nicest. But these two don’t seem like they’re going to let the voices get in their way. Up Here is currently streaming on Hulu.

Great Expectations

In 1861, Charles Dickens published his novel Great Expectations. In 2023, BBC One is releasing a new limited series based on the novel. Even over 150 years after people met Pip, the main character, for the first time, the impact of his story is still amazing, which is why we can’t wait to watch the whole series on Hulu.

And in case you’re not familiar, let us give you a quick rundown of the story: Pip is an orphan who wants more out of life in 19th-century England. However, a twist of fate throws him into a dark world of possibilities, with some “help” from the eccentric Miss Havisham. The expectations of Pip only increase over time and the focus of the six-episode series is to show us how he works out how to exist in this scary new world. The first episode is currently available on Hulu and new episodes come out every week for the next five weeks.

And now we’re at the end of this week’s Binge-Worthy Buzz. We hope you’ve enjoyed our list as much as we enjoyed making it, and if you did, tell us! You can find us on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.
