Chances are you're going to have some extra time coming up. One way to use up that time is catch up on some TV or get into something new. Here are some recommendations:

  • The Queen's Gambit
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • Don't let Buzz talk you out of watching this. It's a damn good show. It is a bit slow in the first episode and I had a tough time getting through it. But once you get passed that, it is amazing.
  • Trial 4
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • If you are wondering just how messed up our criminal justice system is, just watch this docuseries.
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars
  • Streaming on Disney+
  • Are you going through Mando-withdrawals? This is the show to keep your Star Wars cravings satiated. There are also heavy ties to The Mandalorian with Ahsoka Tano and the Siege of Mandalore.
  • The Devil Next Door
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • This was a big case back in the 80s. A Cleveland man end sup on trial over in Israel because it is believed he was the worst-of-the-worst Nazi, Ivan the Terrible.
  • American Murder: The Family Next Door
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • Holy crap. This documentary made me so uncomfortable. Seriously. It's a rough watch, but it's a good watch.
  • Brooklyn 99
  • Streaming on Hulu
  • If you have never seen Brooklyn 99, you are really missing out. It's a great show, with great writing and a great cast.

Here are a few things that I haven't seen yet, but I'm planning on watching at some point while I'm off on vacation next week.

  • Soul
  • Streaming on Disney+ starting Christmas Day
  • Joe is a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn't quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz -- and he's good. But when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.

  • Schulz Saves America
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • Andrew Schulz is a good follow on social media and is a great comedian. This comedy special consists of 4, 15-minute episodes and it's already getting people upset.
  • Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator
  • Streaming on Netflix
  • I just started this documentary and I'm already hooked. It's about an hour and a half long and goes into the rise and fall of hot yoga founder Bikram Choudhury.
