Bridgerton

If romance is in the air, be sure to check out season one of the steamy series Bridgerton. The series is based on a series of romance novels written by Julia Quinn, so you know it is all romance and sex. The period drama is set in the Regency Era and is as extravagant as the books have described.

The storyline follows the Bridgerton family and other families of the ton as they enjoy the season where debutantes are presented to find suitable matches. Bridgerton isn’t your mother’s period drama. Bridgerton pushes the conservative boundaries found in another similar series or movies and ends the racial stereotypes often found in this type of story. It is a refreshing reboot of the Regency Era.

The second season of Bridgerton will premiere on Netflix on March 25.

New Girl

If you need a comedy to binge this weekend, check out New Girl. The series centers on  Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel), Nick Miller (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston Bishop (Lamorne Morris), their former roommate Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.), and Jess’ best friend Cece Parekh (Hannah Simone).

Jess moves into an LA loft with the guys, and life will never be the same. A combination of comedy and drama, the series follows all the characters’ romances, careers, and family lives. Many guest appearances by familiar faces add a certain charm to the mix.

Midnight Mass

If you are a fan of Mike Flanagan and have yet to see Midnight Mass, you are missing out. This is an amazing series where the viewer knows something isn’t right but can’t put their finger on the issue until the last minute before it is revealed. Flanagan is a master at making his viewers perch on the edge of their seats in anticipation, waiting for the next reveal.

Midnight Mass is set on the isolated Crockett Island that has always been an island that relies on the church leader to guide them. When a new priest arrives, he revitalizes the town’s religious fervor while at the same time mysterious events begin to occur.
