Binge Until You Can't No More: 7 Things We're Netflix & Chillin' to This Weekend in NYC

Warm weather is, in fact, dope. Rainy weekends not so much, but warm weather, yes. 

The warm temperatures we experienced this week and are expected to keep seeing into this weekend are enough to get us to log off Netflix for the first time since October.

But, we all know that there will undoubtedly be lazy moments this weekend, in which we simply can't pull ourselves away from the comfort of our beds. 

And why should we? We work hard. We deserve it. Don't judge us. 

Luckily, we have plenty of amazing stuff to watch this weekend during those lazy moments. 

Here's what's on tap.

1. Veep

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is queen. Let's just be real.

And Season 5 of her HBO show, Veep, looks just as hysterical as ever. And timely, too, given that we're in the throes of the presidential campaign and it's making everyone an insane person. 


It also looks as though we can look forward to some amazing guest stars this season - Hugh Laurie and John Slattery are just two hilarious guest appearances in the trailer. 

The premiere is set to air this Sunday at 10:30 p.m. on HBO, but you can  

2. Game of Thrones

Sunday is coming. They recently released a 30-second clip from the next season, but uh, it's just Theon/Reek and Sansa running around in the snow. It's worth checking out if you like watching people run through the snow.

The clip above is a recently discovered bad lip reading. It's pretty great. 

What we might be even more excited about is the recap show that's likely to air on HBO Go and HBO Now on Mondays, After the Thrones. 

Former Grantland scholars, and current Ringer nerds Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan are hosting this show that's likely to be more watchable than most of what Chris Hardwick's done. Yeah, we're looking forward to it. 

3. The Night Manager

This AMC mini series has everything we look for in entertainment: Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, and that's it. End of list. 


We'll be catching up on episode 1 this weekend, which aired this past Tuesday. The trailer is jam-packed with action, drama, and countless beautiful people that we look forward to ogling throughout the entirety of the episode. 

4. The Jungle Book 

Since it is going to be warm out this weekend, maybe we should get out of bed and do something with our day by heading out to a movie. So what if we're just moving from one indoor place to another? Baby steps. 

And ok, maybe this movie is geared towards younger audiences, but with the all-star cast and opportunity for serious childhood nostalgia, we're actually super excited about it. Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, and Lupita N'yongo are just a few performances in this sure-to-be-epic film. 


5. Broad City

Of all the shows on TV right now that represent New York City, Broad City is probably the most realistic. And the most hysterical. 

We feel all of their city-related struggles on a very real level. They also remind us that it's okay to be a hot damn mess sometimes, which is something we definitely need to remember every now and again.


Season 3 recently came to a close, so we'll be marathoning it over and over again until we're sick of it, so never.

6. Lemonade

The trailer for Beyonce's latest project (to air on HBO April 23rd at 9pm ET) is, needless, to say, pretty damn confusing. 

We honestly have no idea what is going on here. Is it a concert? A short film? An album release (PLEASE GOD)??? 

Regardless, we will be watching with bells on. Because Bey can do no wrong. 

7. Purple Rain

Of course, we can't forget about honoring Prince this weekend, after his tragic and shocking passing on Thursday. 

Re-watching the 1984 cult classic Purple Rain is the perfect way to celebrate the icon. The film went on to win an Academy Award, produced many of the singer's best-loved songs, taught us and is an all around testament to Prince's talent and influence.


It's surprisingly heading to some theaters... in New Jersey, but if you find it in NYC, don't think about it. Go watch it.
