If you’re like the staff of Streaking the Lawn, sports are at least 95% of your life. You wake up and check the scores and twitter, you look at ESPN and other sports sites while at work, and then you come home and if UVa is playing, you spend 2-3 hours in front of the tv watching. Let’s be honest, even if UVa isn’t playing, you’re likely watching an ESPN or a Fox Sports channel.
These next few months are going to be ROUGH.
We have honestly no idea how we’re going to get through it together.
Luckily, the million streaming services out there right now are in a golden age, so we figured we’d list some things we’re watching these days to pass the time!
1. Watchmen - HBO
Built off the graphic novel that many of us saw the movie based on, this series is set in an alternate reality where masked vigilantes in Tulsa, Oklahoma take to the streets to serve justice. It was in its first season last year and only 9 episodes. That could maybe take you a weekend to get through?
2. Ugly Delicious - Netflix
Season 2 of this wonderful food series premiered just last week, and just in time. Set around David Chang, noted chef and owner of the Momofuku restaurant empire, as he travels the globe eating cool foods. Also, he is a Georgetown Prep alum, so maybe he has some UVa love somewhere deep down inside!
3. Schitt’s Creek - Netflix & Hulu
Six season series that just ended this year so you can binge literally all of it right now! A rich and well to-do family is forced to relocate to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they actually purchased. Many have sung the praises of this hilarious series and episodes are only 20ish minutes so if you need a quick break, throw it on! Only five seasons are on Netflix currently, so you might have to “borrow” a Hulu password to watch the final season.
4. Devs - Hulu
A brand new series put out by FX on Hulu, the main character’s boyfriend dies from an apparent suicide, but she doesn’t believe it, so she investigates! Nick Offerman plays a crazy, which should be drastically different than his old Parks and Rec roles, and should be enough to watch in itself.
5. Love is Blind - Netflix
For us Bachelor and Bachelorette lovers out there, Netflix has come up with a love reality series of their own. Hosted by Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, this eleven episode series that premiered back in February couples up singles to try and find a match and fall in love without ever letting them see each other face to face. Will it work out? Probably not! Will you think they’re all idiots? Probably so!
If none of those fancy you, you can always fall back on watching some good old series like The Office, Parks and Rec, Mad Men, or The Wire. What do you plan on watching while we have no sports in our lives?
