  • - Hold on to your remotes and cancel all your plans.

  • We are bringing you all the best stuff to watch

  • so far in 2019.

  • Hey there, World Wide Watchers, I'm Alex Robinson, and

  • this is another episode of "Bingeworthy."

  • A show where I talk about what you can

  • and should be streaming right now.

  • Today we're gonna be talking about

  • the absolute best things to watch so far in 2019,

  • with absolutely no references to "Young Sheldon."

  • You're welcome.

  • - This isn't over.

  • - "Sex Education."

  • Otis, the son of a sex therapist,

  • played by Gillian Anderson with a spot on British accent,

  • teams up with a misunderstood and

  • wildly intelligent classmate named Maeve,

  • to help fellow high school students

  • with their romantic problems.

  • You know, all too typical things, like

  • performance anxiety, masturbation, and

  • practicing oral sex on at a high school party.

  • The show delves into more serious topics as well,

  • but the undeniable John Hughes vibe,

  • think "Pretty in Pink," keeps it fun and flirty.

  • While so many shows try to tackle topics

  • of teenage angst with mediocrity,

  • "Sex Education" goes above and beyond

  • and is the one to watch right now.

  • - Let me get you some condoms.

  • - No thanks, Mom.

  • - "True Detective" Season 3.

  • First off, no spoilers.

  • I'm simply here to tell you that Season 3

  • is truly a return to form for the show and Nic Pizzolatto.

  • Now there are the quintessential flawed men as cops,

  • who can't seem break away from a disturbing case,

  • myriad theories about a pedophile ring

  • come back into the picture,

  • and following the show is like trying to solve

  • a puzzle when you're missing half the pieces.

  • At times, the plot can meander in weird directions,

  • especially when trying to figure out

  • just where the secondary characters fit

  • into this haunting universe,

  • but fans of Season 1 should find some masochistic fun

  • in trying to theorize who 'dun it.

  • "The other two."

  • A hilarious new show on Comedy Central,

  • "the other two" comes to us from the minds of

  • former SNL writers Chris Kelly and Sara Schneider.

  • The plot centers around 30-somethings

  • Cary, an aspiring actor/waiter,

  • and Brooke, a broke real estate agent,

  • as they what their younger, 13-year-old brother,

  • Chase, rise to fame as a YouTube superstar

  • who sings ridiculously bad pop songs

  • that the internet eats up.

  • Remind you of anyone?

  • Looking at you, Biebs.

  • There are eight episodes in Season 1

  • and the show was recently picked up

  • for a second season on Comedy Central.

  • You can check it out right now.

  • - OK, remind me, I need to find a guy

  • to go home with tonight 'cause I don't have a house.

  • - "Black Monday."

  • Now streaming on Showtime, "Black Monday"

  • is about a Wall Street wolf who hires a

  • naive analyst as part of scheme

  • to leverage insider knowledge in the year

  • leading up to the 1987 stock market crash.

  • "What's so great about it?"

  • I'm glad you asked.

  • Executive produced by Seth Rogan, among some others,

  • the half-hour comedy both revels in it's glitzy

  • very not politically correct Reagan-era setting

  • as well as makes fun of how terrible

  • everything and everyone was.

  • While also delivering a neatly executed financial caper.

  • The show stars Don Cheadle, Regina Hall,

  • Andrew Rannalls and Paul Sheer; and if you're a fan

  • say, "Anchorman" and/or "Trading Places,"

  • this is the one for you.

  • "Russian Doll."

  • Now streaming on Netflix.

  • "Russian Doll" is eight totally bingable episodes

  • filled with cynicism, dark humor and

  • Natasha Lyonne dying and coming back to life

  • over and over again.

  • Basically, Lyonne is forced to relive her

  • 36th birthday, a la "Groundhogs Day,"

  • in an effort to figure out just why

  • the hell she can't seem to stay alive.

  • The show kinda plays out like a humorous episode

  • of "Black Mirror," but turns into a

  • profound and affecting meditation on trauma.

  • Plus, come on, it's Natasha Lyonne,

  • and she's the (beep) best.

  • That is it for today.

  • Happy streaming.

  • I'm Alex Robinson and that was "Bingeworthy."
