Big Weekend Plans: Stay Home, But Keep Busy Edition

We’re just about two weeks into the new year and beginning to get into the groove of things. With COVID numbers skyrocketing in many areas, staying home and staying safe is a top priority. Lucky for you, there are a lot of things to watch, listen to, and do at home this weekend. Read our top picks and get our latest playlist below.

Streaming TV & Movies

Somebody Somewhere

HBO’s new series Somebody, Somewhere stars comedian Bridget Everett as Sam, a Kansan dealing with the loss of her sister and working to discover herself in a community that doesn’t always accept those who are different. That description doesn’t do the show justice – watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean. Watch Somebody Somewhere Sunday, Jan. 16th on HBO Max.

Dexter: New Blood

If you weren’t a fan of the original series’ finale, this continuation of the serial killer’s story might just make up for it. Stream the entire season on Showtime.

Yellowjackets

It’s a week of finales, with Yellowjackets also wrapping up its first season on Showtime.

The Expanse

Season 6/Series finale – Amazon Prime Video

RuPaul’s Drag Race

Part 2 of the season 14 premiere is on VH1 Friday at 8/7c

The Righteous Gemstones

Season 2 of this show premiered this past Sunday, so you can jump right into the story of the Gemstones, a dysfunctional family of televangelists, Starring Danny McBride, Adam DeVine, Edi Patterson, and John Goodman, watch the show on HBO Max.

Naomi

This Ava DuVernay-produced series is a superhero origin story inspired by the DC Comics series. Based in a fictional city in Oregon, Naomi is a comic book loving teenager who discovers she has a secret destiny. If you’re a fan of the CW’s surprisingly solid Superman and Lois series, this one is worth a look. Watch Naomi on the CW.

Peacemaker

John Cena is back as Peacemaker, who you might remember from last year’s The Suicide Squad. The series was written by James Gunn, and if the trailer is any indication, this is a show you won’t want to miss. Watch Peacemaker on HBO Max

Eternals

If you missed it in theaters, Marvel’s Eternals is now availble on Disney+. Starring Gemma Chan, Kit Harrington, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and many, many other people, Eternals is about a group of superhuman immortal beings who have lived on Earth for thousands of years coming back together to (you guessed it) save the world. Watch Eternals on Disney+.
