Wondering what to watch this weekend? This week we suggest new seasons of beloved series, the ugliest houses you've ever seen, and a throwback tween jam session.
Billions: S7 - Showtime/Paramount+
Picked by Lawrence Banton
Bobby Axelrod is back, baby! Damian Lewis has reprised his role as the cutthroat billionaire hedge fund owner after taking personal time off from the show following the death of his wife. When we last saw Bobby, better known as Axe, he was fleeing an arrest by New York's attorney general, played by Paul Giamatti. There's a new guy on the block now running the show – Mike Prince (played by Corey Stoll) – but his aspirations for the Oval Office spark fear in those closest to him. Axe's allies haven't had contact with the 'boss' since he left the country, but with an imminent threat to Americans with Prince in office, all bets are off and they need to track him down to not only save the company but democracy.
Only Murders In The Building: Season 3 - Hulu
Picked by Newsletter Writer Graison Dangor
This goofy, occasionally touching, overall delightful show premiered its third season last week. "Steve Martin and Martin Short in a murder mystery" is enough to get some people interested, but Selena Gomez as the trio's straight woman adds so much to the show, which is about three very different residents of a fancy New York City apartment building who bond over a true crime podcast and then have an occasion to make their own when someone is killed in the building. You can tell they're having a great time making it, which helps keep things light even as the show slowly reveals the pain in each character's past. Another sign they're having fun is the number of A-listers who join to cameo or play bit roles, which includes Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd this season.
Ugliest House in America: Summer Road Trip - Max
Picked by Senior Editor Dina Ross
HGTV fans - get to take a road trip with comedian Retta to find the ugliest, weirdest and funkiest homes in America. It's tournament style - in each episode you get to see three homes in various regions of the U.S. I went on a binge-watching streak this week, getting to enjoy a home filled with fake skeletons, a dome decorated with pennies, and a modern castle covered in styrofoam boulders. Once a winner is picked, HGTV will help the owners redecorate
Camp Rock - Disney+
Picked by Growth Associate Keara O’Driscoll
Last weekend I got to live out my biggest inner tween fantasy of seeing the Jonas Brothers at their one-night-only show (which was actually two nights) at Yankee Stadium. As any true Jo Bros fan I was hoping to hear some songs from one of the most iconic DCOMs (Disney Channel Original Movies) ever, Camp Rock. Although I did not get to rock out live, Disney+ was able to provide the extra nostalgia I was looking for. If you’re reading this Nick, Joe, and Kevin PLEASE ADD 'CAMP ROCK' TO THE SETLIST.
