What To Binge-Watch While You #StayHome | People Now Host Jeremy Parsons Aired April 17, 2020

As if we weren't already binge-watching pretty much all the streamable content before the coronavirus outbreak, now that we're staying home, many of us are looking for a new TV series (or two) to get into or a great movie to add to the watchlist (or rewatch list!).

Rach called on her friend, "People Now" host Jeremy Parsons, to share his list of what to binge-watch this weekend.

Here's what he says to check out:

Best New Series To Binge-Watch: "Tiger King"

Where To Watch "Tiger King": Season one is streaming on Netflix

What Is "Tiger King" About?
"It is about the underbelly of the big cat business, surrounding a man named Joe Exotic, who has an operation going … and then an animal rights activist named Carole Baskin enters the picture to try to shut him down," Jeremy says.

"You're not going to believe the twists and turns in this series and if you're the last person on Earth to watch it, you still have time to catch up."

Best Series To Binge-Watch With Several Seasons: "Alone"

Where To Watch "Alone": Seasons one through six are available to stream through the History channel and on Hulu

What Is "Alone" About?
"It's a survivalist series where contestants are dropped into the wilderness at different places and they document their survival with only a few choice items they're allowed to bring with them. Whoever lasts the longest wins a big cash prize," Jeremy says.

"And the stories of humanity and overcoming obstacles that come out of this are fantastic."

Best Series To Binge-Watch For Adults: "Ozark"

Where To Watch "Ozark": Seasons one through three are streaming on Netflix

What Is "Ozark" About?
"It stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner is a breakout star from this series. It's about a family that's kind of a normal, upper-middle class suburban family — seemingly normal until they get roped into all kinds of bad stuff with a very dangerous cartel," Jeremy says.

"Caution: not for the kids! This one's adults only."

For the record, John and Rachael binge-watch "Ozark" — season three recently dropped and they've already finished.

Best Classic Streaming Movie To Watch as a Family: "Hook"

Best New Streaming Movie To Watch as a Family: "Stargirl"
