Broad City

First up is a quirky comedy that follows two best friends; Ilana and Abbi, through everyday life in New York City. As young and fun loving early twenty-somethings, they are tested by the very real struggles of getting through the day without a truly horrific catastrophe. Combined with their outrageous personalities and hysterical stunts, Ilana and Abbi are the very best and worst versions of ourselves. Head on over to Hulu or Amazon Prime to binge-watch just 20 episodes so far.

Definitely better than Girls

Damages

An American legal thriller; Damages is the deeper, darker and more complex older sister of Suits. It ran for 5 intense seasons between 2007 – 2012. The show toys with timelines and jumps back and forth in time to create extra suspense. The enormous plot-twists will have you on the edge of your seat.

The show focuses, in particular, on the relationship between Patty Hewes and young protegee Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne, well-known for her role on Bridesmaids…); as the show goes on, you see that Ellen’s perception of right and wrong become a little more blurred as the story unfolds (no spoilers).

Sit back, buckle up and let Damages take you on a journey that will have you gripped every step along the way. The whole 59 episodes are on Netflix now!

Silicon Valley

facebook-meme2

As the name would suggest; this comedy, based in Silicon Valley, follows the journey of a programmer who hits the goldmine with his new app – Pied Piper. Like a lot of start-ups, they face the struggle of beating tough competition and constant efforts by ‘Hooli’ (satirized combination of Google, Facebook and hints of Apple) to buy them out, sink them with reverse engineering and eventually, a heavy law-suit.

The socially-awkward team of developers, complete with their herd leader; bong-toting entrepreneur Erlich Bachman, deal with challenge after challenge with hilarious results.

Have you already cycled through the list of shows where terrible people do terrible things for fun; from The League to It’s Always Sunny In Philedelphia? We’ve got another suggestion for you, Workaholics!

With a fairly similar premises to It’s Always Sunny; a bunch of friends who spend too much time together get up to no good whilst being hilariously stupid, their antics will have you disgusted but also belly-laugh like crazy. Very good for binge-watching hangover days.

Transparent

Transparent-TV-show

This Amazon Original Series follows the journey of Mort, who is slowly transitioning to become Maura (played impeccably by Jeffrey Tambor) and the journeys of self-discovery for him and his family. With brilliant light comic touches, the show also delves into exploration of identity, family and sexuality.

It’s even designed to be watched all in one ‘five-hour movie’ as opposed to 10 half-hour episodes, so you shouldn’t even feel guilty about binge-watching! Catch the show on Amazon Prime now.

Start a gift page so you can split the monthly cost and watch without any interruptions. It would make a great birthday present for that TV geek in your life. Shareagift with you friends and enjoy watching great shows together!

Our Top 10 Incredibly Useful Websites!

It emerged this week that a website for refugees which was set up by a couple in Berlin is growing in popularity. The site matches people who have a spare room in cities across Germany with refugees who are searching for accommodation. The couple came up with the idea when they decided they wanted to use their own spare room to home a refugee. They managed to raise six months rent by requesting help from friends and family.

We love the idea behind this useful website and this just goes to show how we are constantly finding new ideas and different ways to use the Internet. With this in mind we set about looking for some of the most exciting and useful websites that the web has to offer and have listed our top 10.

1 – Camelcamelcamel

This handy website lets you track the prices of any Amazon product so that you can be sure you’re getting the best deal.

3 – A Good Movie To Watch

This will save you all those hours of endlessly scrolling through Netflix trying to find something good to watch. You can chose what sort of film the site picks for you based on genre, mood or by using a random search. The site also focuses on more indie and less well known films, which usually means that you haven’t seen them.
