New seasons, new characters, shows you might’ve missed out in, crazy plot twists… if you thought Labour Day was going to be boring, think again.
The Handmaid’s Tale
After a successful first season, The Handmaid’s Tale is returning! We’ve all read the book – we all know what happens up to this point, . The second season ventures beyond Gilead and Canada, veering off the source material. But if you think it’s going to branch away from this totalitarian nightmare, think again.
Probably the wittiest (and most relevant) TV show right now, Silicon Valley recently returned for its fourth season. The show revolves around a startup trying to get its break in Silicon Valley. Anyone who has had the honour of working in a startup would relate with the show. From watching your backend crash to Sophia the robot, this comedy covers all bases.
Labour Day is going to be pretty chill and uneventful – that’s why you need the drama. Dynasty is all about that and more. Rich people, big houses, big hair, power plays, hot guys, crazy mothers: this show has everything.
Love Westerns AND Sci-Fi? You get two for the price of one on Westworld. After a thought-provoking first season, Westworld returns in the middle of a crisis. If you need a refresher, Westworld is a theme park that allows visitors to experience life in the Wild West and interact with humanoid robots. Before we say too much, let’s just agree that we shouldn’t muck around with AI too much.
Wild Wild Country
None of that fictitious drama for you! You like your telly fix to keep it real, and we’re not talking reality TV either. Wild Wild Country is a documentary on the fantastical story of controversial Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (aka Osho), his personal assistant Ma Anand Sheela, and their community of followers in Rajneeshpuram community located in a remote part of Oregon. Yup, a cult basically.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
There’s really nothing happy about this series, so if you’re expecting a happy ending, you’ll probably have to wait a long, long time. Follow the tragic tale of three orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire as they move around guardians while investigating their parents’ mysterious and tragic death AND try to avoid the schemes of the evil Count Olaf as he plots to steal his inheritance.
If you’ve read food magazine Lucky Peach, this series is the television version – David Chang, the brains behind Momofuku and co-founder of the magazine is behind the show. Learn about the geographical origins of various cuisines, peep what it’s like behind the scenes at restaurants, pick up new eating spots and more on this food documentary that is about enjoying good food as it is – ugly and delicious.
It’s also Mother’s Day coming up and we know this one’s an oldie (and a goldie) but schedule in some quality time with mother and curl up on the couch catching up on Rory and Lorelai’s adventures while waxing nostalgic about your own.
