It has been so cold this week and with it getting as dark as early as it has been, I really want to just curl up into a ball and watch something good on t.v. (only when I'm taking a break from the books). Thanks to Think Jam and HBO, I was able to get my hands on "The Night Of" and Season 6 of "Game of Thrones."
Synopsis of "The Night Of:"
In The Night Of,
Pakistani-American college student Nasir “Naz” Khan, who lives with his
parents in Queens, NY, takes his father’s taxi to go to a party in
Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a
nightmare when he’s arrested for murder. The series examines the police
investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and
Rikers Island, where the accused await trial.
Synopsis of Season 6 of Game of Thrones:
The most-watched series in HBO history and a worldwide TV phenomenon, Game of Thrones returns
with another power season. This year, after the shocking developments
at the end of Season 5 – including Jon Snow's bloody fate at the hands
of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys' near-demise at the fighting pits of
Meereen, and Cersei's public humiliation in the streets of King's
Landing – survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to
press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates.
Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic
chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the
balance of power in the east, west, north and south.
I've been binging on both. Both of these shows are great to binge watch. My husband and I have enjoyed making these shows our date nights over the past several evenings (hey, you find time where you can with toddler twins!). The shows are quite different from each other but both are incredibly well done.
I also want to mention that My family and I decided to "cut the cord" this past year. It hasn't been too bad but I still appreciate anything that makes it a little easier! HBO now sells HBO NOW gift certificates!
