Naturally with Big Brother over until next summer, you might be in need of some shows to watch to hold you over. With this in mind, we decided to come up with a list of shows we thought we be good to watch in the meantime.
Naturally with Big Brother over until next summer, you may be in need of some different shows to watch that can hold you over until next summer. There are plenty of options available to viewers. We can’t get through all of them in one post, so I decided on 3 that I would recommend. These will be a variety of different shows and not just reality tv.
No 1: Survivor: Island of the Idols
Hosted by Jeff Probst, Survivor pits anywhere between 16 and 20 castaways on an island in Fiji against each other. They have to not only survive each other, but survive the elements. Each week, tribes compete for both rewards (these rewards are what we think of as basic items in our every day lives or items to help improve camp life) and immunity. This season, there is the added twist that the castaways will be mentored by Survivor legends “Boston” Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine.
In Big Brother, we often have a lot of controversy on the topic of race and other sensitive issues. This is especially the case given the way Big Brother handles these issues. However, Survivor handles these far more professionally. I would even argue that Survivor sets the standard on how to handle sensitive issues, such as race in reality tv.
The gameplay this season has been particularly strong thus far. Six out of seven episodes have ended in a blindside. That is the mark of a strong season.
No. 2: The Office
There hasn’t been a new episode of The Office since May 16, 2013. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t re-watch the show or watch it for the first time. The Office is a parody of a documentary that depicts the everyday lives of employees who work at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
To this day, the show is still massively popular as people love to watch and re-watch this show. For as cringeworthy as the show can be at times, it is particularly funny. Some of Jim Halpert’s pranks against his fellow co-worker Dwight Schrute are legendary. It is a timeless classic that people of most ages can enjoy. The show is easily binge-able too because episodes are only about 20 minutes. The Office stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey have even recently started their own podcast to talk about each of the episode.
No. 3: South Park
South Park is a comedy series that follows foul-mouthed children who live in the fictional town of South Park, Colorado. South Park is a great mixture of comedy and topical political humor. They’ve made fun of everything from President Donald Trump to Rudy Giuliani to the Washington Redskins name controversy to the ICE Raids. However, this show is not suitable for people of all ages.
