With Thanksgiving coming up this week, you might find yourself with some extra time to knock some binge-watching out of the way. You might even have to cancel time with family in order to do so, but never your time with gravy. This week takes us to the world of comic books, Los Angeles and an imaginative neighborhood. Enjoy some turkey with these new-to-streaming choices.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier came out in theaters and the Marvel Universe was impacted on both the big and small screen. Relive this entire first season, as Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson introduces new recruit Skye (Chloe Bennet) to the world of chuckle-worthy heroism, which is filled out by May (Ming-Na Wen), Grant (Brett Dalton), Leo (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge). Especially memorable are the guest spots from Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter, Neal McDonough’s Dum Dum Dugan and Patton Oswalt as Eric and Billy Koenig.
The entire first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can be found on Netflix Instant.
Hello Ladies: The Movie. In it, lead love-seeker Stuart (Merchant) creates a ridiculous scenario that has him pretending to date his tenant Jessica (Christine Woods) in order to impress his U.K. ex, who is in L.A. with her significant other. The series, which Merchant created with Office vets Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, was as hilarious as it was clunky and silly, and this swan song is exactly what fans should be waiting for. Watch out for a pretty impressive cameo from one Nicole Kidman.
Hello Ladies: The Movie debuted on HBO on Saturday, November 22, and is available on HBO Go.
All six episodes of Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street can be found on Amazon Prime.
