Some of 2017’s best new series are finally returning for round two this month, and we can’t wait to see what’s next. Catch up on those — plus a handful of favorite long-running offerings — below with our monthly roundup of what to binge.


The Good Fight 95% (CBS All Access)

What it is: Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) gets the leading lady treatment with CBS All Access’ hit spin-off of The Good Wife. Set one year after the events of that acclaimed series’ finale (and picking up on the morning of President Donald Trump’s storied inauguration), The Good Fight follows Lockhart after she’s forced out of her own firm with Maia Rindell (Game of ThronesRose Leslie) and joins up with Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo).

Why you should watch it: Sure, if you loved The Good Wife, you’ll love The Good Fight — but believe it or not, Baranski is better than ever here and finds exciting new shades to our beloved Lockhart. Season 2 premieres March 4.

Commitment: Approx. 8.5 hours


Marvel - Jessica Jones 83% (Netflix)

Krysten Ritter in Marvel's Jessica Jones season 2 (David Giesbrecht/Netflix)

What it is: If you’re up to no good, Jessica Jones is the last person you’d want to bump into in a dark alleyway. The super-strong P.I. has thrown in her towel as a superhero and instead taken to bringing justice to New York City’s most nefarious by more traditional means — until a super-villain from her past named Kilgrave comes back into her life, that is.

Why you should watch it: Even if you’ve already seen Season 1 of Jessica Jones, and even if you got a much-needed fix from Marvel’s The Defenders last year, Krysten Ritter alone is worthy of repeat viewing for a quick catch-up before season 2 on March 8. Daring, crass, and ball-busting, she and her Jones take on a whole new significance in the era of Times Up and #MeToo. But most importantly, she’s addictively watchable, now more than ever.

Love 94% (Netflix)

What it is: This half-hour comedy from Judd Apatow and Lesley Arfin charts the unlikely relationship of goofy everyman Gus (Paul Rust) and the beautiful-but-flawed Mickey (Gillian Jacobs), both of whom live and work in Hollywood.

Why you should watch it: They say don’t judge a book by its cover, and particularly with Love, it’s best to not judge a series by its title, either. More a darkly comic look at 20-30something aimlessness, addiction, and the things we do to make a connection in the modern world, Love likely won’t leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy. What is worth loving, though, are stop-you-in-your-tracks performances from Community vet Jacobs and Rust. Season 3 premieres March 9.

Commitment: Approx. 11 hours


Sneaky Pete 96% (Amazon)

What it is: Longtime character actor and standout supporter Giovanni Ribisi gets top-billing as “titular” conman Marius who, once out of prison, takes on the identity of his cellmate, Pete. On the run from a coldblooded mobster, Marius holes up with Pete’s unsuspecting small-town family.

Why you should watch it: This Amazon original series from creators David Shore and Bryan Cranston (who also co-stars as mobster Vince) will sneak up and floor you — and we don’t say that simply as a play on words. Each ensemble member (but especially Ribisi and series breakout Marin Ireland) delivers lived-in and moving dramatic turns with fast-paced scripts that don’t skimp on nuance of character. Sneaky Pete doesn’t have to con its way onto your must-watch list; it deserves to be there. Season 2 premieres March 9.

Commitment: Approx. 7.5 hours


Timeless 91% (NBC)

What it is: This time-hopping, sci-fi adventure series from creators Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke stars Abigail Spencer, Malcolm Barrett, and Matt Lanter as a history professor, a scientist, and a soldier, respectively, who travel through time to stop another more sinister time traveler from altering the course of history.

Why you should watch it: Oftentimes, high-concept big swings from the networks take a little while to find their footing, but Timeless on NBC stormed out of the gate in fall 2016 as an admirably audacious drama with tricks up its sleeve to spare. Season 2 premieres March 11.

Commitment: Approx. 12 hours


Billions 89% (Showtime)

What it is: Showtime’s Billions dramatizes the high-stakes world of Wall Street when Chuck Rhoades, a U.S. attorney, sets his sights on bringing down hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod for insider trading and other illegal proclivities.

Why you should watch it: Paul Giamatti has built a career on playing the everyman, and here, he’s fighting for him. Giamatti’s turn as the hard-hitting U.S. attorney Rhoades would be reason alone to watch (scenes of unexpected BDSM and all), but Billions also boasts a timely, engrossing premise and firecracker performances from Damian Lewis and Maggie Siff that meet Giamatti mark for mark. Season 3 premieres March 25.

Commitment: Approx. 24 hours


Silicon Valley 94% (HBO)

What it is: This decorated HBO comedy from creators John Altschuler, Mike Judge, and Dave Krinsky is the story of wunderkind coder Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) as he and partner Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller) struggle to  to get their startup off the ground during Northern California’s tech boom.

Why you should watch it: Few shows pack as many laughs-per-episode as Silicon Valley. Through its hilarious portrayal of a company on the rise, it also taps into the real-world “brotopia” of the West Coast’s tech industry in more than just name with an assortment of memorable (and in the case of Middleditch, Emmy-nominated) performances across the board.

Commitment: Approx. 19 hours


The Americans 96% (FX)

Holly Taylor, Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell in The Americans (Patrick Harbron/FX)

What it is: Now entering its sixth and final season, this slow-burning espionage series stars real-life couple Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as married KGB spies infiltrating the nation’s capital at the height of the Cold War.

Why you should watch it: We know, we know: You’ve heard enough about Russia in today’s headlines, so why should you want to watch a show about KGB spies infiltrating the States? Trust us: The Americans isn’t just any show. In Russell and Rhys, the FX critical darling boasts two of television’s finest performers matched with airtight scripts and sublime direction and cinematography well deserving of its slew of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations over its five-year run. Season 6 premieres March 28.

Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNowGoogle PlayMicrosoftVudu

Commitment: Approx. 48 hours


A Series of Unfortunate Events 96% (Netflix)

What it is: Those poor, poor Baudelaire orphans — always getting caught up in events that are, well, unfortunate. Netflix’s whimsically dark series follows Violet, Klaus, and Sunny who, after they’re parents’ death, are put in the care of an evil distant cousin, Count Olaf, who’s set on getting his hands on their sizable inheritance.

Why you should watch it: Here, Neil Patrick Harris is doing more than just stealing the show here, as he did on for nine seasons on How I Met Your Mother. He is the show, making each master-of-disguise get-up as the menacing Olaf more beguiling than the one before it. It’s just an added bonus that the sets, music, and just about everything else about this series is technically dazzling.

Where to watch it: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 6 hours


Legion 91% (FX)

The cast of Legion (Michelle Faye/FX)

What it is: While Legion is among the most original — and, as a result, undefinable — series on TV today, in the simplest of terms, it’s the story of psych-ward patient David Haller (Dan Stevens) and his sidekick-turned-nemesis Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) as David more fully becomes what he’s always known himself to be: a mutant.

Why you should watch it: To anyone who says they’re tiring of the superhero genre overtaking film and TV, we say, “Have you seen Legion?” Noah Hawley’s absolutely singular X-Men–based vision is a mind-bending and engrossing head-scratcher that’s well worth committing to. And committing is exactly what Stevens and Plaza do with their no-holds-barred, fearless performances. Season 2 premieres April 3.

As we ramp up into summer, we reflect upon the 2016 winter/spring season, which brought with it a handful of top-notch TV shows worthy of Certified Fresh status. Whether they be series premieres or new seasons of returning shows, we’ve got all of them here in one place for you. Did your favorites make the list? Sound off in the comments below.

This week at the movies, we’ve got desert battles (Gods of Egypt, starring Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), a big city heist (Triple 9, starring Casey Affleck and Chiwetel Ejiofor), and winter games (Eddie the Eagle, starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman) What do the critics have to say?


Gods of Egypt (2016) 15%

Months before its release, Gods of Egypt drew heat for its lily-white casting. However, critics say a lack of diversity is only one of its many problems, which also include bombastic performances, cheesy special effects, and a surfeit of unintentional laughs. Set (Gerard Butler) has violently claimed the throne and ruled despotically, so it’s up to Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bek (Brenton Thwaites) to break his grip on power. The pundits say Gods of Egypt is a spectacularly misconceived would-be epic that might be more fun if it fully embraced its utter preposterousness.


Triple 9 (2016) 54%

Star-studded it may be, but Triple 9 is pretty far from Ocean’s Eleven or Now You See Me territory. Critics say this violent crime drama delivers its share of pulpy thrills, but its plot is both overstuffed and predictable. A crew of ruthless thieves comprised of former soldiers and dirty cops are blackmailed by Russian mobsters into taking on a nearly impossible heist, and to succeed, they’ll need to create a major distraction — a 999, code for “officer down.” The pundits say Triple 9‘s top notch roster of acting talent (which includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, and Kate Winslet) helps to elevate this dark, occasionally brutal genre picture.


Eddie the Eagle (2016) 81%

Die-hard sports fans will dimly remember Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, the British ski jumper whose indomitable spirit and last place finish at the 1988 Winter Olympics made him a folk hero. The critics say Eddie the Eagle, a fictional retelling of Edwards’ story starring Taron Egerton in the title role, is an occasionally over-saccharine inspirational sports film that nonetheless succeeds on the basis of its infections charm and strong performances.


What’s Hot on TV

Broad City: Season 3 (2016) 100%

Broad City returns with another strong season of Jacobson and Glazer’s hilarious outlook on the struggles of NYC life.


Togetherness: Season 2 (2016) 88%

Togetherness returns with its charm intact, though its compelling characters could stand to have a few more laughs.


Love: Season 1 (2016) 87%

Judd Apatow’s Love is an honest look at building a relationship, helped along by its two appealing leads.


Also Opening This Week In Limited Release

It’s time for our weekly countdown of the Winter TV premieres! Here are the best new shows for the week of Friday, February 19th. See how this week’s shows, Love, The New Yorker Presents, Better Call Saul, 11.22.63, and Broad City stack up against each other on the Tomatometer!

February is a great month for curling up in front of the TV with a warm fleece blanket, a hot cup of cocoa, and a good show, especially if you’re snowed in. Plus, we’ve got a bunch of great series returning later in the month (and in early March), so it’s the perfect time to get caught up, and there are a couple of brand new shows that will be available to stream right away. With that in mind, here are ten shows you should definitely consider binge-watching in February.


House of Cards: Season 3 (2015) 73%

House-of-Cards

What it is: A wily and ambitious congressman utilizes his considerable influence to climb his way up the political ladder, manipulating colleagues along the way and leaving unsuspecting victims in his wake.

Why you should watch it: Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey, who just won a SAG award on Saturday) is not a nice man, but he is, for better or worse, the show’s central figure. He manipulates, wheedles, gladhands, seethes, rants, negotiates, and plots behind closed doors, all to fulfill his personal vendettas. His wife, Claire (in an award-winning performance by Robin Wright) is his formidable ally through it all. Use February to get caught up on the Underwoods’ shenanigans, so you’re ready for the season four premiere on Netflix on March 4th.

Where to watch: All four seasons are on Netflix, Amazon, Google Play, PlayStation Video, Vudu, and Microsoft Store.

Commitment: 36 hours.


Bates Motel: Season 3 (2015) 95%

BatesMotel

What it is: In this contemporary Psycho prequel series, a bizarre mother-son relationship between Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) and the infamous Norman (Freddie Highmore) leads to violence and mental turbulence after moving to a small town in Oregon and opening a creepy motel.

Why you should watch it: This is one of those rare prequels that actually works. Fans of the Psycho franchise can enjoy along with folks who aren’t familiar; it works as a standalone story line. The top-notch cast effectively takes stabs at subtle — and not-so-subtle — intricacies in delivery, ultimately perfecting characters designed to disturb. With season four premiering on March 7, now is an ideal time to catch up on this exploration of lives so warped, they can’t help but delight.

Where to watch: A&E TV (with cable subscription), Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, NetflixPlayStation Video, and Vudu, as well as on DVD and Blu-ray.

Commitment: 25 hours.


Girls: Season 4 (2015) 83%

Girls

What it is: HBO’s hit comedy about four twenty-something female friends (Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, and Zosia Mamet) navigating life, and all it throws at them, while living in the Big Apple.

Why you should watch it: For one person to executive produce, write, and star in a show is almost reason enough to give it a chance to win you over. Dunham wears almost all the hats behind the scenes, and drew from her own real-life experiences as she poured her blood, sweat, and tears into Girls. So far, every season of Girls has been Certified Fresh, which is no small feat. Dive in now, and you’ll be ready for the season five premiere on HBO on February 21st.

Where to watch: All four seasons are on Amazon (with season one on Amazon Prime), Google Play, PlayStation Video, Vudu, Microsoft Store, and HBO GO.

Commitment: 21 hours.


Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (2015) 96%

Show-Me-A-Hero

What it is: Inspired by real life events and based on the nonfiction book of the same name, Show Me a Hero tells the story of the vitriolic dispute over a federally mandated order to build public housing in the middle class neighborhoods of Yonkers, NY.

Why you should watch it: David Simon wrote, produced and created this series with Wire alum and journalist William F. Zorzi. There is no doubt Simon is amply skilled at bringing to light those things we need to see, hear and feel — and his most recent miniseries for HBO reminds us just how lucky we are to have him telling such stories. Under the direction of Paul Haggis, and anchored by an immensely talented cast lead by Oscar Isaac, Show Me a Hero is bingeworthy material of the highest caliber.

Where to watch: Amazon PrimeGoogle Play, HBO Go, MicrosoftVudu, and also on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Commitment: About 6 hours.


Angie Tribeca: Season 1 (2016) 89%

AngieTribeca

What it is: In the vein of Police Squad! comes this hysterical slapstick single-camera police procedural spoof created by Steve and Nancy Carell.

Why you should watch it: An homage to the Leslie Nielsen school of deadpan farce, Angie Tribeca satisfies with its drop-dead serious devotion to ridiculous humor. Whether it’s fake grandparents being assigned to detectives who go deep, deep under cover (with deep voices), or an officer puking upon his every entrance to a crime scene, no matter the level of the crime, fans of the silly-funny will be amused, especially with guest appearances from folks like Lisa Kudrow, Danny Trejo, and Gene Simmons. The series is currently airing on TBS, but the first season is also available to stream in its entirety, for your binge-watching pleasure.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation Video, and TBS.com (with a cable subscription). 

Commitment: 5 hours.


Broad City: Season 2 (2015) 100%

Broad-City

What it is: Ilana and Abbi are twenty somethings navigating life in the big apple. Their voyages lead to an array of awkward, charmingly weird, sometimes cringeworthy and oftentimes out-right hysterical tomfoolery.

Why you should watch it: Created by UCB comedian alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and Executive Produced by Amy Poehler, Broad City has some seriously funny, talented women behind the show. Ilana and Abbi have dynamic chemistry and a unique humanizing brand of comedy. It’s no wonder the show has amassed loyal fans, the praise of critics — and Comedy Central’s recent order for a season four and five.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google PlayHulu, MicrosoftVudu, and on DVD.

Commitment: About 4 hours.


Peaky Blinders: Season 2 (2014) 100%

PeakyBlinders

What it is: This BBC drama, available in the US as a Netflix Original, follows the rise of the notorious Peaky Blinders gang in post-WWI England.

Why you should watch it: Come for the lush production design and pulsating score — stay for the badass performances. Cillian Murphy delivers as the icy-stared leader of the hardscrabble family gang. Helen McCrory is stellar as the hard as nails matriarch and — TOM HARDY. Although you’ll have to wait for season two for it, Hardy’s turn as baker-cum-vicious gang leader Alfie Solomons is a gift from the television gods.

Where to watch: AmazonGoogle Play, iTunes, MicrosoftNetflixPlaystation,and Vudu.

Commitment: 12 hours.


Togetherness: Season 1 (2015) 93%

Togetherness

What it is: A married couple struggling with relationship issues take on two new tenants: the husband’s recently evicted buddy and the wife’s recently dumped sister.

Why you should watch it: This is the first television series created by Jay and Mark Duplass, who have worked both together and independently on a number of critically acclaimed films and TV series, ranging from Baghead and Cyrus to Transparent and The League. If you’re a fan of their typically understated, frequently poignant brand of comedy, Togetherness will feel just right. The show’s simple premise also allows its characters to breathe and behave like real people, which makes it all feel authentic and hit home harder. With its second season premiering on February 21, now’s the perfect time for HBO subscribers to catch up if they missed it the first time around.

Where to watch: HBO GO

Commitment: About 3.5 hours.


Love: Season 1 (2016) 87%

NetflixLove

What it is: Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust play a young couple experiencing the ups and downs of commitment in an adult relationship.

Why you should watch it: There isn’t a whole lot of information available about Love at the moment, but we do know that it was co-created by Judd Apatow (alongside star Rust) and stars Gillian Jacobs, who proved her impeccable comic timing on the recent cult favorite NBC comedy Community. We also know that it will be dropping on Netflix, which has an excellent track record with original programming, and they’ve tackled similar material in Aziz Ansari’s Master of None with spectacular results. In other words, when the entire first season of Love becomes available on Netflix on February 19, you should check it out because all indications are pointing to another solid hit.

Where to watch: Season one will become available on Netflix on February 19.

Commitment: 5 hours.


Full House: Season 1 (2004)

FullerHouse

What it is: Suddenly widowed dad Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) enlists brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and childhood friend Joey (Dave Coulier) to move in and help raise his three daughters. D.J.(Candace Cameron) is the oldest at 10, followed by 5-year old Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and toddler Michelle (played interchangeably by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).

Why you should watch it: The first season has the most balanced comedy, emphasizing the adult tribulations of three bachelors who grapple with the logistics of raising young girls and coming to terms with a family death. As the Olsens matured, the show played up their tubular cuteness and the humor became more slapstick and broad as the seasons wore on, though there were also frequent arcs on dating and marriage. Netflix’s Fuller House sequel, set to premiere on February 26, parallels the original with D.J., now a suddenly widowed mother of three sons, moving into her childhood home with the help of Stephanie and original series next door neighbor Kimmy Gibbler.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, Microsoft, Playstation, and on DVD.

Commitment: 70 hours.
