Stuck trying to decide what shows to watch? Still listening to the last summer’s hits? Bored in general and need a bit of a media reboot? Look no further. Here is some of the freshest stream-able content, as well as some throwbacks, to add the nostalgia factor.

Netflix

The Show: Stranger Things (Season 2)

If you haven’t already binged the whole season, then Stranger Things is the show to watch! It’s a spooky sci-fi/thriller that takes place in the 1980’s. The show follows a group of kids as they try to uncover the mysterious and monstrous happenings in their small town. If you are a lover of science fiction (and the 80’s) then this is the best show for you!

The Movie: Raw

Raw is a horror movie, with a twist. It focuses on a veterinary student freshman, who desperately wants to fit in as she strays from her principles. She eats raw meat for the first time during a hazing ritual and becomes a rabid cannibal. Be warned, the blood and gore content is high, but that doesn’t distract from the chilling story of blood sisters and their dark deeds. (The movie is in French but Netflix offers subtitles.)

Hulu

The Show: Future Man

Future Man is a new sci-fi/comedy with a 4.5 rating on Hulu. The show follows Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson), a janitor, who gets recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time to help prevent the extinction of humanity. If you like action movies, comedy and video games, this is the show to watch!

 

 

 

The Movie: Ocean’s 11

Ocean’s 11 is about a fresh-out-of -jail criminal (George Clooney), who designs and attempts to pull one of the biggest heists in history. He plans to rob the 3 biggest casinos in Las Vegas simultaneously (all of which are owned by the man who stole his ex-wife.) He hires a misfit crew of specialists and goes to work. If you like heist movies, action movies, or comedies this is a great throwback to watch.
