Orange Is the New Black Season 6

After last season’s riot, some of the women of Litchfield will find themselves inside of a maximum security prison. Their new digs come with new dangers, and the sense of trust that they’ve found in each other will be tested. Things are about to get darker than usual in Season 6, and you’re not going to want to miss out.

Iliza Shlesinger: Elder Millennial

Iliza Shlesinger is one of the most reliably funny comedians working today. Her latest Netflix special will tackle what her life is like at the age of 35. From sex to the workplace, no topic is taboo for this hilarious woman.

The Bleeding Edge

This documentary might make you paranoid. However, this deep dive into the medical device industry is thought-provoking and more than a little bit scary. Don’t let the doc scare you away from medical advances, but if it makes patients ask more questions, that can’t be a bad thing, right?

Our Picks:

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

A trio of teen boys in ’70s era Britain stumbles upon a group of aliens. What follows is an exploration of punk culture, a strange sci-fi comedy, and a remarkably bizarre turn from Nicole Kidman as an alien leader.

Eat.Race.Win. Season 1
