With all of the options for TV shows and films to stream these days, it can be difficult to narrow one down and start watching. Instead of scrolling for an hour through a list, check out these picks on what some of us at the Northern Star will be watching over the weekend.

Euphoria (HBO Max)

“Euphoria” has become the show that fans of the show look forward to watching every Sunday night. The second season finale is supposed to be released this coming Sunday on HBO Max, so I will be tuning in to see what is going to happen next and how the show will wrap up the number of different situations still yet to be resolved.

The show stars Zendaya as Rue, Hunter Schafer as Jules, Sydney Sweeney as Cassie, Alexa Demie as Maddy, Angus Cloud as Fezco, Maude Apatow as Lexi, Jacob Elordi as Nate and Storm Reid as Gia. 

Rue is a drug addict struggling to get and stay clean and her character narrates the show, even when giving background information on the other characters. I’m not going to spoil anything, but this show has so much going on that you’ll want to tune in to find out what happens next. – Madelaine Vikse, Lifestyle Editor

The Bachelor (Hulu)

“The Bachelor” is definitely a guilty pleasure show that I’ve been watching ever since I was little because my mom would watch it almost every week. Although it’s not the best show in terms of quality, it makes up for it with drama, awkwardness and comedy.

This year, the bachelor is Clayton Echard. It is now down to the final four women and it looks like the drama may be over for the season, but you never know for sure. This isn’t something you have to give your full attention to, so it’s nice to watch to relax. – Madelaine Vikse, Lifestyle Editor

Love is Blind (Netflix)

If you’re into unconventional dating reality shows, you’ll love “Love is Blind.” In this show, 30 singles try to find love in a really unique way because they try to form a genuine connection based on emotions, rather than physical appearances. 

The singles can talk to each other, speed dating style, in pods that allow them to hear each other but not see each other. When the men decide they’re ready to propose, the couples meet face to face for the first time. Brionna Belcher, Managing Editor
