Hurricane Sandy: 5 On-Demand Television Marathons to Survive the Storm (PHOTOS)
Hurricane Sandy is coming, and chances are, if you’re on the East Coast, you may have the day off today from work and/or school.
After you’ve made sure you’re safe by battening down the house and getting your supplies together and while you still have power of course, Celebuzz has come up with five on-demand TV marathons you should be watching to bide your time at home.
Whether you like drama, reality, music or comedy we’ve got you covered for a day in front of the small screen.
After last night’s sure-to-be 2013 Emmy submission episode for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, our top pick for your day(s) off is Homeland. This riveting political drama will keep you on the edge of your couch all day/night until you’ve finished all 17 episodes. And when you’re done, you’ll be wanting more. (Trust us, we marathoned Season 1 in 2 days). Xfinity, Fios and Time Warner all have the award-winning first season along with the first five episodes of Season 2.Game of Thrones (HBO)
Whether or not you’ve seen the epic show that is Game of Thrones before, this show is always worth a second viewing. With so many characters and storylines to follow, what better way to spend your day off than by catching up or rewatching what’s happened in the Seven Kingdoms. Xfinity, Fios and Time Warner have all of Season 1 and Season 2 ready for your viewing pleasure.
Real Housewives (Bravo)
Want some good juicy fun and drama on your day off? Watch The Real Housewives. Select episodes from Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Miami and Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New York City are available on Xfinity, Fios and Time Warner.
The Voice (NBC)
More of a competitive singing competition fan but don’t always have time to watch the multiple episodes aired every week? Time Warner On-Demand has the whole third season of The Voice. From the blind auditions to the battles, you can watch as Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green duke it out for contestants on the No. 1 singing show. The best part: you can fast forward through commercials and get all caught up for Monday’s Knockout rounds. The great performances are also good background music for your day if you’d rather be doing two things at once.Parks and Recreation (NBC)
Want to spend the day laughing A LOT? Queue up NBC’s Parks and Recreation. The hilarious comedy about the Parks department in Pawnee, Indiana will make you laugh and pull at your heartstrings. Not enough people are watching Amy Poehler and the gang on a regular basis, so get to your TV and fix that. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed. If you’re already a fan of the comedy, you know there’s no better way to make you forget the storm outside by taking a trip to Pawnee. Xfinity and Fios has every episode of the show thus far. Time Warner has the first five episodes of Season 5. If you're not up for starting from the beginning, we suggest starting with Season 3.
