TV Shows to Binge Watch During Quarantine

We're super busy during most of the school year, and rarely have a chance to enjoy tv shows as a family.

It's actually why we're partial to movie nights, since they are typically single films and we don't have to commit to being able to set aside a certain night of the week.  But with quarantine?  It's been a great time to catch up on the shows that we have really wanted to watch so we're ready for the new seasons when they release this summer and fall.

What shows have we had to catch up on?  For our family, it's mostly superheroes and mystery type shows.  We are now just waiting on the next seasons of a few of our favorites.

Super Girl Season 5, Available 9/8/2020
In season five, Supergirl faces threats, both new and ancient. National City becomes enthralled with addictive virtual reality technologies created by CatCo's charming-but-secretive new owner, Andrea Rojas. As Kara uses the power of the press to try to expose this danger, she must contend with challenges put up by rival reporter William Dey, renegade Martian Malefic J'onzz, a shadowy organization called Leviathan, and the shocking return of Lex Luthor who, in addition to his plot for world domination, seeks to claim the soul of Supergirl's best friend (and his sister) Lena. With humanity choosing to lose itself in technology, can Supergirl save the world yet again?

DC Legends of Tomorrow Season 5, Available 9/22/20
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow follows a group of misfit heroes as they fight, talk, and sing their way through protecting the timeline from aberrations, anomalies, and anything else that threatens to mess with history. After saving the world via the power of song and themed entertainment in last season’s finale, the Legends are major celebrities. Some struggle with the transition from lovable losers to A-list stars, while others start letting fame go to their heads. When a documentary crew decides to film the Legends in action, distracting them from their original mission, Astra Logue frees history’s most notorious villains from Hell in a bid for power. It’s up to the Legends to forgo fame and stop these reanimated souls (who they quickly dub “Encores”) from wreaking havoc on the timeline, whether it’s Rasputin popping out of his coffin and trying to become an immortal tsar or Marie Antoinette (and her head) turning the French Revolution into a deadly, non-stop party.

The Flash Season 6, Available 8/25/20
Last season, Team Flash spent the last year dealing with not one, but two Cicadas, the return of Eobard Thawne, aka Reverse Flash, and the surprise arrival from the future of Barry and Iris’ daughter, Nora West-Allen, aka XS. The stakes were higher than ever during the season five finale. In season six, Team Flash contends with not one, but two all-new villains – Bloodwork and Mirror Master!

Knowing these shows are coming soon, it helped us decide which shows to enjoy right now so we'll be ready for the complete seasons when they release.
