0


The new year is just around the corner. When you’re home for the holidays or curled up on the couch avoiding the cold, it’s the perfect time to catch up on all the TV shows and movies that have been filling up your must-see list.

Here are some TV shows and movies to watch and stream over the holiday break on Amazon Prime, Netflix, Disney+, along with HBO, and Hulu.

The Witcher / Netflix

The Witcher – Netflix: Henry Cavill muscled up yet again for his new role as monster hunter Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher. Netflix is hoping this series has the appeal of a Game of Thrones, and is adapted from the popular book series of the same name. The show takes place on “the Continent” and follows Geralt as he makes his way through dangerous landscapes, crossing paths with a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a dangerous secret. Streaming begins Dec. 20.

Watchmen / HBO

Watchmen – HBO/HBO Now: Now that the first season of this series has finished airing, it’s the perfect time for a binge. Based on the iconic graphic novel of the same name, the show is set in an alternate history of the United States, where masked vigilantes have been outlawed due to their violent way of doing business. Creator Damon Lindelof has made a “remix” series that picks up decades after the events of the comic book—but also digs into those events in a new, thrilling way. The less we say, the better. Starring an all-star cast of Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, Hong Chau, and Men’s Journal’s fall fashion star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, this is a series you won’t want to miss.

6 Underground – Netflix: Get ready for some big explosions. Ryan Reynolds stars as the leader of a secret and mysterious team of operatives who travel around the world to take down criminals and bad political leaders. Directed by Michael Bay, Netflix film crew shot in various locations around the world including Italy, Hungary, and Abu Dhabi. One of the biggest sequences was shot in Florence, where one of the stunt drivers went through a 15th-century building. (Get a closer look at the stunts, cars, and training for those stunts here.)
