BINGE-WORTHY: Superstore and The Blacklist

SUPERSTORE

Superstore follows a quirky ensemble cast of staff that work in a supermarket called Cloud 9. Basically like every other big-box store in the United States, Cloud 9 sells guns, video games, furniture…practically anything you can think of. The show’s lightheartedness is therapeutic and offers a breath of fresh air, with hilarious cold opens and interesting characters. Although the setting is incredibly ordinary, the cast shines bright and so does every story.

Superstore airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC. It is also available to stream on Hulu, your cable provider’s app, and/or the NBC programs.

THE BLACKLIST

The Blacklist follows the story of the F.B.I.’s most wanted criminal, Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), and F.B.I. profiler, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). This show is definitely not for the faint of heart. With its gorey scenes, dark twists, and incredible performances from its diverse cast, The Blacklist is an intense show perfect to binge with a bowl of popcorn.

The Blacklist airs Fridays at 8/7c on NBC. It is also available to stream on Netflix (US), your cable provider’s app, and/or the NBC programs.
