1. Game of Thrones
The final season of Game of Thrones is kicking off this weekend, so get ready to talk about nothing else till it's over. There are so many questions to answer before the epic fantasy series wraps up that we're not quite sure where to begin. The first and most pressing concern is those White Walkers marching south — now with an undead dragon — but the issue on everyone's mind is, who will sit on the Iron Throne in the end? Place your bets now because this ride is about to go full throttle.
Fosse/Verdon is FX's latest limited series. Focusing on the legendary creative team that was Bob Fosse (Sam Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon (Michelle Williams), the eight-episode series tells the story of their romantic and professional relationships. The series is a visually lush emotional roller coaster all about how art and life intertwine, influence, and on occasion, destroy each other. If that's not your jam, the dazzling dance will be.
3. The Perfect Date
Noah Centineo is capitalizing on his fame as the internet's boyfriend in a new Netflix rom-com in which he literally plays the internet's boyfriend. In The Perfect Date, a high school student builds an app that allows people to rent him for dates so he can earn enough money to go to college. As you can imagine, one of those dates turns out to be more valuable than its monetary value. Riverdale's Camilla Mendes co-stars in the predictable but delightful high school romantic comedy.
