If you haven't watched Hulu's dystopian thriller, now's the time to get caught up on the four episodes currently available. It's beautifully shot, masterfully acted and its themes are exceptionally timely.

<p>Doona Bae, <em>Sense8</em> </p>

2. Sense8
The first season of this Netflix sci-fi series premiered all the way back in June 2015, but that shouldn't stop you from jumping right in to Season 2 this weekend. The cerebral series will have you pondering human nature while admiring the beautiful scenery from all over the world.

<p>Kyle MacLachlan, <em>Twin Peaks</em> </p> <br>

Showtime's revival of this early-'90s classic premieres May 21, and you're definitely going to want to get caught up before then. There's a lot of mythology to remember. This one's available on Netflix, Amazon Prime and CBS All Access, so there are plenty of ways to watch it.
