American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson (2016)
Stars: Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., John Travolta, David Schwimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown
Binge-Worthy Because: Whether you remember the trial or not, the double murder of Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman is a sensational true-crime story, and one that everybody is talking about. So far, showrunner Ryan Murphy has done a fantastic job bringing the racially charged case to life again. And Paulson is compelling as Marcia Clark, the tough lead prosecutor. (Plus, little Kardashians.)
Time Commitment: 10 40- to 55-minute episodes (six left to air)
How To Watch: FX
Quantico Season 1 (2015)
Stars: Priyanka Chopra, Jake McLaughlin, Johanna Braddy, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri
Binge-Worthy Because: Honestly, it's all about Chopra. Her character, Alex, is smart, strong, and layered — and on-screen, Chopra mesmerizes. The twisty story line is a little bit Homeland, but sexier and more enjoyable to watch. Catch up now, because after that cliffhanger midseason finale, you'll be geared up for the season return on March 6.
Time Commitment: 11 43-minute episodes
How To Watch: ABC
Chelsea Does (2016)
Stars: Chelsea Handler
Binge-Worthy Because: Marriage, Silicon Valley, race, and drugs — Handler attacks each complex issue head-on with wit, genuine curiosity, and self-deprecation. Handler seamessly shifts between her personal perspective to other people's stories, as well as the global picture. At one moment, she's talking about her own racist stereotypes; the next, she's interviewing some Southerners who are confident that slaves actually had a pretty nice life.
Time Commitment: Four 70-minute installments
How To Watch: Netflix
You, Me and the Apocalypse (2016)
Stars: Rob Lowe, Jenna Fischer, Mathew Baynton, Gaia Scodellaro
Binge-Worthy Because: This apocalyptic comedy is off-beat, smart, and most of all, hilarious. If you're missing Rob Lowe as Chris on Parks & Rec, see him nail it here as basically the opposite: a swearing, chain-smoking priest. And the cast is refreshing in its realistic diversity. (As in, there are no "token Black guys.")
Time Commitment: Four 43-minute episodes
How To Watch: NBC
House of Cards Season 3 (2015)
Stars: Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Constance Zimmer, Mahershala Ali
Binge-Worthy Because: The fourth season premieres on March 4, and we know what we're doing next weekend. But with all of the shifting alliances and speed-plotting (and our speed-watching), it's hard to remember exactly where we left off — save for that pivotal final sequence, of course. Refresh your memory and delight in re-watching the sinister and cynical Frank.
Time Commitment: 13 50- to 60-minute episodes
