For proof, just look at this text I had to send my own parents about TNT’s critically acclaimed The Alienist.
Nevertheless, there are still solutions for family binge sessions. You simply need to find compelling content that isn’t filled with explicit sex scenes or visceral killings. Those shows exist, and some of them are very good. Keep scrolling to find out what to press play on the next time you want to hunker down on the couch with your loved ones — whether it’s for the holiday season or a lazy weekend.
