Watch the Best Episodes of a TV Series With ShowSkimmer

Watch the Best Episodes of a TV Series With ShowSkimmer

The site ShowSkimmer is a new tool for finding the best episodes of a TV show. Search for a series, and ShowSkimmer will list the best 5, 10, 25, or 50 episodes, in chronological order. It’s a great way to watch a series while skipping all the forgettable episodes—which is especially good for long-running sitcoms with light plots and a lot of time to fill. If you’re watching something short...

What Your Kid Can Learn From BBC’s 'Sarah & Duck'

What Your Kid Can Learn From BBC’s 'Sarah & Duck'

In the British cartoon Sarah & Duck, Sarah is a girl who lives with her best friend, a mallard named Duck. Their home is devoid of adults except the omnipresent narrator/possible dad. Each short episode follows the pair through both mundane activities (like making a cake) and fantastical scenarios (like the cake batter coming to life to coach them on its baking).

Self-described as “wide-eyed,...

Jerry Seinfeld is back behind the wheel of a lot of fancy cars (and it looks like one moped?) as the next installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee drops on Friday. Bridget Everett, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Jamie Foxx and Seth Rogen are all part of the innocuous, low-commitment froth this time around. If you prefer something with a very slight bit more gravitas, may I suggest...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of December 31, 2018

The end of year offerings from Netflix were grim, so it is with pleasure that I welcome the bumper crop of entertainment in this week’s harvest. We’ve got the full complement of Indiana Jones flicks arriving on Tuesday (I see we are now calling the first installment “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which I guess is helpful for alphabetical filing?)

Old Home Week continues with...

Unplug Your Electronics Before a Thunderstorm

Unplug Your Electronics Before a Thunderstorm

Bad weather around the corner? You may have to endure a rainy day without electronic distractions—that is, if you still want your television to turn on the following day.

Today, CNET brought up the one question many of us asked ourselves during a thunderstorm: Should I unplug my PS4, Xbox, and other electronics or risk frying them all to death when a storm rolls in?

Check the Weather for Your...

Let’s cut the crap and stop pretending there’s anything you want to watch this week besides The Great British Baking Show: Collection 6 (better known as Series 9 in the UK). It’s the most soothing show that ever there was and we all know it.

Too sticky sweet? Then perhaps you’ll enjoy Westside,  a new “unscripted Netflix series” (read: “reality show”) that was definitely elevator-pitched as...

Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgård in a “harrowing mystery” set in a remote Alaskan village? Let’s do this! Hold the Dark is directed by Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin) and premieres on Friday. I haven’t seen A Wrinkle in Time (Tuesday) and probably won’t watch because it will ruin my precious memories of the book (Charles Wallace!), but I hear it’s very good for kids.

Oh, and there’s a new...

Is there one show everyone agrees is stellar? Yes, and that show is Black Mirror. And Season 5 (there have been four seasons?! We are getting old, friends) drops on Wednesday. Wednesday! A weird day of the week to debut a highly anticipated series! Start coughing and complaining of chills on Monday and your calling in sick on Wednesday will seem totally plausible.

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of September 17, 2018

I’m most excited this week about a weird limited series called Maniac from Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective, It). Emma Stone and Jonah Hill star as patients in a “mindbending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” It looks like they hallucinate themselves into a lot of wacky situations, allowing for lots of different costumes, wigs and prosthetics, which is always a good...

What to Watch When It's Hot as Hell and You Refuse to Go Outside

What to Watch When It's Hot as Hell and You Refuse to Go Outside

Post-July 4th, things get disgusting, weather-wise, in much of the U.S. In New York City, where I and much of Team Lifehacker live, we spend a lot of time outside, shuffling through the humid, hot-dog-scented soup that is summer in a crowded, polluted metropolis. And so we become indoor cats, taking refuge indoors, looking for the hermit’s equivalent of the beach read, which, as everyone...

I'm Angela Santomero, Creator of 'Daniel Tiger,' and This Is How I Parent 
How I ParentThere’s no one-size-fits-all template for parenting—here’s how some moms and dads are making it work.  

The moment I first became a believer in the power of Daniel Tiger happened when my daughter was 3. She was on a playdate at the park when I announced it was time to get ready to go home. Instead of melting into my lap and whimpering as she’d done in the past (goodbyes are so...

It’s May, and your cup runneth over—if not in all areas of your life, then at least the most important one: the area in which you recline on your sectional, eating Pop Corners while alternately watching TV and playing on your phone (some call this area the “living room”; I prefer “salon” or “parlour”). We’ve got Knock Down the House (Wednesday), a doc about AOC’s 2018 congressional campaign....

Life is hard, and for this reason, you deserve something nice, which is why I got you Nailed It!: Season 3 (Friday). There’s a lady with Iris Apfel glasses this season!

We’ve already discussed how I feel about the NO Still LAUGH-IN: The Stars Celebrate  (also Friday) so I won’t go into it again except to say that I’m pretty sure the show, which I remember as a mixture of catchphrases...

A moody teen love story with a supernatural twist featuring Guy Pearce uttering lines like, “You’re a young woman in a frightening new world. I think you just need somebody to walk through it with you”? Could it be this summer’s answer to Stranger Things? Let us hope that The Innocents (Friday, Aug. 24) is even half as entertaining— if it is, it’ll win the week.

Other promising debuts include...

I will not, for love or money, be watching Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross & Dave Attel, but I’m aware that these are two “comedian’s comedians” and there are a lot of people who do not find them tedious and self-indulgent. So, feel free to watch these two dudes “roast each other, the audience, and special guests” starting Tuesday.

I’m going to throw my (top) hat in the ring for Death by Magic...

Black Panther. Tuesday. If you need anything else to watch, Next Gen (Friday, Sept. 7), an animated kid-and-robot-vs.-the-bullies feature starring John Krasinski, Jason Sudeikis and Charlyne Yi looks kind of fun. Its tagline is “Friendship is the ultimate upgrade” which, having just gotten AirPods, I take issue with—but the movie’s probably decent nonetheless.

Whatever is going on in the calamitous phantasmagoria known as I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Tuesday) is both frightening and intriguing, and it’s the best you’re going to do on Netflix this week. Allegedly, it’s a sketch comedy show brought to you by The Lonely Island, starring Robinson, of Comedy Central’s Detroiters (I must be watching too much Netflix because this is the...

Who among us is excited for the triumphant return to the stage of Ray Romano? Not me! But I’m assuming the same people who kept Everybody Loves Raymond on the air for 11 years have been anxiously anticipating Ray Romano: Right Here, Around the Corner, Romano’s first standup special in 23 years, which hits Netflix on Tuesday.

Let’s hope that ¡Nailed It! México (Friday) is going to be as fun as...

'The Stinky & Dirty Show' Teaches Kids to Ask, 'What If?' 

'The Stinky & Dirty Show' Teaches Kids to Ask, 'What If?' 

There’s a problem in the city. A dump truck has dropped her bin full of bowling balls all over the street without realizing it—the balls that were supposed to be delivered to the bowling alley. Stinky, a garbage truck, and Dirty, a backhoe loader, see it happen and decide they will get the balls to the destination themselves. But how? They try different strategies. What if they lifted each...
