With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.
The first season of Genius, the Nat Geo program that dramatically recreates moments in lives of legendary thinkers and creators, focused on Albert Einstein. It was really good, albeit completely missed by the general public. Luckily, Season 2 is in no way related to Season 1, so if you were one of the many who didn’t watch, you can hop on board now, no harm no foul. Now our attention turns to Pablo Picasso, played by Antonio Banderas and Alex Rich, as older Picasso and younger Picasso, respectively. We follow the iconic artist through his formative years, as he struggles to make his unique style accepted, and segue to his golden years as Banderas masterfully plays the role of tortured artist. The first episode premiered this week, so make some time this weekend to catch it.
