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.
Matthew Weiner looks to follow up the success of Mad Men with his latest series, The Romanoffs, a new show on Amazon that follows the supposed descendants of a Russian royal family, wherever they may be around the world. Mad Men fans will see a lot of familiar faces, as Weiner enlisted the likes of Christina Hendricks and John Slattery once again. Rounding out the cast is a slew of big names—Diane Lane, Aaron Eckhart, and Paul Reiser, among others. The show arrives with a good bit of hype, though early reviews—at least on Amazon—are less than stellar. We’re still excited to give it a shot this weekend. Link
