Along with ‘go to the gym more’ and ‘get this bread,’ another popular 2019 resolution for most people may be to ‘be more productive.’ That goal may just have become more difficult as new T.V. shows have popped up and are ready to be binge watched immediately. Maybe 2020 will be a more productive year, but for now, it seems as though shows such as The Masked Singer, The Titan Games,  Stranger Things, and Games of Thrones will be taking the stage instead of productivity.

 

The Masked Singer has taken musical fans by storm as the American reality singing competition proves as a challenge to both sides of the television as fans attempt to figure out which celebrity singer is hidden under the mask. Based on the South Korean format The King of Mask Singer, the competition first premiered on January 2, 2019. The show features various celebrities dressed in a head-to-toe costume and face mask that conceals their identities not only from the audience but also other contestants and the panelists as they sing their way to the top. Hosted by Nick Cannon, the 12 contestants supposedly have a combined total of 65 Grammy nominations, 16 Emmy nominations, 9 Broadway shows, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 4 Super Bowl titles, and 4 stars on the Hollywood walk of Fame. With these standards, it proves difficult to put a name on a mask, but the viewers are given small hints revealing the celebrities identities throughout the show. Over ten episodes, the audience and judges will take their vote on which singer is the best and the singer with the lowest votes is eliminated and their identity is revealed.. With the few clues already revealed about the contestants, Mr. Stoughton is convinced that “the peacock is David Hasselhoff,” as do many others. Along with The Masked Singer craze, The Titan Games is also on the rise.

 

Created by the well know WWE wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, The Titan Games is yet another show that deserves to take the place of a productivity resolution or two. The sports competition is a series of ten episodes which feature people from across the United States, who compete in various mental and physical challenges of “epic proportions,” all of which are endurance based. As the show progresses, the sixteen Titans compete to be named the Titan champions, one male and one female. In future episodes, the newly victorious Titans will have to work to defend their title. By the end of the series, the ultimate showdown will occur at the obstacle course similar to Eliminator on American Gladiators, but instead referred to as “Mount Olympus,” where two men or two women compete head-to-head. The show’s tagline is enough to motivate any Titan because “Titans aren’t born, they’re made” and no Titan will back down until the end.

 

In addition to the new shows that are ready to be binge-watched, some old fan favorites are returning. Stranger Things took off in 2016 when it first premiered on Netflix, and news of the officially renewed show’s third season has given fans a date to mark on their calendars for the new year. A season three teaser hinted that in the summer of 2019 (since has been confirmed as July 4th) it would drop as an eight or nine episode season. Filming wrapped in November 2018, but the delay as explained by Netflix’s VP of original content, Cindy Holland, is because the show is “handcrafted.” Game of Thrones, similar to Stranger Things, is coming out with a new season, although this will be the last. Season eight of Game of Thrones has been long awaited for by fans, and the “epic fantasy series” as described by the official site of HBO, will return in April 2019 for its six episode, eighth and final season. At the end of 2019 though, viewers of shows of both the past and present will have hopefully been satisfied with the results, and as for now, it is time to push back productivity and start the new year off right with a binge worthy show.
