Living for the Dead
1 Season
Genre
Reality
Stars
Kristen Stewart, Alexandre LeMay, Roz Hernandez
Created by
Kristen Stewart, David Collins, Rob Eric, Renata Lombardo, Elaine White, CJ Romero
Watch on Hulu
A spooky twist on the Queer Eye concept, Living for the Dead follows five queer ghost hunters as they traverse the country “helping the living by healing the dead,” at least according to the tagline. Of course, there have been plenty of shows based around ghost hunters before, but Living for the Dead is designed to bring new life into a genre that has thus far been defined by a certain aesthetic and low-fi production values. Living for the Dead is designed to be just a little more uplifting than your average ghost show, and will hopefully be all the better for it.

Now partway through its second season, Our Flag Means Death continues to follow an aristocrat who decides to give up his worldly ties and become a pirate. One of the great revelations of the show’s first season was the way a relationship developed between this aristocrat and the infamous pirate Blackbeard. Along the way, Our Flag Means Death became a great rom-com because it was both a great romance and a great comedy. Fans of the first season are already seeing that this second season lives up to the hype.

Creepshow (2019)

Creepshow

4 Seasons
Genre
Mystery, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Created by
Greg Nicotero
Watch on Amazon
Now in its fourth season, Creepshow is an anthology series based on the 1982 horror movie of the same name. Because it’s an anthology, each outing features its own scary story, and those stories can take a wide array of forms across the spectrum of what horror is capable of. Sometimes, they’re stories of possessions, and other times, they’re about slashers. Whatever you are drawn to within the world of horror, you’re almost guaranteed to find it somewhere in Creepshow, which is also a very low commitment because every episode is a standalone story.

Created by
Michael Waldron
Watch on Disney+
Now that we’ve had what feels like hundreds of new Marvel shows, it can be hard to get excited for every single one. The return of Loki, which is now airing its second season, is particularly thrilling in large part because the series was so successful in its first season. Following the trickster god as he hops through time and attempts to save the entire universe from a mysterious figure he met in the first season, Loki season 2 has proved to be thrilling and clever in its own right and also an important jumping-off point for the rest of the MCU. While every Marvel show has its merits, Loki remains among the best of the studio’s Disney+ offerings.

Vjeran Tomic
Directed by
Jamie Roberts
Watch on Netflix

A documentary telling the story of Vjeran Tomic, Paris’s Spider-Man is sure to have anyone interested in unusual stories and true crime riveted. Tomic made headlines in the 2010s for pulling off robberies many thought unimaginable through a combination of unique climbing skills and his own imagination. Now, this documentary is set to bring his story to an even wider audience, and help the public understand who Tomic is, and how he honed the skills he ultimately used to rob the Paris Museum and other high-profile buildings around the city.

Genre
Horror
Stars
Lizzy Caplan, Antony Starr, Cleopatra Coleman
Directed by
Samuel Bodin
Watch on Hulu
Following a young boy who hears tapping in his bedroom and begins to suspect that his parents are hiding something sinister from him, Cobweb is the kind of horror/thriller that used to dominate at the box office in October. Starring Anthony Quinn and Lizzy Caplan, the film is filled with juicy twists and turns, and its choice to keep us anchored in the perspective of the film’s young central character keeps the audience on the edge of their seats until the final credits roll.

Crime, Horror, Mystery
Stars
David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox
Directed by
Wes Craven
Watch on max
The ultimate horror movie parody, the original Scream is worth watching every single year, in part because it functions as both a great scary movie and a sendup of the slasher genre. Following a young girl and her friends as they get murdered one by one by Ghostface, even as they recognize that Ghostface is a fan of scary movies, Scream was a moment when the horror genre fundamentally changed forever. The sequels are all worth checking out, too, but none of them can match the joy and power that the original Scream still possesses.

Totally Killer (2023)

Totally Killer
106m
Genre
Horror, Comedy
Stars
Kiernan Shipka, Olivia Holt, Julie Bowen
Directed by
Nahnatchka Khan
Watch on Amazon
A send-up of scream queen classics, Totally Killer is set 35 years after a series of murder strikes a small town. When a 17-year-old winds up back in 1987, she decides to team up with a teenage version of her own mother to stop the murderer before he can even strike. Kiernan Shipka stars in this fun, genre-bending exercise, which is almost guaranteed to leave you more entertained than horrified. Like Happy Death Day before it, Totally Killer is wringing lots of mashing up to ideas.

UFC Fight Night: Makhachev vs. Volkanovski — 10/21

A featherweight fight between two of the very best in the sport, this matchup between two fighters who have a combined three losses on their records is guaranteed to be explosive. Although it isn’t the title fight many originally expected to occupy this timeslot, this fight should be more than enough for UFC fans who are eager to see one that goes as long as possible. The fight kicks off at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Playoff Baseball

There are only four teams left in Major League Baseball, and we’ll likely know which two are headed to the World Series by the end of the weekend. The Phillies are currently in the lead in the NLCS, and the Rangers in the ALCS, but the Diamondbacks and Astros aren’t out of the hunt yet. There’s still plenty of baseball left to play, and only time will tell which two teams are headed to the big dance at the end of the season. Will we see a rematch of last year? It’s still possible, although it may not be the likeliest outcome at this point.

United States Grand Prix — 10/22

Formula One comes stateside with the United States Grand Prix, which will be held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. This is not the last time that Formula One will be stateside this season, and as the sport becomes more and more popular in America, it seems like it may draw bigger and bigger crowds. Will Formula One eventually be able to surpass NASCAR’s persistent popularity? Only time will tell. The race kicks off at 6:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Watch on F1TV

Miami Dolphins vs. Philadelphia Eagles — 10/22

Two 5-1 teams facing off in primetime is a recipe for an exciting game. The Dolphins have looked like one of the league’s most dominant teams all season, thanks to a nearly unstoppable offense. The Eagles, meanwhile, are coming off of a loss and a season that took them all the way to a devastating Super Bowl loss. Expectations are through the roof for both teams this season, and it’s not impossible that these two teams could meet again in the last game of the season, which only adds to the stakes of this game. Kickoff is at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday.

F1 Brazilian GP live stream: Watch Formula 1 for free
Lewis Hamilton (44) driving for Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team during The Australian Formula One Grand Prix Race on April 02, 2023, at The Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Albert Park, Australia.

The F1 Championship continues with the Brazilian Grand Prix starting soon. It's going to be an exciting race with Max Verstappen sure to want to build on his victory in Mexico last week. If you want to see the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix live stream, there's a particularly great way to do so and even better -- it won't cost you a cent. Intrigued to know more? Here's all you need to know about how to watch the thrilling race.
Watch the free Brazilian GP live stream
The Brazilian Grand Prix is being aired for free in Austria and Luxembourg. This is great news for those in the countries, but devastating for residents traveling abroad who want to watch the action unfold live in their local language -- especially when it's free-to-watch at home. It's only natural that an Austrian currently in the United States would want to watch the race in Austrian and not English, right? This is completely safe and legal to do with a VPN like NordVPN. Just install it, choose to the location you wish to connect to, then fire up broadcast. The free streams are ORF in Austria or RTL Zwee in Luxembourg.

Unfortunately, there isn't a free Brazilian GP live stream for residents of other countries. Elsewhere, folks will need to tune in through a local broadcast partner. The race is available on ESPN in the United States, and the best way to tune in is through fuboTV, which offers a one-week free trial to new customers In the United Kingdom, it's available on Sky Sports F1, and over in Canada it's being broadcast in English through TNS and in French through RDS. There are some other options available as well -- below we'll talk you through the different ways you can tune in locally in the United States in more detail.

Will F1 move to Apple TV Plus?
Formula 1 cars winding their way down a track.

Formula 1 could be coming to Apple TV Plus in the near future. According to a report in Business F1, the company has "wargamed" the idea of bringing F1 races to their streaming service, and they are now seriously considering making an offer.

This F1 news is believed to have been sparked by the success that Apple has had broadcasting Major League Soccer. The company charges an extra fee to users to watch the games, and it has apparently found success in that model. Business F1 reports that Formula 1 has declined to comment on the report, and also suggested that while Apple is considering an offer, the company has not made one yet.
Apple's offer for F1 could be as much as $2 billion
