Marco Polo, Gilmore Girls and House M.D. Premieres July 1 on Netflix Hong Kong
It’s a big weekend for Netflix: three binge-worthy shows are all launching this Friday, July 1, enough to curb you through the long weekend holiday and more.
Season 2 launches July 1
Netflix Original “Marco Polo” is back with its entire second season for yet more of Venetian explorer Marco Polo frolicking in the sometimes deadly court of Kublai Khan. We hear this season picks up much better than the first. Good news for Netflix, then, because it picked up the series for the 10-episode second season for a cool $90 million, which is apparently only second to the cost of “Game of Thrones.” Will Kublai Khan curb your cravings for more Khaleesi after GoT’s sixth season finale? Time to find out.
Seasons 1-7 launches July 1
Netflix is taking us back to Stars Hollow with all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, which wrapped up in 2007. That’s seven seasons of (potentially) non-stop fast-talking, coffee-binging glory that characterized the charming small town drama, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. That should prep you enough for Netflix’s reboot of the show: “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” coming to screens later this year.
Seasons 1-8 launches July 1
If you were major fans of Hugh Laurie’s non-smiling, slightly limping, and totally genius Doctor House, you now get to relive all his snarky diagnoses through seasons 1-8 on Netflix. If you don’t, it’s probably because you have Lupus, or something.
