Welcome to The Weekly Binge, a column by The Guide editor Nick Bhasin, who takes you on a delightful jaunt through the TV highlights on SBS On Demand.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is the tenacious satire you’ve been dreaming about

What is this?! What are you talking about?!

Okay, okay. Take it easy. Samantha Bee was a correspondent on The Daily Show for 13 years and now she's got her own show.

Why in heaven’s name would I watch this?

Along with John Oliver, also a TDS alum, this is really the only late night show worth watching consistently.

Can you give me a quick, hilarious tour of the Full Frontal offices?

I sure can:

The first nine episodes are on SBS On Demand. Here's episode 1:

Watch all of Bosch season 1 so season 2 doesn’t catch you off guard

What?! When is season 2 happening?!

The first episode of season 2 will be available on SBS On Demand on 27 April, which is soon.

How on Earth will I find the time?!

Well, that’s something only you can answer. But Titus Welliver, the star of the show, thinks Bosch is perfectly suited to binge watching, so I recommend you do it that way. Just sit down somewhere and don’t get up until the whole thing is over.

Start with episode 1, season 1 here:

Witness the Swedish robot revolution in Real Humans

Hold on. The robots are revolting? Should we be worried?

Well, the show’s hubots, as they’re called, only want equal rights and to be free. But to answer your question, you don’t need to be worried. Unless you live in Sweden.

I loved Blade Runner and I still think a lot of people I know are robots. Will I enjoy this show?

Definitely. The line between humanity and robot-ity is pretty blurred and you’ll start questioning what it means to be a person.

Seasons 1 and 2 are on SBS On Demand.

Watch the first episode here:

Speaking of questioning humanity… join Werner Herzog on Death Row

This sounds intense.

It is. The German director talks to inmates awaiting execution about life and their impending death.

Where should I start?

You might as well start with the heaviest stuff. The subject of episode 4 of season 2 is Darlie Routier, who stabbed her two sons with a carving knife.
