Shows to Stream 

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted

Everyone knows Gordon Ramsay for his tough, and at times demeaning, personality. Nonetheless, his cooking skills are famous for a reason. In Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, Ramsay travels around the United States, to states like Texas and Maine, and all over the world, to countries like Portugal and Croatia, to try cultural foods and delicacies. While we can’t necessarily vacation around the world during COVID, take a look at this show for a taste of what you’re missing. Watch Gordon Ramsay travel to countries like Ireland and Mexico in the latest July episodes on Disney Plus!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

Good news, Star Wars fans! New episodes of this sequel and spinoff of The Clone Wars will be gracing our screens in August. Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the experimental, but elite, clones of Bad Batch in the aftermath of the Clone War. Each member of the Bad Batch possesses a singular, exceptional skill that makes them genetically different from each other. Bad Batch brings back several characters that fans of the series will remember.
