How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?

Category: Art & Culture,Arts

No matter how much free time you have this weekend, we have TV recommendations for you. Come back every week for new suggestions on what to watch.

‘The Aquarium’
When to watch: Sunday at 8 p.m., on Animal Planet.

The Georgia Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in the world, so there’s plenty going on: mischievous penguins who need tending, a curious sea turtle who needs additional fun hiding places in his habitat, a pregnant blue-spotted ray who needs an ultrasound. This new behind-the-scenes series is plenty interesting for adults and appropriate for kids. Or anyone else who has dreamed of wearing a bandoleer of clams and shrimp to feed to eager zebra sharks.

‘Game of Thrones’
When to watch: Sunday at 9 p.m., on HBO.

The conversations around “Game of Thrones” are more vivid and compelling than the show itself, which is why the series finale is destined for greatness — not because the episode will be so satisfying or magical or mind-blowing or whatever but because the cultural moment will be. Even if you haven’t really followed the show, think of it as watching a fantasy-world “American Idol” finale: There’s going to be a lot of awkward hemming and hawing, and ultimately a winner will be crowned. Just enjoy the (dragon) ride.

‘Claws’
When to watch: Now, on Hulu.

Season 2 of this juicy drama is now streaming, and Season 3 starts in June. Niecy Nash stars as Desna, who owns a Florida nail salon and is also a money launderer with ties to the Dixie Mafia. “Claws” has a soft spot for seediness, for garish aesthetics and clackety shoes. Think the sunshine and sweat of “Dexter,” the overlapping criminal subcultures of “Justified” and the female-ensemble sprawl of “Orange Is the New Black,” all with a good dose of sudsiness.
