Narrowing Down The Most Entertaining Quibi Shows So Far
Quibi, one of the most anticipated new streaming services, is finally here! For those who don’t know, the new service is backed by some of the biggest names in Hollywood and specializes in ‘quick bites’, a.k.a. QB or … Quibi! It aims to provide premium content for those who have 5 minutes to kill. All of the content on the Quibi app is made specifically to be viewed on your phone and adapts to your screens orientation. Here are the best Quibi shows we’ve seen so far…
Murder House Flip
Murder House Flip seems like a skit straight out of Saturday Night Live, but it’s very real — and actually pretty interesting! The odd mixture of a true crime and a home makeover show aims to renovate homes involved in some of the most infamous murders.
‘Designers Joelle and Mikel remove the stains of the past and make once morbid homes marvelous.’ – Quibi
New 5-minute episodes of Murder House Flip is released every weekday. These quick episodes are definitely worth the watch — if only for the bizarre mixture.
When the Streetlights Go On
The 8-minute first episode of Quibi’s When the Streetlights Go On ends on a morbid note. Set in 1995, high school student Charlie Chambers tries to unearth the truth behind a double murder in his hometown.
When the Streetlights Go On is described as a ‘Coming of Age Drama’ and focuses on the teenage residents of the town shaken by the murders. This one sort has a Riverdale vibe but with a more mature tone.
Gone Mental with Lior
Gone Mental with Lior has been my favorite Quibi show so far. Mentalist Lior Suchard plays mind games with various celebs including Rob Gronkowski and YouTube star David Dobrik.
Each 6-minute episode features a new celebrity and mind blowing demonstrations of Lior’s prowess. You’ll be just as shocked as his victims and go insane trying to figure out how he’s doing it!
Gone Mental with Lior releases new episodes every weekday.
Quibi has successfully revived the popular show from MTV’s golden age and put Chance the Rapper in charge of the pranking! Punk’d takes advantage of Quibi’s short episode runtime for and gets straight to the point. No small talk, no filler.
As soon as each episode starts, you learn the target and get right into the fun. The first episode of Quibi’s Punk’d features Megan thee Stallion in a hysterical prank involving a gorilla!
Run This City
Run This City is a Quibi docuseries about the youngest mayor in Massachusetts history. Jasiel Correia was only 23-years-old when he became mayor of Fall River, MA. He seemed to have it all — he was young, well-spoken, handsome … and he may or may not have played dirty.
This story plays out like a small scale version of House of Cards, but in real life. New 8-minute long episodes release every weekday.
Speedrun by Polygon
