There are more to Easter than colored eggs, gel beans and brunch. There is no television. And movies.

If you are lucky to get a long weekend around the spring holiday, you may find some extra time on your hands after the egg teeth have been around and consumed the honey glazed ham. If you are looking for something that you or the whole family can occupy, we have five TV shows and films that you should be happy every weekend.

If you only have an hour or so, and you love for smart humor: 'Special';

One of the best new shows so far this year is "Special" something unique, a competition about a gay man with a disability trying to find his identity. Ryan O 'Connell, a gay man with cerebral palsy and who plays version for himself, is writing the series and carries it in perfect configurations of BuzzFeed and millennial dating. It is short and playful in the short 15-minute short episodes, and all eight episodes are likely to be in a dormant sitting.

Rinse it on Netflix.

If you have a little more time and love 'Killing the Sea': 'Fleabag';

"Fleabag" is a short, dark British comedy created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge who founded "Killing Eve" (and earned an Emmy nomination for her writing on the show). Although the same arch comedy exists as "Eve," there is no female assassination or MI-6 agents at "Fleabag", but a very foul coffee owner. Based on the exhibition of any Bridge woman he made on London's West End, the series relates to a woman (called Fleabag only) who makes poor decisions and claims grief, guilt and self-hatred. The series is very clever, and it can be seen between jokes that are worthy of them and a terrible tragedy. Watch the six half hour programs this month to prepare for Season 2 for a long time on 17 May.

Rinse it Amazon.

If you only get enough chips and Jo: 'Fixer Upper';

A dose of Chip and Joanna Gaines could be just as your long weekend determines. The couple seen enthusiastically (HGTV has always been a great pleasure from family meetings, and you could be given some spring cleaning / restoration inspiration. Hulu has taken the fifth season and the final season of "Fixer Upper" to add to its catalog, which means that Waco, Texas, which you can enjoy is not so much revamped if you don't look religiously at adventures new on HGTV.

Rinse it on Hulu.

If you want everyone in your house to be quiet: 'A Quiet Place & # 39;

Families and friends can be a gift over major holidays, but they can be a pain when you are trying to cook, clean or just relax. If you want to remind a film that reminds everyone that golden silence and that parenting is alarming, try 2018 horror mastery John Krasinski. Krasinski wrote, directed and starred in the film with his wife Emily Blunt. "Quiet" occurs in a post-apocalyptic world where blind aliens endanger the improved hearing of mankind, and staying quiet is the only way to live.

Rinse it Amazon or Hulu.

If you want a major episode: 'The Ten Commandments';

There is no substitute for Cecil B. DeMille's significant biblical film when you are looking for something on the theme of the holiday. Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Ramses, and the film is a Hollywood classic and is worth revisiting.

ABC (Saturday, 7 EDT / PDT); rent it or buy it Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.
