News just broke that Amazon will begin streaming Viacom series later this summer. Details of specific series have not yet been released, though the selection will probably be very similar to what was previously available on Netflix.
Why limit it to Nickelodeon cartoons and "Tosh.O," though? Listed below is a dream queue that digs a little deeper into the Viacom catalog:YouTube and would be a great fit for streaming watch parties. The Real World" may have been groundbreaking when it premiered, its kid sister series "Road Rules" was often the more entertaining of the two. A crew of 20-somethings would pile into a Winnebago and compete in "Amazing Race"-style challenges while they traveled across a country or sometimes continent. Teenagers will marvel at the paper maps, lack of cell phones, and how young everyone from "The Challenge" looks.
"Hey Dude"Who doesn't love a good dude-ranch comedy? Khaki shorts and polos abound on this underrated Nickelodeon comedy. The best part: Future star Christine Taylor is a main character.
"2ge+her"In 2000, when boy bands like 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys were at their height, MTV threw its hat in the ring with a fictional boy band, 2ge+her (pronounced "together"). Casual MTV viewers often mistook them for a real band, which, in a way, they were. They opened for Britney Spears and got a single in the Hot 100. The movie based around the band and the subsequent TV series gained a cult following. The final episode of the series never aired in the U.S., so streaming the show's single season could be a good move for Amazon.
