Raise your hand if you’ve powered through your Netflix binge list in about, er, two days. If you’re in the same boat as us, Quibi’s show list may be the cure for your Netflix fatigue. Wait, but what the F is Quibi, you ask? Well, Quibi is a new streaming app that launches on April 6.

But Quibi isn’t any old streaming service. Compared to Netflix or Hulu (where most of us watch shows on our laptops or smart TVs), Quibi is designed for users who love to watch content on their phone but don’t have the patience to sit down for an hour-length episode. Each of Quibi’s episodes are 10 minutes or less, which means that you can squeeze in an ep or two while washing the dishes, working out or doing anything else around the house to keep yourself occupied.

If you’re TV obsessed like us, but don’t have the attention span for a feature-length movie, Quibi may be for you. The service costs $4.99 a month with ads and $7.99 a month without ads, and is available for download on the Apple App store and the Goole Play store. (The service also offers 90 days free, so users can test it out before they subscribe.)

Now, with that info out of the way, let’s break down why Quibi’s shows are a must-watch. Ahead, find our more about Quibi’s show list, from gripping dramas to LOL-worthy reality shows.

Most Dangerous Game

Liam Hemsworth stars as Dodge Maynard, a terminally ill man so desperate to care for his pregnant wife that he makes a deal with a mysterious man named Miles Sellers, played by Cristoph Waltz. The deal, of course, leads to a cat-and-mouse game between the two, which proves to be more dangerous than Dodge at first thought.
