Time Traveling Bong

This three-part series centres on cousins played by Broad City stars Ilana Glazer and Paul Downs, who discover that their bong has the ability to transport them through space and time.

Sharee and Jeff are two mediocre, suburban cousins who live together in a condo left to them by their grandmother in New Jersey.

Their mundane lives take a twisted turn when they find a bong that also serves as a time machine, which transports them to Salem, Massachusetts in the height of the witch trial era, the racially segregated South in the 1960s, ancient Greece and even the dystopian future, among other times and places.

Their buzz is killed when the bong breaks and they are forced to bounce around the space time continuum, learning to appreciate that there's no time like the present.

The Real Housewives of Orange County 15

Returning for Season 15 are Shannon Storms Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.

The ladies are joined by new housewife Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, a soon-to-be divorcee who is ready to kick off the next chapter of her life with a little fun in the OC.

2020 starts off on a real high for the ladies with new homes, boyfriends, a fiancé and a new a hip.

Past secrets emerge and newfound happiness is questioned as the ladies press to find out if everything is what it seems.

The impact of coronavirus definitely takes its toll on the women and their relationships at home and with each other as they each try to adjust to their new reality.

The season documents their lives from February to August 2020 with self-shot footage during quarantine.

Coming up this season:

Shannon starts the year off in complete bliss with her boyfriend John and a new place to call home for her and her three daughters in Newport.

As the sole member left in the Tres Amigas, Shannon makes peace with Kelly, but quickly gets herself into hot water with a few of the ladies.

When the news of coronavirus hits, it brings her anxiety to all-time high and causes tension between her and John when a division arises over house rules with the kids during lockdown.

Shannon's worst fears eventually come to fruition when she learns that along with her three daughters, she too has contracted COVID-19.

She documents their journey to recovery on her cellphone.

Starting the year off on a high following her engagement to Fox News Reporter Rick Leventhal, Kelly is eager to settle into their new home in Newport as she waits for him to officially get transferred to the LA bureau.

During stay-at-home orders, Kelly makes waves among the ladies when she jet-sets around the country visiting New York City, the Hamptons and Miami.

As the election looms, Kelly's political beliefs and tone-deaf jokes threaten her relationships with the women.

After a difficult year, Gina is happier than ever as she moves into her new townhome with her boyfriend Travis and their combined six children.

Tensions with the ladies arise when she hears that some of the women are criticizing her new home.

Trying her best to co-parent, Gina celebrates her daughter's birthday and invites her ex-husband and his new girlfriend.

Meanwhile, she is faced to make a tough decision regarding her ex-husband that could change the dynamic of her family.

With the coronavirus shutting down schools, Gina faces new challenges as she struggles to home-school the kids while facing criticism for not joining the ladies for a "quarantine happy hour."

With a new hip and outlook on life, Emily experiences a rebirth in her marriage with Shane. She even lets "fun Emily" out and finds an unexpected ally in the group.

When she is presented with an opportunity to design a bathing suit, she dives headfirst to pursue her true passion.

While in quarantine, Emily and Shane really lean on each other when times get tough, ultimately testing the true strength of their marriage.

2020 is a year of renewal for Braunwyn as she moves into a new 8000 square foot home in Newport, celebrates 20 years of marriage to her husband Sean and embarks on a new journey of her own.

During the lockdown, Braunwyn settles into parenting seven children without the help of her nannies and housekeepers.

From supporting her son Jacob's desire to dress in drag to addressing the children's anxieties, Braunwyn has her hands full as she strives to give each child individual attention.

As she opens up to the women about her past, she finds a common bond with new housewife Elizabeth, yet struggles to see eye to eye with some of the other ladies over her participation in local protests and her political views.

And when the ladies learn that Braunwyn's friend Shari has moved in, they begin to question her choices.

Elizabeth is welcomed to the group through Kelly who she has known for a few years from the Newport party circuit.

Born and raised in Missouri, Elizabeth always dreamed of living a life of luxury on the beaches of Orange County and with the help of her soon to be ex-husband, her dream has become a reality.

Currently a CEO of an online music company, Elizabeth is ambitious, outspoken and ready to have fun.

As she deals with her ongoing divorce, her lifestyle as well as her complex and sexless relationship with boyfriend Jimmy creates a lot of speculation from the women and they start to scrutinise who she is really is.

In the Season 15 premiere, Chef Gordon Ramsay welcomes the newest bunch of contestants into the kitchen.

The steaks are high when the contestants travel to Las Vegas and see the kitchen where this season's winner will work as a Head Chef: BLT Steak at Bally's Las Vegas.

And, for the first time in Hell's Kitchen history, they will compete in that kitchen for the signature dish team challenge.

The winning team will earn a ride on the High Roller - the world's tallest Ferris wheel - and VIP service at Drai's Nightclub while the losing team prepares a Vegas buffet service, which includes peeling 50 lbs. of shrimp and 1,000 lbs. of potatoes.

Later during their first dinner service, one of the teams will fail early on in the service, prompting Chef Ramsay to kick them out of the kitchen.
