You've likely been watching a ton of television under quarantine. But if you've just finished binging your favorite shows, we've got some related recommendations (thanks, CBS All Access!). So whether you're into action, romance, reality, or adventure, the streaming service is sure to have your next great obsession.

If You Liked Beauty And The Beast…

You'll love Tell Me A Story.

Once upon a time, there lived a beauty and a beast in an enchanted land. Only in CBS' 1987 fantasy-romance, the "beauty" was assistant district attorney Catherine (Linda Hamilton), the noble "man-beast" was feline-faced Vincent (Ron Perlman, rocking an '80s hair-metal mane), and the "enchanted land" was Manhattan.

Just like Beauty and the Beast, Tell Me A Story reimagines beloved fairy tales as dark and twisted psychological thrillers. The 10-episode second season of this serialized drama spins the stories of Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella into a tale like no other. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season reimagines The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.

So if you've blown through all three seasons of Beauty and the Beast, check out this modern-day retelling.

Stream all episodes of Tell Me A Story on CBS All Access. Season 1 also airs now on The CW.

If You Liked The Amazing Race…

You'll love Blood & Treasure.

If you're a fan of the Phil Keoghan–hosted reality competition, then you know the gist: Teams of two race around the world for a shot at a million dollars.

While you wait for Season 32 of The Amazing Race to kick off this fall, why not give another globe-trotting adventure a gander? Like TAR, Blood & Treasure boasts exotic locales and nail-biting suspense, centered on the dynamic duo of a brilliant antiquities expert (Matt Barr) and a cunning art thief (Sofia Pernas).

Blood & Treasure streams on CBS All Access.

If You Liked The Good Wife…

Audra McDonald as Liz Reddick and Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart in The Good Fight

You'll love The Good Fight.

In a way, The Good Wife was about starting over: Alicia Florrick (Emmy winner Julianna Marguiles) returned to law after a very public sex-and-corruption scandal involving her politician husband.

And so is its spinoff, The Good Fight. After an enormous financial scam wipes out her savings, Diane Lockhart (the inimitable Christine Baranski) is forced to move to a new firm, where she joins forces with former employee Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo). The two legal dramas share the same DNA: Both were created by husband-and-wife team Robert and Michelle King, and feature pitch-perfect writing, directing, acting—and fashion!

The Good Fight streams exclusively on CBS All Access.

If You Liked Elementary…

Lucy Liu as Simone

You'll love Why Women Kill.

Technically, these two shows couldn't be any more different: Elementary reinvented the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective stories as a New York City–set procedural drama, while Why Women Kill is a time-hopping (and bed-hopping) soap. But both tap into the wide-ranging talent of Lucy Liu—as the gender-swapped no-nonsense Watson in the former, and as '80s socialite Simone in the latter.

Why Women Kill streams exclusively on CBS All Access.

If You Liked Survivor: Winners At War…

The 16 returning houseguests of Big Brother All Stars

You'll love Big Brother: All-Stars.

Like Survivor, Big Brother is also celebrating its 20th anniversary—and what better way to mark the milestone than with another all-stars edition!

Survivor: Winners At War united the most memorable, heroic, and celebrated champs from the past two decades. The gameplay on an all-star season is just next-level. So if you're into epic comps, shocking blindsides, and a masterclass in strategy, you won't want to miss the champs, the runners-up, and the best to never win the game battling for glory in the BB house.

This week, watch all-new episodes of Big Brother: All-Stars on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access. Plus, drop in on the Houseguests 24/7 with the BB Live Feeds—exclusively available on CBS All Access.

Jeff & Jordan

Fans followed their budding relationship in real-time: from platonic allies to flirtatious friends to a full-blown couple. In 2014, Jeff proposed to Jordan where it all began—inside the Big Brother house.

Cody & Jessica

The marine and the model fogged up live-feed cameras with their steamy makeout seshes. And although the rest of the houseguests targeted them for eviction from the jump, "Jody" got the last laugh on The Amazing Race 30, winning the million-dollar prize.

Swaggy C & Bayleigh

Swaggy C came into the BB20 house with one goal in mind: to win half a million dollars. And then he saw "the most gorgeous woman in the house" and all bets were off! Swaggy and Bayleigh only spent 23 days together—first kissed on Day 6—and 76 days apart. But during the live finale, Swag got down on one knee and proposed to his bae in front of millions. Swayleigh are now hitched—and Swaggy is currently rooting for his wife competing on Big Brother: All-Stars.

Brendon & Rachel

Whether you found them endearing—or enduringly grating—the polarizing couple collectively known as "Brenchel" defied the odds. After Rachel gave birth to their first baby, Brendon gushed: "I have raced around the world and survived the Big Brother house [with her], but watching my wife deliver our girl made me fall in love all over."

Victor & Nicole

Victor and Nicole met on BB18—only she was in a showmance with another houseguest, Corey. After Nicole won that season—becoming the first woman to beat a guy in the final 2—the two remained in touch as friends, which developed into something more!

The pair returned during BB20, where Victor popped the question during a surprise proposal in front of past BB alums like Derrick Levasseur, Britney Haynes, and Dani Donato. Just like Jody, they also competed on The Amazing Race (finishing 4th). This year is shaping up to be a big one: Nicole is back in the BB house, aiming to be the first two-time winner, and they're getting married this December!

Dominic & Dani

Season 8 runner-up Dani Donato returned for BB13. And while she didn't make it to finale night this time around, she walked away from the house with an even better prize: her soulmate. Dani and Dominic met in the Big Brother house and continued their relationship on the outside. They got married in 2013, and five years later welcome their beautiful BB baby, Autumn Tennessee. The meaning behind her name: it was a "beautiful Autumn evening in Tennessee" when Dom and Dani fell in love. Awwwww!

By Nate Millado

Well, that was unexpected! For the first time ever, Big Brother introduced the Houseguests competing for a half-million-dollar prize during a live move-in event. To mark the 20th anniversary of summer's guiltiest pleasure, BB22 is an all-star affair, with a cast comprising past winners, runners-up, memorable personalities, and some of the best to never win the game. They all have one thing in common: something to prove. Host Julie Chen Moonves—aka The Chenbot—welcomed mask-wearing competitors into the studio in pods of four, chatting with them from a safe 12-foot distance. Meet the 16 returning players vying for another shot at $500K—and BB glory!

Bayleigh Dayton had a showmance with fellow houseguest Swaggy C, and they're now married! ("It's like we have better success than The Bachelor," quipped Chen during the premiere.) Backdoored during Season 20, Bayleigh says she is "ready to play." Her strategy this time is to align with a strong competitor and play the social game. "Be lovable, but nonthreatening."

Christmas Abbott

Occupation: Fitness entrepreneur

Christmas Abbott came into Season 19 with guns blazing—until she broke her foot during the first week in the house. She had surgery and remained in the game, but ultimately placed third. Other than nixing any potential piggyback rides, Christmas' strategy, she says, is to be herself: "I will listen, watch carefully, and know who to trust, and I will take that big shot when I get a chance!"

Cody Calafiore

Age: 29
Previous BB Season: 16
Hometown: Howell, N.J.
Current City: Howell, N.J.
Occupation: Soccer coach

In his first BB appearance, Cody Calafiore finished second to ally Derrick Levasseur. So does the Hitman have what it takes to win it all? It won't be easy. "The most difficult aspect this time around will be playing the game with people that have already watched me and know exactly who I am," he admits. But if it ain't broke, don't fix it: Cody plans to stick to his Season 16 strategy. "I want to be friendly and honest so people feel comfortable opening up to me. I will find one person in the house that I will go through information and stories with, to cross-check if people are lying. I don't want to be too close to my closest ally, because I do not want people using our names in the same sentence. I want to win as many competitions as I can to keep myself and my closest allies safe."

Dani Briones

Current City: Orange County, Calif.
Occupation: Stay-at-home mom

During Season 8, Dani Briones and her estranged dad, Evel Dick, beat the odds (and 12 other Houseguests) to make it to finale night—but Dani fell short of the win. She returned for Season 13 and while she didn't take home the money, she ended up with something even better: her future husband, Dominic, whom she met in the BB house. Dani intends to lie low for the first half…"and then turn the house upside down."

David Alexander

Previous BB Season: 21
Hometown: Atlanta
Current City: Los Angeles
Occupation: Senior sales rep

David Alexander played a solid social game during his short stay in the house in Season 21. But thanks to a surprise opening-night twist—this is Big Brother, after all—his game was cut short. David is looking to lay low as a "non-threat," but is also looking forward to finally "competing in an HoH, to actually voting, and just playing this very interesting social game."

Da'Vonne Rogers

Previous BB Seasons: 17 and 18
Hometown: Inglewood, Calif.
Current City: Inglewood, Calif.
Occupation: Acting coach

Is third time the charm? Da'Vonne Rogers has played Big Brother twice now—and lost twice. So now she's ripping up the playbook and coming into All-Stars with no preconceived strategy. Da'Vonne can lean on her intuition, though: She was the first Houseguest to figure out the twin twist in Season 17. "I genuinely love this game," she says. "It's hard as hell and it will drive you crazy, but it's so much fun to play. When I was evicted during Season 18, I told Julie that I'd play this game again and again and again, and I meant that."

Enzo Palumbo

Hometown: Bayonne, N.J.
Current City: Bayonne, N.J.
Occupation: Insurance adjuster

Enzo Palumbo was the founding member of The Brigade, one of the most famous and successful alliances in Big Brother history that helped him get to the final 3. Although he didn't win, he found the game almost too easy—so "The Meow-Meow" is looking to be challenged this time around. "I want to play to seal my legacy," he says, "not only as being part of one of the best alliances, but now one of the greatest to ever play!"

Ian Terry

Previous BB Season: 14
Hometown: Pittsburgh
Current City: Houston
Occupation: Management consultant

The student became the teacher as Ian Terry bested his mentor, BB legend Dan Gheesling, to win Season 14. But being one of only two winners in the BB22 cast (the other is Nicole Franzel) paints a target on his back. Ian wants to up his social game a bit "just to make sure I don't get frozen out for being unpopular," he says. "Following that, hibernate. Toward the end of the game, I will ramp up and utilize my competition ability and take advantage of the game's structure."

Janelle Pierzina

Hometown: Grand Rapids, Minn.
Current City: Minneapolis
Occupation: Real estate agent

The blonde beauty is a comp beast—setting the single-season record for most individual competitions won with nine (four HoHs and five PoVs). Janelle Pierzina cemented her place as a BB legend by finishing third two seasons in a row and winning the first America's Favorite Houseguest in Season 6. Now that she's older and wiser, what will Janelle do to secure victory? "I have never played a cutthroat game," she says. "This time around, I will." Three words: Bye, bye bitches!

Kaysar Ridha

Current City: Irvine, Calif.
Occupation: Biotech executive

How much does America love Kaysar Ridha?In Season 6, he was the first Houseguest voted back into the game by the viewers. Along with his Sovereign Six ally Janelle, this is his second Big Brother: All-Stars season. He's never made Jury, which he finds "embarrassing." So Kaysar is hoping to model his winning strategy after Season 16 champ Derrick Levasseur. "He played a very respectable game," Kaysar says. "He was controlled and had the ability to tap into what motivated others in order to help himself. Often without them even knowing."

Keesha Smith

Hometown: Sterling, Ohio

Occupation: Waitress

Best known for her tragic birthday inside the BB house, fourth-place finisher Keesha Smith was voted America's Favorite Houseguest in Season 10. "Last time I was on the show, I was caught up in a drama fest," she says. This time she's keeping a low profile!

Hometown: San Diego
Current City: San Diego
Occupation: Ad agency executive

In BB11, Kevin Campbell was the first Houseguest to be evicted on finale night, placing third—which haunts him to this day. "I feel like this time it's going to be like a pack of hyenas going after a meal, so it will not be cute," he says. "I plan on playing every competition like it's my last, taking every opportunity to snatch my crown." With the prize money, Kevin and his husband hope to expand their family.

Hometown: Collierville, Tenn.
Current City: Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Occupation: Restaurateur

Runner-up to BB legend Dan Gheesling, Memphis Garrett was part of one of the most famous duos in Big Brother history, The Renegades. Last time, he was playing checkers; now he's playing chess. His strategy is stay cool and collected, silent but deadly. "The idea this time around is to play the same social game but focus on jury management and always be in control of my game." Also: "Win the PoV every time."

Occupation: Podcast host

"I want vindication!" Nicole Anthony says. "Last time, Michie got my confetti, and this time it is mine." Last year, Nicole placed third and was voted America's Favorite Houseguest. But she really wants the title of Big Brother winner and says the prize money would really change her life—i.e., allow her to move out of her parents' house.

Nicole Franzel

Occupation: Social media influencer

Nicole Franzel won Season 18 and was the first woman to beat a guy in the final two—poor Paul Abrahamian also finished second in Season 19. And yet some fans still question her victory. She's here to become the first two-time champ of Big Brother. "I'm not afraid to own my moves anymore," she says. "Before, I was afraid to lie and play the game openly. This time I'm playing loud and proud." Fun fact: Nicole is engaged to her fellow Season 18 Houseguest Victor Arroyo.

Tyler Crispen

Tyler Crispen finished second in Season 20—"I wrote too many checks I couldn't cash," he said on premiere night—but he did walk away with America's Favorite Houseguest and a new girlfriend, Angela Rummans, whom he met in the house (hey, Tangela!). "I can't make everyone think I'm just a dumb surfer dude this time around," he says. "I just need to try not to screw it up this time!"

Back in July 5, 2000, CBS premiered a unique reality competition that isolated players inside a makeshift house rigged with cameras and mics so that we could watch their every move 24/7 on live feeds. (Yep, it was the original quarantine, decades before sheltering-in-place became our reality.)

Julie Chen introducing season 20 of Big Brother

The host Big Brother fans affectionately call "The Chenbot."

It was called Big Brother, and we've been coming to "expect the unexpected" ever since. So in honor of BB's 20th anniversary—and the highly anticipated Big Brother: All-Stars Edition, kicking off Aug. 5—we're rounding up 20 of the best blindsides, twists, comps, quotes, and other milestones from summer's guiltiest pleasure!

Don't miss the season premiere of Big Brother on Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access—featuring the first-ever live cast reveal during the live move-in event!

Dan’s Funeral (Season 14)

Dan was "dead" in the game until he hatched a plan in solitary confinement. Consider it the football coach's Hail Mary: Clad in all black, Dan presided over his own "Big Brother funeral" and thanked each of the remaining Houseguests—except loyal ally Danielle. The play worked, and Dan not only survived elimination but also made it to final two.

Project DNA (Season 5)

Adria and Natalie contestants on season 5 of Big Brother

Adria and Natalie were part of BB5's summer twist: Project DNA.

CBS.com

Sure, we expect the unexpected...but no one was expecting this season's crazy twist. Not only were Cowboy and Nakomis, two of the Houseguests, secretly half-siblings (unbeknownst to them!), but then a pair of twins kept swapping places—unbeknownst to the rest of the house!

Jeff Uses The Coup D’État (Season 11)

America granted Jeff a secret power that enabled him to overthrow current HoH Chima and change up her nominations right before the live vote. After Jordan picked her jaw off the floor, Jeff replaced Russell and Lydia with Chima's allies, Natalie and Jessie. The game-changing move sent Jessie packing—and Chima spiraling, until she broke several house rules and was kicked out herself.

Kaysar’s Revolving Door (Season 6)

Kaysar returns on season 6 of Big Brother

The Sovereign Six alliance lost Kaysar (twice!) on BB6.

CBS.com

Nice guys finish 10th: Kaysar was so popular with America that fans voted him back into the house on Day 40. But after throwing HoH to Jennifer during a grueling endurance comp, she betrayed him and put him back on the block. He was voted out unanimously a week later.

“Bye Bye, Bitches!” (Season 6)

Janelle on season 6 of Big Brother

Payback is a bitch! Janelle nominates Maggie and Jennifer on BB6.

CBS.com

This is Big Brother, so naturally the pendulum of power eventually swings the other way. When Kaysar's closest ally, Janelle, won HoH, she immediately nominated Maggie and Jennifer in retribution. As the credits rolled and we eavesdropped on the Houseguests, Janelle delivered her now infamous line to the ladies on the block.

Evel Dick And Daniele Make The Final Two (Season 8)

You know what they say—"expect the unexpected," and Daniele was definitely not expecting to see her estranged dad also competing in the BB house. There were tears, laughs, even some fence-mending. But at the end of a roller-coaster season, Dick and Daniele beat the odds—and 12 other Houseguests—to make it to the final two, where Evel Dick edged out his daughter for the 500G's.

Danielle And Jason’s Secret Alliance (Season 3)

Big Brother 3 contestant Danielle

Danielle from Big Brother 3—one of the best players never to win.

media.giphy.com

Sure, there have been other successful duos (one word: Chilltown), but Danielle and Jason land on this list because even though they couldn't have been more different, they were a formidable pair. The fact that they kept their alliance under the radar and both made final three is impressive.

Not-So-Happy Taco Tuesday (Season 21)

Christie had one foot out the door until she decided to spice things up during Taco Tuesday. By accusing Nick of forging deals with everyone in the house, she blew up his game—and saved her own. It was a master class in vote-flipping.

Frankie Wins Battle Of The Block (Season 16)

Everyone wanted Frankie Grande (yes, Ariana's brother) out of the house. So when HoH Nicole nominated him and Caleb—who agreed to throw the comp—Frankie was on his own. While Donny and Zach worked as a team to complete the football-themed challenge, Frankie managed to beat them solo, shocking everyone—including himself!

Jeff Proposes To Jordan (Season 16)

Their show-mance blossomed into a full-blown romance, and since Jeff and Jordan met inside the BB house on Season 11, it seemed only fitting that they would get engaged there. Jordan thought they were there to host a comp, but instead Jeff got down on one knee and flashed a ring. "Is this a joke?" Jordan asked incredulously.

Nakomis Invents The Backdoor (Season 5)

Nakomis on season 5 of Big Brother

Just about every HoH has used the "backdoor" since Nakomis invented it in BB5.

CBS.com

Hard to believe there was ever a time in BB when the backdoor didn't exist, but the strategy actually didn't come into play until self-proclaimed "mastermind" Nakomis came up with it. Originally called "The Six-Finger Plan," it prevented the HoH's actual target from playing in the Veto comp by instead nominating two "decoys," or pawns. Jase didn't know what hit him until it was too late!

“Anybody Want Cake?” (Season 10)

Keesha on Big Brother 10

Keesha celebrated the worst birthday inside the BB house during Big Brother 10.

media.giphy.com

After a big house blowup simmered down, everyone gathered around to sing Keesha the saddest "Happy birthday" ever! Following an awkward silence, Libra asked: "Anybody want cake?"

Zingbot’s First Appearance (Season 12)

Screengrab/CBS ©2016 CBS Broadcasting Inc.

Longtime Big Brother fans-turned-Houseguests usually want to make it far enough in the game to (A) make the jury and (B) get roasted by Zingbot. It's become a badge of honor, frankly! Some of our faves: "Porsche, shouldn't you be named after a car with a roomier trunk?" "Ian, for a chemical engineering student, it's amazing how little chemistry you have with the ladies." "I think there's a ghost in the Big Brother house. It has a high-pitched wail, it's pasty white, and it loves to float. Oh wait, that's just Andy." Zing!

Dr. Will’s Epic Veto Speech (Season 7 All-Stars)

Will Kirby and Mike Boogie Malin on Big Brother 7

"Chilltown" founding members Will Kirby and Mike "Boogie" Malin.

media.giphy.com

Coming into Big Brother: All-Stars as a previous winner, Will already had a huge target painted on his back. But when facing elimination, the Puppetmaster pulled more strings: He told everyone in the house he hated them and promised to throw every competition if they kept him in the house. And they did!

Omarosa Spills White House Tea (Celebrity BB)

All eyes and ears were on Omarosa when the bonafide BB fan competed in the first-ever celebrity edition. That's because the reality TV vet was just two months removed from her stint in the Trump administration. When Ross asked Omarosa why she would even consider working for the president, she told him through tears that she thought she was answering "a call of duty" but confessed that it was baaaaaaad and "we are not going to be okay."

“Floaters, You Better Grab Your Life Vest!” (Season 13)

Love her or hate her, Rachel delivered one of the most iconic lines in BB history when, after winning HoH, she threatened any Houseguest who wasn't playing hard enough or was flying too far under the radar. Shots fired!

America’s Player Blindsides Dustin (Season 8)

Houseguest Eric aka Americas Player on Big Brother season 8

America's Player Eric on Big Brother 8.

CBS.com

No. 1 rule in the Big Brother house: Never offer to be a pawn, because pawns go home! Dustin learned this lesson the hard way. Evel Dick was as good as gone, but fans had other plans. America's Player Eric was rewarded $10K for every five tasks completed—including letting us cast his votes to evict.

Victor Wins The Battle Back (Season 18)

Five evicted Houseguests had a chance to battle their way back into the BB house, but it wasn't easy: Each battle tested the players' physical strength, brain power, and overall strategic gameplay. After five grueling rounds, Victor emerged the winner of this unprecedented comp, shocking the house when he reentered the front doors.

Morgan Wins BB: Over The Top (All Access)

Winner Morgan on Big Brother Over the Top

Morgan won the first-ever All Access season of Big Brother.

media.giphy.com

It was the first (and, so far, only) BB season that aired exclusively on CBS All Access. And not since the first season of Big Brother did we wield so much power: America, not a jury of evicted Houseguests, crowned the winner. An all-female alliance rarely lasts in the BB house, but The Ballsmashers dominated the game. And Morgan—one half of an early season twist where she secretly competed with her sister—edged out fan favorite Jason.

Julie’s Big Reveal (Season 11)

The host we've all lovingly come to know as The Chenbot uttered her iconic line—with a twist—to kick off BB11: "Whether you're expecting the unexpected or," looking down at her baby bump, "just expecting, get ready because another crazy summer is about to begin!"
