There's nothing better than spending a lazy Saturday sleeping in, indulging in a pancake breakfast, sipping coffee on the couch and staying in your pj's till at least noon. But what tips it over the edge is combining that easy-morning-feeling with some PBS SoCal streaming!

This is the story of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's 501st attempt to save an orphan otter. From her discovery as a stranded newborn pup crying on the beach through her rehabilitation at the Aquarium, follow as Otter 501 learns how to dive, hunt, eat, and fend for herself in the wild, where survival is a long shot at best. Top Tip: This is a great one to watch with the kids, but be warned, you may want a pet otter after viewing!
As the season finale is this Sunday at 9 p.m., we thought it prudent to suggest getting caught up on the latest episode of the season. As you'll see, episode 5 ends on a very dramatic note, leaving us in high anticipation for the finale tomorrow! Top Tip: If you need some backstory on Sidney's "issues," watch this short clip on his search for a soulmate before diving into the full episode.
This older episode combines two visits the late music icon Prince made to the Tavis Smiley show, and includes an acoustic performance with his former bandmate Wendy Melvoin. The episode gives a rare look into the musician's personal life as he opens up on his childhood, family and the music industry.
If you're itching to escape to the wilderness, but would rather not leave the comfort of our couch, indulge in this 6-part documentary from filmmaker Ken Burns on our National Parks. Top Tip: If you don't have an extra 10 hours to spare, we suggest episode 2 -The Last Refugee (1890-1915.)
