About this challenge

If you're anything like us, you base your own entertainment choices on recommendations from people you trust. Sometimes that means turning to an outlet like our partner Decider for those recommendations, but for this Challenge, we're hoping you'll help out one another.

Share the perfect formula to help viewers like you decide what to watch next by taking a show or movie that most people know and love, and making your recommendations for fellow fans from there. If your favorite movie is Goodfellas, then the show you should check out is definitely Peaky Blinders. If you can't get enough of Pride and Prejudice, then Bridgerton is the show for you. If you love the original Dune, add Snowpiercer to your watch list. Enter the If This, Then That Challenge by sharing your own recommendations based on the shows and movies you love, and give guidance to help others discover their new favorites.

Judges

Lea Palmieri is a host, writer, producer, and the current Director of Creative Strategy at Decider, and she sure does love a good story — especially a good love story.

Glenn Kenny is an American film critic and journalist. He is a regular contributor for Decider, as well as the author of "Made Men: The Story of 'Goodfellas'."
