Yes, you drank too much last night, but unlike your waitress at Denny’s, you don’t have to work today! Be grateful.
And look who’s finally come to Netflix for the first day of 2015, it’s the entire Friends series! Who’s up for some more binging?
Another TV classic that’s rather new to your queue–Roseanne, is available as well.
Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats
I personally suggest curling up with Gatorade, some vitamin-B complex, and some of the greats on Netflix. One of the Greats Whatever.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress, girlfriend of Jordan Peele, and writer for Parks & Rec (all great qualities), Chelsea Perettii, debuted her Netflix original standup special a few weeks ago; it’s funny, original, and filled with dogs–a perfect mindless treat for your worthless New Year’s Day head.
New to Netflix this December is the Aaron Eckhart… horror thriller? What to call this movie… How about a heaping pile of I, Excrement? I valiantly attempted to watch this film, lauded as one of the worst of 2014 because sometimes really bad can be really good–not in this case. If you manage to sit through this one you’re a stronger person than I, Brennan.
Seriously, why a comma?
The Honourable Woman
It’s been getting a lot of buzz lately despite the fact that nooooooo one has seen it (BBC Two?!), but the eight-part political thriller miniseries starring a Gyllenhaal is on Netflix now if you’re feeling ambitious.
Other recommendations (mostly horror..):
“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” — surprisingly better than the last few hundred Paranormal Activities (and with less inexplicably wealthy white people!)
“Dark Skies” — classic family house horror with a somewhat good twist starring Keri Russell
“At the Devil’s Door” — much lauded and maligned horror flick from IFC that I rather enjoyed for its originality and some camp value. Also, Naya Rivera from Glee!!
“Nick Offerman: American Ham” — Nick Offerman. Enough said.
“Oculus” — take a #selfie in this haunted mirror
“American Horror Story: Coven” — this cast+witches=yes… at least for a few episodes
“Labor Day” — don’t watch this movie
“To Be Takei” — do watch this movie
If you don’t like any of my suggestions, remember, there’s always football. Quit your whining.
Also new to Netflix is 1997’s Batman and Robin, in case you’d like to reminisce on the bad old days.
