Netflix Binge The Cold Weather Away​


As Chicago continues its bipolar weather season, rarely do we know if outside will be habitable from weekend to weekend. Luckily for you, I’m here to break down all the amazing things you can be watching should you not want to go out into freezing cold. Who needs bars and parties when you have Netflix or Hulu? Am I right? 

For those interested in some good Sci-Fi comedy, Future Man on Hulu is a great half hour comedy that has an amazing spin on the whole-time travel gimmick and manages to have an entire cast full of likable characters, entertaining situations, and just generally strange comedy in a breath of fresh air. Not all science fiction or action shows need to be super serious or too campy. Future Man is able to find the right balance and so far, has two incredible seasons you can binge watch right now!

For those who have Netflix, there are numerous movies and shows I can suggest to you. Funny enough, both Hulu and Netflix are two different documentaries on the chaotic train wreck that was Fyre Festival. Despite both films being about the same festival, each is somehow completely different due to having different footage, different people interviewed, and both are just as equally entertaining. 

Also, Netflix recently premiered the new show The Umbrella Academy which is based off the graphic novel of the same name. I’ve only watched the first one so far, but from what I know and have heard it’s a delight for fans of comic books, mystery, action, and family drama. Definitely some things to look out for when you’re snowed in or don’t want frostbite!
