Ah, the joys of watching a weekend flow slowly by as you and a loved one (or you and your cat) lounge gleefully on the couch engrossed in a new set of onscreen adventures. It’s so much better than actually going out and doing stuff, right? Why would you leave your house when the entire spectrum of human emotion is there for you to sample and digest, all from the comfort of your stretchy pants? There’s no better ally in this righteous crusade than Netflix, the couch potato’s spirit animal. As the streaming service gains popularity — and income — though, the sheer number of options has become daunting. Not to worry, though, we’ve waded through the options and, as always, we’ve provided some recommendations for you. If you’re looking for a new show to wile away the hours, we’ve got you covered!
15. Friday Night Lights
For five awesome seasons (give or take one or two), Friday Night Lights brought home high-minded drama in a wonderfully soapy small town Texas setting. Anchored by an awesome Kyle Chandler, a glassy-eyed Connie Britton, and slew of young talent that you now recognize, this critically praised drama captured all the excitement of a good sports movie and laced it with quality drama that belied its mediocre ratings. If you missed it before, catch it now.
