It's going to rain on and off for the next few days, and spans of weather like this are (unfortunately) a regular part of late spring/early summer in WNY. For days like this, I find a blanket and a good Netlfix queue are the solution.

I've either finished/in-progress/anticipate watching everything on this list. So far, I'm hitting homeruns with this (and since this is a Netflix only list, Hulu users -- feel free to add The Handmaids Tale to this list too, so worth it).

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    This Tiny Fey written & produced comedy combines all of the fun of the Fey-era SNL and 30 Rock (it also combines many of those shows' former cast members). Season 3 proves this series gets better with every year. There's one great Buffalo Bills punchline that (most) Bills fans can appreciate.

    If you liked Making a Murderer, The Keepers will be a good bet for you to binge on. Covering the cold case of a murder of a young nun in 1969 Baltimore, this documentary series touches on sex abuse and cover-ups in the Catholic church.

    House of Cards

    Season 5, now available.

    After more than a year's wait, the 5th season of House of Cards is here. I need to add Season 4 onto my watchlist first though, as I -um- lost my Netflix password for a while, and haven't had the time to invest in the lengthy binge-watch blocks of time that HOC requires.

    Orange Is The New Black

    Season 5; available June 9

    Netflix's women's prison drama is back for a 5th season this week, after crushing our collective souls with some painful character um...eliminations (hey, no spoilers for those of you behind like I am with HOC!). Can't wait to see what's next, and please no one call me this weekend.
