10 Scary Netflix Shows I Need to Binge Right Now

Halloween is easily one of my favorite holidays of the year. No offense, Arbor Day. Now I'm not one to love horror movies. I actually don't really even like them. I am, however, slowly changing my tune over time. Sure I can enjoy a good Nightmare on Elm Street flick but it's the supernatural dream stuff that intrigues me, not the blood, gore and scares. I do love a good horror comedy (horredy?) like the Evil Dead series and even Scream. But straight-up slasher or torture films don't do it for me one bit. These days, though, my 12-year-old son Ryan is really interested in seeing some horror movies. So I'm probably going ...

Leave it to Netflix to Come Up with Birthdays On-Demand

I am so spoiled with Movies On-Demand these days, that I pretty much expect instant access to any movie or TV show ever made at any point. It's just crazy convenient. But have you ever thought about Birthdays On-Demand? Yeah, as a parent, I can most definitely appreciate anything that will help make birthdays for my kids that much easier and more special for them. I remember birthday parties when I was a kid. I didn't go to the movies, take everyone bowling or even have a pool party. Nope. What we did was just have a lot of fun around my house. Mom would create a ton of games for us ...

Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I'm first in line. And when Netflix's amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I'm screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be honest, they kind of are. I've never been a diehard Defenders fan but always dug them when they showed up in other comics. The Avengers were the A-List team, headquartered in NYC and fighting Earth-shattering foes. The ...

Netflix Wrestles With Hair Spray and Thigh-High Boots in the Hilarious Series GLOW

I grew up with Hulk Hogan, Sgt. Slaughter and Rowdy Roddy Piper. I loved the WWF (that's what it was called back in the day) and probably laughed as much as I cheered while watching every single match. Women were always present on the WWF but mainly as managers or girlfriends, never as wrestlers themselves. That is until some crazy new show worked its way onto television in the mid 1980s. It was called GLOW and it starred the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. I don't remember a single character's name, I just remember being absolutely mesmerized by this show. It was wrestling, which is a pure adrenaline rush for any teenager. It ...

Win a 6-Month Subscription to Netflix by Sneaking Around

Sneaking? Sneaking? Every time I hear that word, I immediately think of poor crazy Gollum from Lord of the Rings, after Samwise Gamgee accuses the creepy character of doing just that. But not all sneaking is full of Hobbit-murdering thoughts! Some sneaking is good. In fact, sneaking has become the new binging, in case you haven't heard! Yes, I'm talking about Netflix, which is overflowing with so many great original shows right now that I need a vacation just to catch up! The data geniuses at Netflix have been real busy of late working on #MomSneak. This latest campaign reveals that some 97% of moms say they more time for themselves before ...

The X-Files of the Wild West, Supernatural Has Possessed Me

The Dukes of Hazzard had its General Lee. Knight Rider, its talking car K.I.T.T. And while it doesn't leap impossible chasms or talk to its owners, the black '67 Impala on Supernatural is every bit a main character as brothers Sam and Dean Winchester. My wife recently started watching Supernatural while exercising, and I jumped in just as she began unearthing season two. A quick rundown of the storyline and I was sucked right in. Like a modern day western, Sam and Dean blow into town on their trusty horse (a.k.a. the intimidating black '67 Chevy Impala), hunt down the bad guys, kiss the girl and drive off into the sunset. But obviously, there's ...
