Hey South Florida, looks like a wet and rainy weekend for most of us. Even though the view outside your window isn’t exactly postcard perfect, you can still make the most of your well deserved time off.
Binge watching has quickly become an art form. It’s so much more than just a way to procrastinate about the mundane chores of daily life. Only a few short years ago, the idea of catching up on your favorite series was not possible. Watching entire seasons of shows was unfathomable. But then, Netflix.
Yes, there are other services like Apple T.V., Hulu, OnDemand, Amazon Fire, etc, but with more than 100 million subscribers, Netflix is the undisputed leader of the binge-watching pack.
No matter which provider you use, we hope your weekend is filled with uninterrupted entertainment euphoria.
Here a few suggestions for this (or any) weekend:
