10 Underrated Netflix Movies And Shows To Binge Watch During The Cold Weather

10 Underrated Netflix Movies And Shows To Binge Watch During The Cold Weather

What’s the best way to spend an afternoon in your house during a cold day? Make hot chocolate? Read a book? Build a blanket fort?

While all of those are viable options, the best way to spend your day during the cold is to binge watch as many Netflix shows and movies as you can. There are so many great shows and movies on Netflix, but let’s be honest—you’ve already seen Breaking Bad, Dexter has a terrible ending, and Narcos is based on a true story, so you already know how it’s going to end.

Here are 10 underrated Netflix movies and shows to binge watch when it’s cold outside.

1. Frank

Have you ever wanted to watch a movie about a music icon who wears a giant, plastic head for the entire film? Now you can!

But seriously, Frank is a fantastic independent film everyone should watch. Michael Fassbender is phenomenal in the role of Frank, an eccentric and deranged band leader who is driven by his creativity.

2. Comedy Bang! Bang!

If you’re a fan of anti-humor, Comedy Bang! Bang! is the show for you.

Comedian and writer Scott Aukerman transformed his successful Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast into a hit show for IFC, and it’s currently getting ready to enter its fifth season. The show sees Aukerman hosting a satirical talk show that makes you realize some of the flaws in today’s late-night format. Each show features a celebrity guest and a comedian who plays some absurd character.

3. Wilfred

Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking? Wilfred is a show about a man named Ryan and a talking dog that only Ryan can understand. To Ryan, the dog is, of course, a man in a dog suit, and he doesn’t know why no one else can understand him. The show has gotten great reviews, and you should definitely binge watch your way into this bizarre world.

4. Exit Through the Gift Shop

I’m sure you’ve heard the name Banksy before. The legendary street artist has displayed his work all around the world, but no one knows who he is.

Exit Through the Gift Shop is a fascinating documentary about the world of street art. It even includes an interview with Banksy and a look at some of his recent work. You also get to experience the journey that the filmmaker, “Mr. Brainwash,” takes into this world.

5. Legit

Crude, politically incorrect, and painfully honest comedian Jim Jeffries writes and produces the show Legit, which is based on his life and stand-up act. Those of you who are familiar with Jeffries’ stand-up know he often pushes the boundaries of today’s social issues, and his hilarious show does exactly the same thing. Much like Louie and Maron, Legit follows the life of a comedian and will have you laughing hysterically.

6. Firefly

Firefly is one of Joss Whedon’s earlier works that follows a group of space cowboys who do sometimes illegal jobs so they can make money and keep flying. Although the show only lasted one season, it garnered a cult following from sci-fi fans around the world. Firefly is a must-see show for sci-fi fans who enjoy space travel, new planets, and gun fights.

7. Sleepwalk With Me

Comedian Mike Birbiglia’s independent film is based on one of his earlier stand-up comedy albums. Sleepwalk With Me is about Birbiglia starting his stand-up career, when he learns that he has REM behavior disorder. This means he acts out his dreams, which eventually becomes dangerous for him and his girlfriend.

8. No Country for Old Men

Unlike the other shows and movies on this list, No Country for Old Men is a slow-paced drama that uses tension and suspense to its fullest potential. The Coen brothers did a phenomenal job creating a thrilling cat-and-mouse game between a killer and a sheriff. Every shot and beat has you on the edge of your seat as you anticipate what is going to happen next.

9. The Code

This Australian thriller is about modern-day issues such as journalism, online security, and privacy. Two brothers try to solve a mystery about an accident that killed two teenagers. When they try to find more information, they are caught hacking into a database, and they quickly become involved in something much bigger than they’d originally anticipated.

10. The Killing

Adapted from a popular Danish TV Series, The Killing centers around two detectives trying to figure out a murder case. Every episode is structured as a single day of the investigation, so if you enjoy police drama and enjoy the slow unraveling of a great story, you’ll be hooked on this show. This slow burn mystery requires and rewards patience and attention.

Stay Warm and Have Fun

The great thing about Netflix is you can access it from anywhere as long as you have the right equipment. There’s a lot of excellent content on Netflix you might never have heard of. Binge watching anything is a great way to pass the time during a snowstorm. Netflix has so many options, and you can always put on Fireplace For Your Home to help you stay warm!

10 Most Entertaining Things To Do During A Long Journey

10 Most Entertaining Things To Do During A Long Journey

There are many more fun and eventful things to do to pass away time during a long flight or train journey. Apart from sleeping and continuously playing games on mobile, you can utilize this quality time in more creative ways.

Should we take a look at all those amazing and curious ways to kill time during the long journey? Let’s go.

1. Become the Next Big Thing in the Writing World

Yes!! It’s time to become an Author. When I watch a romantic movie or read some fictional story, I feel like writing something of my own. If you feel the same, then there is no better time than a long journey, especially when you are traveling alone. Don’t forget that JK Rowling got the idea of Harry Potter while she was traveling on a train.

2. Become a Philosopher

Enough of reading and listening to various thoughts and quotations of other people. We all have experienced life and learned a lot, and it’s time to put your ideas into words.

Or you can try to determine the meaning of life, what you have experienced and things you have learned from it. Remember, every success or failure and try to find the philosophical reason behind it. It will help your mind to calm down.

3. Card Games? Invent a New One

I have no issues with claiming that Card Games has always been the most preferred way to pass the time during an extended journey. But don’t stop there, you have enough time to tweak some rules, do some experiment and invent your own card game. Call it anything you want, make sure that new game is entertaining enough to attract more players.

4. Go into the Fantasy World

Most of the time I put myself into Hogwarts, next moment I am fighting for the wizard world. You can do that too, and it’s not that tough. Going into a fantasy world is the most exciting thing you can do while traveling alone.

5. Day Dream

Day Dreaming is sometimes helpful and helps your brain do some exercise. You can be at your creative best. I have found realistic solutions of toughest problems while day dreaming. You can be more open minded and understanding at this time.

Daydream about being a singer or actor or richest person in the world. It gives you the motivation to do well and achieve your goals.

6. Time to Plan your Dream Project

This one is my favorite. You get enough time to work on your plans or dream projects. Travelling is the best time to brainstorm on your next product, which can be very efficient. Think about all pros and cons, praise yourself, criticize yourself and come up with best possible solutions because no one is there to judge you or your work at this moment.

7. Movie Marathon

Not only weekends, but a long journey is also an excellent time to start a film marathon. Create a list and watch movies online. Tune into any of the popular video streaming sites or app and watch your favorite TV Series and movies.

8. Breakdown your Goals into Realistic Steps

While you are traveling, you can set realistic and possible steps to achieve your aim. Spend your time in breaking down your goals and plan to achieve each small one in a given period. You can set your daily routine, work on your work-life balance and plan for a more systematic approach in day to day life. Don’t forget that walking through small steps is the key to reaching on top.

9. Read a Book

Reading will never go out of fashion. Always carry a book with you. It is the most amazing thing to spend some time with, especially when you are alone and have lots of free time. Fiction or non-fiction, stories of any kind will always entertain you and enlighten you with new life lessons.

10. Eavesdrop: Its Actually Entertaining

The most entertaining thing to do during the long flight or train journey. You get to listen to amazing and exciting stories of the ordinary public, which sometimes are more interesting than Soap operas. I, once eavesdropped on a couple’s fight and seriously the reason was hilarious.

I got entertained like never before.

The Bottom Line

Have some fun, do some exciting things, don’t waste your time in sleeping and playing the same game again and again.
