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!

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
