Entertainment / Television
‘Tis the season for binge-watching TV shows on Netflix. (Does that season ever really end though?) When it’s chilly outside, there’s an even stronger pull to just stay inside on the couch, bundled and warm. Consequently, it can become difficult to figure out what to watch after a few nights of doing this. Enter: classic TV shows.
Netflix has a wide variety of these classics available for viewing. Sure, they aren’t necessarily starring today’s best and hottest actors, but they do at least have stars of their day. Plus, you might just see one of your favorite people in these shows, back when they were starting out.
