Winter just keeps on coming. If you’ve given up on going outside unless you have to, as I have, there’s no better time to find some comfort watchin’ on Netflix.
Hello, Persephoneers! I hope the holidays were good to you and that you had a wonderful New Year. For me and for a lot of other people, it has brought nothing but snow. Here are some good suspenseful TV shows, all available on Netflix Instant, that you can watch while snowed in.
Good afternoon! It’s chilly out; let’s all stay in with some cocoa and a Netflix marathon. I’ll bring the marshmallows and the peppermint bark.
I know, I know, friends. We started out loving True Blood together, embracing its blend of soap opera, cheese, and some truly impressive shirtless actors. We liked vampires! We liked the gore!

Yes, indeed, I am talking about Doctor Who again. You love it, I love it, and we are all better for it.
Sometimes, I decide to write for this section so that I have an official reason to stray from my compulsive viewing habits.

Since BSG is already recapped around these parts (and done so nicely, […]
What I watched last night is what I’ve been watching nearly every night for the past month, Friday Night Lights on Netflix.
During the last six months I’ve felt like I’ve been standing in front of a tennis ball launcher without a freaking racket, or a good place to hide. In trying to avoid a meltdown, I was spending way too much of my precious post-major-breakup time on the couch with my cat, cursing the fact that […]
For those of us who think The Biggest Loser doesn’t qualify as “health motivation and education,” here are five great films to get you thinking about and participating in your greater health.

It’s a beautiful Wednesday in June, I have the day off from my day job, and of course I’m laid up with a nasty cold. But before I slip back out of consciousness, today’s LTP is sick-day related. What is your favorite sick-in-bed movie? Preferably one that’s on Netflix Instant… not that I’m doing this […]
