Rightly so, Netflix has become a critical and cherished part of most of our lives.
In a recent poll (January 2016) Netflix was ranked in the top three most important things people could not live without, alongside of food, sleep and their smartphone. Sometimes, yes, sometimes it takes precedence over these previously mentioned things as the number one most important. I can think of multiple times where I have picked Netflix over actual social activities. Food incorporates well with binge-watching Netflix. They basically go hand-in-hand. And sleep? I’ll sleep when I’m dead. Right now, I need to finish this series. Binge-watching that irresistible series on Netflix is critical … at least, that’s what I keep telling myself.
With several new shows and additional seasons of existing shows poised to inspire binge-watches in the coming months, Netflix has announced a handful of 2016 premiere dates recently for comedies, dramas, kids series and stand-up comedy specials, and promised a second season of one of my binge-worthy shows, “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” at a yet-to-be determined date.
Netflix’s U.S. and Canada YouTube channel has also posted a handful of new teasers and trailers in the last several days. Check ‘em out here:
For those of you who don’t fancy a visit to the life-sucking labyrinth of YouTube, or are just unwilling to use your energy to click the mouse that many times … here are the highlights … just scroll with it ——>

So now you should be all ready, amped up to spend the next 7 months binging on Chinese delivery and your favorite Netflix series. Better stock up on kleenex and chocolate so you’re ready for the depression that sets in when you watch all 13 episodes in one day. I’ve lived it, it is all fun and games until the last episode ends. Seriously disastrous.
