This may come as a shock to you, but sometimes you really just want to watch some Netflix…and chill. There’s no innuendo in that statement; no suggesting there’s a part two to that premiere. Nope, sometimes you legitimately are hanging out on Netflix and want to check out an awesome movie or binge watch some random TV show. The beauty of Netflix is that it’s ever-changing—with films and shows that fall in and out of rotation—so you can rationalize those chill nights with the concept that if you don’t watch what you want now, you may never get that chance. We have a whole list of things to check out on Netflix now to make that chill worthwhile. And hey, watch them a couple of times so after repeated views, that whole “Netflix and Chill” mantra can remain in tact and your reputation will be redeemed.

If you don’t relate to at least one of those things, then chances are you aren’t breathing.
