We get it: now that the weather is nothing short of perfection, there’s a ton of pressure to get outside and revel in the warmth. Well, some of us are pasty as hell (*slowly raises hand*) and can’t risk turning into a crispy tomato, so we would much rather just stay inside. But even if you’re not prone to ridic sunburns, maybe you feel like basking in the cool AC under crisp white bed sheets after a long work week, and say, binging a new series on Netflix?
Listen here, y’all. We did the hard work for you and put together up a red-hot round-up of brand new TV shows and movies coming (like a second season of Nailed It!, which had us cry-laughing over our heaping bowls of popcorn) and going (like OG eps of our fave childhood series Full House *sobs*) on Netflix Canada in June 2018.
