Fever Pitch

dvr this On Netflix While I have almost no interest in sports, let alone the World Cup, I love sports movie.

C.O.G.

dvr this On Netflix This adaptation of the David Sedaris essay of the same name made barely a ripple when it was barely released in theaters last year.

Orange is the New Black

dvr this On demand on Netflix The second season of Netflix’s breakout hit dramatic comedy about a women’s prison debuted last week, and I binged on all thirteen episodes in one sitting. The second season is better than the first. By focusing less on annoyingly entitled blonde goody good Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), and much [...]
