Quarantine and Chill: Here’s what you should be watching

Let’s talk about the C-word… Coronavirus. Not only is the Coronavirus putting a pause on our 2020 plans, it’s also requiring us to practice “Social Distancing” spoiling all of our late-night Netflix and chill guilty pleasures. Staying inside is the right thing to do to minimize the outbreak and create a safe space for vulnerable people around the world. 

Just because we’re going to be spending more time at home doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Now more than ever we need to know what the best on-demand shows and movies are, and that’s why I’ve created the ultimate quarantine and chill list for you.
