Weekends are sacred. And we’re all about preserving every last possible second of free time you have. So, because our New Year’s resolution was to be more giving and charitable, we’re giving you the gift that keeps on giving: time. Don’t spend one more second debating what you should watch. We’ve done the hard part for you and put together a list of the 10 shows and movies worth streaming this weekend. Now you can spend your free time doing something more enjoyable… like maybe writing us a thank-you note?
