It’s a three-day weekend for America — and included in those three days is Valentine’s Day AND President’s Day. Conditions are prime for some takeout and binge watching. Whether you’re single and burrowing into your couch or a couple just looking to Netflix and chill through the weekend, the Internet is your oyster. These 10 movies and TV shows will get you through. Cheers to the freaking weekend.
1. Scrotal Recall: Dylan gets tested. Dylan finds out he has chlamydia. Dylan must now go and tell every woman he’s slept with. The show is a Netflix original and is one of the hidden gems on the streaming site. Trust us when we say it’s much more endearing and witty than its title suggests. (Image via Netflix)
2. Man Seeking Woman: Starring funnymen Jay Baruchel and Eric Andre, this show is a hysterical and often touching look at falling in love in your 20s — complete with the wedding from hell and dates with swamp monsters (literally). You can find this hilarious show on Hulu. (Image via FXX)
3. Tangerine: Make this the weekend you finally watch Tangerine, that movie that was shot on an iPhone that everybody seems to be talking about. Besides the strides the show has made in democratizing film-making, it also represents a major step forward for the LGBTQ community. Check it out on Netflix this weekend.

4. Transparent: Amazon’s major foray into Emmys territory came in the form of last year’s Transparent, starring the always-funny Jeffrey Tambor. The show, although dealing with serious social issues, manages to be simultaneously tender, touching and uproarious. (Image via Amazon)
5. The Godfather: Here’s an offer you can’t refuse: The Godfather is back and streaming on HBO GO. If you’ve never seen the iconic movie, stay in and watch the Epic (parts one and two). As soon as you’ve finished watching, you’ll start getting so many more references. (Image via Paramount Pictures)
6. Cruel Intentions: One of the most iconic films of the ’90s, Cruel Intentions is now available on Netflix. It’s a must-see for those who have never watched it and a must-rewatch for everybody who has. You’ll never look at a rosary the same way again. (Image via Columbia Pictures)
