1. Entertainment Weekly's (EW) BINGE Podcast, Season 2: Friday Night Lights
EW's second season podcast of Binge brings us a seven-episode exploration of the show that introduced us to the Dillon Panthers. If you are a fan of this show like me, you'll get hooked immediately. Click here for more info or visit iTunes store to download. If you haven't yet watched the magic of FNL, all five seasons are available on Netflix here.
2. "Santa Clarita Diet" (Netflix)
This show is funny...and twisted. Like, say if "Serial Mom" was a zombie. You'll have to just watch. Find on Netflix here.
3. "Captain Fantastic" (Electric City Entertainment)
"Captain Fantastic" is one of the six movies with an Academy Award nomination for acting (Viggo Mortensen) that didn't get nominated for Best Picture. This movie is about a family that lives off the grid in the Oregon wilderness. When the mom dies the dad (Viggo) has to re-introduce his six kids to the modern world for the funeral and to ensure his wife's last wishes. So good! Learn more about the movie here.
4. Apple iOS 10's Bedtime Feature
If you have trouble getting a restful night's sleep - this could be for you. One of the best new features of Apple's iOS 10 update is the new Bedtime feature in the Clock app. It lets you set the number of hours you'd like to sleep each night and a time to wake up every day. Best part? Instead of being awoken by a jarring alarm, you select a gentle chime that will gradually rise in volume to get you out of bed (with a snooze option of course) - the technological version of the sun peeking through your blinds and stirring you naturally. Isn't that a more calm way to wake up and start a new day?
5. The New England Patriots
I am a life long Patriots fan, so it will be no surprise I am over the moon about their last minute win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
Even though the many haters claim otherwise, this win - as well as the continued success of the team - is due to things like leadership and team work and discipline. I am proud to be a New England Patriots fan.
