Judd Apatow wasn't really a dysfunctional household name until he hit it big with a string of successful big screen films like the 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad. And although most of his die-hard fans and critics usually mourn the loss of Freaks and Geeks, it was his last foray on the small screen, Undeclared, that I've become re-obsessed with lately. Recently one of my colleagues offered to burn the first and only season of Undeclared for me onto DVD. I brought the three discs home and watched them all, and fell in love with them all over again.
For 16 days straight, world-class athletes from around the globe who have trained for years gather to... totally ruin our TV schedules and DVRs. And it's not just NBC's lineup that is put on hold while people perform in death-defying sports for an all-too-brief moment of glory. No, other channels put their shows on hiatus so they don't have to compete with the 2014 Winter Games. So if you're not glued to the drama going on in Sochi, the Olympics will feel like an awfully long two weeks. (Everything on the other channels is usually either a repeat or The Taste.) Thankfully, Netflix -- as is so often the case -- is at your rescue. If you're not an Olympics person (or simply need a break from all that spinning and luging), this is prime time to do some Netflix binging.
