As fall semester ends, Netflix streaming will likely increase


Netflix has become a powerhouse for live streaming entertainment.

Now with winter break approaching, Netflix will be in frequent use with plenty of free time ahead.

So allow this list to assist you in find- ing a new television series to binge on or perhaps some movies to enjoy.


“Psych” is a fantastic blend of mystery and comedy. A Santa Barbara “psychic” detective and his best friend Gus get into heaps of trouble solving mysteries.

Main character Shawn Spencer keeps his peers fooled by pretending to have psychic abilities. The show had a seven season run accumulating 121 episodes.

For sports or documentary film fans, just search “30 for 30” for an extensive amount of films from the life of sports.
ESPN’s sports documentaries are made by sports fans telling tales from unforgettable moments in history. You really can’t go wrong with any of the selections.

For the readers of the younger generations, “Cheers” is an oldie but goodie.

It’s set in a Boston bar, owned and ran by former Major League pitcher Sam Malone, where everyone knows your name.

With 11 seasons, there’s plenty to see, lots of laughs and a few tears.

If you’re missing education and still have desire for learning, begin the journey alongside Neil deGrasse Tyson in “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.” It’s a re-imagining of Carl Sagan’s 1980s origi- nal “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.”

The 13-part series takes the viewer through a journey of space, our place in the universe and the great minds who helped progress our understanding of the cosmos. It’s visually stunning and easy to grasp with a great guide.


One to start with is “Stretch.” Not an easy film to explain, but it’s a tale of a limo driver who’s had a rough go of life, and in a deep $6,000 gambling debt.

On this fateful night the main character picks up an eccentric billionaire man-child and the madness follows all as the limo driver agrees to do the billionaire’s bidding to pay his debt.

The film was written and directed by Sacramento native Joe Carnahan.

The heavy, but lighthearted independent drama/comedy, “A Long Way Down” in which four strangers ascend a tall London building to end their lives, but all interrupt each other and decide to live instead is another to watch.

A pact is made and a bond grows. There’s twists and struggles along the way. Actress Imogen Poots’ performance in
this film is riveting and spectacular — truly superb.
