Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, my Netflix account and I...
Sure, this is a slight (OK, major) edit of the "Beauty and the Beast" song, but the love between me and my Netflix is so very real. This is me in front of my TV 18.7 hours a day:
When Emma Watson isn't providing the perfect clap back at haters who are basically trying to control what she can and can't do with her body, she's binge-watching a show that you probably binge-watch... a lot.
