Two things are about to happen. (1) The holidays are almost here so most of us will suddenly have more free time than normal. And (2) it is soon going to be January, and I have yet to see a January that wasn’t cold as balls.

Keeping those two things in mind, THANK GOD for streaming services like Amazon Prime Video.

Speaking of such things, check out what’s new on Amazon Prime Video for the month of January 2019.
