If you could get paid to watch everything that comes to Netflix each week, you wouldn’t just have a full-time job, you’d be working overtime. A whole pile of content comes to the service this week with a few hits standing out from the rest.
Firefly Lane Season 1 hits Netflix on February 3. Starring Sarah Chalke (Scrubs) and Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy), Firefly Lane tells the story of Tully and Kate, two friends who meet in 1974. The show, based on the novel by Kristin Hannah, follows their friendship over the years as they grow up. Netflix lists the show as “Sentimental, Heartfelt, Intimate,” so get your tissues ready.
