Cold and broke? Here’s comedy to watch on Netflix until February
Yup, it's officially Blue Monday.
And while health experts and doctors are sceptical about the legitimacy of the concept of the 'most depressing day of the year,' a cold, dark, flat-out broke month is certainly enough to make us consider hibernation until February 1.
So if you are looking for something to lift your spirits – and one that doesn't involve spending any money (see above) – having a larf with the help of Netflix is a decent place to start.
