January and February are what we call the resolution months — they are often seen as the time to start hitting the gym, hang out more with friends and family, reading new books, setting more 2020 goals, but not necessarily binge-watching Netflix.
Having said that, with the number of new original series and enticing movies dropping this month, maybe an exception can be made. Here are some that you definitely do not want to miss out on.
