As the holidays have come and gone, and you’ve said goodbye to another year’s worth of family holiday dinners, weekend expeditions to find the perfect Christmas tree, marathon shopping excursions, ugly Christmas sweater parties, and wearisome road trips to visit extended family. If you’re left wondering how to fill up all your new-found time or how to put off that inevitable school project, the answer is simple – throw on your favorite sweatpants, curl up on your couch, and get your binge on. Here are a few highlights from what’s new on Netflix in January 2017.
The Superman Movies
Clark Kent may very well be any budding high school journalist’s favorite news reporter. But really, who doesn’t love a geeky undercover superhero?

Will Superman be able to foil the evil plots against humanity? Watch your favorite high-flying hero, Christopher Reeve, in this original four movie series to find out.
E.T. the Extra Terrestrial
This heartwarming plotline, circa 1982, is enough to give anyone a dash of extraterrestrial nostalgia of yesteryear.
