In 2019, the average amount of TV Canadians watched per week was 13.5 hours…but we’re guessing that this year, that number’s gone way up. With plenty of free time at home and a bevy of streaming services at our fingertips, streaming marathons are becoming a new norm — and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. There are so many great movies and TV shows to stream online; some are thought-provoking and educational, while others offer a great distraction from day-to-day life.
If you’re looking for some new streaming suggestions, here’s what the StyleDemocracy team is binge-watching right now.
