Jan. 3, 2014 -- intro: It's an all too familiar situation: You went to the grocery store to make sure that your fridge was stocked for this snowstorm, but now you're stuck inside with nothing to do. We get it. You may be aware that last week, a host of fan-favorite films disappeared from Netflix, but this week, new ones are being added. Here are a few new movies and TV shows that you can binge watch on Netflix while staying in from the cold, complete with their official summaries. If you prefer Hulu, those new releases are listed after the Netflix listings.
