Love is in the air, or is it? If you’re a fan of the insanely popular Netflix show Love Is Blind, it’s back for season 3, Love Is Blind: After the Altar (Feb. 10). As one of the few people who’ve never watched the show, it’s unclear to me what makes this particular series different but I can only imagine it’s scandalous and trashy. Enjoy!

You’ve probably seen images of Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher awkwardly posing on the red carpet this past month. Well, if you weren’t in the know, they’re promoting their new Netflix rom-com, Your Place or Mine (Feb. 10). Two long-distance best friends change each other’s lives when she decides to pursue a lifelong dream and he volunteers to keep an eye on her teenage son.

For something a little spooky, be sure to tune in for the British horror series Red Rose (Feb. 16). Set over a long hot summer following high school, the teens’ friendships are infiltrated by the Red Rose app, which blooms on their smartphones, threatening them with dangerous consequences if they don’t meet its demands. The app exposes the group to a seemingly supernatural entity and the seductive power of the dark web.

For Black History Month, you can check out the new documentary African Queens: Njinga (Feb. 15) narrated by Jada Pinkett Smith (who also acts as Executive Producer). This is the first part of a series that will explore a number of African Queens.

Looking for some romantic counterprogramming? On Valentine’s Day, Jim Jefferies’ newest comedy special, High n’ Dry (Feb. 14), drops on Netflix. The popular Australian comedian talks about stoned koalas, his dad’s vasectomy confusion and much more.
