Valentine’s Day may be on a Friday – which means staying up late isn’t a problem – most people would’ve booked tables at the best romantic restaurants a while ago. However, if you didn’t manage to snag a good table, or if you’re worried about the situation regarding Corvid-19, then it’s a great time to stay home and binge-watch (with a bottle of champagne, perhaps?).
Here are six titles that you and your beau can watch together this Valentine’s Day, and they’re all available on Netflix.
