Netflix Canada: What's Good In July?

Universal Pictures

We're really in the thick of summer now, aren't we? Now's the perfect time to sit in air-conditioned splendour and enjoy the finest goods Netflix Canada has to offer.

If you're done binging Season 2 of "Orange Is The New Black," don't worry -- there's so much available to catch up on. If horror's your thing, try out Seasons 1 and 2 of "Hannibal," now available. Or maybe you can enjoy the lovely surprise that is the first three seasons of "Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air" (I didn't know it was there, and then BAM! Hours were lost.).

In terms of movies, we're taking a trip back to the '80s with classics "Romancing The Stone" and "The Jewel Of The Nile." We don't have enough romantic adventures nowadays. Not your thing? Then perhaps you'll enjoy "King Kong" (the Jack Black one) or "Knocked Up," starring Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl.
