Are you up to the challenge to defeat Calamity Ganon and save Hyrule once again?

The Great British Baking Show (2010-2016)

If you’re looking for a show to watch on a rainy lazy day, this is it! Grab a cuppa and some biscuits in your favorite fuzzy PJs while you watch The Great British Baking Show on Netflix from one of our Rokus. It’s the most calming competition show out there.

The contestants seem to genuinely love baking to the point they even help each other out (even though there’s no reason for them to do so except for out of sheer kindness). In one episode, a contestant even started crying when someone else was voted off! The Great British Baking Show is the most loving competition reality show you’ll ever watch—and there are now seven seasons to enjoy.

Final Fantasy XV (Playstation 4 and Xbox One) (2016)

While Final Fantasy fans have been waiting for Final Fantasy XV for a long, long (really long) time, it was definitely worth the wait! It takes a break from the turn-based format that previous FFs have followed for an active-combat system. The world is also ginormous with plenty for new and old players alike to explore as you journey onward with Noctis and the boys. FFXV will be a road-trip that will stick with you for years to come. Check out this game for PS4 or Xbox One.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (2016) PG-13

Whether or not you have played a Final Fantasy game in your life, the story in Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is excellent and moving. Can Nyx save the kingdom? The people of Lucis sure hope so.
