Welcome to a new episode of The Couch. Today I’m back with my good friend and friend of the show, Jenny Rapson!

Jenny is a writer, a shampoo slinger for Monat, and a proponent of forced family fun (which, yes, will come up later). We had a great time talking, just like we always do, and I know you’ll love this conversation too.

In this episode, we’re talking about family movie nights—something we’ve both been doing a lot of over the past year and a half, and one of the few things we want to keep from pandemic life. We’ve got tips for making a movie night work for your family and a big ol’ list of movies we’ve loved watching. And because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also get into favorite TV shows we’ve introduced to our kids and a kitchen gadget I may have mentioned before but love it so much I’m talking about it today anyway. I’m glad you’re here, friends. Let’s get started!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.
