April showers are all the excuse anyone needs to stay indoors with a new movie, which is why Netflix is covering all your bases with light-hearted comedies (Tropic Thunder), musicals (Across the Universe), and even magic thrillers (The Prestige). If you're more of a television fiend, binge away with the first season of Dear White People or Season Two of comedy series Girl Boss.

Plus, calling all night owls: the full Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Ally McBeal series are only available for a few more days before they enter the Netflix crypt on April 1, so get thee to the couch.
