Lindsay Lohan is back with a sweet new fantasy rom-com on Netflix that's perfectly timed for St. Patrick's Day! In her latest movie, she plays Maddie, a woman desperately in love with a man who is preparing to marry her best friend.

Not wanting to cause any problems, Maddie sucks it up and plays the part of a perfect bridesmaid, only to then make a spontaneous wish that causes her to wake up with her dream seemingly becoming a reality. But is the person she thought was her true love really the right one? Or is her soulmate someone else entirely?

Love Is Blind season 6 reunion

For those who have been keeping up with Love Is Blind season 6, now is the time to see how the season really ends as we catch up with the cast. And I have to say, as someone who has been critical of Nick and Vanessa Lachey in the past, those two really clocked in for this finale.

They held some of the sneaks this season (Trevor and Jeramey) accountable and addressed some of the off-screen scandals that came out on social media as the series was airing. Plus, we also get our standard updates on the other couples: like did Clay and AD try to make it work? What about Chelsea and Jimmy? And how are Johnny and Amy doing?

Netflix also invited back several couples from previous season's for this reunion and we got some updates on how they're doing, along with a special announcement for Perfect Match season 2 at the end of the reunion that you won't want to miss!

Chicken Nugget

  • Episode count: 12
  • Cast: Ryu Seung-ryong, Ahn Jae-hong, and Kim You-jung
  • Rating: TV-MA

Chicken Nugget is an offbeat absurdist comedy series from Korea that features two men trying to save a young woman (one man's daughter, the other's lover) after she is transformed into a chicken nugget by a strange machine.

If that sounds like a weird premise for a show, yeah, it's definitely leaning into absurdist comedy! But the series also promises to be sweet, emotional, and really funny. If you like Korean series and generally enjoy trying new things then you should give this one a try!
