There are many reasons to love the month of February. Aside from holidays like Valentine’s Day and President’s Day (hopefully a three-day weekend of streaming is in your future!), the month is loaded with entertainment. It’s time to fall back in love your favorite TV shows like Billions, Girls and The Walking Dead, and get to know some hot new flings including the highly anticipated Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix and 24: Legacy on FOX.
