When it's cold outside, the comfort of my couch sounds way more appealing than getting dressed up and freezing my butt off just to get an overpriced drink at a noisy, crowded bar. A.k.a cold weather seasons are my Netflix-and-chill season.
Whether you're watching the new season of Empire or binge-watching old episodes of The Office (John Krasinski will always have my heart), these are the products from Amazon that will make your TV-watching session that much better. Welcome to your Friday night plans.
1. This wildly popular popcorn maker
Reviews: 5,371 Rating: 4.8 stars
A movie night without popcorn is like a party without cake—what's the point? If you're one of those fancy people who buy bulk kernels instead of the cheaper pre-buttered bags, you can pop them in this microwaveable contraption that doubles as a bowl when it's finished. It has received rave reviews for being as easy to use as it is easy to clean and for its large capacity (it can make up to 15 cups in under four minutes).
2. The best streaming device
Reviews: 2,269 Rating: 4.3 stars
According to our experts, who have tested a variety of options, the Roku Ultra is the only streaming device you'll ever need.

Throw blankets are a lot like brownies and Lululemon leggings: You can never have too many.

5. This organizer to keep your remotes in one place
Reviews: 608 Rating: 4 stars
How many times have you wanted to change the channel, turn down the volume, or pause the movie—but you have no idea where the remote is? It's happened to me more times than I'd like to admit, which is why this armrest caddy is a must-have. Reviewers rave about it for not only keeping them organized, but also for being durable and doubling as protective covers for their couch arms.
6. This blanket sweatshirt you'll never want to take off
Reviews: 943 Rating: 4.8 stars
I impulsively bought The Comfy last fall and it was the best decision I've ever made. Anyways, it's not an understatement to say I live in this oversized blanket sweatshirt once cold weather hits. Its sherpa lining keeps me super warm and I can easily move from couch to kitchen for more snacks, which The Comfy has a big pocket to hold.
7. This cupholder that clips to your couch

8. This must-have accessory for your TV
Reviews: 2,652 Rating: 4.3 stars
I never knew lights like these existed for your TV until I moved in with my very light-obsessed ex (seriously, you should've seen our house, especially at Christmastime). As much as I teased him about them, they actually grew on me—and I understand why thousands of other people like them, too. These, which users say are very easy to install, can light up in 16 different colors to create just the right ambiance and can help make the TV screen pop.
9. This stand for anyone who watches Netflix in bed

PSA: Using your laptop while lying in bed is basically a recipe for a stiff neck and a sore back. That's where this lightweight, collapsible tray comes in.

Reviews: 573 Rating: 4.1 stars
After testing a variety of soundbars, our experts fell in love with the Sonos Beam. It's because of its spectacular sound quality, which our testers found was unmatched by any other soundbars at a similar price. It also has surprisingly good bass and Amazon Alexa functionality, too.
13. These special glasses to protect your eyes
Reviews: 2,559 Rating: 4 stars
Part of the reason you feel so tired after endless hours of watching TV is because your eyes are strained from the blue light that tech devices give off. Reviewers swear by these glasses that block that light and prevent eye fatigue. They've gotten great reviews for not only looking good, but working even better.
14. This extra long charger so your phone doesn't die
Reviews: 1,745 Rating: 4.4 stars
One thing I'll never understand is why Apple's iPhone chargers are still so short. And because you won't want to miss a crucial scene in Stranger Things while you're up charging your phone, you'll want this 10-foot cable instead. It's beloved on Amazon for its charging power and its impressive durability as it can withstand up to 175 pounds of tension.
15. This massage cushion every couch marathoner needs
Reviews: 1,026 Rating: 4.4 stars
You may love your 8-hour Netflix binge, but your body does not. To make your couch time more comfortable—and your joints less stiff—sit on this comfy cushion, which has three different massage areas: Full back, upper back, and lower back. According to its reviews, it's great at relieving knots and tension thanks to its adjustable pressure and heat therapy settings. One person even said it "just kneads your back like pizza dough."
16. This brilliant snack bowl
Reviews: 446 Rating: 4.5 stars
Trying to decide what to have for a snack is not something to take lightly. Sometimes you just can't choose—and you don't have to if you have these bowls. With two separate sections (originally meant for cereal and milk), reviewers like that they're easy to hold and the perfect size for your snacking needs.
17. These joking-but-also-serious socks
Reviews: 1,668 Rating: 4.6 stars
While I personally would change wine to beer, I still 10/10 support the message behind this adorable pair of socks. People who have purchased them enjoy that they're soft and comfortable. Not only that, but the writing on the bottom is actually printed in non-slip ink so you won't fall on your way back to the fridge for a refill—although that may be more due to the wine than the socks at that point.
18. These noise-cancelling headphones with a cult-following
Reviews: 3,379 Rating: 4.4 stars
There's a reason people are obsessed with Bose headphones. They block out outside sounds better than most thanks to their active noise cancellation (ANC) technology. That's essential if you have noisy family members, noisy roommates, or worse, noisy neighbors. The Bose QC 35 are one of our experts' favorite pair because they're lightweight, comfortable to wear, and have up to 20 hours of battery life.
