Blue Mountain State, Spike TV, streaming on Netflix and Hulu

Let’s be real — college humor never gets old. Blue Mountain State runs with that premise, taking fans through the lives of fictional college football players. Expect partying, sex, dirty jokes, and all the other things that made up your college experience. Why not invite some old pals over to watch this like you did back in the dorm?
Eastbound & Down, HBO, streaming on HBO Go

What happens when a baseball star falls from grace and has to return to his hometown? If Eastbound & Down can shed any insight, we can only imagine that the results are beyond amusing.

Kenny Powers, an MLB pitcher, gets his comeuppance when he leaves the league and heads to his native North Carolina. While struggling as a substitute middle school phys-ed teacher, Kenny secretly plans his baseball comeback. However, since he makes no plans to tone his offensive statements or his explosive temper, he suffers a few false starts on the road back to the majors.

Even though baseball season is months away, there’s nothing wrong with switching gears this weekend. Plus, given the cold weather that’s gripped most of the country, it doesn’t hurt to think about those spring and summer temperatures!
