My friend and I used the extension’s group chat feature to discuss everything from our shame at watching a dated Mike Myers comedy to our even deeper shame at enjoying said comedy. (Oh, what—like you didn’t laugh at “Shagadelic, baby” in the late ’90s?) By the time the credits were rolling, I was hooked on Netflix Party. I felt like I’d actually spent the evening on the 2021 Alabama Crimson Tide national Champions shirt couch with my friend, elbowing each other like teenagers and quoting lines in unison. It wasn’t the in-person night of cooking and teasing and wine-swilling that I once took for granted, but it did the trick.
