The Man in the High Castle: If you have Amazon Prime, you can watch this for free right now. If you don't, you should still watch it. It's a thrilling series about an alternate timeline in a world where the USA did not win World War II. Full of espionage and mystery, it keeps you on edge.
Ethan & Emma Stroller Organizer: Any stay-at-home dad knows that a stroller organizer is a must for any parent. This one is outstanding.
