" First Viewing Viewing Date: January 22nd Via: Binge Plot: After crash-landing in the snowswept Andes, a Uruguayan rugby team has no choice but to turn to desperate measures in order to survive. Rating: 8.2/10 Why Did I Watch It? It was mentioned in the new Ted TV show, and there's a new Netflix movie about the same subject matter, so it seemed like a good choice."
