I’ve had Netflix for about a year and a half now, and was lucky enough near the end of last year to become a member of the Netflix Stream Team, which has been a fantastic experience. With the Netflix subscription, we didn’t bother renewing our UPC subscription so have saved ourselves money, and time listening to their dire on hold music when the blasted thing wasn’t working (most of the time). In comparison, price wise it was a no brainer, and content wise it just meant less of the crap rubbish mid-week tv I was watching (anything decent live can be watched on the channels player generally online) and more time to catch up on those series that I’d said for months I really should watch.
All Time Favourite:
This is where I begin to sound like a broken record, but definitely The Good Wife. I got absolutely sucked into the lives of Alicia, Will, Diane and Cary and the goings on in their law firm. Alicia is heading back to the workforce after scandal has caused her marriage and her husbands career to nosedive; she is facing a rather Hilary Clinton-esque fate. With amazing clothes (it seems Michelle Obama agrees). It makes for enthralling viewing (as you can see from the video below). Netflix had the first five seasons up, and now I’m all caught up so have to wait until the newest season begins to continue the journey meaning I’ve to find something else to watch.
For the child side of things, Bob the Builder is a serious contender, as there are numerous different series to choose from in the childrens section! I am forever groaning at Bob’s complete lack of cop on with regard to Wendy’s schoolgirl-like infatuation with him; while attempting to get that song (it made number one in the charts for more than one week!) out of my head! And, remember this? Yeah, those lyrics remain stuck in my head to this day more than the real version thanks to babysitting – didn’t think I’d be doing this all over again!
- Downton Abbey. If you haven’t already, you must. The costumes. The drama. Maggie Smith. Need I say more?
- Limitless – interesting concept really well executed.
- Mr & Mrs Smith. As well as being the film where Brangelina happened, it’s actually a pretty good watch.
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – just don’t blame me when the theme tune is stuck in your head.
