Netflix

I was given a subscription to Netflix for six months as a Christmas present this year. It’s actually one of those most thoughtful gifts someone could have given me with the amount of time I spend at home.

I have been watching E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G I’ve missed over the years. Since I didn’t own a television from 2006-2020, I largely just watched shows available on YouTube. I mean, when I was unemployed last year, I would watch shows occasionally with family members, but it was never anything I chose. Now I get to choose.

I have been watching:

  • Richie Rich – Technically I had already seen this but it’s still just as good as it was when I was a kid
  • Law Abiding Citizen – This movie was so good!
  • Forrest Gump – A movie that was 2.5 hours and didn’t bore me
  • Braveheart – A movie that was 3 hours and that I didn’t love
  • Superbad – It was actually kind of funny
  • Godfather 1 & 2 – Not the hugest fan of these movies
  • V for Vendetta – THIS WAS SO GOOD
  • How I Met Your Mother – I’m realizing there are episodes I never saw when it was airing, though I thought I’d seen the whole show

Since closures here will continue for several weeks longer, at least, it looks like Netflix is going to come in handy to help with my boredom.

If anyone has any recommendations for things to watch on Netflix, please share!

      1. It’s more of the Queen’s life from the time her dad passed away. The last season is Diana, who would be a year older than me. I think it’s more of showing a human side of the royals? It’s pretty interesting, I can see why Harry & Megan ran…although I still think Megan took the baby & ran & that it was quite a coincidence Diana died within the year after she bashed Charles saying he would never be king. Regardless, it’s a really good series!!

  1. I just watched Superbad the other night, too! I was on a Seth Rogan roll…watched This Is The End, Superbad and Pineapple Express all in about a week.
    No real Netflix-y suggestions, since I’ve been on Hulu most nights watching Letterkenny, which is ok but not something I’d call a “must see”. Oh, but I did just finish s3 of Ozark, which I would recommend. It’s moody and stressful, so I’d also recommend taking breaks!

    1. I love Seth Rogan. I was surprised when I realized I’d never watched Superbad. Typically I always watch movies he’s in.

      Is Ozark a horror show? The pictures look deep/mysterious.

      1. Haha, I read almost all of the BSC books as a kid. I didn’t watch the old series, but the reboot on Netflix is cute and surprisingly witty. Hope you give it a go!

      1. I also had two people email me Black Mirror. Feel like I need to watch now. I’m clearly missing out on something.

      1. Black Mirror is brilliant, but I will also say that each episode can be a hit-or-a-miss. Some I like better than others…but it doesn’t hurt to give them all a watch before making your judgment on them!

    1. People keep mentioning the Queen’s Gambit. I feel like if it’s that popular then I should really check it out! Also, I’ve not heard of Disenchantment so it’s time for me to do some research.

  2. It’s really good! Well acted, aesthetically pleasing, a lot of drama and ASMR from the chess board playing. Highly recommend. Disenchantment is hilarious, if you’re a fan of the Simpson’s or Futurama you may like it. As far as rom coms (saw your comment up above), check out Always Be My Maybe…super cute story and funny!

  3. When we had Netflix, I watched documentaries like the Minimalists, crime shows, and the Marie Kondo series (it’s a short 13 episode series). I also watched a lot of baking competitions and cooking shows. Shows I could not follow were Game of Thrones, and The Crown wasn’t my cup of tea (pun intended).

  5. V, I have one that you will understand. It is a documentary about social media. What went wrong concerning misinformation. They talk about algorithms, and things like that. It is called “The Social Dilemma” I started watching it yesterday because it was on the news and how the social media platforms were not surprised about what happened on Wednesday. It should be good for a couple of posts for you.

  6. Netflix is my guilty pleasure and what I use to wind down at night often times. I have rediscovered old series like Dawson’s Creek that remind me of my high school days in the 90s. I loved it! I started watching Surviving Death with my Mom because she has so many questions about the invisible world of Spirit that I communicate with and of my Dad. It’s about near death experiences and how science can’t explain or truly measure consciousness. It’s also giving her a better understanding of me and how I navigate the different realms and dimensions between our physical world and that unseen one. I also liked Bridgerton, a period piece set in England in the Regency era about a gossip writer. Very entertaining indeed. I enjoyed the Queen’s Gambit and the series The Tudors too. Gosh, I watch a lot of Netflix lol 😆 Enjoy V!!

    1. Everyone keeps talking about the Queen’s Gambit! I feel like that must be quite popular. As for the rest, I haven’t heard from them. But I’m making a list! I’ve got six months subscription so plenty of time to catch up.

      1. Yes it’s very captivating indeed, a female master chess player in the 1960s. Six months is loads of time to get through a lot. Happy viewing 😊

    1. Ohhhhhh I saw the first season of this on YouTube. Your comment made me realize I never watched it after that. And it’s probably relevant to everything going on right now.

  7. Netflix has better content than Amazon, and you don’t have to pay a fee to watch a movie that is ten years old. Try side loading the Cinema app on your fire stick or smart TV, and get loads of free movies. I ended my Amazon Prime membership and will miss a few programs, but not many.
