Feeding our friendly Netflix addiction one show at a time! Here are more great shows to add to your Netflix list!
I’m continually amazed at the shows and movies Netflix has available to watch…so many to see, so little time! I swear I have about 5 different shows going all at the same time! Right now I’m binge watching Grey’s Anatomy, and my husband and I are still watching Wentworth…all this in between binge watching Stranger Things! But there is just so much good stuff on Netflix, and it just keeps on coming. So I wanted to share a few newly released titles that I thought you might also enjoy!
Have you watched Stranger Things yet? My social media news feed filled with status updates about this new show on Netflix, so my husband and I jumped in and watched it. It’s a very very strange show, and honestly I’m not sure I loved it. Liked it yes, but loved it…not so much (I really liked the characters and all of the 80s movie references, I just found the overall story a little lacking?). Maybe there’s something strange with me, because I definitely seem to be in the minority here?
Synopsis: A 12 year old boy goes missing in a small town under very strange circumstances. His mom and friends go on a mission to find him, and are led into extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, scary supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.
I have added the movie, The Fundamentals of Caring, to my watch list. This looks like a tear jerker. Plus I have a thing for Paul Rudd. Sigh.
Synopsis: After a personal tragedy, a man enrolls in a class about care-giving and becomes a disabled teen’s caregiver, which changes his perspective on life.
I love Ellen Page, so this is the main reason I added this movie to my list, but after reading into a bit more, Tallulah looks like a must watch.
Synopsis: A dissatisfied Beverly Hills housewife (Allison Janney) becomes tired of caring for her toddler, and hires a stranger (Ellen Page) to babysit.
The Netflix Original Series, Marvel’s Daredevil, is one that really appeals to my husband and teens. I have started to enjoy shows like this too, so I’ll sit down and make this one a family event.
Synopsis: This show follows Matt Murdock, who is an attorney by day and a vigilante by night. Murdock was blinded as a child, and as an adult he now uses his heightened senses as Daredevil to fight crime on the streets of New York.
I started Chef on a plane trip, but didn’t get to see the ending because we had to land! Ha! Anyway, I really liked this movie and wanted to finish it, and now I can because it’s now on Netflix!
Synopsis: Chef Carl Casper loses his high end restaurant job, then starts up a food truck in an effort reignite his passion for cooking, while at the same time piecing back together his estranged family.
Synopsis: The Get Down is a musical drama television series set in the South Bronx in the late 1970s, documenting the rise of a new art form, hip hop. This show stars Jaden Smith, and by the sounds of it, this show is really popular right now!
I actually went to see the movie, This Is Where I Leave You, in the theatre by myself…I do that sometimes and it’s glorious! This is a laugh at loud movie and I can’t wait to watch it again!
Synopsis: After their father passes away, four adult children are forced home for a week by their mother, and during that time they re-examine their history and relationships with each other.
And have you seen this? Bob Ross is on Netflix! I remember occasionally watching him paint when I was a kid. Too funny!
