Our January #netflixstreamteam Update

My Netflix update is only just on time this month I think its because we’ve been so busy watching decent content I forgot to actually tell you guys what had caught our interest.

We have watched a couple of films this month; it’s made a welcome change from going from one show straight to another.  I would recommend “What We Do In The Shadows” and “Mortdecai” in particular, there are heaps more on there but those two stood out this month.  “What We Do In The Shadows” is hilarious, quite dark but very funny!  You will be giggling about the antics of this very mixed group of vampires, its like an off the wall documentary learning more about them! 

Mortdecai has Johnny Depp playing an art dealer who goes on a bit of a wild goose chase; I liked it because his loyal manservant sticks with him through thick and thin whilst Lord Mortdecai seems to get himself into one difficult position after another.  His wife Johanna Mortdecai (Gwyneth Paltrow) openly gags about his moustache too, so I was using that as ammunition for my hubbie to get rid of his…

We have just found Shadow Hunters The Mortal Instruments but Netflix is drip-feeding us that show, so we have to hang on (by the seat of our pants!) until Wednesday each week.  I am loving the chemistry between Clary and Jace.


To be honest it’s probably a more sensible way for me to watch a series as if its all there available to watch each month becomes a blur of whatever show I decide is worthy of our attention.  But by watching it at a more moderate pace we can continue to enjoy other shows and films.

So we have been also squeezing in some Chuck and Between.  Chuck is easy to watch, if you’re tired out after a long day it’s a nice safe option, its not scary or difficult to follow.  Yet still quite intriguing following the adventures of Chuck Bartowski who is a bit of a loveable geek turned secret agent.  Actually it looks like he becomes a bit more adjusted to the role as the series progresses and in a tuxedo could give any Bond a run for his money!


Between we are only on episode two but I have a thing for survivalist shows.  Although this virus has a cut off of 22 years, once you get to that not so magic number it appears to be game over… at 37 I am not a happy bunny about this news but I am keen to see how the people of Pretty Lake fare.

  10. We don't have Netflix, but I think accessing shows and films on demand like services such as Netflix and Sky does is fantastic.
