I am thrilled to join the other
Netflix bloggers as part of their exclusive Stream Team, I look forward to
blogging monthly about Netflix and what we are enjoying watching.

I am already a BIG fan of Netflix and have
already watched all of Breaking Bad and Orange is The New Black. I am eagerly awaiting the start of series 3
of Orange is The New Black (not long now till June 12th!).
I love how the girls from the show tackle all the issues of
life in prison. It’s full on ladylove
but if you can look past that (depending on your inclinations!) then you will
see that it has a gripping plot!!! The
cast are fantastic and it can be very funny to watch. So until June the 12th I am making the most of all my
new favourite show, which is Once Upon A Time.
If you have not watched this then
you must, its one big fairytale adventure with a twist! Do not expect to see all the traditional
characters in their normal roles, anything can happen in Once Upon A Time! I have been watching a few episodes every
night and we are now on series 3. Once
I get into a show I consume it up, as quickly as possible I just NEED to know
what happens next. Hook is devilishly handsome
so I need a regular fix just to drool at him (ssssh don’t tell hubbie!!!). I am enjoying watching the on screen
chemistry between him and the lady lead and wondering if he can have a happy
ending for a change. Robert Carlyle is perfectly cast as Rumplestiltskin, he cracks up hubbie and I with his mannerisms! He is a character you cannot help loving even though you probably should not forgive him for his shady behaviour!!! I used to have a crush on him when he was Hamish Macbeth many moons ago (I even named my pet hamster Hamish!).
Other shows we are keen to watch are
Better Call Saul and The Originals, I thought Saul was great in
Breaking Bad so would like to see more of his character. Vampire Diaries we watch regularly so I
would like to see what the spin off is like.
The only problem we have with so many great shows on Netflix is finding
time to schedule them all in our life!
I always feel most disgruntled when I have to blog in an evening if its
keeping me away from Netflix but the fabulous thing is whatever time I manage
to log off my laptop I have something fantastic waiting for me to watch.
During the day if we
have been particularly active we try and watch a family film to relax with the
boys. Parenting is tiring so a little
TV time is a chance to recuperate together; Netflix has a wonderful selection
of films. The boys especially enjoy the Spy
Kids films; they have a keen sense of adventure even when it’s downtime on
