I can remember back to when I would be curled under my covers, flipping pages of a book, desperate to see what happens and how it ends. Many a morning (ahem day) was sacrificed in my pursuit of closure for these characters.
As the kids came, and grew, my interest in trading sleep for endings changed. I would fall into bed exhausted each night, dozing off after just a few minutes of a show, or a page (or less) of a book.
But now the kids are grown (ish) and more capable of taking care of themselves in the morning. My days are more balanced, and my evenings include more ME time… with less exhaustion.
And lately, the list of binge-worthy shows that are causing the Netflix prompt of “Are you still watching” to come up is growing ! Here are a few of my favourite new and old releases that will be well worth the sleep sacrifice… or the perfect accompaniment to dinner making an laundry folding.
A new Netflix original this is the story of 3 people who travel through time to key moments in history. For a history buff like myself, being able to get a taste of the Hindenburg crash, or a visual of Bonnie & Clyde is priceless. Loaded with history, facts and some “enhancements” this is a show that you will keep your mind twitching!
I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT THE LAST EPISODE WAS POSTED!! This is a weekly release show that hasn’t had an update all summer… except for suddenly when there was an additional episode that shows the end, and the beginning of the world (again) If you haven’t STARTED watching this, get on it! A crazy story of what happens AFTER the world collapses!
Old Skool Movie Night
Sixteen Candles, Say anything, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Buellers Day Off… and more! All the shows that formed our ideas as youth are back! Watching them with our teens now also helps us see how much the world has changed, and how WE changed it! (ummm rape culture anyone)
All the Favourites!
Outlander, Walking Dead, Greys Anatomy, SO MANY shows that if you missed them the first time, are all ready and prepped for you on Netflix! And with Fall upon us, we KNOW that new episodes will soon be coming!
Whatever your pleasure, Netflix will keep you company during your workouts, dishes, late nights or lazy mornings!
