Netflix and Newborn

While having a new baby in the house has definitely been a huge adjustment I always make time for Netflix. Honestly, if Netflix wasn’t keeping track of what I have and haven’t watched, and which episode I fell asleep during I think I would be still be watching Pretty Little Liars on repeat – anyone else think the new series was a little bit pointless? Anyway, here are a few things I have been watching and what I have on my ‘to watch list’. The upside to night feeds – having total control of the remote control!

RuPauls Drag Race

I watched the first episode of this the night before Finn was born and as you can imagine my mind was a million miles away. Since coming home with my little fire ball I have gone through all 5 seasons on Netflix and am now watching the current season. I love all things reality tv, make up and comedy and this has all of those things. Some of those drag queens do make up better than most women I know!

Jane the Virgin

I was a little late to the party on this one after seeing several others rave about Jane the Virgin. They were right! It is a telenovela style comedy drama. After deciding to remain celibate until marriage, you can imagine the shock when Jane discovers she is pregnant after a routine gynaecologist appointment. That is only the tip of the preverbal iceberg when it comes to what Jane is about to encounter.

Pretty Little Liars

If you haven’t watched PLL by now where have you been? I began watching when it first aired and have kept up to date ever since. I must admit that the latest series was far from my favourite and I found it all a little bit pointless – with me zoning out for 75% of each episode and still not missing anything. However, the finale did end on quite a cliffhanger which will have me tuning into season 7.

Frozen

No words needed. I am sure everyone and their mother knows what Frozen is about and has either sung it with their children or in the nightclub on a Saturday night. Yes, they play Disney songs in the nightclub now – at least thats what I’ve been told, I haven’t been inside one since my college days.

Gnomeo & Juliet

I am not a fan of the smurfs so initially I passed over Gnomeo and Juliet. I admit that one day I put it on for Aidan but when he went for his nap I was so invested that I just had to keep watching. It takes the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet and switches it up – with garden gnomes!

The Gift

Like 90% of couples, Clayton and I hardly ever agree on something to watch and when we do one of us either hates it or falls asleep (me). We both like thrillers so decided to give The Gift a go. The story is slow to start but then it is full of twists and has you changing your feeling towards the characters throughout. The ending was definitely unpredictable and memorable.



Still to watch…

Prince of Egypt

God I love this film! (pun intended!) I remember seeing this first in school and loving it. I want to watch it just for the beauty that is ‘When you believe’

Prison Break

I am definitely one of the last people to watch Prison Break. After saying a hundred times that I am going to start it somehow it always manages to get forgotten. Since they have said they are coming back with a new season I have decided (again) to watch the previous seasons.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

I LOVED season 1 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! I still remember where I was when I watched the last episode. (I was on the landing folding clothes incase you were wondering). I had planned to spend last weekend with Kimmy, Titus and excessive chocolate but as I mentioned briefly above I have a newborn now who was far from co-operative! Maybe this week, Finn?

 

Now, I have a special request for Netflix. Could you please release more seasons of Paw Patrol because if I find myself watching that Halloween episode once more I may cry! Like, don’t get me wrong who doesn’t love a puppy Elvis or one with a pumpkin on their head but after 1,439,527 times the cuteness starts to wear off!

What have you been watching on Netflix lately? Is there anything you think that I should watch?

    1. And huge congratulations to you too 🙂 Jane the Virgin is definitely a great one to watch when you have limited brain power but still want something funny and addictive

  1. I love this – when Edie was born I started watching The Walking Dead and I ended up watching 6 seasons in a matter of a few weeks! I loved being able to make something of those late nights that I could just walk up and down with her and enjoy myself! H x

  2. Have you tried “House Of Cards”? My husband and I both LOVE that show. It’s a little slow the first few episodes but picks up quickly and this most recent season was awesome. I can’t remember if we have seen “The Gift”. We watch so many damn movies it’s ridiculous. And like you and your husband we are either one is loving it and the other is falling asleep or vice versa. I am visiting from the Facebook BloggerClubUK page.

  3. Everyone raves about Kimmy Schmidt but I just couldn’t get into it (though I seem to be the only one!). Netflix has pretty much replaced normal TV in my house these days. I love it!

  4. Ohhh the only one that I have seen is Pretty Little Liars. And yes you’re so right about the last series. I’m interested to try a few more of these though. I love netflix though. I treat myself to a show every night before bed! I’d be lost without my subscription. x
