For Our Family Netflix is 100% Turn The Brain Off Time

For those who follow the blog each month, you know I post something related to Netflix and kids. Each month the team at Netflix shares a theme that we write about and try to tie it to our family and viewing experiences.

This month, I have to admit, the theme just doesn’t stick for my situation.

For your March post, share which female Netflix characters your kids connect with and how they have made a positive impact.

Now, the obvious is, I don’t have girls and my boys will make a face if I ask who their fave female characters are.

Secondly, when our sons watch Netflix, I am not in the mindset to really focus on what my kids are taking away from it. Yes, call me a bad parent, but it’s the truth.  I am probably dozing with my eyes open.

They, like me, watch Netflix to turn the brain off and just enjoy 22 minutes of entertainment. Whether it’s Saturday morning or a quick cartoon before bed, it’s a time to just relax.

Trump Draws

The world seems to be in the shitter thanks to Trump and his mighty executive pen. The news sucks, social media is depressing, it’s cold outside and the Raptors are a dumpster fire. So what has me laughing?

The amazing Twitter account – Trump Draws.

 

I actually make a point of checking once a day as it seems they are updating it once a day. Makes me feel better.

Netflix New Releases: The Crown Starts Nov. 4

Looking for a new series to get your binge on with? Why not go royal with the latest Netflix original to hit the small screen. The Crown.

My wife and I recently got to attend an exclusive screening of the first two episodes and I have to say, it pulled me in. I can’t wait to watch the other 8 episodes. I also read there are 6 seasons planned. That’s a lot of Queen.

For those who don’t know, The Crown, details the life of Queen Elizabeth starting just before she becomes the Queen. The budget is big, the cast is amazing and it’s a show I can see doing very well with viewers and awards.

It was also cool to hear a few of the characters answer questions at the event in Toronto.

The Crown will start streaming on Nov. 4th in Canada.
