I’m a proud Netflix Stream Team member, and as such receive complimentary streaming services. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I absolutely love hearing from my friends about what they are currently loving on Netflix because it helps me find great new content for me and for my girls. So now it’s my turn to share what we are currently watching and loving so you can add some new programs to your watch list!
I think my favorite find this month was Schitt’s Creek. It stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara (two actors from my all-time favorite movie, Waiting for Guffman) and is about an extremely wealthy family who loses absolutely everything, except for the deed to a horribly named small town they purchased years ago as a joke. The actors are absolutely hilarious and the family actually does some significant growing, which is fun to watch.
I’m also loving The Good Place, starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. This is an NBC show that launched last fall, but since I don’t watch television at all, I totally missed it. I hope Netflix will be able to snag more content like this right after the season ends on network TV in the future! The basic idea of the show is that Eleanor (played by Bell) dies and ends up in The Good Place…only she really should have been sent to The Bad Place! Lots of shenanigans transpire as she tries to keep her secret and perhaps even earn her way into being rightfully there. It’s hilarious!
Darah’s top pick for the month is The Magic School Bus Rides Again. This is a remake of the already amazing series from the ’90s and we all really enjoy it. They pack so much learning into an episode while keeping kids completely mesmerized and engaged. We actually watch episodes as part of our homeschool day! This content can only be found on Netflix streaming services.
Darah is also cycling through the Monster High content on Netflix since it’s the perfect thing to watch in October. And she has plenty of options: there are currently 14 different Monster High titles streaming on Netflix! These are actually fun to watch as a family. Give them a try some time this week if you haven’t, yet!
Netflix just launched a new series called Super Monsters and it is a HUGE hit with Layah. The characters are the children of the world’s most famous monsters, and they are coming together for kindergarten adventures. It’s so cute and fun and of course, the timing is spot on as we move toward Halloween!
Layah also suggests Spirit Riding Free, which is another Netflix Original done in collaboration with DreamWorks. It’s about a girl who forms a tight bond with a horse. It has caused Layah to beg for the opportunity to get to go visit a horse and perhaps even ride one. Love the adventures the kids undertake in this fantastic series.
That’s what we’re watching this month. Now it’s your turn to tell me what you are watching!
