Something for all the family on Netflix

Here are some things we’ve been watching on Netflix recently:

My youngest 2 kids have been loving the antics of Spongebob Squarepants – although my four year old is convinced he’s actually called Sparepants (always handy to have a spare pair of pants!).

The same small boy is currently obsessed with Paw Patrol, an animated show about a high-tech boy and his clever dogs who rescue people from tricky situations. He must have watched every one of the 26 episodes 3 times at least.

The youngest two will happily sit for ages watching any of the Lego Friends and Barbie shows on Netflix, even if they are a bit inane and the characters are all air-heads. I suppose at least it’s age-appropriate, unlike some of the Minecraft videos they all always want to watch on YouTube.

My eldest is still a fan of Lego Chima and Lego Ninjago – having also watched them many times, but a new release of Batman Be-Leaguered and Lego City has given him something new to watch. The lego movies and shows are great action adventures and can be really funny at times.


And the hubby, well he’s just watched the whole series of Narcos, which he said reminded him of Breaking Bad, and he likes Prison Break too.

The whole 24 series past me by whenever it was made, but I can now watch it back-to-back and binge-watch until I drift asleep. I can see where so many TV shows since then got their ideas from, in terms of split screens, and real-time pacing of action, especially shows about government agencies such as Homeland.

I also really enjoyed the newish movie About Time. From the Richard Curtis stable of emotional yet feel-good movies, this one is sweet and heart-warming with a few tears at the end. Perfect for Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, it’s time to start finding movies for the kids to watch to feed their Christmas frenzied excitement, so I’ve lined up Christmas Angel and Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure for the kick off, and I'm sure we'll find loads more recommendations once we get going.

Personally, I can’t wait until I have some time off work and I’m less busy, so I can stoke up the fire and finally get to spend a few days chillaxing in front of the TV. Not much longer now…
