N is for Netflix

Todays post is bought to you by the letter N and the topic Netflix!

I don’t really watch tv, I haven’t seemed to even switch the box on for such a long time so when I got an offer sent through to my inbox for a 30 day free trial of Netflix I didn’t really see the point in signing up for it.  This was 4 months ago and I now subscribe to the service monthly.  So, “what changed?” I can hear you all ask… well, one evening I didn’t really have anything to do and fancied sitting and watching something, anything and couldn’t find anything that I fancied watching on “normal” telly so I had a look on-line at what I could find on Netflix, saw that they still had Gilmore Girls on there (which I had watched parts of previously) and decided that I would use my free trial to watch the show from the beginning, then the plan was to cancel.

I watched the whole of Gilmore Girls (all 7 Series, 153 episodes) and then I saw that they had an extr a seriesfor the Gilmore Girls called A Year in the Life.  By this point I was nearing the end of my free trial so decided to stick with it and finish watching this show.

In work one day I overheard someone talking about The Umbrella Academy (on Netflix) so I then thought I’d watch the first episode to see what it was like… I was hooked and have since completed the first series and am anxiously awaiting the next series.

And now I have watched the following…

  • Pretty Little Liars
  • Orphan Black
  • Black Mirror
  • Consumed
  • Girlboss

And I have a to watch list that keeps on growing steadily….

What series have you watched on Netflix?  Do you have any suggestions of things I can add to my list of things to watch?

      1. Ooo nice! In one place I was living there was a tv and a chrome cast- which connected to chrome on my laptop and played whatever I was watching onto the tv. That was great!

  2. I only got Netflix last month. I’d been meaning to for ages. One thing I wanted to see was Gilmore Girls Year in the Life. I had seen the series in real time when it broadcast initially, so I really wanted to see the “sequel”. I just finished it off yesterday.

    I saw Pretty Little Liars and Orphan Black in broadcast, too. (Pretty Little Liars has a spin off airing now which I haven’t gotten into.)

    1. How did you find the Gilmore Girls Year In the Life? I’m not sure I enjoyed it as much as the series….

      I watched Gone Girl tonight, that was a really good film!!! Xxx
