DVD Giveaway: Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” (US, Ends 10/2) #StreamTeam

Wow.  Just wow.  I started watching "The Walking Dead" on Netflix and couldn't stop!  The first few episodes were difficult to watch because of the carnage, but then I began to see through that to the characters.  The story is interesting, but it's the character development that pulls you in and won't let go. I am officially a "binge" addict.  I love discovering new shoes on Netflix and watching them in a row.  I've even found that shows I … [Read more...]

Binge Watching: Love It or Leave It? Netflix News! #StreamTeam

Standing up.... shuffling feet.... eyes downcast... making a confession... I love to binge watch tv shows.  There, I've said it.  Because I can't watch grown-up shows live with my daughter, I end up seeing shows during the day or late at night.  And often it's two or three weeks before I can catch a time to watch.  BUT, the advantage to that is I can watch more than one show at once - and I love it.  It's awesome to be able to move into the … [Read more...]

Netflix Titles to Promote Kindness and Acceptance

As you know, we are huge Netflix fans and this … [Read more...]
