Disclaimer: Let me say, straight up, that Netflix have been extremely kind to me. They’ve invited me to be a part of their Stream Team (yeah, baby!), which includes a 12 month Netflix subscription, a mini iPad with a cute squishy cover and my very own Netflix mug. I am not obliged to nor do I get paid to write about Netflix. If and when I do write about Netflix, all opinions are my own.
The reason I said ‘yes’ when Netflix called (aside from it being completely awesome) is because I was already a Netflix convert. I already knew that I loved them and it wouldn’t be hard for me to share this love with you guys. This all came in very handy recently when I had the worst sickness I’ve had in years. The flu, it hit me hard! The proper flu. It really, really sucks. However! I got to binge on all my favourite shows, old a new. Here’s a few that you might enjoy too (warning, some trailers are not appropriate for kids).
Edge of Your Seat Thrills and Drama
Orange Is the New Black – Seasons 1 – 3
Ruby Rose makes an awesome addition to the Season 3 cast.

Kevin Spacey is truly disturbing in this political thriller.
The Fall – Seasons 1 and 2

The cops of the 99 Precinct will get you laughing. Total ‘junk food’ TV.
For the Kids
While I was laid out flat on the couch it sure did help that we could watch Netflix on our TV, iPad and mobile phone. It helped keep the kids occupied while I recovered. Rocky loves Zack and Quack, Phineas and Ferb and Curious George. Pebble loves it all but this week she is enjoying Johnny Test, Dennis the Menace and Space Chimps.
Not to mention Dragons: Race to the Edge launches this week. We’re all looking forward to watching this one. Is anyone else glad to have kids just so they have an excuse to watch cool kids movies and shows? No? Just me? Ok, then.
Did you get hit by the flu this winter? Do you have Netflix? Why not!!!??
