Netflix Catch Up – Everything From Grace & Frankie To The Smurfs…

I love Rom Coms. Can’t beat them. Especially when the Hubby goes out and the kids are in bed and I have the remote to myself. I’ll pour a glass of wine, make some popcorn and slap on a Rom Com.  This  month I enjoyed ‘And So It Goes’ starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Michael Douglas plays a fairly obnoxious self absorbed realtor who looks to his neighbour, Diane Keaton, for help when his estranged son leaves him in charge of his granddaughter that he never knew existed. It’s your typical rom com and you can guess how it all ends! I enjoyed it though. I love Diane Keaton.  […]

The People v. OJ Simpson – Netflix

In the space of about 3 days I’ve absolutely binge watched The People v. O.J. Simpson on Netflix.  I’d seen the trailer on the Netflix twitter page and thought it looked good.  An ‘American crime story’ would never have been my thing before. If I just came across this on “normal tv” I honestly probably wouldn’t watch it. That’s what I love about Netflix. It opens me up to shows I usually wouldn’t watch.  In my last Netflix post I said the same thing about Bloodline. Wouldn’t normally have gone for it but it’s bloody brilliant! Roll on Season 3 (and more drooling over Kyle Chandler!)  Anyway, presumably everyone and anyone […]

Bloodline – My Latest Netflix Obsession…

  I’ve been looking for a new series to watch on Netflix after my Gilmore Girls binge before Christmas, and I’ve found it with Bloodline. I won’t lie. House of Cards lost my interest slightly. Season 3 just wasn’t doing it for me. I still want to get back into it, and I will. I’ve heard great things about Season 4, but I just felt like taking a break from it for a while, especially over Christmas (It’s not very festive is it!) So we spent December mainly having a laugh  watching The Royle Family! It was actually my Mam who recommended Bloodline! She was explaining what it was about […]

Netflix – Gilmore Girls, House Of Cards & The Siege Of Jadotville…

Last week my Dad was up staying overnight with us and he mentioned that he’d heard The Siege Of Jadotville was really good and that he was going to figure out how to “download it.”  Like super girl in a cape – okay, like a daughter with a remote and a Netflix account – I said “Sure I can stick it on now if you want on Netflix”  So we sat down and watched The Siege Of Jadotville and I have to say, it was fantastic. It was one of those things I had said “I must watch that” but never got around to it, so I was glad my […]

House Of Cards – Our Latest Netflix Show…

So, in true style of getting into a show miles after everyone else, we started House Of Cards. Oh My God I love it! We both do!  I was sceptical. The fact that it’s a Political Drama made me think this wasn’t going to be for me. I’ve mentioned in my previous Netflix post how I like fun shows and don’t particularly like anything dark or overly serious.  I tend to know by the end of the first episode of a show if it’s going to be a winner and I knew after the pilot of House Of Cards.  If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the gist of it. […]

What We’re Watching On Netflix…

  So anyone following me on Facebook or Twitter will know that I was Gilmore Girls nuts over the last few months. I was obsessed. I watched it so much that I was nearly relieved when I finished!! I loved it and I could definitely watch it all again some time. If you’ve just started it or are in the middle of it I’m so jealous. If you haven’t watched it you should defo put it on your list! I’m dying for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. Can’t wait!    I got back into Grace and Frankie after Gilmore Girls and absolutely loved it. All the characters worked brilliantly […]

Our Netflix Picks This Summer…

So I mentioned before how I’m now a shiny new Stream Team Blogger for Netflix. Basically in exchange for a subscription I’ll write about shows and movies we’re all enjoying from time to time. Not a real hardship 😉 I was even lucky enough to be brought on a trip to London with them in July (you can read about that here if you want!) I’ve pretty much been in a Gilmore Girls bubble for the last month.. I’m already on Season 4 and I’m literally having dreams about Luke’s diner! I can’t get enough of it! I was a fan when it first came out but I definitely love it […]

A Netflix Trip To London…

Being a Stay At Home Mammy isn’t always glamorous. There’s weeks on end where I don’t seem to see anything other than the 4 walls of my house. Even my dreams have become boring. I had a dream one night that I forgot to put on a wash. A new level of “Absolute Loser” for me. However, thanks to my trusty blog, there are glimmers of excitement, and this week I was lucky enough to be invited to London for a Netflix event with some other Mammy & Daddy bloggers.  The bloggers who went are all part of the Netflix Stream Team, which basically means watching TV and then writing […]
