What I Watch On Netflix After The Kids Go To Bed

What started as a fun thing to check out when we had free time has now turned into an all out family obsession. I am, of course, talking about Netflix. Honestly, if it weren’t for sports, I don’t know that I would even have cable anymore because there is so much content for our whole family on Netflix that we are never without something to watch. As they have graciously asked me to be a part of their Stream Team, I thought I would use this month’s post to focus on the shows my wife and I watch after the kids have long gone to sleep. And I mean fast asleep because you don’t want them walking in during some of these shows…


Suits Netflix

Suits is your classic smart ass drama/comedy. It follows main characters and lawyers Harvey and Mike as they get into all kinds of trouble. The characters mesh perfectly, especially the dynamic between Harvey and Mike and there were very few episodes where I felt like the shtick was getting tired. Season 5 had been excellent so far and I hope the show lasts a long time as it is one of my all time favourites!

House of Lies

House of Lies Netflix

I just started this one last week on a recommendation from a friend and I was hooked immediately. This show is kind of like Suits, which explains why I loved it, except it is waaaaaay raunchier and foul mouthed. It follows a team of executives, led by Don Cheadle, and has a lot of smart comedy in it. There is also a lot of sex. A LOT. Definitely do not watch this with the kids anywhere nearby but definitely give it a test run because it is pretty funny.


Daredevil Netflix

What can I say? I’m a sucker for the superhero crazy that is going on right now. In my opinion, Daredevil is the best of all the superhero shows out there right now, and I’ve seen them all! The action seems so real and graphic, and the story is so dark that you can’t help but get sucked into it. Add in the fact that Vincent D’Onofrio is absolutely haunting as Daredevil’s main adversary and you’ll see why I’ve already watched the entire series twice.

Breaking Bad

I put this one off until after it had been over for a year. After the glowing reviews from all my friends I don’t know why I never watched it, to be honest, but I’m glad I finally did. I don’t know what more to say about it than to say that everyone was right. This is a must watch show no matter what kind of television you are into. I will also add that Better Call Saul, the spin-off show, was equally as brilliant.

Wet Hot American Summer

Wet Hot American Summer Netflix

I have to admit that I loved the original Wet Hot American Summer movie even though a lot of people I know thought it was ridiculous (not in a good way). Watching this series brought back a ton of great memories of the original movie and didn’t disappoint. I still can’t believe the entire original cast agreed to come back for this series. If you loved the movie, you will love this series.


Netflix Bloodline

Bloodline was a nice change of pace from the shows I normally watch and quickly became one of my favourites on Netflix. It is slow moving but the characters are so amazingly well written and acted that I got hooked immediately. I can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store of the Rayburn family.


Narcos Netflix

This show just launched on Netflix yesterday but I have been waiting impatiently for weeks. I have only seen the first two episodes but that was enough for me to know that I will be staying up late to get it done over the next couple nights. This show is based on the rise and fall of Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Drug Enforcement Agency agents hunting him.

Man, I hadn’t realized how much television I have been watching lately… Netflix has this feature that gives you like 15 seconds after one episode ends before the next one begins to decide if you want to watch more. I have such a hard time deciding what to do that I usually just keep watching until the TV breaks down. Life is hard.

Now it’s your turn! What do you watch on Netflix after the kids go to bed?!

Disclosure: I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team but that is only because I was already an addict of the system and begged them to take me on board…

Full House Netflix

My Family’s Netflix Streaming List – June Edition

So this Netflix thing is growing on me. As odd as it sounds, I think I was using it incorrectly when we first signed up a year ago. I’d watch the odd movie here or there but never really dug in and explored everything it had to offer. In the last few months my family has been going through the list of titles and picking out things we’d like to watch at some point. Slowly but surely we trying out new shows and I wanted to share what each of us are enjoying right now. Besides, the family that Netflixes together, stays together. Right??

Dad (That’s Me!) – Daredevil

It should be noted that I am a full on superhero/comic nerd, so I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this new Netflix original version of Daredevil. Man, did it ever blow my mind! I rarely feel like a show is perfectly executed but this is the closest thing I have ever seen to that. Vincent D’Onofrio’s, Wilson Fisk character, will leave you with chills running down your spine!

Daredevil Netflix

Mom – Bloodline

This is one that I started without my wife and then felt guilty about it because it was so good. After we rewatched the first episode, she was hooked and we finished the whole season in less than two weeks. This show takes family disfunction to a new and exciting level! I have no idea how they are going to top what they did in Season 1 but I am really looking forward to it.

Bloodline Netflix

7 Year Old Son – Beyblade (All of them!)

My son doesn’t watch a lot of TV but he is addicted to these Beyblade shows on Netflix. If you have a young boy you will no doubt be feeling the Beyblade craze right now. I have no idea what happened as Beyblades had all but disappeared from existence, only to come back with a vengeance and take over our whole street! I’ve sat with him and watched the Beyblade shows and I have to admit that they are pretty cool.

Beyblade Netflix

5 Year Old Daughter – LEGO Friends

We started my daughter with Barbie’s Life in the Dreamhouse but as soon as she saw the LEGO Friends show, she was hooked. True to 5 year old fashion, we have watched the same episodes multiple times in a row and she never seems to tire of it. It’s almost like she thinks there is going to be a different outcome one of these times…

LEGO Friends Netflix

Bonus Show! – Full House

Last but not least, the original episodes of Full House have graced the Netfix platform and we have it slated to show the kids in the next week or so. I have no idea how it is going to hold up but the kids are starting to enjoy more than just cartoons, so I’m hopeful that we can share a bit of our youth with them!

Full House Netflix

That’s what we are streaming this month. How about you? Are you a Netflix subscriber? If so, what are you binging on at the moment?!

Netflix Lies

Netflix Is Filled With Lies

Link bait is also a form of lying, isn’t it? Well, now that I have you here let me explain myself. I recently agreed to sign on with Netflix to be a part of their Stream Team, which means that every month I will be talking about the shows my family is watching and sharing some of Netflix’s suggestions with you.

My first month happened to be an eventful one as I had the chance to pre-screen a few episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil and then proceeded to watch the entire 13 episode season in under 4 days… If you have been on the fence about this show, it is seriously time to hop off and watch it. It is incredibly dark and violent, which was actually a plus when compared to some of the other comic book shows on cable right now.

My wife and I also just started watched a show called White Collar and definitely recommend it so far, especially if you enjoy watching something like Suits. And speaking of Suits, I want to say that my wife and I are patiently watching for Season 4 to arrive on Netflix but there is no patience in this house…other than with our kids, of course.

As far as lying goes, Netflix has you covered with classics like Liar, Liar and one of my personal favourites, Mean Girls. I’ve also been told that the next show on our watch list, Bloodline, centers around lies and we can’t wait to hit it up!

That’s it for this month but stay tuned as I will be sharing more of my family’s favourite Netflix titles in the months to come! Stream on!
