I still write for Netflix, in case you were wondering.
No Netflix still hasn’t bought the rights to my screenplay, shocking really.
And neither Beverly Hills 90210 nor Mad About You is on Netflix yet.
I guess I don’t have half the pull I thought I did.
Need to work on that for 2018.
Shows I Watch on Netflix That Surprise Even Me
One Day at a Time– I watched the original version regularly as a child so I wasn’t sure I would like this one because I hate remakes. Ella and I got hooked on this show back in November and binge-watched the entire series in two days. I even cried during several episodes. Bonnie Franklin never had that effect on me, God rest her soul.
Disjointed– I love Kathy Bates, I love weed, and I love this show. It has a laugh track and I know a lot of people don’t like that. Umm all of the 80’s and 90’s comedies had one, so I don’t get the problem. Smoke some weed before you watch and maybe that will make it better.
Anything Bigfoot-It will probably come as a shock to you (or not) that I am obsessed with Bigfoot. I have been mystified since I was a child and once watched a documentary about all of the Bigfoot’s that lived in the Texarkana area of the US. Compelling TV at a young age that affected me for the rest of my television viewing days. Then one day over this past Christmas break, I get an email from Netflix notifying me that a show I might like is coming: Discovering Bigfoot.
I wish I could tell you how I honestly felt losing 20 minutes of my life after starting Discovering Bigfoot (I couldn’t finish it) but I won’t because I am a representative of the Netflix brand. But how could Netflix be so wrong about what they think I might like? As if to answer that question, Netflix sent me another email this week suggesting I should watch Wedding Crashers, so I realized they don’t have a pulse on me as a viewer.
Cheer Squad– I don’t know why I can’t stop watching. Maybe it’s the Canadian accents. Maybe it’s the freakish cheer stunts. Maybe Wedding Crashers IS right up my alley.
Home: Adventures with Tip and Oh- Ella got me hooked on this show and now I can’t stop watching. Do you ever get tired of the mindless cartoons your kids watch but you want to be present with them and watch alongside? Then you will love this refreshing change of pace. It makes me laugh really hard and now I am starting to use phrases like “I am seeings that I might be likings Wedding Crashers”.
That won’t make sense until you watch the show.
Shows that Give Me Hope That My Screenplay Will Happen
The Polka King– Something you don’t know about me is that I can’t stand Jack Black.
I can’t quite put my finger on it…..
Doesn’t he always look like he’s up to some skeevy sh#&?
Fun Mom Dinner– FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, CAN WE STOP MAKING MOVIES ABOUT MOMS LOOKING STUPID? That means you need to stop watching movies about moms looking stupid.
Video Game High School- Don’t send me hate email if you are a gamer and watch this. Also, don’t watch this.
Video Game High School- The Series– I guess someone must be watching this.
Shows I am Actually Excited About
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee- Mike and I spent a Friday night watching several episodes and have been hooked ever since. Each episode is only 15 minutes long (perfect for my television viewing attention deficit) and they are truly funny. Also, you will crave a cup of coffee during the show so maybe not watch it at 10 at night.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman– I have loved David Letterman since the 80’s and I was old enough (and sarcastic enough) to appreciate his humor. These interviews are worth adding to your list, especially his interview with Barack Obama. Side note- David Letterman looks like Bigfoot, which means we can get rid of Discovering Bigfoot.
I am currently a member of the Netflix Stream Team and have been for several years. They sent me a Roku and pay for my monthly subscription in return for honest reviews of their services.
