Highlight Reel: Netflix


So I have possibly the biggest first world problem of all time. I’ve watched Netflix. At least the parts of Netflix that are worth watching. Last week we ran a story on what NOT to watch on Netflix. This week, I bring you a highlight reel. The anticipated new seasons, the classics, the shows with new seasons, and the best of.


These movies and shows can be watched again, and again for sentimental value. These flicks should also probably be on your “I need to watch that” list if you haven’t seen them. So make a mental note that you can either re-watch or watch for the first time, classics like: “The Breakfast Club,” “Footloose” (the 2011 version), “The Boy in Striped Pajamas,” and “Into The Wild.”


Years of babysitting have also taught me that Netflix has quite the Disney selection. (Babysitting is a great excuse for that right?) I’m not going to  lie, my favorites include: “The Sword in the Stone,” “Hercules,” “Holes” and “The Aristocats.” Everyone needs to get in touch with their inner-child sometimes, and to be completely honest, nothing makes me feel better than singing every musical number in “Hercules” off-key, at the top of my lungs.


A quick update of some of the more popular shows will let you know that, “Breaking Bad” is now entirely on Netflix, “House of Cards” released their second season, and “Orange Is The New Black” announced their season two (finally).


If you’re like me, and you’ve already watched your way through those consider checking out “The League,” a semi-improved show about a circle of friends and their fantasy football league. You can also try out “Bates Motel,” I just started and I think I like where the plot line is headed. And creepy, murder shows being my secret forte, “The Jeffrey Dahmer Files” are on there as well, and that makes me ridiculously happy.

So there you have it. The best, the classics, and a general update. From one Netflix Guru to another.
