Netflix Nation: Population Me (and a few others)

When I decided to sign up for Netflix I was sure it would be nice. At first I used it once in a while and shortly after joining my brother asked to be added and I obliged. He pays for his half and watches way more shows than I do. But I must say it was this past Summer (August) that I went in full throttle.

My first full on binge watching was Dragons: Race to the Edge. Sure it took a week or so for me to watch all thirteen episodes but that was a big deal for me. Plus I gave it five stars and can't wait for more. DreamWorks did a fine job with creating this movie franchise and Netflix is definitely doing well by jumping on the boat with the series aspect.

P.S.: While writing this (I kid you not) the mail man arrived with four books for me. One of them was...wait for it. How to Train your Dragon (Book 1) by Cressida Cowell. I kid you not.



Also I watched the movie Sinister. That creeptastic movie left me with not only chills but a new book idea.


Then I rewatched Rise of the Guardians and started on Netflix's Daredevil (which I am yet to finish watching the season). Then I peeked at a few other shows and fell back into habit of looking at shows but never really finishing them.

THEN

SEPTEMBER 

CAME

I watched the four episodes of Season 4 of Once Upon a Time which I had missed on television in one day. 




Then I saw that Season 2 of Marvel's Agents of Shield had arrived. 



The world turned upside down. Okay, just mine...maybe.



I started on Sunday September 6 with one episode. Monday and Tuesday was two each. Wednesday I went off the deep end.




I Sheena-kay Graham on September 9, 2015 watched eleven episodes in one day. This is a problem.


Thursday I watched the rest with the exception of Episode 12 which I skipped over on Wednesday because it was among the few that I had watched on television for this Season (like 3 or 4) and rewatched that one on Friday.

Saturday I watched a part of the movie The Age of Adeline, Episode One of Charmed, five episodes of Netflix's Mako Mermaids series and Episode One of Misfits (a series were five people doing community service get struck during a storm and gain powers). The last I really enjoyed a whole lot and plan to watch all three seasons. 



Sunday I peeked at Netflix's Narcos but stopped because I was busy helping around the house.

Monday and Tuesday was Netflix free! Yay I broke the addiction.



Today I am writing, doing a few other things and thinking about what I will watch later on Netflix. Just no more unplanned crazed binges. Plus I wrote this post today and will post as soon as I am done. I guess that sounds hurried but I have been thinking about posting about my Netflix experience for a while.

So far I am loving Netflix. It gives you a wide array of shows to watch and rewatch at your leisure without worrying about a crazy cable bill and with a tablet I can just charge and move around with, it is also easy on the electric bill as well. 

There you have it folks. So do you have Netflix or some other service that is similar? Enjoy your day everyone and much love.

  1. Welcome to my world! NetFlix (and Amazon and Hulu) is the best way to binge watch shows. No waiting until next week. You can see it all in a row.
    And of all their shows, Daredevil has been the best so far.

  2. Nope, we don't have Netflix and it probably wouldn't work here since we're used to torrenting stuff for free :) we're irreverent like that. Have ADELINE downloaded and ready for watching!

    1. I have been weening mysef off that method. But fell back with the new Fantastic Four. No way was I paying for that and I just wanted to see how bad it was.

  5. *sigh* Netflix - my love/hate relationship. I'm running through season 4 of Once Upon a Time Right now, and somehow have managed to keep myself to 1-2 shows a day. Usually, if I like a series, I watch it to the bitter end (kind of like a good book that can't be laid down). Luckily, it only happens once a month or so otherwise my family might take my netflix away...

    1. Ha! Ha! A family intervention on Netflix addiction would be no laughing matter. So looking forward to Season 5 of that show.

    1. That show is really good. A little slow in some parts first season but season 2 is a true winner.

  11. Oh, what a fun post!! I was nodding and then laughing along as you discovered the wonderful world of Disney :)

    Netflix rocks - but you're right to give yourself at least a couple of days off a ...... year? Decade?
