So Here Is What I Love About Netflix #StreamTeam {giveaway}

11 Flares 11 Flares ×

All the TV shows I loved as a kid are on there!

I suppose ‘oldies’ is a relative term.  But being an 80’s baby means I grew up with some fan-freekin-tastic TV shows.  Epic…no, Legendary shows that to this day still make me spit milk out-my nose laughing. Every evening around dinner time,  The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was on our screen…when I was younger than that, it was Diff’rent Strokes or The Facts of Life.

ya take the good – ya take the bad – ya take’em both and there you have the facts of life…the facts of life”  You’re welcome.

What I really loved about my childhood TV watching was Saturday mornings.  Remember when cartoons were only on one day a week?  And if someone else (old than you) wanted the TV then you lost your cartoons for a whole week!

When my siblings and I were young, we spent many Friday nights at my grandmother’s house.  My mother worked Thursday-Sunday, and Friday night was great for tips when you’re a waitress.  So our Saturday mornings were spent at my nans house.  And one Saturday morning after a night spent with nan, The Smurfs blew up her TV.

Yes, you read that right…The Smurfs blew up my grandmother’s TV.  70141972_3758686

It was super early one morning.  My sister and I had spent the night at my grandmother’s house and my sister woke up super early.  She was watching The Smurfs on my grandmother’s old floor model TV…you remember the kind with dials and no remote control…the one that only had 13 possible channels and the outer case was made of wood.  Well,  my grandmother and I were sleeping the morning away when my panic struck sister came barreling in the bedroom.  Smoke had begun rolling out from behind the big ol’ Television.  The Smurfs had exploded the TV!

That old floor model never worked again.  And shortly after that incident my grandmother had a new fandangled TV made from black plastic…which quickly found a home, on top of the old floor model tv.  I wish I had a picture of my grandmother’s living room to share with all of you.  I can still see it clearly in my mind to this day.

Times have changed.

And so has how we watch TV.

Now, we can watch what we want to watch, when we want to watch it, and where ever we want to watch it at!

I have the power!!! (ahem…He-Man reference)

No longer do I have to wait until Saturday to watch cartoons!  Now I can snuggle up with my boys and watch old episodes of Spiderman and He-Man (Masters of the Universe).  And they can comment on the CGI or lack there of, ’cause all nine-year old boys know what CGI is… oy. And together we can enjoy the oldies and build a few memories sitting on the sofa eating popcorn on a rainy day.

And you can too.

You can enjoy shows when you want to watch them with Netflix.  On your hand-held device (over wifi or data), on your gaming system, on your computer or using a streaming device like Roku.  There are many ways to enjoy Netflix. And I’ve got one better.
