Confession. Ryan and I have not been watching much TV lately. This is definitely not normal for us, but we are kind of in between binge watching series (nothing can replace The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and haven’t really jumped back in. I would love to say that instead we were spending more time looking lovingly in each other’s eyes or reading “War and Peace.” But in reality were more likely goofing off on Facebook (me) or playing Angry Birds (him- I can’t even).
I was crazy excited when I got my Stream Team email this week and saw that a new Netflix original was starting staring Kyle Chandler. You may recall that the hubby and I were OBSESSED with Friday Night Lights. Although it will be weird to see him as anyone other than Coach Taylor, I think the plot sounds really intriguing (although much darker than FNL).
Bloodline follows a family caught between the ugly truth and the terrible lie that covers it up – a storyline that conjured our friends at Variety to predict that, “.. those who give Bloodline a chance will, pretty quickly, find themselves hooked.
Um yes please.
Since one of the themes of Bloodline is lying, Netflix has put together a list of shows for all ages that address lying. Goodness knows my kids can never get the message too much that lying is wrong. Probably isn’t too bad for the adults to remember either.
For the little kids:
3. Veggie Tales in the House: S1E9, Lie-monade (have you checked these out on Netflix yet? we LOVE the Veggie Tales!!!)
For the big kids:
3. Spy School
4. Jessie: S1E14, World Wide Web of Lies (my kids love this show and it actually is pretty cute)
For the REALLY big kids:
3. The Bling Ring (this one looks totally fascinating)
4. Pretty Little Liars (along with Revenge, these seem like really good guilty pleasures)
What are you binge watching on Netflix these days? I need a new show!
