Disclosure: I’m a member of the #Netflix #StreamTeam and receive occasional product and early access to programming. But every word I write is my own.
Oakland, California, where I live, is blessed with some of the greatest weather on the planet. Okay, so we’ve had a pretty nasty drought for the past few years, but we’ve had dry spells before and we’ll have ‘em again. Anyway, we’re getting slammed with rain, which is a good thing. But I’m not complaining about the weather. Quite the opposite. In fact, I’m watching all that east-coast snow and feeling a little envious. I know blizzards can be life threatening and are no fun for the people they actually affect, but from out here on the west coast, there’s something almost magical about the prospect of being snowed in (assuming, of course, we’ve got plenty of food and the power’s not down).
What it comes down to is that I could really use a long break, one that would give me a no-guilt excuse to just hang out with the family, talking, reading, playing, and catching up on some of our favorites on Netflix—or discovering some new ones.
Here, in no particular order, is what’s on our must-watch list—and by “our” I mean mine and my 12-year-old daughter’s. There will undoubtedly be some that we’ll watch together, a few outbursts (from each of us) of “how can you watch that crap,” and plenty of dismissing something as “crap” but then creeping back into the room and standing silently in the doorway watching it anyway.
