Netflix and Chilly Outside

Hi everyone! It's hard to believe we are already halfway through January! Sorry there wasn't a blog post last week, I was under the weather. 

Since, it's currently under 15 degrees, I'm snuggled under a blanket scrolling through Netflix. I know a lot of people are always looking for something new to watch, especially during the colder months when we are trying to stay warm....so that inspired me to make a blog post with some recommendations! 

When I watch TV, it's usually because I want to relax. So below you will find comedies and dramas. I don't watch too many action based or "scary" shows. Every now and then I will watch Law and Order SVU though... :P


Netflix Recommendations: 



 


Grace and Frankie -

This show is a Netflix original and stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. How could this show not be a hit? I admit to binge watching the first season in a day and a half. The series starts off with two women in their seventies finding out that both of their husbands are leaving them- for each other.  It also stars Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston, and Brooklyn Decker. The second season is being released in May. I highly recommend giving this show a shot. 



The Carrie Diaries -

This one is for my fashion and Sex in the City friends. If you haven't already seen this show, you definitely should. The Carrie Diaries is a prequel to the TV series, Sex and the City and also is a book series. The plot is a young Carrie Bradshaw in the 1980's navigating high school as well as making her dreams of New York a reality. I'm currently watching this show over. 


Fuller House -

For those of you who haven't heard, Netflix has come up with a spin off/reboot of Full House. It'll premiere on Netflix at the end of February. Most of the cast will be returning. I'm pretty excited for this! 

Oldest of the Tanner girls, D.J. is now a mother of three and a widow. It becomes too much for her to handle, so she requests the help of her best friend Kimmy Gibbler and sister Stephanie. 


Jane The Virgin -

I initially wasn't sure I would like this show. I thought it was a little cheesy, but I soon got addicted. The series has been nominated for many awards and has a really great cast. Season one is currently available on Netflix while season two is airing on The CW.  Taking place in Miami, the show follows the life of a young Latina, Jane who is a waitress at a hotel. She's saving herself for marriage, but during a doctor appointment is mistakenly artificially inseminated. You can only imagine the chaos that ensues. 


Young and Hungry -

Young and Hungry is set in San Francisco. The main character Gabi is a food blogger who is hired to work as the personal chef to a wealthy, young entrepreneur. This show is a great fast pace comedic sitcom. Emily Osment and Kym Whitley are among the cast. 


What is your favorite show currently? And any Netflix recommendations for me? Leave a comment below.  

Until next time!

    1. It still makes me sad that The Carrie Diaries was canceled. :/ I bought the books but they're a lot different than the show.

  2. Interesting & informative, well written blog. However our taste in programs may not coincide, & we would need 2 tv's.
