I’ve talked about Netflix before on my blog here so it probably comes as no surprise that I really love the website. Subscribing was one of the best things I did as far as entertainment so today I’m going to share my top 5 things I love about Netflix!
1. Watching old shows for nostalgia.
Charmed, Pokêmon, Buffy, there’s a bunch of shows on Netflix that I used to watch when I was a kid but the thing is that I never regularly watched them enough to get the overarching storyline- so now I can! I think you get a lot more out of shows when you watch them in order.
2. The app.
I watch a lot of TV when I’m doing menial tasks. If I’m tidying or cleaning, I like having something I can glance at every now and again and listen to so I don’t get super bored. If I’m editing pictures for the blog or something else that requires the entire screen of my laptop, then my phone is right next to me keeping me entertained.
3. Original series.
Has anyone not watched Orange is the New Black at this point? If not, you’re missing out. It has one of the best diverse female-led cast I’ve ever seen. House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, BoJack Horseman, season 4 of Arrested Development and The Killing. And of course, they show no signs of slowing down. Personally I’m really excited to see what they do with the Marvel Universe when it comes to Daredevil and AKA Jessica Jones.
4. The price and quality.
Yes, you can find pretty much any show online for free. But the quality is straight up awful. £5.99 a month is, for me, worth not having to find decent links and figure out who that blur is. I honestly can’t remember the last time I watched TV on my actual TV either so when I have my own place I’d rather just have Netflix.
5. Movie nights.
Having friends in different countries is really hard and sometimes you just wish you could hang out together and watch a movie. Well, it’s not like Netflix is a free teleportation device but with Skype it makes a passable version. You can’t share popcorn but you can share laughs, tears, and jump scares!
