I.e. What this #StreamTeam family has been watching on Netflix, even though it’s Lent and we should be screen-free.
“Keeping It Real” Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for our streaming service in exchange for these monthly reviews. All opinions, however, are my own.
The truth: In a perfect world and better family, we would have spent our Lent playing board games by candlelight. I’ve always wanted to do that, you know? Go electricity-free after sundown for Lent and really hunker down in Spirit during this penitential season.
The even harder truth: We’re not even close to being that family. We need our screen time because we need to stay sane.
Plus it’s the least we can do to check out new shows, because the good folks at Netflix have asked that I do so, and they send my kids toys to
bribe encourage them.
Cool toys, according to my 6-year-old son.
Toys that are meant to prompt viewings of LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One.
(“Keeping It Real” Disclosure Number II: My kids prefer LEGO: Legends of Chima. They really really like Legends of Chima.)
As for John and me, we prefer shows that are a little less animated and have a bit more grit…
…and as big big fans of Breaking Bad, we devoured Better Call Saul.
Please PLEASE get Season II, Netflix!
(Not that we’re, like, desperate or anything.)
How about you, dear online friend? What are your kids watching on Netflix these days? What are you devouring?
