Netflix For Me


Each month I get a little email about what theme we Netflix stream-team members can post about. There is always a little craft or snack or something we can do with the family too if we want.  But this month is all about the momma, and I have to say it came at just the right time!

Cortney and I just finished season 1 of Breaking Bad this weekend. We are not binge-watchers, but we do take in a couple episodes a week. I know it goes on for four more seasons but I keep thinking, “oh they are done for this time!”  So good!

On my list to watch with Cortney next is Orange is the New Black. I just finished reading the book and I am excited to watch the fictionalized version of the book. Piper Kerman’s memoir was so good, but I know the show is more over-the-top.



Also on our list to watch is Freaks and Geeks. Our high school sociology classes watch this show and discuss it and the teachers are ALWAYS quoting it and talking about it in the lounge. Even though it’s only 18 episodes-long, I know I need to see it.


And lastly, one that will probably be more interesting to me than to Cort, I want to watch Call the Midwife. This might have to be my “daycare day” show. On the days the boys are in daycare, I might have to carve out some “me time” to watch a show just for me. When Eddie was a baby, I would binge watch all the episodes (and movies) of Sex and the City, I think it’s time I upgrade, yes?


While we LOVE Netflix for our kids (mine are watching Curious George as I type this), it’s fun to have some shows just for us adults too.

What else should be on my list?

As a member of the Stream Team I was provided with a Roku and a voucher to apply towards my Netflix account. I was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.


About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Love, love, love Call The Midwife. Have tissues handy.

    We are huge Doctor Who fans in our house. I’m also rather fond of Sherlock and Supernatural. Oh and my longest running favorite show is Psych. It’s great relaxation.

  2. Call the midwife is amazing!!! I am also in love now with Downtown Abbey.

  3. Loved Breaking Bad!! Netflix is great for me because I don’t have the cable channels in Canada that a lot of the really great shows are broadcast on: Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead, Wilfred, and Arrested Development to name a few.
    I really really enjoyed House of Cards too. First, Kevin Spacey: obviously. Also, Robin Wright is amazing. But it’s also interesting to learn about American politics.
    Right now we are actually watching The Amazing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone)

  4. Call the Midwife is fantastic and makes me tear up (if not a full blown cry) at least once an episode. You should also try Sherlock, House of Cards, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Chuck.
