We are big fans of Netflix in our house and have ditched cable TV in favour of using it.
My mum lives in rural Dorset and just before Christmas a faster broadband service became available, so they had a new router installed, which gave me the chance to introduce them Netflix too.
Over her birthday my Mum dropped numerous hints that she wanted to watch The Crown, a Netflix original series that follows the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.
Instead of buying a boxset, I decided to get them a Netflix Gift Card, which are available at many retail locations. Being new to Netflix and having not had an account before, they received a free month of service, in addition to the amount of the gift card. After the free month, Netflix will then start to deduct the monthly charge for their plan from their gift card balance giving them a whole year of TV.
After setting up their account and a brief training session, we left them to it.
Let’s just say the whole two series of The Crown were watched within a week!!
Mum is a binge watcher just like me!!
The problem is that now she has devoured The Crown, we need to suggest new things to watch and so far, our suggestions are not their cup of tea.
Hubby and I loved The Crown too, but also like our American TV shows like Designated Survivor, Jessica Jones, Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black. But after some dabbling into some of these series, they are not that keen.
This is where you come in………do you have Netflix?
Are there any, preferably British shows, that you recommend?
In other news there are some fabulous new additions coming to Netflix for the month of January, including ALL episodes of FRIENDS which are now streaming!!!!
I know my kids are very much looking forward to series 6 of the Adventures of Puss in Boots too.
So there you have it, some new recommendations for Netflix for this month, just for you!!
What series are you watching at the moment, or do you have one to recommend to my Mum?
