Family Movie Night is Covered Thanks to Netflix

For the most part, my family and I binge shows on Netflix. I'm currently re-watching Gotham with my 14-year-old son Jason, because he wanted to start watching it. My wife and I recently re-watched the first season of Stranger Things with our other son Ryan, because he really wanted to start watching it before season two aired. So yeah, in our house Netflix isn't just for binge watching... it's for binge re-watching. Netflix is also more than just a slew of great TV programming, both original (Orange is the New Black! Daredevil! Jessica Jones!) and from other networks (Walking Dead! Gotham! The Flash!). It also has a ton of great movies ...

Countdown the New Year with Netflix

Life is funny. When our kids were younger, they'd beg and plead to stay up until midnight on New Year's Eve. We'd put them to bed early and then enjoy the ball drop on our own. These days? Yeah, I'm lucky if I'm not passed out on the couch by 10:30 on a regular weeknight. I honestly have no idea when Ryan (he's 12 now) heads off to bed. I don't even know which side of midnight he falls asleep. So this year, when New Year's Eve comes around, we'll certainly be pushing hard to keep our eyes open as we countdown to 2018. But for you parents out there with little ones ...

Marvel’s The Punisher Kills on Netflix

No offense to ol' Horn Head, but The Punisher was easily the best part of Daredevil Season 2. Which is why it was cruel and unusual punishment to have to wait this long for the gun-toting Frank Castle to get his own series on Netflix. Yep, The Punisher is back, full guns a'blazin' in his own Marvel series on Netflix that ties right into the same TV universe filled with DD, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Elektra and the Immortal Iron Fist. Only he's got no powers. No radar sense. No impenetrable skin. No resurrections, unless you count the number of times the world thought Frank Castle was dead. Picking up straight from ...

10 Scary Netflix Shows I Need to Binge Right Now

Halloween is easily one of my favorite holidays of the year. No offense, Arbor Day. Now I'm not one to love horror movies. I actually don't really even like them. I am, however, slowly changing my tune over time. Sure I can enjoy a good Nightmare on Elm Street flick but it's the supernatural dream stuff that intrigues me, not the blood, gore and scares. I do love a good horror comedy (horredy?) like the Evil Dead series and even Scream. But straight-up slasher or torture films don't do it for me one bit. These days, though, my 12-year-old son Ryan is really interested in seeing some horror movies. So I'm probably going ...

Leave it to Netflix to Come Up with Birthdays On-Demand

I am so spoiled with Movies On-Demand these days, that I pretty much expect instant access to any movie or TV show ever made at any point. It's just crazy convenient. But have you ever thought about Birthdays On-Demand? Yeah, as a parent, I can most definitely appreciate anything that will help make birthdays for my kids that much easier and more special for them. I remember birthday parties when I was a kid. I didn't go to the movies, take everyone bowling or even have a pool party. Nope. What we did was just have a lot of fun around my house. Mom would create a ton of games for us ...

Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I'm first in line. And when Netflix's amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I'm screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be honest, they kind of are. I've never been a diehard Defenders fan but always dug them when they showed up in other comics. The Avengers were the A-List team, headquartered in NYC and fighting Earth-shattering foes. The ...
