LIFESTYLE // The Netflix Tag

Friday, 12 June 2015

Hey there!
I got tagged by the lovely Danielle at A Shi...pload of Polish in one of my favourite tag posts of recent - the Netflix tag! I have been taking advantage of Netflix this year due to it being cheaper in Canada ($7 and the CAD is 1.8 - £1 so it's an utter bargain!) and as a result productivity has decreased. Unfortunately I have cancelled my subscription after this month so I think this will be a nice commemorative post (because that is obviously needed).



All Time Favourite
Honestly, I use Netflix as a way of watching old childhood films that I would be embarrassed to buy in a shop. I'd say on the British version my top two would be The Last Song and The Lizzie McGuire Movie. I know - how embarrassing!

Current Addiction
Fortunately I have just finished an addiction with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I absolutely adored that show but it was only 8 or so episodes long. I need a new season ASAP! I chain watched Once Upon a Time for such a long time. I think I got through 2 and a half seasons in a month? Unfortunately I watched too much, way too quickly and I cannot sit and watch it anymore. It was so good as well!


Wishlist

I do wish the British Netflix had all of the Disney films like in the US. I wouldn't mind it also having The Notebook. I have bought that DVD for so many people as gifts, I just can't bear to buy another copy!

Pet Peeve
It's so annoying when they remove films/series! I really think there should be a countdown stating how many days it has left. I remember starting a series, getting half way through and it being taken down. Such a pain!

Oh, and you cannot forget the whole 'do you wish to continue?' screen. Yes, I know I am making questionable life choices Netflix but you are a website and have absolutely no right to judge okay?

Marathon Essentials
Food and plenty of it! From popcorn to sweets and cake - I cannot binge watch anything without a tactical snack pile at the end of my bed. A cat is optional but preferred.

You Should Watch
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt - written by Tina Fey (who does have a cameo!) and utterly hilarious.
Austenland - A middle aged woman goes to England to immerse herself in old English traditions (which may involve lots of actors). It's cringey but so hilarious!
Dance Academy - again, it's a little cringey but made me want to dance all over again. At only 30 minutes an episode, it's so easy to watch for hours.
Chicago - need I say more?


I now tag:

Megan at London Callings
Emily at EmsAlice
Jess at Jess Will

and of course anyone else who wants to do this tag! Let me know if you do this post - I'd love to get some new Netflix recommendations!

  1. I don't have Netflix anymore as I get REALLY picky about what I want to commit to watching on there! But yes, I agree that they should have a countdown thing until they take things down.

    Really need to watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt...everyone I know who has watched it, has loved it!

    1. I got a little bit fed up of nothing new coming on. It's going to be at least a year to a new season of Kimmy so I may have to get it for a month some time in the future!

  2. You're gonna hate me, I have never ever used netflix! I definitely feel like I'm missing out. I will make sure to try it this year though, I feel as if I am SO out of the loop with programmes! I'm not really a TV person but I'll definitely make a conscious effort to be ;) xx

  3. I just cancelled my Netflix subscription after getting fed up with the same old shows. I wish they'd put more of what's on the US version onto the UK one.

    P.S. Just found your blog and love it! Following on Bloglovin'.

    1. I really do wish it was updated more often! It did get so boring after a while!

  4. I wish they also warned users when they were going to remove a show. It sucks when they change something I've been watching. We don't have as many choices here in Canada as the USA either, but it's getting better.

    1. The Canadian Netflix is a little bit of a mix between the American and UK ones but did get boring quite quickly! I only had it in the end because it was cheaper than back home!

    1. I think it took me 2 days. I'd do a couple of hours of revision and think KIMMY TIME. It's just so good!

    1. It's great to see what others love on Netflix. I watched a few extra films that I didn't think I'd like and actually loved due to other posts!
