Going Retro With Netflix – Giveaway Ends 5/13 #StreamTeam






I wish we had Netflix when I was a kid. We had to watch all our shows in real time with commercials and wait a week in between episodes. Our kids these days wouldn’t be able to stand it! Plus if we wanted a movie, we had to traipse to the video store to see if they even had it… and 9 times out of 10 the video was so old and used that the picture or sound was horrible. Don’t even mention the fact that we had to spend copious amounts of time rewinding the suckers!


Netflix is just awesome on so many levels! No waiting in line, no horrible picture and no waiting for a week to view the next episode! Netflix has a huge array of retro movies and tv shows from my childhood. I have been able to share old school Sesame Street and Jem  with my daughter, and Smurfs and Transformers with my sons.

Here are some fantastic retro movies and tv shows on Netflix that you might want to share with your kids:



For the big kids:

1. Saved by the Bell
2. The Baby-Sitters Club
3. Family Ties
4. Jem and the Holograms
5. The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries
