The Netflix Queen

Y'all the amount of Netflix that I've been watching lately is ungodly. Studying at the house? Late at night can't sleep? Roomate's trying to nap? You can bet that in any of those situations I'll have Netflix up and running in the background.

What have I been watching lately? Television series that just got updated, documentaries I've been meaning to watch for quite some time, and a lot of movies.

It's been a while since I watched 30 Rock, so I figured it was about time to watch the latest season that they put on Netflix. I love 30 Rock so much it's not even funny. The characters are hysterical and downright absurd at some points, but that's what makes it such a joy to watch.

If I could trade places with anyone from this show, just for a day, it would probably be with Liz Lemon. In some ways I'll sometimes joke that my life relates to Liz's life more than anyone else's. But let's be honest, I'm no where near as whitty or as quick on the draw as she is most times.

Up next, Gossip Girl. Y'all, I watched the last season on Nextflix, 24 episodes, each at 45ish minutes long, in THREE DAYS. I'm sorry, what? You could say that I accomplished nothing of purpose in those three days, and  you would probably be right.

I'm such a sucker for Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester). I love her, everything about her; the way she carries herself, to the way that she dresses and how she acts. While she acts like the tough Queen B that she is/can be, she's also very vulnerable. She lets her love of Chuck sometimes be her greatest downfall, but it can also be her greatest success.

Just don't mention Serena to me, I strongly dislike her, and the character.

And lastly but certainly not least, I watched a documentary called Being Elmo. Now, I'm not going to lie to you, I'm kind of terrified of puppets, but I grew up watching Sesame Street and The Muppet's.

It was actually kind of amazing to see how he began his career working with puppets and with Elmo. It's a story that anyone kind find some kind of relation to, his hard work and dedication really paid off and to see everything play out on film is just amazing.

I found myself tearing up at some of the scenes, especially when dealing with his family. His family is one of the most supportive families I've seen and it's truly inspiring. I have so much respect for him, and all the puppeteers who came before him.

You can see what else I've been watching recently here, here and here!

What have you been watching recently? Anything you can recommend?

  1. On Netflix I'm currently watching Arrested Development but catching up on Gossip Girl is also a goal since I haven't seen it since moving to Germany. However, with fall TV shows starting my Netflix viewing has decreased significantly. Homeland - best show ever.


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
