Netflix has been in the news a lot lately.
Rather than explain all the headlines and coverage, I want to tell you about something no one else is talking about…
I’M USING NETFLIX TO TIME TRAVEL.
More on that in a second. They have also decided to put up a video (see below) WITH ME AND FINN ON THE NETFLIX!
To watch this on Netflix, go here!
This summer Netflix launched “Netflix Families” — a destination in their service dedicated entirely to helping parents with simple how-to guides about product features and tips for their streaming service. It’s like a parent for parents who watch streaming movies and TV. I have no idea why they asked me to be in it, but I can only imagine it had something to do with how utterly frigging cute my son is. He is an unstoppable force for cuteness and the use of the word “awwww.”
But let’s chat more specifically about the radness they’re offering…
Could it be true? I’ve been using profiles for our Netflix account for a couple weeks now. Separating out my taste menus from my son’s has been MAGICAL. And no, I don’t want to talk about why I chose a unicorn for an avatar.
Netflix has tons of old school programming. Stuff I used to watch as a kid. One of my favorite things to do is trying out old cartoons to see which ones Finn will go for. Here are a few I’ve tried: “Charlie Brown” (multiple), “The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!”, “Dumbo”, and “Care Bears the Movie.” I LOVED THE CARE BEARS, OKAY? CAN WE NOT MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF IT?
Then, when the kids go to sleep, you can rock out cartoons you’d never want the kids to watch! A few of my jams are “Robot Chicken” and “Archer” — yeah, my toddler will not being watching those any time soon. Unless by “toddler,” you mean me…
If you’re like me, you need to catch up on all the TV programs you never get to watch. Ever. Because you’re always doing all the things. So, instead of relying on a DVR and waiting forever for shows to air, I use Netflix to help me move forward from the past to the present. Apparently, Netflix is available on over 1100 devices and 84% of households have at least three devices in their houses that can play Netflix. So… here’s my list of shows I’m catching up on: “Doctor Who”, “Parenthood”, “Breaking Bad”, “The Walking Dead” and “Mad Men”.
I’m calling you out, Doc Brown. DeLoreans are rad, but you can go flux your capacitor. I’ve got my Netflix.

Disclosure: Netflix sponsored this post but does not endorse its use for time travel. All the opinions and statements made here were done under the influence of sleep deprivation, but that doesn’t mean they’re untrue. In fact, I feel like I am funniest when I’m sleepy. And the most truthful. Wait. I just told you a secret. Don’t tell anybody our secret. Okay? They paid for my travel, accommodations and for this post. Not for our utter insanity. You get that for free of charge! Feel free to email me questions about salami.
