Just When Families Need It Most #StreamTeam #NowOnNetflixCA

‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, no child was complaining, not even a spouse. The gifts were unwrapped and toys played with care, while parents reveled in the peace and quiet in the air… Well, that lasted 10 minutes.

Netflix understands it’s not long before the first “I’M BORED” is uttered. That’s why on Dec 23rd, Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television will treat families to 13 hours of adventure, suspense and limitless imagination with the all-new seriesDreamWorks Trollhunters, from renowned director Guillermo del Toro.

For parents in need of help filling family downtime during the winter break, let Trollhunters count the ways. Netflix can help keep the whole clan excited with over 250 inspiring moments from the epic saga.

I say: whatever works is fine by me!  I have mentioned before that family time is precious, so finding a series that reinforces strong values; such as the power of friendship, is wonderful.  Why not incorporate valuable moments into your lives?  Enjoy the time together, and even apart … parents need a break too.  Let your kids have their moments filled with giggles while you have your quiet moments filled with coffee breaks.

Merry Christmas!

My family has several Christmas Favourites to watch.  It’s fun to watch our favourites over and over again; however, there are many more to discover.  There are many that we haven’t seen yet.  Those are the ones that might become new favourites; new favourites that might be included in our Christmas Favourites in the future.

Happy Holidays, from My Bits and Bleeps & your friends at Netflix!

Netflix and … Mom? #StreamTeam

Did you know 62% of mothers and daughters say sharing TV shows helps build a stronger relationship?

With the return of Gilmore girls: A Year in the Life, Netflix is giving mothers and daughters another way to bond. A recent survey revealed more than half of women (53%) wish they spoke to their mother more often.  This November, fans all over the world can reconnect through the mother of all TV shows…because even reading this release will make you realize how much you want to call your mom.

More than half of mother-daughter duos surveyed (59%) report that post-show discussions are the best part of sharing a show together. In fact, watching together is so important that despite the distance, almost half of moms and daughters (41%) think watching together brings them closer. Even though one third of moms and daughters surveyed live thirty or more minutes apart, over half have gone out of their way to physically watch together on many occasions.

The ultimate mother-daughter pair, Rory and Lorelai, know the benefits of sharing show-inspired inside jokes and witty one-liners. Whether you and mom are die-hard fans or looking for your next binge together, Netflix is letting you send an invite for Date Night with Mom.

No matter what kind of mother-daughter relationship it is, Gilmore has something for you. The survey found that globally, almost equal portions of mother-daughter relationships fall into the following three groups:

My daughter and I are very much like Rory and Loreli.  We’ve spent many nights watching Gilmore Girls together.  We love the show.  We’re even more excited about Gilmore girls: A Year in the Life which is only 9 days away!  We’re preparing for the premiere, are you?
