Netflix Rex

Jordan and I are traveling back today from Clearwater, so I'm truncating the post a bit.


What I'd love to be doing today, and what I'll probably do tomorrow, is snuggling up on the couch with Tom Hanks and binge-watching some Netflix. I thought I'd give you my favorite shows on Netflix right now - a comedy series, a drama series, and a documentary, and a movie.  

Comedy - The Office. 

If you haven't already watched this show, drop everything and get after it. The Office is just one of those shows that is timeless, hysterical every time, and family-friendly. This is a show I can watch with my parents, grandparents, husband, and (one day) with my kids. Jordan and I have a kind of unhealthy obsession with this show, and all seasons of it are streaming on Netflix. GO. Run to your couches. Tell Dwight I say, "False." 

Drama - Jessica Jones. 

Netflix adapted this comic book heroine into a series brilliantly carried by Krysten Ritter. If you liked her as Rory's kooky friend in Gilmore Girls, you'll love watching her be a total badass in this series. The show itself can get pretty dark, but the plot is strong, the writing is compelling, and the acting is really great. Action packed and bursting with girl-power. Worth it. 

Doc - SOMM.

I seriously can't say enough about how much we love this doc. We've watched it at least twice. Even if you know absolutely nothing about wine (like me), watching people who are training to become Master Sommeliers is the most riveting thing on Netflix. These guys can identify the region, year, and type of wine by SMELLING IT. Let that sink in. They're amazing at their jobs, and watching people be excellent is always entertaining. 

Movie - Chef.

Jon Favreau's  2014 comedy about a formerly-great-currently-washed-up chef is so heartwarming, so funny and so smart. On top of all of that, it includes the most delicious food porn and has a killer soundtrack to boot. John Leguizamo, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downy, Jr. all help make this movie fabulous. Trust me - this is a movie that will leave you feeling inspired, warm and fuzzy, and, above all, hungry. Watch it with a big giant pizza at the ready. It's just a really delightful watch. 

Happy binging! See you Monday.
