Netflix Recommendations* for January for Mum, Dad and Kids

I have discovered the joy of Netflix due to the fact I have joined the #netflixstreamteam. My sky planner is approaching max due to the fact I am watching so much on Netflix so decided I would bring some recommendations your way that you possibly might enjoy for Mum, Dad and little ones. 

For Mum:
"The Good Wife"


This legal drama series focuses on Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies "ER"), whose husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth "Sex and the City"), a former Cook County state's attorney, has been jailed following a very public sex and corruption scandal. Alicia returns to her old job as a litigator (having taken 13 years out to be a stay-at-home mother) to provide for her two children. This show is set apart from other legal dramas by a number of factors. The series features a strong cast of characters and in turn strong actors playing them, not to mention the clever writing and ability of an episode to go from high drama to light hearted humour in the space of mere minutes.

The first four seasons are available now on Netflix.

For Dad:
"Justified"


Set in Kentucky, "Justified" start Timothy Olyphant as Deputy US Marshall Raylon Givens. A former Kentucky native, he returns home after a number of years and gets dropped right back into family feuds, and is reacquainted with old friends who may or may not stay friends. I must admit, I was enjoying the first few episodes but wasn't loving it. Around half way through the season though, everything just clicked into place and it's just gotten better and better. The writing is sharp and the characters are all well developed. Raylon is such a great character, and he's practically impossible not to like. The funny thing about him is that he's as cool as a cucumber when having a gun pointed at his head, but dealing with his family, in particular his father and ex-wife, his confidence hits the floor. The setting of the show is such that when you fire up an episode, it's like going to your local and having a good chat with some old friends.

The first four seasons are available now on Netflix.

For The Kids:
Turbo Fast


A spin off from the Dreamworks movie "Turbo", this Netflix produced spin off is a sugar rush of a show. Using "flash" animation instead of the now popular computer generated style that's employed by most cartoon series nowadays, this is one that uses it's bright colours, quickfire dialogue and high gag rate means it'll grab kids attention and keep it. The first five episodes are currently available which were released on 24th December 2013. The first episode is the full twenty minutes and the other four are split into two, eleven minute mini-episodes. More episodes are due to land around the major holidays during 2014.

Let me know in the comments what you think or maybe you have a recommendation for me? I would love to know x
