When I was a kid, Saturday morning cartoons were a special treat I looked forward to all week long. In fact, it was the one day of the week that I woke up before my parents! I loved quietly creeping downstairs and sitting in front of our little television to watch all my favourite shows. And missing any of my favourites (like Transformers), was always so disappointing since it meant waiting a whole week before I could watch again.
Thinking back on those days is funny, since binging on a favourite show is now so easy thanks to Netflix! Whether I want to watch old cartoons on a Friday night or binge-watch a movie series on a lazy Wednesday afternoon, I’m free to enjoy what I want, when I want…with no fear of missing my favourite entertainment!
Recently, Netflix took a look at how people use their television freedom to enjoy their favourite shows. Comedy is most popular choice for morning viewing among Canadians, so if you like waking up with a giggle, make sure to check out the newest season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, streaming now! Documentaries, on the other hand, are most often watched in the wee hours of the night. Fans of late-night learning will love the combination of education and childhood nostalgia in Bill Nye Saves the World.
And if you just can’t decide what type of show you’re in the mood to see, never fear! Click here to download a Netflix Spinner that you can customize with your favourite shows. The next time your family can’t agree on what to watch, give it a spin and let fate decide!
I still feel a certain nostalgia for those days of Saturday early-morning cartoons, but overall, I far prefer the freedom that Netflix brings to my life. After all, with two active boys in the house and a husband with an erratic work schedule, I’m never sure when I might have a minute to sit down and relax. So, when those rare moments do occur, I love being able to put on one of my favourite shows and binge to my heart’s content!
