Thursday 13: 13 Things In My Netflix History

Well, it seems when you are out of the blogging world for a long period of time, your favorite link ups disappear. I went to find the Thursday 13 link up, and it hasn't been used since last July.

Thanks to those of you who expressed interest in participating in a What I'm Loving Wednesday link up! I should know in a few weeks if I want to take that on. :)

Well, I'm going to create my own Thursday 13 (even without the link up). I can't swear I'll make this an official link up (we will see if I can manage to do just one a week), BUT I'll probably use this one a lot of Thursdays that I blog. Feel free to use it (and you can even borrow my logo) if you want. Please leave me a comment so I can check out your blog as well! I promise to get better about commenting on blogs again, I'm so bad (I'll admit it). Yeah I know, the Thursday 13 buttons looks similar to my WILW button, I really liked that image, so I used it again. :)

13 Things in My Netflix History
(Can I say going through the history tab is SCARY. It's sad how much I watch Netflix).

1. The Dick Van Dyke Show (there were multiple episodes watched, but I'm only counting the show as one. I'm gonna do this with all the TV shows, otherwise this list would mainly be The Dick Van Dyke Show. Lol). Yes, I have these on DVD, but sometimes I'm too lazy to get out of bed and go into the living room to get them. I possibly sleep with my laptop next to me, and have been known to fall asleep watching episodes. Don't judge. :)

2. How To Steal A Million January 20th was the anniversary of the passing away of Audrey Hepburn. I decided to watch one of her movies in her honor. I own the DVD for this one, but I was at work wasn't at home when I watched it, so I used Netflix.

3. Charade January 18th was Cary Grant's birth date, so in his honor, I watched one of his movies (this one was a bonus because it also stars Audrey!) :) And yes, I have this on DVD too, but I was already in bed when I decided to watch it, and it was so much easier to start Netflix than to walk ALL the way down the hall to my DVDs. I'm honestly not as lazy as this is making me sound. Lol.

4. The Andy Griffith Show (multiple episodes) I am ashamed to admit that I've never really watched this show before now. I don't care how long ago it aired, it is still funny even today! 

5. Friends (multiple episodes) I'm going to confess that I never really watched Friends when it was on originally. Over the years, I had seen maybe a handful of episodes. So, I'm now on season 2 (I only watch a few episodes here and there, I haven't fallen into a "binge" watching mood with this one). I told my friend B I was mainly watching it so next time he says "hey- remember in that episode of Friends?", I'll know what he means. Lol.

6. Snow 2: Brain Freeze This is one of those cheesy ABC Family Christmas movies. I watched a lot of these over the holidays. A LOT. And yes, I watched the first one too (Snow). I actually kinda like this one though. Yes, it was cheesy, but I think Tom Cavanagh is adorable in it (as well as the first one). This was only available through the holidays, so I'm sorry, you can't watch it on Netflix right now (I know you are really upset over that). 

7. Christmas Town This is a cheesy, horrible, made-for-TV (or possibly straight to video) Christmas movie. If I could un-watch it, I would. It starred Patrick Muldoon, who will forever be Jeff from Saved By The Bell. Jeff was the older guy who broke up Kelly and Zack. Obviously 23 years later, I'm still not over it and I blame him. Lol.

8. 1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story I don't know how I ended up watching this one, it appeared under "movies you might like" and since it was a sports movie, I decided to watch it. It's based on the true story of this high school basketball player named Cory who suffers a stroke. I actually would recommend it. The kid that stars in it played the "son" on How I Met Your Mother (random trivia).

9. The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries This is a show from the 1970s. Yeah, it's cheesy, but I still watch it. One episode had Mark Harmon in it. I was like, it's GIBBS!!

Mark Harmon on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries. The man has always been good-looking.
10. Cedar Cove This is some cable TV show starting Andie MacDowell. It's actually pretty good. I somehow stumbled across it. I'm bummed that only season one is on Netflix. I'm on a mission looking for season 2!

11. Dogs With Jobs I couldn't see a TV show with that title and NOT watch an episode. Okay, I watched two.

12. Blue Bloods I will shamefully proudly admit that I binged watch four seasons of this show in less than three weeks. I don't know why I hadn't been watching this show in the first place. I mean, it has Tom Selleck AND Donnie Wahlberg in it. It doesn't get much better. 

13. Gilmore Girls Like a lot of people I know, I was kind of excited when I learned that Gilmore Girls was coming to Netflix. I only watched the first few seasons when it was on originally, so I thought I could finally catch up and find out what happened in the later years. I made it about halfway through season two when I stopped watching it. I'm sure I'll get back to it at some point, but it's not on my "Netflix Priority List" right now. I was sad when Edward Herrmann, who played the grandfather, passed away last month though. :( 

So there you go, my Netflix watching habits thrown out for the world to see (and probably judge). So, what's on your Netflix watching list? Any guilty pleasures? Comment below or tweet me here. 



  1. I'm so glad you're watching Friends!! And I didn't know that there was only one season of Cedar Cove on there. What a bummer. I'm reading the books and was looking forward to watching the show when I was finished. Boo.

  2. We really have such similar tastes. :)
