What’s Old is New Again with Netflix #StreamTeam #TBT


Who doesn’t love a good #TBT. Well, what about throwin’ it back to the old school TV shows you used to watch as a kid that are now back thanks to Netflix!

I am throwin’ it back for my husband because after having our first son, he insisted on buying superheroes for him that he could play with when he was older and let me tell you those Superheroes did not leave his side. When he was older, my husband would put on shows like Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends and told him all about when he was a kid waking up Saturday mornings excited to watch this show which we owe to Netflix for having it on. Even shows like Scooby-Doo (which is a current favourite in our house) was one of my husbands old time favourites and my son truly loves that he is watching shows his dad loved to watch when he was a kid.

Netflix Does #TBT – #StreamTeam

Who doesn’t love a good #TBT (throw back Thursday) pic especially when it involves large shoulder pads, big hair half pulled to the side by bobbles or hot loops, giant eye brows or best yet the tight waisted jeans with a crop top (HOT!), but some of my favourite throw back memories are those TV shows that I spent countless hours watching like Jem and the Hollagrams (she was truly outrageous), eating dinner ever so quickly in order to catch the opening song to Bev Hills 90210 and I can’t forget my afternoons post school watching Saved by the Bell (B. B. B. B. B. go Bayside) and now you can pretty much guess my age 😉

For the month of May, Netflix is having their own #TBT where they have a slew of our old time favourites listed and I couldn’t be happier. Here are some great titles for you to watch with your kids and rehash memories of your own:

7. Spider-Man (my older guy watches this one daily while my husband rehashes his memories of watching this show early mornings when he was a kid)
8. The Facts of Life

While you are watching your old time favourite, why not take a page from the books (remember all the Bill Cosby J-E-L-L-O commercials) and make some Pudding Pops or you can settle for some good ol’ Mac & Cheese with ketchup
