Netflix in January

It's been super cold here in Pa and as I am writing now its 6 degrees. I love the cold and the winter. I love being inside snuggled under a warm blanket by the fire, making food in the crock pot as the house fills with its delicious aromas! Its just that homey cozy feeling that I love about winter.


Because of the cold and being inside much more than usual I started a new series on Netflix called, Call the Midwife. I had never heard of it until another blogger I follow recommended it and I am now hooked! Call the Midwife is a Series about a group of nurse midwives working in the East End of London in the last 1950's and early 1960's. The series was created based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth who worked at convent in the East End of London. It depicts the day to day lives of the midwives and those in their local neighborhood of Poplar. It also covers cultural and economic issues that directly and indirectly effect the characters and story lines. For example abortion, the Thalidomide scandal, disease epidemics, prostitution, racism, homosexuality just to name just a few Its amazing what these people went through and saw. I have learned a lot from this show!The only disappointing thing is that so far there is only 5 seasons that consists of only 8 shows each. So if you are looking for a good series on Netflix I would highly recommend it!

Of course when this series is over I will do what I usually do and watch it again. I like to watch shows twice as you can miss things the first time and then you wonder how you missed them!
I am looking for a new series and was thinking of The Crown. Has anyone watched that? It's hard when you really like a show because then you compare everything you watch after it to the one you loved. So far I have watched The Gilmore Girls, Greys Anatomy, House, and  Call the Midwife. I would have to say that Call the Midwife so far is my favorite because of the historical aspect of it. I'm weird because I don't like what everyone else likes!
I'm not a lover of reality TV.
I don't like police shows or investigation shows.
I don't like shows that are to risque"
I don't like fairytaleish (I know there is no such word!) stuff!
Whats left right!
Any recommendations would be appreciated! Its funny that for years I refused to get Netflix now that is ALL I watch!
