Netflix Favorites for May : Inspector Gadget, The Paradise, Land Girls and Call The Midwife #streamteam
We finally went and dropped our cable and went to straight Netflix streaming. We’re saving over $70 a month by doing this and our cable hasn’t been missed in the least!
We’ve all found some new favorite shows! Pinky is loving the Netflix original Inspector Gadget.
Yep, they brought good ol’ Inspector Gadget back! It brings back memories of when I was a kid, it was one of my favorite shows. Inspector Gadget and his niece Penny go on missions in efforts to stop Dr. Claw and his Mad men. I told Pinky how her dad and I used to watch it growing up too.
Here is the trailer –
On to my latest favorite shows. It seems I have an addiction to BBC television. It started with The Paradise. The story of a young woman who works in the first department store and gets caught up in the charms of the modern world.
Then I watched Land Girls which follows four members of the Women’s Land Army who are working at the Hoxley Estate during World War II.
Now, I’m really into Call The Midwife. I’m 4 episodes in and am really enjoying watching all the different stories of women becoming mothers for the first time or welcoming another member to the family. The show chronicles the lives of a group of midwives living in East London in the late 1950s to early 1960s. Some of the families are living in poverty and some of the conditions they give birth in are horrendous.
Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth; the story follows twenty-two year old Jenny, who in 1957 leaves her comfortable home to become a midwife in London’s East End. She is surprised to find that she will be living in a convent: Nonnatus House. Working alongside fellow nurses and the medically-trained nuns, Jenny has her eyes opened to the harsh living conditions of the slums, but she also discovers the warm hearts and the bravery of the mothers. Even after Jenny leaves Nonnatus, she continues to chronicle the lives of the midwives who have become her family.
Once I’ve caught up on this series I have my eye on the Netflix Original, Daredevil.
