New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

A “new oldie” on Netflix. One Day at a Time is the latest original series to drop on Netflix, and it’s already getting tons of great buzz. The Netflix original is a remake of the 1975 version produced by Norman Lear. I think we’re supposed to know who that is. On further research, he is a TV production legend who has been dropping hit shows for decades.

The Netflix series, with its 13 episode first season, is all about a Cuban-American family. Penelope is the matriarch of the family and a former military veteran who is separated from her husband. She’s raising a teenaged daughter, the idealist, and a son, a socially awkward middle-schooler. Adding to the mix is Penelope’s mother, Lydia, who pops up to help out around the house.

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.

Award Season Kick Off: Golden Globes

We love TV. So go figure we’re going to watching the Globes on Sunday night. You should too. There are some awesome shows nominated in both drama and comedy categories with great performances across the board. We’re thinking it’s going to be This Is Us in Drama and Atlanta in Comedy. You heard it here first. (Sunday | NBC | 8pm ET)

How to watch: In select markets (basically major cities), you can stream NBC through Sling TV (Blue). If you are in an area that doesn’t get live TV through Sling, your digital antenna should work well.

For the red carpet junkies among us, there are a bunch of ways to stream the red carpet.

Binge The Crown: Stream the Award Winning Show

The $100 million bet from Netflix. The story of Queen Elizabeth II, the destruction of the woman she was before becoming royalty, and the replacement of that woman with a monarch. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to binge The Crown.

The Crown is a period drama and is Netflix’s attempt to capitalize on the popularity of shows like Downton Abbey and to a lesser extent Peaky Blinders. Season one hit Netflix in November 2016, and Netflix has confirmed a second season. Filming is allegedly underway in London right now. Our best guess for a Season two release date is December 2017. But for now, binge The Crown season one to your heart’s content with the comfort that there’s plenty more binge to be had here.

The first season is the story of the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign of the United Kingdom. The Crown follows gives us an inside look at Queen Elizabeth II starting just before her wedding in 1947. The plan is for six seasons that will bring the story right up to the present day.

The Crown is created and written by Peter Morgan and produced by Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.

Binge the Crown – Is it worth it?

Here’s the bottom line on The Crown. If you’re looking for an exciting, heart pounding drama with tons of violence, sex, and messiness, this is NOT the show for you. If you want to see Claire Foy, the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth, kill it by pulling you into the struggle between being a queen and being a young woman all with crazy good cinematography, then this is a great watch.
