Binge The Summer Away with Netflix

Growing it up we depended on the TV guide to find when our favorite shows would be airing. I recall waking up at 5:30 AM weekdays to catch Scooby Doo and then Inspector Gadget. Then we were blessed of the amazing era of the VCR and then DVR, where you could program the machine to record a show so that you could view it later. Now, we have amazing services like Netflix, where we can watch whatever we want to watch whenever we want to watch it.

Now that’s its summertime, our kids have a lot of freedom to binge watch their favorite shows, but I am honestly doing my best to balance their time. When I need mommy time, is when Netflix comes in very handy in our house. Is binging series programs a thing in your home?

Speaking of Inspector Gadget and binge watching, did you know that season 3 of the Netflix exclusive Inspector Gadget series just premiered?

Go Go Gadget Fun!

Now through September 4th, Ghost Town Alive! returns to Knott’s Berry Farm for another action-packed summer complete with bandits, cowboys, robberies, judges, a good ol’ western hoedown, and much more!

Guests can visit the beloved town of Calico and experience an authentic western adventure by becoming a star in this summer’ s story of the Wild West, where the power to unlock adventures is in the hands of every guest.

Ghost Town Alive! will offer guests a firsthand experience to play an important part in this unfolding story of the wild west, with specific tasks and activities and an essential role as an honorary citizen of Calico.

The end of the Ghost Town Alive! day concludes with a big old fashioned hoedown. My kiddos had a great time getting out there with the citizens of Ghost Town and learning to square dance.

At night, the fun continues. Set on the Calico Mine stage in Ghost Town, come witness a spectacle; see awe-inspiring stunts, and death defying acrobatics in“Circus of Wonders.” The astonishing 30 minute spectacular is action packed with all-time favorite circus attractions such as the Trapeze, Tightrope, Aerial Acrobatics, Trampoline, and of course, clowns, incorporating lighting and pyrotechnics, making this nighttime show a must-see event!

The live entertainment continues with the explosive Wild West Stunt Show and the high kickin’ Calico Saloon Show, all in Ghost Town. At the Wagon Camp Stage, get krazy when Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies mount their toe tappin’ , knee-slappin’ , gut-bustin’ country comedy show that will have audiences clamoring for more! In the evening a group of krazy talented performers has guests kicking up their heels with vine dancing, a down home jug band and dueling fiddlers and banjos! There are two performances nightly.

Ghost Town Alive! and the entertainment are all geared toward all ages. Truly, everyone in the family will have fun at this unique activity that you find at any other theme park. Especially none with as much real history as Knott’s.

Anne with an E – New to Netflix

This Mother’s Day weekend, at a bookstore near you, Netflix is bringing Anne of Green Gables to life with the special launch of Anne with an E. This reimagined classic is sure to inspire children everywhere.

Saturday, May 13, from 2 to 5 p.m. Fans can get an Anne with an “E” gift bag, filled with Anne-inspired gifts and a 3-month complimentary subscription to Netflix (one per customer, while supplies last). There will also be fresh flowers and photo ops, perfect for the day before Mother’s Day at  participating bookstores. SoCal bookstores participating are: Chevalier’s Books, Los Angeles and Deseret Books, San Diego, California.

Anne of Green Gables by Canadian author L. M. Montgomery was first published in 1908. In the book, Anne Shirley—a red-headed, mischievous orphan—is accidentally adopted by the siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. To date, the book has sold more than 50 million copies and has been translated into at least 36 languages.  In fact, Mark Twain once described Anne Shirley as “the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice.”

Netflix’s new incarnation of the spirited Anne Shirley will actually be older than her book counterpart when she comes to live with Marilla and Matthew, but not less spunky on the small screen than she was in the novel. Check out the preview below:
