Summer Favorites: #5 Plethora of Brain Fry

There are so many things I love about Xbox 360 and Netflix, I really should buy stock in the darn things, I toot their horns so much.

One of the many things includes the instant access to Netflix streamed to our television (which if you know my husband you know it's no little 27 inch old school thing, it's big).

Of course we get our two dvd's in the mail, but with our instant access my kids get to pick their favorite shows to watch (which comes in handy since we don't have television). There are so many fabulous benefits to this for my kids: no dvd's in and out of our player, no commercials (hallelujah!), access to entire seasons at a time, fun movies we would have never found otherwise, they get to scroll through a great list of dvd covers to pick their shows, and they dont have to scrunch around the little computer monitor. Good stuff.

This summer my favorites have been Pushing Dasies and Veronica Mars. My kids like Wizards of Waverly Place, Drake and Josh, Thomas the Train, Dora the Explorer. My husband likes horror movies so he watches those alone. Haha.

We have that option for the PS3, and it's great!

We have it for the Wii, and we love it! But we save the big tv for adult viewing. So the kids have to view on the computer monitor. Such a mean mommy!
Netflix is way better than renting from a store!

What? You don't watch the scary movies with the hubby? I thought you'd like to watch scary movies as long as someone was there watching them with you.

Fun! We don't have an Xbox or a big TV, but those items are both on my wishlist. Most of our television viewing happens on our computers (i.e. small screens), so I can totally relate to your comment about crowding around a tiny screen to watch Dora the Explorer. Haha! I love Pushing Daisies and Veronica Mars and wish there had been more seasons of both of those shows. :)

I'm so out of touch---I don't have anything nintendo-related and I've never done Netflix.

But I do love Wizards of Waverly place:)

I'm so glad that netflix finally streams to the Wii. My only complaint is that when they take a movie of the instant movie's queue, when end up having to buy it because McKay keeps asking for the movie. Maybe he'll understand when he gets older. Hahaha.

I do love Pushing Daisies. :)

It's amazing! I'm so jealous, I need to get on this. Do they have it for the Wii?

We have netflix for the Wii and I love it too. That reminds me I have to send a movie back. :)

We don't have TV either. It's all about netflix. I just heard they signed a deal with more big name companies so there should be a better selection on instant access.
