I have never been one to go out and celebrate New Year’s Eve. For some reason, most of the years I was invited to parties, I was not dating anyone but all my friends were. Being a third wheel is a nuisance, but make it happen on New Year’s Eve and it is downright painful! Thank goodness I am married with kids and am not forced into that humiliation of trying not looking like a loser when everyone was kissing at midnight. We usually celebrate New Year’s Eve at home with the kids, ordering pizza, playing board games watching TV. The kids are not interested in watching Ryan Seacrest ring in the New Year, so we usually find something on TV the whole family can enjoy.
This year, we learned that Netflix has a brand new show all of us are excited to watch. Starting December 19th, you can see a new family friendly program from Netflix, “All Hail King Julien.” If you have seen any of the Madagascar movies, you will remember that crazy guy, King Julien. When we saw the first movie, the kids fell in love with him and when they played the “I Like to Move It” song, my son jumped up and started boogieing right there in the aisle! The first five episodes of this totally original, totally hilarious and totally insane new series, will arrive exclusively on Netflix. Keeping King Julien in mischief, you will also see his loyal sidekicks Maurice and Mort plus a whole new cast of colorful animals. If you cannot get enough of the Madagascar characters, you can also see the holiday inspired shows, “Madly Madagascar”, “Merry Madagascar” and “Madagascar Penguins: A Christmas Caper.”
For the younger kids, there are other holiday inspired programs like Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas, Mumfie’s White Christmas, In Search of Santa or VeggieTales: Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving. Netflix is super easy to stream and it is affordable for virtually every budget. You can stream Netflix through your TV, tablet, smartphone, gaming system or computer for less then $10 a month! You can watch your favorite shows while you are in the carpool lane, at the doctors office or while relaxing at home. Be sure to follow Netflix on Facebook and Twitter.
