Top Netflix Picks For 2017 #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad


    Before the credits roll in 2017, I wanted to take a look back at all of our favorite Netflix moments this year. From the very best binges to conquering family TV time, there was truly something for everyone. So, without further ado, here are the shows that filled our family’s must-watch list this past year:

Sneaking in some me-time with Orange is the New Black.


Choosing what’s next with Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale.


Binge racing through all episodes of Stranger Things 2 in one sitting.


    Celebrating New Year’s with your kids can get exhausting. Fast. While they may think they’re staying up until midnight, little do they know the secret weapon you have in your pocket: Netflix New Year’s Eve Countdowns. With nine countdowns to choose from, you can press play on the night’s festivities whenever and however you want, so they’re off to bed sooner and you can pop a bottle of bubbles—now that’s a cause for celebration.


    Featuring a cast of faces familiar and new, kids can party with Trollhunters, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, Puffin Rock, Word Party and Beat Bugs, and new appearances from Pororo, Larva, and True and the Rainbow Kingdom. Not to mention Netflix is making it easier than ever to discover all of the countdowns your family can stream. Starting December 26, search “Countdown” or “New Year’s Eve Countdown” and you’ll find a special 2018 icon added to the homepage with direct access to all nine videos.

And the best is only yet to come, because we can’t wait to celebrate 2018 with our favorite New Year’s Eve Countdowns!

  1. I am so glad to have all these ideas for the New Year and for New Year’s Eve. I have been missing Oramge is the New Black so I might want to review those before the New Year comes.

  2. We binged Stranger Things in a day. The second season was SO good. We just watched the Netlix movie, Bright the other day, too! So good.

  3. Sounds like the best way to spend the holiday weekend! I can’t wait to play catch-up and binge watch all of these shows!

  4. I still haven’t binged Stranger Things season 2! I have to watch it! So much good TV on Netflix, so little time. Luckily I’m on vacation this week, I’ll be getting my money’s worth. 🙂

  5. I have heard nothing but good about Stranger Things. I think you may have just moved it up in my queue. Thanks!

  6. Krystal Butherus says

    It is nice to be able to make a list of things to watch on Netflix. There is nothing better than a day of binge watching a TV series.

  7. I definitely want to watch Stranger Things, I heard it’s a great show! Netflix is great, I watch it all the time!

  8. Oh gosh I don’t have Netflix but I so need to watch Stranger Things Season 2! The first season was so good and I have heard nothing but good about season 2. Maybe I’ll switch back in january!

  9. Reesa Lewandowski says

    My son is obsessed with Stranger Things. I loved a lot of crime dramas that were on there like Mindhunter!

  10. I LOVE LOVE Netflix and would rather Netflix and chill with great food any day of the week. LOL! I have yet to get on board with stranger things, I am all in when it comes to Orange is the new black. SOOO good. Oh and not your list but a fav Fuller House.

  11. That’s so funny that Netflix has different countdowns for new years. I remember falling asleep early as a kid and waking up just at midnight, thinking I had “stayed awake”. It can be hard for the little ones who are used to an earlier bedtime. Love Netflix!

  12. Thanks to Netflix I don’t need to wait until NYE to watch a marathon of “Twilight Zone” as I have been watching almost non-stop since last week! Happy Holidays sis!

  13. We love Netflix! Stranger Things, Sense8 and The 100 are just some of my favourite Netflix shows. We just recently saw Bright too. Awesome.

  14. It took me a while to jump on Stranger Things wagon but I really enjoyed binge watching this show with my husband.

  15. Krystle Cook says

    I am always looking for new things to watch. I love that you have shared this list.

  16. We binged Stranger Things recently and loved it! Also love Orange Is The New Black!

  17. That sounds like so much fun. We had a movie marathon for Christmas. It was a great way to stay home and catch some great movies.

  18. Angela says

    I loved the Orange is the New Black book, but have not watched the series. This will definitely be added to my list of shows that I must see!!

  19. Lots of great things coming! I love seeing what Netflix adds each month to their line up. Thanks for a sneak peek of what’s coming!

  20. We binged Orange is the new Black, but still haven’t gotten around to watching Stranger Things. Tonight we’re taking in the new movie, Bright!

  21. We binge watched Stranger Things 2 in two nights. It was very good. I am curious to see where they take the story next.

  22. I totally need to catch up on those series’, I’ve heard so many good things about them. Plus that’s a really handy thing to have to keep the kids busy for New Years!

  23. We’ve had Netflix for several years and I never realized they did a “countdown.” We definitely already binge watched Stranger Things 2 and began watching Stranger Things Beyond (?) and are re-watching the first season now. And I also binge-watched the entire new season of Fuller House this past week. I can’t wait for Grace & Frankie to be back in January though. That’s the one I’m ready for!

  24. Stranger Things isn’t quite my speed, but I know I’ve been holding off on binging the new season of The Crown until my aunt’s in town so we can watch together!! Seriously a great bonding activity.

  25. This looks like such a fun party and I definitely need to tune in for more new stuff on Netflix. I’m always up late looking for a new show while I’m getting work done and the rest of my family is sleeping.

  26. I spend my days with a toddler so we watched a LOT of PAW Patrol and Luna Petunia on Netflix. Late at night I binge watch some Korean drama or FRIENDS!

  27. I am not embarrassed to say I have been watching Friends on repeat for nearly 4 years now. Haha – but I also watched Stranger Things 2, Riverdale, and a ton of movies.

  28. Brittany Giles says

    I love OITNB and also She’s Gotta Have It! Netflix has some amazing series!
