Every night for the past week or so, I have been watching the latest season of House of Cards which is a Netflix original production. This is an amazing show!! To say the writing is excellent is an understatement. Claire and Francis Underwood are a political force to be reckoned with.
In the latest episode that I’ve watched, Francis overstepped Congress to use millions of FEMA disaster relief funds for his new jobs program – his “baby” America Works. But like a member of the cabinet said, “Jobs are worthless if people are dead.” (If there is no money for disaster relief, people will die.) It’s mind boggling how ruthless and cunning he is. He knows when to bluff and when to lay ’em out on the table. Don’t cross him or he will best case, ruin your life, worst case, kill you.
By the way, whose side is Doug on anyway? Looks like he may be back in camp Francis. Claire is appearing more and more to have a conscience. While, Francis visits a church, only to spit on a statue of Christ on the Cross before he leaves. (Yes, he went there!) Needless to say, I can’t wait for tonight’s episode and will be bummed out when the whole series comes to a conclusion.
Have you been watching House of Cards?
Mr. Peabody and Sherman
Mr. Peabody and Sherman is fun family movie now streaming on Netflix. We saw this in the theater and loved it. We watched it again on Netflix.
If you haven’t seen it, the story is about Mr. Peabody, the dog prodigy with exceptional talents and abilities, who adopts a boy Sherman. Sherman goes off to school and meets Penny. She is a bully to Sherman, throwing his sandwich on the floor and calling him a dog (because he is owned by a dog.) Sherman ends up biting Penny and getting in trouble. Mr. Peabody hopes to make peace with Penny and her family by having them over to their house.
Sherman and Penny get into serious trouble when they try out the Way Back – Mr. Peabody’s time machine. They travel back in time to places like ancient Egypt and Rome. Mr. Peabody has to get them back home before Penny’s parents realize she is gone. (Mr. Peabody puts them in a trance for a while.)
When in Rome, Mr. Peabody hides in the Trojan Horse in an effort to save Sherman. (Remember the story of the Trojan Horse?) On that note, I have to share with you the Trojan horse that my son made entirely out of Popsicle sticks. He made this last year for a social studies project – just Popsicle sticks and glue, that’s all he used! Mr. Peabody would be proud of his ingenuity! 😉
Mr. Peabody and Sherman has a bit of everything – history, action and adventure. It is a heartwarming story about a father and son that has a bit of adult humor too. That’s why, as a whole, this is one of our top picks for family movies currently streaming on Netflix.
