Dust Off Your Shelfies with Netflix

While you spent last year shuffling the kids to hockey games, helping solve their quadratic equations and giving the little ones their baths, you probably missed episodes – if not full seasons – of some great shows. Did Olivia kick Fitz to the curb on Scandal? Who’s rocking the break room on Grey’s Anatomy? Just how long is Rick’s beard now on The Walking Dead? With full-blown fall premiere season upon us, now’s the time to grab your boo and glass of wine (or just grab the wine!) and dust off your shelfies.

What’s a shelfie you ask? We all have them – they’re the shows you’ve been wanting to watch but they’ve been sitting on the virtual shelf because…well, because you’re a parent and who has the time?

Which shows are on your Netflix shelfie list? Share the top-three shows you have been dying to start or catch-up on and tag it with #StreamTeam. Here are mine:


In the tradition of High Fidelity, Scrotal Recall,  follows a British lad revisiting his past loves. But he isn’t just on a quest to figure out where he went wrong. He’s tracking down his former lovers so he can tell them that he recently tested positive for chlamydia.


A Different World is an American television sitcom which aired for six seasons on NBC (from September 24, 1987 – July 9, 1993). It was a spin-off series from The Cosby Show about and the life of students at Hillman College, a fictionalblack college in Virginia, inspired by Hampton University. Jasmine Guy was my high school principal’s daughter so I was really into the show.


Maggie Gyllenhaal just won a Golden Globe for her work in the political spy thriller The Honorable Woman. The eight-part miniseries follows a British-Israeli businesswoman as she tries to work toward peace in the Middle East.

Mixed bag? Oh, if only if you could see all my shelfies! I think I have 100 of them.

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix Streamteam and get monthly complimentary Netflix in exchange for my posts.
