Netflix Original Series Must Sees #StreamTeam

Since cutting off our cable service, I have realized more than ever how much I love Netflix. Not only does Netflix have an enormous archive of popular TV series, but they also have the best original series’.


One of the new original series, Grace and Frankie, I am excited to see stars Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”). This series premieres next week, on May 8th. These are both tremendous actresses, which I don’t see nearly enough of any more!

Here is a brief synopsis of the Grace and Frankie storyline:

Grace and Frankie are two women whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, they form an unlikely bond to face an uncertain future together and discover a new definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.

The executive producers have both had extreme success with previous TV series’. They are Marta Kauffman of “Friends” and Howard J. Morris and “Home Improvement”. Given their previous successes, I believe Grace and Frankie is going to be no different!

Another original series that will be premiering in May is called “Between“.

It is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves.

This is a 6-episode suspense-thriller series created by award-winning writer/director Michael McGowan (Still Mine, One Week, Saint Ralph) and stars Jennette McCurdy (iCarly, Sam & Cat). Mark your calendar, it premieres May 21st!

race to the edge

Here is a Netflix Kids original series that begins June 26 for 13-episodes. This series is sure to be a huge hit with the kids! It stars Hiccup and Toothless, the two infamous characters from How To Train Your Dragon, in this Netflix original DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge. Hiccup and Toothless lead the dragon riders beyond the borders of Berk, and discover the mysterious Dragon Eye, which is filled with mysterious secrets that lead them to new lands filled with undiscovered dragons.


If you are looking for a good series that recently began, then check out Bloodline. This series started in March, and follows the Rayburns who have some dark family secrets they’re willing to do anything to keep from coming out — lying included.
