Throwback month with Netflix - win 3 month subscription

**Congratulations to Vivacious for winning the 3 month subscription**

This month is throwback month for the Netflix Stream Team (which I'm on). We were challenged to share some oldies but goodies with the kids. Unfortunately the Brady Bunch TV shows are only available on DVD, as opposed to streaming (which is what we have). And I'm not subjecting them to the Brady Bunch movies, which I can't even bear to watch.

Keep reading for a special contest at the end!

Instead we chose The Naked Gun, with Leslie Nielsen. They loved it! Especially since they'd already seen Airplane (including the cringe inducing boobie scene, which they thought was hilarious). Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is on my watch list for the kids too. Plus Escape to Witch Mountain. Do you know who that stars? Kim Richards from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! I can't wait to relive the good old days, from before she was a recovering alcoholic with kids by 2 ex-husbands and a very cute ex-boyfriend. Of course I won't be sharing that with the kiddos.

Okay, the contest. Netflix will give one Frisco Kids reader a 3 month streaming subscription just because you read Frisco Kids. How awesome is that? Totally awesome. If you want a 3 month subscription, you have to leave a comment below, telling us your favorite throwback movies or TV shows that you want to share with your kids. I'll choose my favorite response, so give a good reason or story as to why.

I'll pick the winner on Monday, April 28 at 5:00 PST. Don't forget to leave me your email address so I can contact you. If you don't want to leave it on the post, make your comment and then email me at contest (at) and tell me which one was yours. I'll give you 24 hours to get back to me to confirm you're alive, and if not I'll move on to the next person.

Happy streaming!

  1. I've been sharing "Freaks and Geeks"with my older son. It's a show from the late 90s about the early 80s. The show's actors did a good job mirroring real-life situations.

  2. Just this morning I quoted Back to the Future with my 67 yr old mom, seems like I should show that to my kids. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. Even though it's from way before my time, I grew up watching I Love Lucy with my mom and to this day, I never get tired of watching reruns. I would love to enjoy the show with my kids and maybe even invite Grandma over for a mini marathon :)

  4. Boy meets world and one that my older daughters watched was Ned's Declassified because they portrayed some actual scenerios from middle and high school that kids go through and showed how to handle it

  5. I am former military and my son loves to watch Major Payne. That was the only good humored military movie I could show him that had some of the distinct qualities that feature military life but it is so hilarious because now whenever he gives a command to someone around the house, he tries his best to impersonate major payne
