Binge watching on Verizon Fios

We have had Verizon Fios since forever – okay, 11 years. I remember when we got it because during one particularity sad technology week here, we had only one antenna for two TVs. So when my oldest asked for the rabbit ears so they could watch PBS downstairs, I laughed, gave them to her, and went out that day for another set. And then I called Verizon.

Really. When we renovated our house – mostly the kitchen – all my husband wanted was a comfy chair and some sports channels. And we definitely have that covered with Fios.  Me and the kids? We like movies and some long running shows; binge watching is kind of a thing in our the family. How about you? Ever finish a show and wonder what to watch next? Me, too. But then I talk to some friends (or the kids) for suggestions. yes, I will share.

This Is Us

If you aren’t already watching this (no, you’re crying) then catch up here.  I promise not to talk about the upcoming episode until you do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jane the Virgin has been a family favorite for a while but we can’t talk about it – we’re all in different places – No spoilers!

Also a huge fans of Crazy Ex Girlfriend – trust me, dark, witty, funny, sweet and with musical numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t gotten into Big Little Lies but I think it’s only a matter of time. Or Game of Thrones. That’s on my list. Definitely caught up and enjoying this season of Girls.

Need to watch those Oscar nominated movies you missed? Start with these available now on Fios.

And we have a family movie night planned to watch this:

Check to see if Verizon Fios is in your area here. Locally, Fios is rolling out in newly wired areas: Dorchester, West Roxbury, Roxbury and Roslindale.

And there’s a new way to get Fios, too.

 

Disclosure: I am working with a Verizon Fios team of bloggers to help get the word out about Fios coming to Boston. While I am being compensated for sharing, all opinions are, as always, my own. And yes, yes I do, watch a lot of tv. No judgement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finding Kind on Indieflix – Try it

As a blogger, I get a lot of emails from companies; many of them are nice, some are self-serving (you know who you are), and some are flat out awesome on all levels. This is one of the awesome ones. Finding Kind is a documentary about female bullying that takes a clear look at how girls treat one another and how we can effect real change.

Check out the trailer here.

About Finding Kind

In February 2009, two young women, Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson joined forces having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth and decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, an internationally recognized movement, documentary, and school assembly program based on the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl “crime.”

Indieflix has been behind this film from the start – I am late in getting the word out. Love Indieflix on so many levels – as a viewer of films and as a parent of a potential film student.

Per FTC regulations I would like to disclose that I was given a complimentary three month subscription to Indieflix (in other words, if I’m not posting as much – it’s because I’m watching great films on Indieflix :-). In further news, evidently filmmaker Lauren Parsekian just married Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad.
