This month has been super exciting for us at the Dancing Hotdogs family. While we have been enjoying the cold weather, we cannot be outside all of the time, so we have been enjoying some good old fashion family time with Netflix. There have been a whole slew of family shows that have come out over the last couple of months, but these three have been our favorite so far:
Voltron: Legendary Defender (Season 2)
The first season was loved by all the boys in the Dancing Hotdogs household. The second season only expands on the great story that it started. This time the team is separated throughout the universe and must get back together in order to find evil. This show is perfect for children of all ages even older Voltron fan’s like myself.
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
Based on the book, the show has an absolutely fabulous cast. While the story may not be best suited for smaller children (they may not like the dark tone and mean characters) older children and adults will get an amazingly constructed world and characters. On top of that Neil Patrick Harris steals the show (like always) as the Nefarious Count Olaf.
This show was one that I was looking forward to ever since I learned that it was being made. The show retains Guillermo Del Toro’s visual style as well as creates characters that are much more fully realized that in most cartoons. On top of that, the shows action scenes are extremely well done and super exciting. While both the boys and I were not well versed in the books that the show is based on, Trollhunters does a great job of getting the watcher up to date in the world of trolls. The show also features some good voice performance from Kelsey Grammar and Anton Yelchin (who unfortunately passed away).
Even after watching these shows there are a ton new Netflix shows premiering this year for all ages so keep your eyes peeled, because you favorite show may be waiting for you out there.
