Usually when I tell people that I’m an accountant, they automatically assume I do taxes and that I’m really busy in April when taxes are due. Blech…I don’t do taxes. I don’t like taxes. In fact, April is pretty chill at my job. July/August, on the other hand? Let me just say, I’m working on a potentially harmful mixture of 2 coffees, a 5 hour energy, 2 sodas and sweet tea several days in a row. My alarm has gone off earlier than ever. It is cray-zay up in here.
Even with all the craziness, I still make time to sit and eat dinner with my family and watch a show on Netflix without being distracted.
Since there is absolutely nothing on tv in the summer anyway, we took the opportunity to search around for a new series to watch on Netflix. We came across the series “Limitless” which is a continuation of Bradley Cooper’s movie of the same name. Bradley Cooper even makes an appearance every few episodes (definitely a bonus). It’s a crime/drama series with a good amount of humor mixed in.
Brian Finch, a 28-year-old burnout and struggling musician, is introduced to NZT-48, a miracle drug that gives him access to every neuron in his brain. For twelve hours after taking the pill, he becomes the smartest person in the world, able to perfectly recall every detail of his life and capable of prodigious leaps of intuition and reasoning. With the mysterious U.S. Senator Eddie Morra (Cooper) providing him with an immunity shot to counteract NZT’s deadly side effects, Brian uses his enhanced abilities to help FBI agent Rebecca Harris. The problem is the FBI doesn’t know about the shot and Brian has to keep both worlds separate.
I thought there were a few seasons, but unfortunately, it was just cancelled in April after 1 season, so you can only see it on Netflix haha…oops.
Trent has been watching Pokemon Go (and yes, playing the app with Brett) and Hot Wheels. He and Aubrey also asked to put Puffin Rock on and they both really liked that. It’s a super cute Netflix original series and season 2 will be out next month!
Another series coming next month that we’re really excited about is “Ask the Storybots.”
Both kids really like the Storybots app so we think they will like the show too. I wonder if we’ll make an appearance?
