Families, love them or hate them we’ve all got one. I’m sure at one time or another you’ve even looked around and thought, man this family could be a sitcom family! Whether your family looks like the Cleavers or more Modern Family these days you can find some TV family to connect with. I’ve rounded up some of the best families on Netflix to share with you this month:
Grace and Frankie is the newest family in the neighborhood. This Netflix Original series features legends Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, and Sam Waterson. When Grace and Frankie’s husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage—to be with each other—the women find themselves facing a change that they never expected, but they shift their perspective to get through it together with the support of their new blended family and, of course, a sense of humor.
According the Hyacynth the best family on Netflix is Gilmore Girls. Fiercely independent single mom Lorelai raises gifted, Ivy League-bound daughter Rory amid a continual stream of quick-witted repartee.
Everyone has those moments in life where you just can’t believe so and so is a member of your family. Maybe you want to hide them or pretend they don’t exist. Keeping up Appearances is one of my favorite BBC shows and the lead characters antics in trying to keep her real family hidden is a big reason why. This series follows the antics of Hyacinth Bucket, whose insistence on proper form at all times is a perpetual thorn in the side of her husband.
Kids like to watch families too, especially if they can relate. My kids love to watch shows that feature siblings and I love to encourage the power of having siblings!
Angelina Ballerina books and shows are a favorite of my dancing sisters. In Superstar Sisters Angelina’s sisterly instincts kick in when Polly goes missing; Polly proves she can be a big help to Angelina in finishing an important assignment.
Teamwork is crucial when your a Spy Kid. In the first of this movie franchise the tables are turned when pint-sized kids Carmen and Juni must rescue their secret-agent parents from the diabolical clutches of Alexander Minion.
