The Vampire Diaries
Director: Chris Grismer, Joshua Butler, Michael A. Allowitz , and various others.
Starring: Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice King, Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, Nina Dobrev, and Steven R. McQueen.
This is the series that started it all for The CW and the series Legacies. The Vampire Diaries is a very popular Netflix series based on the popular book series of the same name.
The show is set in the town of Mystic Falls, VA, and it focuses on the people of the town who have supernatural powers and are creatures of the night, aka Vampires. One high school girl finds herself trying to decide between two brothers, who also happen to be Vampires. What will she decide? Well, you have eight seasons to watch to find out.
I wouldn’t recommend this series for younger kids because of the maturity of the content, but for the older kids, there are enough episodes to keep them fully entertained during school closures.
Director: Robin Budd
Starring: Bryn McAuley, Evany Rosen, Gage Munroe, Joseph Motiki, Dan Chameroy, Diane Salema, Patrick McKenna, and Scott McCord.
Hotel Transylvania, the tv series, is an animated show based on the 2012 movie of the same name, and Netflix is streaming the entire first season.
In the series, Dracula’s daughter, Mavis, attempts to show her dear dad that she can manage the hotel while he is away. Unfortunately for Mavis, her attempts are not always successful, and that’s where the fun comes in as Mavis tries to deal with hilarious situations that are not always in her control.
This is a great little series to watch while it’s snowing as it is designed to be a comedy and will keep even the youngest of kids entertained.
