I asked my kids what their favourite Netflix show was. The girls were all snuggled up on the couch with their favourite snuggly blankets and their favourite stuffed dolls, and I grabbed the camera and shot a video, asking them to tell me what show they liked watching the best… and well.. their answer kind of cracked me up. It certainly wasn’t one I was expecting.
Apparently their current favourite show is Bob Ross, the painter, with his happy little trees and happy little clouds. While I do remember watching The Joy of Painting on PBS many times during my childhood, it’s not something I thought my kids would be begging to binge watch on Netflix.
As of June 2nd, Bob Ross: Beauty is Everywhere is now streaming on Netflix. My husband immediately noticed when the show popped up as “New on Netflix” and started watching it when he wanted to relax in our cool air conditioned basement after work, maybe take a snooze on the couch. My husband confided in me, “Bob Ross has the most soothing voice ever, puts me right to sleep.”
Well he doesn’t have quite the same effect on my kids, who find Bob Ross less soothing and more utterly fascinating. However, as I later learned, he doesn’t quite beat out my six year old’s other favourite new show… Voltron!
What about you folks? What bizarre shows do your kids love to watch?
