This post is being sponsored by HP and Netflix, two companies whose products I’ve been using for years and I’ve been very happy with. My family has always watched its fair share of TV and movies, although I’m happy to say that we watch very little junk. We’ve had a Netflix account since I can remember, and when we received those discs in the mail, we often watched many of the movies as a family.
A few years ago we switched to Netflix streaming only. No more discs. It was much cheaper and as streaming became the way my kids were getting used to watching so many things, it just seemed it was time. The only problem was we wound up not watching together anymore. With our little laptop screens it was very impractical. And though there are many ways to watch Netflix streaming from your Television set, such as through XBox or PS3, it is somewhat of a hassle.
My entire family has all been big fans of the TV series Arrested Development since the first episode aired in 2003. It was one of the series that all four of us loved and bonded over. The series lasted three years, which was actually a lot considering it did not have a big audience at the time, even though it was critically acclaimed.
Luckily, due in part to Netflix, others discovered Arrested Development and its audience grew after it was cancelled. While fans had been hoping for a movie, something better happened. Netflix collaborated with the A.D. producers to air an entire season directly on Netflix! We have all been so excited to finally get to see new episodes.

The day has finally arrived and the new season of Arrested Development is up on Netflix. All 15 episodes are available to watch at once. Fans all over are celebrating. And I am so excited that my family can watch together without any hassle at all with my new HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC with a 23 inch screen TV. It might not be as large as our television screens but it is certainly large enough for three of us to sit around and certainly larger than a laptop screen.
During the past few weeks we’ve been using Netflix to catch up on old episodes of Arrested Development. It was great being reminded again of the frozen banana stand, never nudes and Buster losing his hand to the seal. It is amazing that for $7.99 a month, we can screen such a wide variety of series and movies When it comes to TV shows, almost everything that isn’t current is in Netflix. I use Netflix whenever I decide to catch up on a series. I’ll be watching Scandal this summer. As far as movies go, there aren’t many blockbusters, but there are still plenty movies to choose from.
Stay tuned for more articles about the wonderful benefits of desktops PCs, large screens and all-one-one computers. My new HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC is my favorite PC out of all the desktop and laptops I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to see how much more it can do.
Full Disclosure: I received two HP Desktop Computers from HP so that I could right about family activities and families staying connected through technology. I also received 6 months free use of Netflix (although I already had a subscription). All opinions are completely my own.
