It’s Thursday. Or in the social media realm, it’s Throwback Thursday. The day where people post photos of themselves from back in the day.

It’s the day where your Facebook feed unwillingly belches out mullets, Jheri curls, and overalls that hang off of one shoulder. Or maybe it’s more of a reflection of former addicts of Cross Colours, AquaNet and leggings with stirrups.

I'm about 3 years old here, sitting in a rocker that my mom used when I was an infant and now sits in my home.

Regardless of the fashion crime, it’s still amusing to watch. Speaking of watching, as some of you know I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team, which is a blogger network where we write about various topics including what we’re watching.

One thing that’s cool about Netflix is rediscovering my favorite shows from way back when. We’re talking Smurfs, Care Bears and Jem and the Holograms. (I actually have a post coming up about my friend doing something amazing related to Jem, but stay tuned.)



As a member of the Netflix crew, they’re letting me offer one of you lucky guys a three-month subscription code! There’s many ways to enter the giveaway, which I will conduct via Rafflecopter. You can:

  1. Tell me the name of your favorite show from back in the day in the comments below.
  2. Follow me on Twitter and tweet me the name of your favorite show. Please use #StreamTeam.
  3. Like my Facebook page and write your favorite show on that page.

You can enter as many times as you’d like. The giveaway will close Friday, May 2 at midnight. Good luck!

#TBT: I’m Hosting A Throwback Thursday Netflix Giveaway — 16 Comments

    • Me too, it was great to see people looking like me on TV portrayed in a way that was more like my family that what I was used to seeing. And I always loved the musical numbers they did.

    • Oh Punky was the best. I liked her attitude and some of the topics (i.e. the Challenger exploding) were fascinating to me because it resonated as one of the realest shows as a kid. (realest? Did I really just type that? That’s embarrassing. Well, I’m not deleting it in the name of public shaming and all.)
