Netflix and Nosh

It is October; Halloween is creeping up and there is a cool crisp quality in the air. As the leaves turn from green to red to orange, and the mornings turn colder, apple harvests, pumpkin patches, costumes and parties fill our schedules. Sometimes, in between the busy autumn festivities, the gray skies and brisk winds that inevitably accompany fall weather make us want to cuddle in a snuggie with the fireplace crackling, a delicious comforting meal and a big screen to watch Netflix.

We have some great seasonal suggestions for your binge watching pleasure, as well as some themed meal recipes. Take a look at our top 5 Netflix picks for this Fall/Halloween.

Stranger Things

This decidedly creepy Netflix original series brings back all the nostalgia of movies like Stand By Me, E.T. and The Goonies. Starring Winona Ryder and break out stars Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard, Stranger Things starts with a missing child and a frantic mother in a small town in Indiana set in 1983. This is a DO NOT MISS show that everyone is talking about. We also love that our clear Sea TREK helmet is featured in 2 episodes, and our very own Keenan Mayfield (Sea TREK Field Operations Specialist) was on set when the scenes were shot.

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial

If you haven’t seen this classic, catch it while you can —it is on Netflix right now!
This 1982 Steven Spielberg masterpiece is as compelling today as it was when it was brand new. A young boy befriends a peaceful alien and keeps it a secret — until the alien falls ill.

Meat Lovers Pizza


This remake of the classic T.V. show is as funny as it is sweet. Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman light up the screen along with Shirley MacLain, Michael Caine and Steve Carell. This witchy little comedy is perfect for a snuggly night indoors.

Sleepy Hollow

This creepy, stylistic, movie version of the 1820 Washington Irving publication The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is sure to intrigue and frighten. With Tim Burton’s ethereal, dark and edgy style of directing, and Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci and Christopher Walken’s performances you might want to leave the lights on.

The Addams Family

The T.V. show translated well into this movie. With dark humor, romance and a quirky family, this fun movie will hit that Halloween sweet spot. Snap Snap!
