Goosebumps TV Show on Netflix

I'm usually here to promote going out into the world to go on adventures, and trying new things. But, sometimes, you just need a down day.

And, for your next reboot-for-next-adventure day (RFNA Day....kinda like the NRA, but not), may I suggest checking out Goosebumps on Netflix.

If you grew up in the early-mid-90s, you probably watched this show or at least read the book series.

Personally, I had *all* of the Goosebump books and *all* of the Fear Street books. They're probably one of the reasons I got into reading in the first place - hence - became a writer myself. (Thanks, R.L. Stine!)

Like any childhood TV show - and like anything from the 90s, in general - it's probably going to be a bit cheesy, but also pretty entertaining.

This new Netflix development is making me wish I had kept all my Goosebumps memorabilia - I had a coffin shaped box that Scholastic used to ship one of my first book orders, not to mention the myriad of pencils/pens and other stationary items.

If you're not familiar with Goosebumps, you probably won't like it but - thanks to the power of Netflix - you can watch lots of things, good and bad, and make that decision. The Cliff's notes on the series: kids do bad things and creepy things happen, usually with a twist. And you gotta love the names: ie Say Cheese and Die.

And I always loved entering the contests. Like this current one - which I'm pondering entering at the age of 30, just because.
