Watch Holiday in the Wild on Netflix

Holiday in the Wild is the name of a brand new Netflix original Christmas movie that was released on the streaming service in November 2019. Do you wonder what it is like celebrating Christmas in the wild, in Zambia? Find out what happens as Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe meet up in the wild and if it is something you should watch or not.

Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe are quite big names in the movie industry. Rob Lowe is well known from his roles in Code Black, a CBS series, Parks and Recreation (an NBC series), and also for his roles in Californication and other series. Kristin Davis might be most famous as one of the ladies in Sex and New York, but my favorite movie with Kristin Davis is Couples Retreat, a hilarious movie that makes me laugh whenever I watch it.

So, there should be potential when Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe come together for this Christmas movie created for Netflix. Does it live up to its potential? I have recently written about the brand new Disney+ movie Noelle starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and it was a 100% boring experience. Is Holiday in the Wild doing better?

Holiday in the Wild – The extra plus

Holiday in the Wild is a standard story about a woman that is left by her husband. She is sad and ends up traveling alone to Africa instead of with her husband. What happens in Africa? She meets a handsome man working with elephants (Rob Lowe), and of course, feelings arise in both of them. The story is so basic that it is boring. But, there is a little plus to Holiday in the Wild that still makes it better than the boring Noelle. What is that plus? Elephants!

Holiday in the Wild is about persons working with protecting and helping elephants in the country of Zambia. As a result, we get to see beautiful elephants, both young and old, and we see people who fight for their survival. Even though it is just a movie, it is still a real problem and we get some insight into what their daily lives might be like. Besides watching the elephants, we also get to see some beautiful clips from Zambia itself, making this like a nature movie with a romantic story connected to it. That is the plus making Holiday in the Wild worth watching.

Don’t be fooled. The story is still very boring and plain, but the elephants make it worth the while.

So, if you want to get some Christmas spirit while watching a romantic love story unfold among the elephants in Zambia, Holiday in the Wild is worth the minutes spent streaming it on Netflix.

How to watch Holiday in the Wild online?

Since this is a Netflix original movie, you can stream it online for free with your Netflix subscription anywhere in the world. You don’t need to change your Netflix country by using a VPN, as this movie is available in all Netflix regions. There are other examples of content only available in a few regions, but luckily, Netflix’s original content is available on Netflix in every single country of the world (in which Netflix is available).

Is Abominable on Netflix? Is Abominable worth watching?

Abominable is the name of the animated movie created by Dreamworks together with Pearl Studio. It was released in 2019, and it might bring a recent movie like Bigfoot to your mind. But, is Abominable worth watching? Is it family-friendly? Will adults enjoy the movie as well? Can I watch Abominable on Netflix?

Want to know more about the movie Abominable? Here you can find all sorts of information, and a review that will let you know whether it is a movie worth watching or not!

Is Abominable on Netflix?

The movie cannot be streamed on Netflix yet, but once it comes to the streaming platform, I will update the article with more information about how and where it can be streamed.

Abominable review

Abominable is still a cinema movie, meaning that you cannot stream it online yet. But, is it worth spending some dollars to watch this movie at the cinema? I would clearly say yes!

An Abominable review
An Abominable review

Last year, I was judged to watch the movie Bigfoot twice in the cinema, simply because I had to bring my two kids on two different occasions. To be honest, it was a boring movie and I suffered myself through it twice. So, I was kind of skeptical as I went to watch Abominable (with both kids) yesterday, but luckily, it was a way better experience for me.

The story of Abominable

This description is packed with spoilers, so be careful if you actually plan on watching this movie.

The scariest scene in the film comes in the first minute. Someone is running through small halls trying to escape. Guards do their uttermost to stop the creature, and that is when we see a Jeti for the first time. It has been taken the prison, and now it does everything in its power to escape. Using some special power, it manages to escape, but it is hurt along the way and hides on some roof looking towards a poster saying “Travel to Mount Everest.” The Jeti knows that is where it belongs and feels attracted to the poster and to Mount Everest.

In the same house, we see a young girl who is gathering as much money as possible. She doesn’t spend time with her family (after her father died), instead, she works to earn money, so she can visit all the places her father wanted to take her. One day, she goes to the roof to play her violin, only to discover a giant white arm hidden behind some carpets. She gets really scared, but as you probably guessed, a special friendship is created between the girl and the Jeti.

This is the start of a quest for them to get back to Mount Everest with the Jeti. But, the ones who kept the Jeti imprisoned are also out there to get the Jeti back, so there will be much action and fun before the story comes to an end.

Is Abominable a funny movie?

I had a really good time watching the movie at the cinema. Not only did I laugh a couple of times, but my kids laughed a lot. Many of the jokes were easy to predict, but it was created in such a way that kids love it. So, when the boy burps a little one, we all look forward to the giant burp of the Jeti. And guess what happens a few seconds later upon the arrival of the giant burp of the Jeti (or should we call it a barf)? Loud laughter among all the kids and most of the adults in the cinema.

There are many jokes and humorous things happening like that in the movie, and it makes it really easy and enjoyable to watch.

Unlike Bigfoot, a movie that dealt with the tough topic of being open to new stuff and not living in the past, this is a much easier movie to digest. Here you can simply enjoy it and follow the story, and the children will for sure have a good time watching it. In fact, I believe many parents will have a good time watching Abominable as well.

Is Abominable worth watching?

The movie currently has a 95% audience score at Rotten Tomatoes, and even though the critics’ score is lower, it is still a very good score. My personal score to this movie would probably be around 80% and considering that I am an adult who doesn’t really care much about animated movies for kids, I would consider this to be a very good score.

In other words, if you want to watch a great movie at the cinema tonight with your kids, this is a movie you should consider. It is completely harmless, it is family-friendly, it has some great jokes, and the story in itself is very nice and also touching the value of staying close to your family!

The girl in the movie looks really beautiful!
The girl in the movie looks really beautiful!

I should also mention that the scenery, the animations, and the characters are beautifully made. It is such a joy to watch the girl in the movie, and also to see the Jeti in its beauty.

I can warmly recommend this movie!

Is His Dark Materials on Netflix?

There is a brand new TV series named His Dark Materials that is getting a lot of attention at the moment. Can I stream His Dark Materials on Netflix? Is it on Netflix already? Or is it on Netflix in the United States, in India, or maybe in England? Here you will find all the information you need related to watch His Dark Materials on Netflix.

His Dark Materials is a joint production between HBO and BBC. If you have some knowledge and experience, then you already know the answer related to whether we will ever be able to watch His Dark Materials on Netflix. How come?

His Dark Materials on Netflix?
Can I watch His Dark Materials on Netflix?

His Dark Materials on Netflix right now

First of all, you cannot find His Dark Materials on Netflix at all in this very moment. It premiered on November 3rd on BBC, and it cannot be found on Netflix, no matter which VPN you use and where you might be in the world. So, you can just stop looking, because it is nowhere to be found.

His Dark Materials on Netflix in the future

Netflix is one of the streaming champions of the world, together with Amazon, Hulu, and HBO. So, as soon as I realized that His Dark Materials is a production from both the BBC and HBO, I at once understood that this show will never get to Netflix. If it was a BBC production (only), then we have seen many of their shows such as Bodyguard, Line of Duty, Cuckoo, and others get quite quickly to Netflix. But, since it is an HBO production as well, this will never reach Netflix, but instead, you need to watch it on either BBC iPlayer, or on HBO in your local nation.

His Dark Materials on Netflix – a video summary

I have also created a little video dealing with His Dark Materials and whether or not it will come to Netflix. I will just repeat what you have already read, but in addition, I will show you how to watch His Dark Materials on BBC iPlayer, no matter where you might be in the world.

The surprising elements of the Bill Gates documentary on Netflix

Were you one of many people who were looking forward to the documentary about Bill Gates on Netflix? I didn’t know much about it before I heard of it in a trailer, but once I understood that it is coming to Netflix, I became really enthusiastic. And guess what, I am still enthusiastic about it after watching the three episodes. It both surprised me and encouraged me while challenging me and informing me.

Bill Gates: Inside Bill’s Brain is a Netflix documentary that was recorded during a period of two years. A reporter is allowed to follow and see Bill Gates during much of his work, and also to get insight in how he works, and to ask him questions about the past that few people have asked him earlier. In other words, this is loaded with information for those who want to get to know Bill Gates a bit better.

Inside Bill's Brain
Inside Bill’s Brain

Some of the surprising elements

The first episode surprised me in many ways. How come? To many computer nerds, Bill Gates is all about Microsoft, programming, and about being rich. But, the first episode turns the focus in a totally different direction – it focuses on fighting polio all across the world. Why is such a fight included in a documentary about Bill Gates? Probably because it is just as important to Bill Gates as Microsoft or any other company is right now.

And that really makes it interesting. We are all fighting to make money, but in this documentary, we see that Bill Gates’ focus currently is much more about helping the planet. He uses lots of time and of his talent in finding out how it can be done in the best possible way, and the first episode deals a lot with this.

The second episode is more like what I had expected from the documentary before I started. Here we get to know more about how his career started, how the “Windows” project started, and we get to see and discover that Bill Gates really had a talent for programming. We also hear about his colleagues, and what happened in his relationship with those, and also his future wife, Melinda.

The third episode managed to surprise me once again. We get to know about his battle for clean water, but also to create energy that is environment-friendly. This is a part I knew nothing about at all, and to discover that he actually works with nuclear energy was mindblowing. And I guess that is interesting, especially because I am very negative to nuclear power myself. After Chernobyl, it all feels so dangerous, and I guess the majority of people alive today are skeptical of the concept. But, if Bill Gates is working on it, then it for sure has potential.

I would have been very curious to see an upcoming documentary about Bill Gates, created by people who worked with him and around him, but without any “intention” to glorify him. This is a Netflix documentary that clearly glorifies him, and it makes me curious about dealing with what former colleagues and partners think of him.

Of course, we see his challenges in this documentary, and he is clear about his own weaknesses, but still – it would be very different if this was supposed to be a two-sided documentary. But, I guess I will have to go to Amazon.com to find a book or some other documentary dealing with Bill Gates if that would be the goal.

Inside Bill’s Brain: Conclusion

I enjoyed it from the start till the end. This was worth the money (that I pay for my Netflix subscription), and I am looking forward to more similar content in the future!

If you want to watch it online, visit Netflix.com and stream it immediately. You don’t need access to American Netflix or any other Netflix region to watch it, because this is original content that can be streamed on Netflix worldwide.

Have you seen the documentary? I would love to hear your thoughts about it!

Bill Gates and cryptocurrencies

The topic of cryptocurrencies isn’t touched at all in the documentary. But, I do know that Bill Gates’ isn’t a big fan of the cryptocurrencies, even though he sees some potential in blockchain technology. After watching the documentary, I feel tempted to think that “Since Bill doesn’t like cryptocurrencies, neither should I.” But, then again – he cannot be correct about all things, and I guess there are lots of things that can be said about places and situations in which Bill was wrong. However, to learn more about that, I guess I would need to watch a different documentary, or read some other book!

As you can see, it is 100% possible to watch Desperate Housewives on Netflix, even though some of the seasons are missing.

This is truly a legendary TV series, and it was extremely popular during its run time. It won 3 Golden Globe statues, and it consists of a total of 8 seasons. It has a 7,4/10 score on IMDb, based on more than 100,000 votes. It stars some amazing actors, such as Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, James Denton, and lots of others.

I haven’t watched all the seasons and episodes myself, but I know a lot of my family members have. In other words, this is awesome action and humor for those who want to relax in front of the TV screen while watching what’s going on at Wisteria Lane. This is the location of the series, as we see the neighbors pay attention to one another, take care of one another, take advantage of one another, and spy on one another. This is the story of a neighborhood packed with beautiful houses, beautiful people, and some not so nice people.


Desperate Housewives premiered on ABC on October 3rd in 2004, and the fun lasted until the last season finished on May 13th in 2012. In 2007, Desperate Housewives was reported to be the most popular TV show worldwide in total.

Criminal: UK 01 e02 review

Not long ago, I watched the first episode of Criminal: UK. I was really positive about the concept and liked how they manage to keep the tension of the show up for the entire episode, even though it all took place in a single room (or at most 3). So, I was looking forward to the second episode as well. I was very curious to find out if they could keep this up for more episodes, considering that it is all about solving crimes in the interrogation room. So, how can they make lots of episodes all dealing with conversations in an interrogation room interesting?

My main worry before the episode was… can this be interesting once again? And even more, can it be interesting for 11 more episodes? The first was interesting, but can they make this work well for so many episodes?

Criminal: UK - episode 2 review
Criminal: UK – episode 2 review

Yes, it is based on true stories, and that in itself makes it interesting. But, there are lots of true stories that are completely boring to watch, even though they are based on reality.

So, whats up with Criminal: UK episode 2?

I watched the episode around 21.00 in the evening. This is when I like to watch TV and have quietness and peace to do so. I started with great enthusiasm, but something strange happened after about 20 minutes. I got really tired, and in the next moment, my eyes switched between a closed and an open status several times per minute. So, after thirty minutes I pressed the stop button. I didn’t manage to watch anymore.

Who’s to blame? I guess it was a mixture of me being tired and the show, but normally, I do not fall asleep watching interesting stuff at 21.00 in the evening. For some reason, I found this to be boring, and the story and the plot didn’t manage to grab a hold of my attention. There wasn’t the newness to the story anymore, and the plot itself was so standard and basic, that it feels as if I could have been the interrogator in the room instead.

After the girl confesses the crime, I would have said exactly the same – that was too easy. And yes it was, and in the end, the truth about what happened is told by the girl itself, and also her motivation for lying comes out. But, it was so easy to foretell based on the story that was told… and maybe that was what made me fall asleep.

When I watched the last minutes of the show, I got tired once again, but this time I managed to finish the episode without falling asleep.

Did you know that you can watch all the Criminal series on Netflix, all across the world? You do not need access to German Netflix to watch the Criminal: Germany, nor access to French Netflix to watch Criminal: France. The episodes are available on Netflix worldwide, making them all easy to watch and enjoy.

Have I given up on Criminal now?

I haven’t given up on the series at all. Maybe the second episode of Criminal: UK was a downer, but I will still give the last episode of season 1 a chance as well. Furthermore, I will also check out the other language versions, maybe they will be able to give the series something that the English language version doesn’t manage to give. Maybe there are more interesting cases to be cracked in other languages?

I guess I will discover as I give them all a chance. But, there is lots of other stuff that I want to stream and watch on Netflix at other streaming services as well. Did you know that ITV in the UK has produced a lot of great shows lately? The show Sanditon, based on the novel by Jane Austen has become really popular. Another popular show of theirs is A Confession, in which Martin Freeman plays the role of a DS doing everything to find a killer before he gets new victims. But, to do so, he decides to skip the rules and just follow what he believes is right. Is that a wise choice? There are several other shows as well, so I guess I will have a lot to do in October as well.

Do you have a favorite show? How do you like Criminal: UK? And what about the other versions? Are you a fan or not? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Most popular in September – aka, Downton Abbey isn’t on Netflix!

It is very strange to tell you, but the most popular video on our YouTube channel in September 2019 was a clip about how to stream Downton Abbey on Netflix. But, the very irony of it all is that you cannot stream Downton Abbey on Netflix anymore.

When we first created the movie, you could stream Downton Abbey on Netflix here and there, but now, it has been totally removed from Netflix and cannot be streamed on Netflix at all. But, that is probably the reason why so many people actually watch the movie, because they want to find out if it is actually possible.

Unfortunately, we cannot change the content of a movie that has already been published, but we have pinned a comment to the video telling the viewers that Downton Abbey isn’t on Netflix anymore.

In other words, forget about what we are actually saying in the video because it no longer works that way. If Downton Abbey will return to Netflix sometime soon, we will probably delete this video and create a brand new instead.

Other popular content on Netflix in September

Those not looking for a way to stream Downton Abbey in September, what were they looking for at our Netflix channel?

Well, we had quite a lot of people looking for a way to stream The Blacklist season 6 on Netflix. It might be that many of these people are even more interested in finding out how they can watch The Blacklist season 7 on Netflix, a brand new season that will premiere tonight on NBC in the United States.

The video about how to stream The Blacklist season 6 on Netflix is actually the second movie about the same topic. It was created because the previous movie was blocked by YouTube, simply because it contained a few seconds of actual footage from the season. So, NBC wanted to take it down, and YouTube followed their orders. As a result, we created a second movie without actual clips from the season, and so far it looks like YouTube will let it stay on the platform.

Want to watch Power season 6?

The final season of Power is currently running in the United States, and in the UK, Netflix is the official broadcaster of the show (just like with Suits season 9). As a result, you can easily watch Power season 6 on Netflix. This is not for kids, as it is packed with violence, ugly language, and sexual content.

The clip above has been seen by a couple of hundred people so far, and it will for sure be enjoyed by even more people in October as new episodes are released weekly on Netflix in the UK. If you are a fan of Power, this is your chance to see the final season of the show. If you haven’t seen any single episode yet, go ahead and watch the first five seasons before you get ready to stream season 6 on Netflix as well.

Ready for some romance in Outlander?

One last clip that caught the interest of a couple of hundred people was our instructions on how to watch Outlander season 4 on Netflix. This show is a really popular one, but while most countries will only give you access to the first three seasons (or nothing at all), this clip will show you how to watch the first four seasons of Outlander on Netflix. Isn’t that great?

Outlander isn’t a favorite show of mine, but I know there are millions of fans out there who would be really happy to catch up and watch all the episodes of season 4 of the show on Netflix.

How to watch The I-Land online?

The I-Land is the name of a Netflix original series that was made available to the public in September 2019. People had great expectations to the show, but it didn’t produce the magnificent reviews that the creators had hoped for. But still, it is easy to understand why you are eager to watch The I-Land online. But, where can it be done?

I had great expectations to The I-Land myself. As I looked through the list of content coming to Netflix in September 2019, this was the title that made me most curious of all. It reminded me of Lost, and it also had an inch of the Hunger Games to it. Someone even compared it with Westworld, but I didn’t really know for sure how to deal with that. But, now I have watched all seven episodes of The I-Land, and I guess it is most fair to compare it with Westworld and Lost, and not so much with The Hunger Games.

How can I watch The I-Land online?
How can I watch The I-Land online?

How to watch The I-Land online!

If you live in a country without Netflix, then you will need to get a Netflix subscription to stream The I-Land. But, what if Netflix doesn’t exist in your country? If that is so, you will need to use the VPN services of ExpressVPN to bypass such geo-blocks, and create a Netflix account in some other country instead. And if you have that opportunity, my suggestion is that you create a Netflix account in Brazil, a much cheaper option than if you would purchase a Netflix subscription in the UK or in the United States.

Visit ExpressVPN(start watching Netflix right away)

After you have signed up for ExpressVPN, connect to a server in Brazil or some other country (in which Netflix exists). Create an account and start your 30-day free trial. You will then be ready to stream The I-Land online immediately.

Want to watch The I-Land without Netflix?

I cannot and do not want to recommend illegal places to stream The I-Land. Visiting sites with such pirate streams often places your own devices and computer at risk, not only because it is illegal, but because they are often financed by people adding spyware to your computer, they are infected with viruses and more, so that is not recommended.

In other words, get a Netflix account and start streaming The I-Land online!

What are my thoughts after watching The I-Land online?

I have watched all seven episodes online of The I-Land. I had a great time watching them. It wasn’t the show of my lifetime, and there was quite a lot of stuff that annoyed me with the series. But still, it was entertaining and exciting, it had some cool turnings to it, and it was impossible to know how the story would end before it finally ended.

I always like it when a story comes to an end. I hated it that Lost never really ended, and when it did after lots of seasons, it happened in a terrible way. From the first episode of The I-Land, I enjoyed the fact that I knew that it would soon come to an end. In that way, it was easier to keep up with the series, even though it was boring a few times.

I do not regret watching it, but I am sitting back with mixed feelings. It wasn’t a brilliant series, it wasn’t a bad series… it was just a bit above average or something like that!

Have you seen The I-Land? How did you like it?

How many people use Netflix in the Netherlands?

Is Netflix the most popular streaming service in the Netherlands? How many people actually subscribe to Netflix and use Netflix in the Netherlands?

I have been writing a lot of articles lately dealing with the number of subscribers to popular streaming services. To my great surprise, I discovered that Amazon Prime has 105 million subscribers, though it cannot be said for sure if this is the number of subscribers in the USA or worldwide. Most likely, it is the number of worldwide subscribers, simply because it would be unlikely that they have this number of subscribers in the USA, but nothing can be said for sure.

But, when it comes to Netflix, things are a bit easier, even though they do not publish a lot of numbers either. What we can know about Netflix is that they have about 150 million subscribers worldwide, and the number of subscribers in the Netherlands is somewhere between 2,5 and 4 million.

I have seen numbers varying between 3 and 4,5 million subscribers, but it is very important to know that the number of viewers is far higher than the number of subscribers. After all, you can view Netflix at several locations at the same time with one subscription, and it is normally families and couples that watch content together.

Netflix – the most popular streaming service in the Netherlands

It is very clear that Netflix is, by far, the most popular streaming service in the Netherlands. All other streaming services have less than 500,000 subscribers, meaning that Netflix beats them all. Not only do they have more subscribers, but Netflix has very eager subscribers. Back in 2017, is it said that Netflix subscribers by average spent 85 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY watching content on the platform. That is one depressing number, at least for those who want to change the world. For Netflix, it is good, but considering how much time we actually spend in front of our TVs and smart devices watching stuff (instead of doing stuff), I find this number to be quite depressing.

What about YouTube in the Netherlands?

But, it is also important to notice that most people watching Netflix, also watch other content. In fact, the most popular video streaming service in the Netherlands is a free one… it is called YouTube. Even more, people use YouTube than Netflix, even though my personal belief is that you get higher quality and spend the best hours of the day on Netflix compared to YouTube.

But, the age-groups most frequently using both YouTube and Netflix is those aged between 12-20 years old. The YouTube audience is by default a bit younger, while the Netflix users normally are a couple of years older.

What about NOS and other services?

Normal television is kind of outdated, but the Dutch TV channel NOS/NPO is still a very popular one. That is why there are loads of people checking out the article on how to watch NPO abroad every month, simply because they are big fans of the Dutch channel and want to watch its content. And the same can be said about Dutch Netflix. It doesn’t matter if it has 2,5 or 4 million subscribers when these people go abroad, they quickly discover that the Netflix content in the rest of the world is different from what they are served in the Netherlands (both for good and for worse). Maybe they discover new content on Netflix that they haven’t seen before (and that they would like to stream), or maybe they discover that their favorite show is gone and that they desperately start searching for ways to access Dutch Netflix abroad as a result.

Netflix Netherlands is getting better and better

What is important to realize is that Netflix is a very important part of our culture, and especially among young people. This means that they speak about Netflix, watch Netflix, speak about Netflix, and then watch some more Netflix. What do they speak about in school? They speak about the most recent season of Stranger Things and Black Mirror, their thoughts on the new show named The I-Land, and all the other stuff that comes with Netflix.

And with this giant success in the Netherlands, Netflix also helps out with Dutch subtitles and dubbing (where needed), making the streaming site even better. No wonder why the Dutch people love Netflix so much!
