Drew Barrymore's Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix Captures a New Generation of 80's Fans

Drew Barrymore stars in Netflix' Santa Clarita Diet Season 2.

Ever since I watched her as an adorable 3-year old little girl in the 80's movie hit, E.T., Drew Barrymore has caught my fancy. As I grew up with her, (albeit I am many years older), I have watched many of her films, like Firestarter, The Wedding Singer, Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, to name a few.

Fast-forward to today's online, and streaming channels like Netflix, Barrymore just proved how quality actors and artists can overcome changing times, and still whet the appetite of audiences worldwide. 

Santa Clarita Diet, starring Drew Barrimore on Netflix is just the perfect fix for us belonging to the Gen-X bracket, who are craving for new and original content that we can watch anytime, and anywhere.  Other Netflix shows I recommend to watch are Lost in Space, and A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2.

Here's the synopsis: Suburban wife Sheila (Barrymore)  and supportive husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant) both struggle to face the obstacles of nosy neighbors, law enforcers, and finding a cure to the cause of her transformation and her cadaver cravings. As Sheila enjoys her newfound energy and confidence, which she attributes to her “diet”, she struggles to keep her humanity intact as her family tries to feed her and find a cure.

At first glance, I actually thought that it was a cooking show. I eventually found out that it was more gory than your usual lame diet, and mind you, I am not a big fan of zombies, nor the undead.  

But Santa Clarita Diet has a different treatment that keep viewers glued to the screen -- mobile, or laptop-wise.  It has just finished the run on Season 1, captivating fans to follow-through for Season 2. The good news is, Season 3 has been given the green light, set for another 10 episodes. This show can actually be enjoyed on Netflix through Globe.
