My family was recently on vacation up in New Hampshire when disaster struck. A big thunderstorm rolled through. Gasp! It was a major storm involving torrential downpours and ping-pong ball sized hail, so we were basically trapped inside of our condo (I’m just glad we were already inside when the sky opened up!!). Anyhow, not five minutes into it my boys both started with the “I’m bored” nonsense. Thankfully all of our devices were fully charged and ready to stream some some of their favorite shows on Fios.
Verizon Fios Tween Streaming Guide
Because I have two tween boys, I decided to round up some of their favorite go-to shows. If you have tween boys, check out this Verizon Fios Tween Streaming Guide because who knows – you might find a new show that you love! It’s super exciting that new areas in Boston are getting Fios service all the time and I am thrilled to be partnering with Verizon to bring you some information about their new service in the Boston area! I’ve had Verizon Fios for years and I have never been anything but happy with it!
From schoolteachers to firemen to police officers to social workers, this competition gives everyday men and women the chance to transform into fearless acrobatic competitors at the six regional qualifying competitions held throughout the U.S. 100 finalists will have a shot at a $500,000 cash prize and the chance to win the coveted “American Ninja Warrior” title at the national finals in Las Vegas.
While this list is technically in random order, I put this show first for good reason. This show holds a special place in our family’s hearts. One of the 5th grade teachers from my boys school just completed the course in the Cleveland qualifiers a few weeks ago. Her name is Allyssa Beird and she is a beast! My oldest, who is now going into 8th grade didn’t have her, but my little guy who is going into 4th grade in September still might. The whole school has been rallying behind her and it’s been pretty awesome to see the community come together over this. Oh, and did I mention that Mrs. Beird is a beast? Seriously…watch the episode. You will be blown away.
Anyhow, my whole family loved the show before, but now we love it even more. Especially the boys!
There’s a trend in the U.S. housing market, albeit a very small one. Drawn to the prospect of financial freedom, a simpler lifestyle, and limiting one’s environmental footprint, more buyers are opting to downsize — in some cases, to spaces no larger than 300 square feet — and this series celebrates the “tiny house” movement. Hosts and renovation professionals John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin travel across America to show ingenious small dwellings and their creative inhabitants. They also help families design and construct their own dream minihomes.
Both of my boys both have a fascination with tiny houses and are obsessed with this show. When I have other tweens over, tiny houses always get brought up, so I know it’s not just mine. While I don’t get the appeal of living in a tiny house, hearing other people’s stories is actually quite captivating. Once you sit down and start to watch, you will be hooked.
Bobby Flay is no stranger to culinary competitions, whether he’s hosting (“Bobby’s Dinner Battle”) or competing (“Throwdown With Bobby Flay”). In this program he does both. Each half-hour episode begins with two chefs competing to create a dish using an ingredient chosen by Flay. The winner of that challenge — as determined by a special guest judge — goes to the second round, in which he or she does battle against chef Flay. To make things a little more fair, the challenger has an advantage by being able to prepare a signature dish that is unknown to Bobby until the start of the round. Once he learns what the dish is, Flay must immediately come up with his own version. A panel determines the winner of the second round through a blind taste test. Food Network regulars Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell and Giada De Laurentiis are among the judges appearing on the show.
My oldest wants to be Bobby Flay when he grows up, so he watches everything with him in it. Really! This is a fun cooking competition show and you might just get an awesome idea for dinner when you stream an episode of it.
“Cutthroat Kitchen” isn’t a typical cooking competition. A player, in addition to being a good chef, must be able to outwit and, at times, sabotage opponents to win. Each episode features four people vying in three rounds to win up to $25,000 cash. At the beginning, $100,000 is split evenly among the players to spend however they wish during the game. The chefs spend the money at auctions to get things that could help them — like buying exclusive use of salt — or hinder their opponents — like prohibiting them from tasting a recipe in progress. Each round eliminates one chef, until there is a winner. Although the competitors want to make purchases at auction to improve the chances of winning, they don’t want to spend too much; the amount remaining in the winner’s bank determines the ultimate prize. Some special tournaments — usually seasonally themed — stretch across multiple episodes and offer higher amounts of money. Alton Brown hosts.
This is a big favorite in our house, both with my tween boys and us parents. We all love seeing the out of box concoctions that the chefs come up with and some of the sabotages the chefs do to each other during the competition are absolutely hysterical. It’s more than just a cooking show and it’s a great show to sit down and watch as a family.
Phineas Flynn and his stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, are determined to make every day of their summer vacation fun. They try building a full-scale roller coaster, becoming musicians, building a backyard beach, and traveling back in time to meet dinosaurs. Their family pet, Perry the Platypus, doubles as a secret agent and battles evil. Meanwhile, older sister Candace is tattling on them to Mom and Dad, though she can never seem to catch them in the act.
Phineas and Ferb is one of the most watched shows in my house. It’s my youngest’s go-to show and we’ve all seen each episode many times over the years. The thing is, this one is for the parents, too. There’s a lot of adult humor mixed in. I will be the first to admit that cartoons are not what they used to be and there are many that I can’t even stand to watch, but Phineas and Ferb isn’t one of them. It’s really relatable and just plain funny. I really enjoy it to be honest and so do the kids.
There are many other shows my boys love, but these are the ones that not only my boys love, but the whole family loves. What shows would you add to the Fios Tween Streaming Guide?
