Not A Fan Of CNY Gatherings? These Netflix Families Got Your Back!

10 Feb 2018 by Chew Hui Ling

Chinese New Year will soon be upon us! As much as we look forward to stuffing ourselves with pineapple tarts and collecting ang baos, you know there’s always that one relative who never fails to fuss over your outfit, pry about your relationship status… you get the idea. Don’t get us wrong though, we totally love ’em – but if your family shenanigans are becoming a tad overwhelming, why not seek refuge in these virtual fams instead? Check out this Netflix flowchart to find out which house you belong to!

Netflix Family Flowchart

YOU GOT: A Series of Unfortunate Events

A Series of Unfortunate Events

They’re as loyal as a pack of wolves, but not just to anybody. The Baudelaire trio is inseparable, and despite some unavoidable family squabbles, it’s almost as if they are telepathically connected. Sister sneaking out for a date? You’d have her back. Mum left the pineapple tarts in the oven too long? You’d say they’re toasty, not burnt. If you’re the type to ride or die, this family is for you.

YOU GOT: Orange is the New Black

No family dinner at the OITNB house(prison?)hold is quiet as everyone wants to have a say in something. They may not agree all the time, and there may even be instances where a frigid silence permeates the prison. But those pseudo hostile moments rarely last long because in the end, you know everyone’s got the family’s best interest at heart.

YOU GOT: Santa Clarita Diet

They’re a bunch of toughies and are unequivocally the bearers of hard truths. What sets them apart from the rest is that they are unapologetic, but often cause more good than harm. Just as Sheila and Joel’s passive-aggressive banter stems from affection, you’ll fit right in if you appreciate a bit of tough love!  

YOU GOT: Friends

Friends

They enjoy the company of their friends the best. Nothing makes them more pumped up than hanging out with their favourite people because they just get each other. Boundaries? They don’t exist. Secrets? Can’t keep them under wraps for more than two seconds. Whatever happens, you know that you will always have your special circle of friends that are as tight as a family can be.

YOU GOT: The Sound of Your Heart

The Sound of Your Heart

People may consider this Korean household to be ‘different’, but it’s just the path less travelled. Quite like how Jo Seok drew cartoons in his own quirky way to success, you’re a believer of alternate realities. If you love the fact that your cousin’s a professional dog cuddler or your uncle’s a feng shui master, you’re with the right fam!
