We had one of the most memorable experience in our lives on March 12, 2018 when we saw Netflix original series Santa Clarita Diet stars, Drew Barrymore (Shiela Hammond)  and Timothy Olyphant (Joel Hammond).

The hollywood stars had only two countries to visit and one of which they chose was Philippines. Truly honored, aren’t we?



My husband and I had VIP passes for the Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 red carpet premiere together with the other Netflix Stream Team members. We were really close with the stars. Never could have imagined I’d see them in person. This is definitely one of the best treat from Netflix to us, Stream Team, to date.

If you’ve watched Santa Clarita Diet Season 1, I’m pretty sure you got hooked up and couldn’t wait for the season 2. Oh well, the wait is over as SCD season 2 is now streaming on Netflix. The whole Season 2 was uploaded on March 23, 2018.

As I am typing this article, I am actually multi-tasking and currently watching the season 2, I’m now on episode 2 hehe 

#SantaClaritaDiet may not be your ordinary family show, but it sure has a lesson per episode. One of my favorites is supporting and being there for your partner no matter what. And, it’s exactly what my husband #DaddyDiaries and I do.

Another favorite of mine is how devoted Joel (Timothy Olyphant) is to her wife, he never gives up on her no matter what she’s become, no matter what they have and need to do, he is always with her. Shiela (Drew Barrymore), on the other hand, despite her zombie-ly attitude, she still looks after her family and their daughter, Abby, be it their physiological or emotional needs.

Just like any other families and marriages, The Hammonds go through trials and problems (well, unlike other families, their problems are different and DISTINCTIVELY unique haha)

Santa Clarita Diet is fun spirited and well, really funny series that’s perfect for you and your partner.

The SCD stars show versatility in acting on the series. Who would think that action star Timothy Olyphant can slay a comedy show? His prior roles were far from his character in SCD but he is definitely good at it

Drew Barrymore on the other hand, gave a new meaning to Zombies. Her character, eats people but she is super adorable and lovable hehe and of course, she remains a good wife and mom.

And oh, before I end this post, I’d like to share this trivia that we’ve learned from Drew and Timothy, themselves during the red carpet premiere here in Manila. Drew Barrymore has a company named Flower Beauty and she once talked to SM about bringing it here in the Philippines. Timothy Olyphant, on the other hand, used to live in Davao when his father worked for Del Monte. It was way way back, probably during his toddler years. And another thing, his great grandfather was the head engineer that built a building in UP (University of the Philippines)

Okay, goodbye for now, I’ll go back to binge-ing Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 hehe
