Have you all been watching Victoria on PBS?
It's very beautiful to watch. Victoria's dresses and lace necklines are stunning.
The first two episodes were....er...um...boring...to me.
Episodes three and four have been much better.
What do you think? Are you loving it?
I have been sitting very much on the weekends. Sitting and resting.
Sitting and resting and watching.
All sorts of things on Netflix and Amazon.
Here are some of the shows I have binged on and have been watching lately;
Westworld (HBO) -Science Fiction. Very weird. Robot theme park. Great Acting. Rated R
Stranger Things- Science Fiction. Katie and I both really liked this! Kids. Reminded us of ET.
The Crown- Excellent. A bit slow. But most of you will LOVE this.
Victoria- Enjoyable. Beautiful. Not as good as the movie the lovely The Young Victoria (2009)
The Man in the High Castle (Netflix)- Engrossing. What if the Nazi's won the war and came to America.
Outlander- (Showtime) I love this program. We do not have Showtime so I purchase the episodes...thus I have only watched the good parts ;o) If I preview an episode and it is all warring....I skip it and look for Jamie and Claire portions. I know this is unthinkable to some...but I really don't like warring.
And speaking of War.
Hacksaw Ridge (movie)- Amazing true story of faith during times of war. I could not watch approximately 1 hour of this film. Rated Gruesome.
Lion- AMAZING MOVIE. True story of a man looking for his lost mother and brother in India.
The OA- Science Fiction Thriller. About a blind girl who goes missing and her return....now with sight.
The Leftovers- What happens when there is a partial rapture?
The Path- Aaron Paul in a cult.
Gilmore Girls- Great fun.
The Americans- can't get into it.
House of Cards- I resisted this for a long time. But it is kind of amazing. Rated R
History of the Eagles- You know, the band from the 70's. We just loved this documentary!!!
Jim Gaffigan Cinco- WATCH THIS!! It is hilarious.
Catastrophe (amazon) - This show is hilarious. It is very racy and raw. But I think the writing is amazing.
What do I recommend?
If you love science fiction I would pick The OA for you or Stranger Things.
If you love historical, British pieces, I would recommend The Crown and The Young Victoria movie if you have not seen it.
If you like men in kilts, watch The Outlander. The acting and story are tremendous. (if you do not like nudity on screen, don't watch this.)
For political intrigue watch House of Cards.
For clean comedy watch Jim Gaffigan:Cinco and for very mature comedy watch Catastrophe.
It is Oscar month so TCM is showing Oscar winners all month. Now, Voyager was on this morning ;o)
Patrick and I check the channel regularly for some fine movie choices.
