What I’m Watching…
I’ve had a little couch time being I’ve not been feeling tip-top. It’s had me watching some Netflix.
I finished The Crown. I really hope another season of that comes out. I’m sure some it is true…some not. I can’t image living that life. It sure has made me respect the life she has lived even more that I ever did before.
I totally recommend this if you haven’t watched. This series is rated 8.7 from IMBD.
I finished the next season of Braodchurch. I love the show but have told you all this before. I liked the newest season as well.
I highly recommend this one. Some people have started it but didn’t love it after one episode. Try three episodes. Here’s the description: “The murder of a young boy in a small coastal town brings a media frenzy, which threatens to tear the community apart.”
This series is rated 8.4 from IMBD.
After watching Broadchurch I’ve had “suggestions” come up and one of them was River. I took the suggestion and ended up liking it.
The first episode was a little confusing for me as the description will tell you ” John River is a brilliant police inspector whose genius lies side-by-side with the fragility of his mind. He is a man haunted by the murder victims whose cases he must lay to rest.”
River has a mental illness. He “sees” people who have died. Once I figured that out, I liked the show. I was actually impressed with how it was handled. It’s good to see people with mental illness not made out to be “crazy”.
I ended up really liking the show and got totally attached to River. This series is rated 8.1 from IMBD.
From here suggestions took me to watching Shetland.
I really loved this…got attached to the characters. Was heartbroken in one episode. I’m really surprised that this isn’t rated higher than the 7.9 stars….Honestly loved it! I really recommend it!
Here’s the description: “DI Jimmy Perez and his team investigate crimes within the close knit island community of Shetland.”
From there suggestions lead me to Marcella.
This was not bad. I didn’t like it as good as River. This lady investigator is married to a black man. They are a poorly cast couple. I didn’t buy that they were together at all. She seems so common and the husband very career oriented and not her social class at all.
Here is the description for Marcella:
“Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her.”
This series is rated 7.4 from IMBD.
I am currently watching Hinterland.
I like this. The episodes are 1 1/2 hours long so they get the viewers a little more in depth into the story. Description: “A noir crime drama set in Aberystwyth, Wales, where troubled DCI Tom Mathias solves murders while searching for redemption.”
This series is rated 7.6 from IMBD.
I am also watching The Killing.
Here is the description for The Killing:
“A police investigation, the saga of a grieving family, and a Seattle mayoral campaign all interlock after the body of 17-year-old Rosie Larsen is found in the trunk of a submerged car.”
This series is rated 8.2 from IMBD.
I am really liking this series. The investigation of the murder is told more like a TV drama. There are many characters and viewers get to know them all.
Can you believe me the non-television watcher has watched this much television?? I have but remember I’ve been pretty sick over the last while. Also some of them are only a few episodes. I’ll also admit to doing some binge watching. I got Netflix working in my sewing room so audio books have gotten set aside a bit for some binge watching.
Please recommend other series you’ve enjoyed. I’m always looking for something.
