I’ve been in the living room a little more as of late. With Rosie here I haven’t done much in the sewing room. I moved my Featherweight to the main floor and have been sewing from there. I’ve also been doing a little more snuggling and that means time on the couch…and that means more TV time.
I finished the recent season of The Crown on Netflix.
Oh my…I loved it. I need to remind myself not to speed through a season and savor it.
Olivia Colman is now playing the part of the queen.
I watched her in Broadchurch and loved that series. She does an amazing job in this series. Check out this real picture of the queen compared to the actress.
I have to say that I previously didn’t think much of Prince Charles. He seemed so plain. I hated that he married Princess Diana and then didn’t make a marriage of it. (I know she didn’t either) Somehow watching this and seeing some behind the scenes things, I have a lot more respect for him….I’m hoping the show is accurate as to what happened.
If you’ve not watched The Crown, I highly recommend it. The show has had me Googling for more information on the monarchy…it’s a good enough show that it makes me want to know more. I would sincerely like to scream at the writers, “SLOW DOWN- You are telling the story too fast. I want many more seasons of this and if you keep telling the stories so quickly, there won’t be many more seasons”. The show has fast forwarded through 25 years in 2 seasons. Ahhh..It makes me a little sad.
I’ve watched a few things on BritBox. 15 Days came up as a recommended show. I gave it a try. Here’s what I thought of it….
The show wasn’t too bad but a little too many suspects to make it plausible. Also, there wasn’t a single character in the entire show that I liked. The family was filled with ugly violent people. I mean ugly on the inside. This doesn’t mean it was a bad show…Just not awesome.
I also watch The Bay on Britbox. I looks like this is also available on Prime. This was pretty good.
Here is the official synopsis.
“When Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong is assigned to a missing persons investigation in Morecambe, at first it seems like any other, tragic, but all too familiar. As a police Family Liaison Officer, she is trained never to get emotionally involved.”
I found the story interesting..I didn’t attach to the main character and I’ve learned that I like shows so much better if I do….but not a bad series.
I started in on The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco.
These are interesting and not too bad. They do remind be a bit of “Murder She Wrote” episodes. The ending can be guessed and although they are mysteries, there’s not a ton of mystery to them.
Here is the synopsis of the show, “Four women of high intelligence, a capacity for pattern recognition and a knack for decryption, use their skills to solve murders overlooked by police.”
As with any show that is set at a different period of time, I do really enjoy the costuming.
That’s what I’ve been watching. I’ve snuck in a few shows here and there of other things but I’m still patiently waiting for another series to click and get me drawn in. What have you been watching?
