What I’ve Been Watching

I’ve been trying to get every bit of stitching time in.  I’ve wanted to finish my Anniversaries of the Heart Cross Stitch project.  I watch television while I stitch so…here is what I was watching while I stitched.

Someone suggested I watch Prey.  I found it on Hulu.

Prey (British TV series) - Wikipedia
I loved this.  It’s a cop whodunit.  I love those.

Here is the trailer.

Here’s the description:
When DS Marcus Farrow is put in the frame for the murder of his wife and child he has no choice but to make an escape and try to clear his name.”

There are two seasons of this.

I watched…

What I’ve Been Watching

I’ve been working to squeeze in more cross-stitch time recently so that means I’ve been watching a bit more television.  I have quite the variety that I’ve been watching.  Here goes…

I watched LuLa Rich using Amazon Prime.  There are four episodes of this documentary.  I found it very interesting as my niece and daughter Kalissa both sold LuLaRoe for a short period of time.  I owned several pairs of their leggings.

Here is the synopsis of the show:
LuLaRoe, the billion dollar clothing empire accused of misleading thousands of women with their multi-level marketing platform.”

Here is the trailer.

Last time I did an update on what I was watching I told you about the streaming channel Tubi.  It’s a free channel but has commercials in it.  I have been enjoying more shows from it.  My latest is… Continue reading

What I’m Watching…

I watch television when I stitch and I thought I’d share what has been keeping my interest lately.

I watched Home Fires and found it to be wonderful.  I watched it on Amazon Prime. Home Fires - Series 2 [DVD] : Movies & TVHere’s a little synopsis of the show:
“`Home Fires’ is a drama series inspired by Julie Summers’ nonfiction book `Jambusters’. The story follows a group of women living in a rural Cheshire village during World War II. With the war occupying their husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers, the women are forced to cope with the pressures of living with limited resources in a nation of disarray. Through their difficulties, the ladies find strength by forming the Great Paxford Women’s Institute, which helps them maintain hope and order in their community as Britain crumbles around them.”

Here is the trailer for season one.

There are three seasons.  Sadly, season three ends at a bit of a cliffhanger, and no more seasons were made.  It’s still worth the watch.

I was surprised that I hadn’t discovered the show before.  I’m typically watching out for this type of show.

That gave me the idea to type into Google, “Shows like Home Fires”.  A wonderful list came up.  Many I have seen…many I haven’t.  The list I found was great and would tell me how I could watch the shows.  There were quite a few things I haven’t seen that were being offered on Tubi.

I didn’t know what Tubi was.  So I looked it up.  It’s a free channel I can get through my Roku.  It has commercials and I’ve gotten to the point that commercials are annoying to me…but I sucked it up and decided to give it a try.

One of the shows that came up was Anzac Girls.

ANZAC Girls (Series) - TV Tropes
I was so happy.  I found another good show!!  Here is the trailer for it.

… and there is the synopsis:

When folks think about the people involved in wars, they usually think about the soldiers who fight the battles. Often forgotten are others in the war zones performing different, but still important, duties. “ANZAC Girls,” tells rarely told true stories of nurses who served with the Australian Army Nursing Service during World War I. The tales describe nurses who rose to meet the challenges of their profession while witnessing the brutality and heroism associated with war. The series is based on Peter Rees’ book “The Other Anzacs,” in addition to diaries, letters, photographs, and other historical documents.”

I really loved this one too.

While browsing on Tubi I found some movies I had wanted to see and hadn’t.

I watched Sarah’s Key.

I had read the book a long time ago and I couldn’t remember how the book ended.

Can you believe now I want to go back and read the book again??

Here is the trailer for the movie.

I found the movie The Glass Castle…I’ve watched the movie and read this book but, I watched the movie again.  I rarely do that.

The next thing I watched was on Netflix.  The show was Clickbait.

This one really held my attention.  I didn’t get much stitching done while watching this.  It is made in a format I really love.  There is one crime.  There are lots of characters.  Each episode focuses on one character and what their part, if there is one, in the crime.  Oh, I just loved it.

Here is the synopsis:
“When family man Nick Brewer is abducted in a crime with a sinister online twist, those closest to him race to uncover who is behind it and why.”

Here is the trailer…

That’s what I’ve been watching.  I’ve actually been on a really great streak finding lots of good things to watch.  If you have anything to recommend, I’d love to hear about it.

What I’m Watching/Listening to…

Do you ever get in a rut?  I sure am.  Being I had a week of vacation in July…then had almost two weeks off in August due to my exposure to Covid, I’ve listened to so many audiobooks.  The series I am watching has come to an end.  I’m just tired of it all.

My audiobooks have gotten to be a little more like background noise and not something I am engaged in…so.  I decided to change things up a bit.  I’ve been listening to podcasts.

I like true crime so much of what I’ve been listening to is true crime.  Counter-Clock is one I really have enjoyed.  This takes one crime and over the course of 10 or so episodes, it dissects the crime.  If you are listening to this one make sure to start with season one episode one as the stories later connect.
