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.
Here’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.
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 The series is based on Peter Rees’ book “The Other Anzacs,” in addition to diaries, letters, photographs, and other historical documents.”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.
