I haven’t had much television or stitching time, but when I did, I hit a couple of awesome shows I have to tell you about.
Are you a PBS fan? Are you a WWII fan? If you are, you must watch Atlantic Crossing.
The show starts as WWII is erupting. It focuses on the royal family from Norway. Here is the synopsis:
“A princess steals the heart of the president of the United States in an epic drama based on the World War II relationship of Franklin Roosevelt and Norwegian Crown Princess Martha. Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex and the City) stars as Roosevelt, opposite Swedish star Sofia Helin (The Bridge) as the beautiful Martha, who flees the Nazis with her three young children and lives under Roosevelt’s protection. The eight-part series co-stars Tobias Santelmann as Crown Prince Olav and Harriet Sansom Harris as First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.”
If you go to PBS’s website they do a Fact/Fiction page for each episode and I’ve been enjoying that. I’ve found myself looking up history online too. I know that once I do that, I’ve found a show that has me hooked. I HIGHLY recommend it. It is currently playing on PBS.
I rented a movie. I rarely do that but am so glad I did. I streamed it through Amazon. You can find the movie HERE. I saw a preview of the movie and knew immediatly, if I were going to the theatre I would have like to see this so, I rented it. The movie is Six Minutes to Midnight. Judi Dench is in it so I had to give it a try.
The story is based on real events. I found the movie very interesting and it was a big treat for me to rent a movie.
Here is the synopsis:
“Summer 1939. Influential families in Nazi Germany have sent their daughters to a finishing school in an English seaside town to learn the language and be ambassadors for a future looking National Socialist. A teacher there sees what is coming and is trying to raise the alarm. But the authorities believe he is the problem.”
Here is the trailer…
Again, the movie is HERE.
Another show I watched and HIGHLY recommend is Unforgotten. I think I’ve told you this before. This is originally a PBS series. Seasons 1-3 are available on Amazon Prime. HERE is a link.
This show made me fall in love with Nicola Walker. She’s the lead in this series. She does an amazing job. I just love series.
I am NEVER someone who rewatches anything. This series I might just rewatch.
I belong to a Facebook group that is British Television related. Someone on there said that Season 4 of Unforgotten was on Youtube. I was THRILLED!! I watched it and a couple days after I saw the last episode, it was removed from Youtube. Season 4 will be aired in the Fall. In the meantime, if you haven’t watched this series, watch it!! It’s so good.
Again, I watched through Amazon Prime.
I also watched the Prembrokeshire Murders on Britbox.
Britbox does some great mini series shows that tell about old criminal cases. I’ve watched a few of them and have loved them.
Here’s a synopsis of Pembrokeshire Murders:
“The Pembrokeshire Murders is a British three-part television drama miniseries, based on the Pembrokeshire murders by Welsh serial killer John Cooper. In 2006, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins decided to reopen two unsolved 1980s murder cases linked with a string of burglaries.”
Here’s the trailer…
These are my favorites lately.
If you’ve found something interesting to watch, please share. I’m always looking for something good.
