While I was on my diet for testing I got into a habit of making my supper and then taking it to the living room and eating in front of the television. Normally when Karl is home and I’m not on the diet we always eat at the table. By going in the living room, I don’t have to see the YUMMY food he is eating and the stuff I’m eating. Seriously, BD (before diet) I never realized how much cheese, yogurt and sour cream I consumed. Mexican food, for me, NEEDS sour cream. But..I’m done with the diet now so enough ramblings and onto today’s post.
Being I was in the living room so much, I got in a lot more television time than normal.
I finished up Shetland. Oh my. I love that show….really love that show. I highly recommend it. I got the last two seasons on Britbox.
I’ve mentioned the show before and I’ll mention it again. If it has another season, I’ll be sure to watch it too. Seriously…one of my favorites for sure.
It’s a cop show set in the Shetland Island. The scenery is amazing. I love seeing the differences in Shetland homes compared to American homes. Really the plot lines, characters and scenery all have me wanting more.
Once I finished that I moved on to …Unbelievable series. This came from Netflix.
Here’s what this show is about:
“Based on the true story of Marie, a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped, and the two female detectives who followed the path to the truth.”
This show was good to watch. I have a terrible time saying it was “good”…after all this was something someone lived. I am honored that this gal was brave enough to tell the story. It was engaging and the acting was good.
The last show I watched was from Britbox. It was a PBS production. There are two parts only but they are 90 minutes long.
You all know I enjoy historical fiction and series of that nature are intriguing to me as well.
Here is a little description on it…
“A gentle Jamaican woman reunited with her husband in post-World War II London encounters both racism and homesickness as she adjusts to her new life.”
The story is split as part is told from Jamaica and part from London. I adore the costuming all the other depiction of times before, during and following WWII.
Hands down, if you’re only going to watch one of the shows…make it Shetland. Seriously…my favorite. I’d love for you all to chime in and let me know what you are watching.
