We drove around last Saturday and saw a HUGE painted pice of plywood in a yard along the road. It said “Honk if you think Carole killed her husband.” We were shocked someone would have that in their yard and thought it was about someone they knew. We came home and turned on Netflix and watch the Tiger King. We cracked up laughing that we were so ignorant.

Finished season 3 of Ozark and season 4 of Money Heist. Just started Season 3 of Fauda tonight. All worthwhile shows!

Today, I spent three hours watching Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera...
The 25th Anniversary show from Royal Albert Hall on YouTube's The Show Must Go On channel.
We used our big-screen TV. Pretty remarkable.

------------------
It reminded me of the time I saw Eric Clapton in concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

We just noticed we get free HBO this weekend so we are recording some crap we probably won’t watch. :)

Now my wife finds “The Descendants “ on so that’s what we’re watching now.

Such a great movie. I enjoy watching it most for the scenery. I like identifying places where they filmed it.

My favorite line: "We're haole as sh*t." Any Caucasian who lives in Hawaii and loves it as much as I did can identify with that line. No matter how much you want to be part of Hawaiian culture, there will always be a limiting factor. I could walk the walk and talk the talk, but at the end of the day, bloodline was a determining factor. My Local friends understood and accepted me, but even they knew I would always be something of an outsider.

No doubt. Even someone who visits often can relate.:thumbup:

I have been watching a lot of CNN lately due to the Covid 19 happenings and the Trump factor. I actually enjoy listening to Chris Cuomo and find his closing monologues very uplifting. Not political here...it's just that I enjoy how he frames his arguments for a position.

Then for some levity my husband and I just finished watching Season 3 of Ozarks. OMG. The first two seasons were intriguing but this last one just blew me away with the acting. Wendy just stole the series...she is an amazing actress and in a show with 3 other strong female characters they tore up the screen with their outsized personalities. Lady Macbeth had nothing on these four ladies.

With our lives being mostly turned upside down with the social isolation and distancing my husband and I have been doing....Ozarks felt like we were just at home with normal mayhem and not the one that was just outside our doors.

Having said that....here in Canada we seem to be following established medical protocol and our world seems more or less sane. Keep calm and carry on...our British inheritance is our bedrock for social behavior. Boring never felt so safe.

Ozarks is a great series

So is Money Heist and Yellowstone

I hesitated watching this as I thought "but live shows are so much better". I'd seen Phantom twice in San Francisco. But I watched, and I'm so glad I did. The voices were amazing. And if you watch all the way through to the end, since it was the 25th anniversary, there are some great surprises. Now I'm hoping they do "Evita".

I have to agree with Rick and your stepdad, Cindy! Bosch is one of my favorites!

If you haven't watched Murdoch Mysteries it is an amazing series. It is Canadian and you can get them on Acorn. They are on Season 13 and still going strong. Acorn is a $4.99 per month add-on through Amazon Prime. I would rate this as the best on-going series. It has light humor and alot of scientific discoveries which we now know to be true thrown into the each episode to help solve the crime and the series is set at the turn of the century, late 1800 and early 1900.

We also just finished 6 seasons of Brokenwood Mysteries from New Zealand. Their accent is a little hard to understand and the series is solid.

We do not care for most American-made shows while we love Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and British shows and we watch these mainly on Acorn and some on Prime.

Currently, my DW, DD and I are binge watching The Golden Girls on Netflix. I had forgotten how funny it was. DW and I watched it, of course, during its original run from 1985-1992. Our daughter was born in 1984 so she wasn’t old enough to enjoy it then. I think she caught me watching it on cable a couple of weeks ago (when I couldn’t find anything else) and heard me laughing so she asked if we could all watch it together. If you can get past the video quality, it is fantastic. It holds up really well and the jokes are just non-stop. I rarely laugh out loud at anything on TV. I do it constantly watching this show and so do my wife and daughter. I’m glad we found it again.

Foreign series like Rake from Australia, Occupied from Norway, Bordertown from Finland are a few. I search them out.

Great television is great anytime. I agree about Golden Girls - it was smart writing, a little on the edge, and believable. The casting was perfect. (Did you know when they started they wanted Betty White to play Blanche, based on the Sue Ann character on The Mary Tyler Moore Show? Betty turned it down because she'd already played that part. She was great playing Rose instead.)

I saw a Facebook post today where someone posted a video clip from Cheers, where a customer said he worked for a virus laboratory, working on deadly viruses. As soon as he left the bar, everybody sprang into action, cleaning up after him. It was funny, but hit a little close to home, thirty years later. :)

No, I don’t think I’ve ever heard that. I do remember that Estelle Getty was actually the youngest of the four.

Had to meet up with the electrician on Thursday at my mountain vacation home (2.5 hour drive) plus moving some antique bedroom furniture up there. And stayed for 4 nights. I DO NOT HAVE cable TV up there (see avatar picture) … it is in the woods in the Poconos Mountains and I had it built in 1977. I came back today (Sunday) and I went NO WHERES for anything. In the woods miles from TV broadcast centers (remember, cable TV was first started in the coal mountains of the Poconos) …. NYC and Philadelphia are 100+/- miles away.

First few years, the was some :eek:ver the air' TV, Then the local stations did NOT convert to digital broadcast medium.

Recently, the Federal government mandated that "over the air" access be increased. I went from watching 1 or 2 channels and MANY DVD movies to 10 "over the air channels". This is not NYC, PHL or Chicago level TV programming with ABC, CBS or NBC It is the local TV stations broadcasting from Allentown …. or off towers with dishes from somewhere with reruns from the before the 1950 and up. Yes,, some black and white shows TV series and the early years of color. Better than nothing … more choices today than a few years ago.

We have 55 inch flat screen. For the past 7 years we have been running vacation photos through AppleTV. DW is an avid photographer & we have thousands of photos. They run as a screen saver on the flat screen during the day. In the evenings we watch videos of DD and her dog on TV. We cast them onto the screen from our iPhones. Then we watch about 3 to 4 hours of TV through various apps. Everything we watch is commercial free, including The Voice. We watch shows from Europe and Great Britain, medical dramas, police procedurals, movies, etc. We haven't watched the NEWS since we got rid of Comcast and DirectTV.

PBS app, Prime Video, Hulu, Acorn, Britbox, CBS all access, Netflix are most of the apps we use.

I enjoy seeing the vacation shots during the day. We don't sit and watch. We go about our routine and we both will remark about a shot on the tv and say to ourselves or each other that was a great day or great shot. Many times I get the place wrong but DW will tell me where and when the shot was taken. Yes, there are repeats but there are many that I haven't seen in a long time.

We're enjoying Money Heist so much that we bought another Sony smart blue ray player that we hooked up to the bedroom TV.

Now we can binge-watch upright in the family room or horizontally in bed.

Is this a great country or what ?
