Finishing a series

Last summer Mama and I started watching a British TV show called “New Tricks” at the recommendation of some friends. The quirky cold case crime drama aired for 12 seasons. It took us about 7 months to get through all 107 episodes on Hulu, and we loved them! Today’s #OneGoodThing was finishing a fantastic series…

Grace and Frankie are funnier than ever

The latest season of “Grace and Frankie” was released on Netflix on Friday. Mama and I have been savoring the episodes, forcing ourselves to stop the back-to-back binge in an attempt to make the fun last longer.

Most satisfying season premiere ever

Since we don’t have the good fortune to be Canadians, we had to wait for Season 11 of Murdoch Mysteries. Episode 1 is now finally available on AcornTV, and Mama and I watched it today.

Miriam “Midge” Maisel is a quirky, persistently cheerful, 1950s New York housewife, whose shmuck of a husband leaves her in a spectacularly…

Delightful British bakers

We have found a new show to binge-watch on Netflix and it is quite endearing! “The Great British Baking Show” has been around for several years, but we’ve only just gotten hooked. Mama and I really enjoy this show because the 12 amateur bakers competing are humble and kind. We enjoy drooling over their creativity,…
