He was born in the West End of Boston. Just prior to his passing, a Boston Channel did a special with him walking through there talking about growing up in that area. It was really interesting to watch.

Then about a month later he had died. What a shock.

I watched the premiere of Designated Survivor last week - tonight is the 2nd one and I'll be tuning in for sure. This series looks like it's going to be a good one, IMO.

(I know.....it's odd to want to watch a political series in the midst of...well, need I say more....)

Designated Survivor

We forgot to watch the Pilot last Wednesday, Cheryl, but we did go ahead and watch tonight's episode. From the online summary, I figured we could follow the story line easily enough.

It is good, isn't it? Kinda makes you wonder, though, if that would be the only solution to getting the government back on track. Too drastic for my tastes, for sure.

Kiefer Sutherland - that apple sure didn't fall far from the tree. Himself and I loved watching movies with Donald Sutherland in them.

Actually, we watched "Brain Dead" on CBS during the summer. It was one of those short, 13-episode summer filler shows and It Was Hilarious! Bugs invading the brains of politicians on Capital Hill? Explains EVERYTHING!

CG.... Yep, that would explain it! LOL

Yes, Kiefer is excellent in this series so far. I love how he switches seamlessly between the loving family man, dealing with the humble doubts of having the presidency thrust upon him, and sticking to his guns against the strong willed General regarding the attack. Good show.

If you or anyone else would like to see last week's pilot, here it is. It's about 43 minutes long.

Designated Survivor: Series Premiere: Pilot - Watch Season 1 Episode 01


(hmmm....there seem to be intermittent blurry scenes in the video - don't know whether it's from the site or just on my 6 yr. old laptop....)

Cranford is a ten year old BBC show but I just discovered it tonight on Amazon.
Judy Dench, the butler for Downtown Abby, the postmistress from Lark Rise to Candleford. I'm hooked.

No, but I have been following Poldark. Also the Durrells of Corfu. Begging time is coming up. So the Durrells will have the finale this coming Sunday.

When it is begging time, you get may 40 minutes out of the hour if you are lucky, and the rest of the time is begging for money. So I don't get into any shows that go into that mode. But the good news is that the new season for Doc Martin should be coming up soon.

I didn't realise that he had died.
