We've also been watching "A Chef's Life" on PBS for years; it's also available on Netflix. We went to Kinston, NC, last April for an afternoon snack (at their oyster bar restaurant nearby) and dinner at Chef and the Farmer and it was a wonderful experience. We're going again next Friday. Can't wait.

I like the old movies, but severely dislike Svengoolie.

Top of the Lake

Watching Top of the Lake on Hulu. It's a 5-year-old, seven episode, BBC crime drama mystery series with Elisabeth Moss, from The Handmaid's Tale. Holly Hunter has a supporting role.
The plot is primarily driven by the mystery plus the characters and their related backstories, not shoot-outs and car chases. I'm starting episode six of seven and enjoying it as much as any TV I've seen in a long time.

The Outer Limits usually airs Saturday nights, early Sunday mornings around 1:00 AM, if you're awake. MeTV. ( A US cable network).

Here's one ending from The Outer Limits. An episode called "The Invisables". At the end, the Control Voice sums up it up like this...

"You do not know these men. You may have looked at them, but you did not see them. They are the wind that blows newspapers down a gutter on a windy night and sweeps the gutter clean."

Heavvvvy!
I'll have to look that up on MeTV and record a few of them! Does that show ever bring back memories...my folks, little brother and I never missed an episode back in the day, we huddled together in the living room weekly to watch The Outer Limits. I still remember the opening monologue....

Watching/listening to the third hour of the Today Show while going through e-mails & waiting for part of breakfast to cook.

I'm an NCIS fan too but what is is about their attitude to their women characters? They keep killing them off - Kate, The woman in charge whose name I forget and Ziva. I'm waiting for them to do Abby in (don't tell me if they have - we're several series behind you). Seems a bit misogynist to me.

I want to smack the Di Nozzo character though. Can't get rid of him fast enough.

We've been enjoying the Netflix series "The Crown". I heard on the news that Prince Harry really likes it also, confessing he's often regretted being a Royal, and his true affection for his Grandmother has been enhanced by this series.

I found Charles III to be both interesting and a bit surprising...

For whatever reason I didn't expect to see that scenario played out on screen while the Queen lives ..
