Sort of, but all of them are terrific. Especially Downton Abby. If you have Amazon Prime or Netflix, you should be able to see them there...

I just watched another episode of Craft in America on PBS.

http://www.pbs.org/craftinamerica/

This is a fantastic series that explores craft in many of its forms.

Pottery, woodworking, iron working, jewelry making, basket weaving etc.

Not only is technique shown but also the artists share the sources of their inspiration.

Wonderful!

I don't get this show on my local PBS but I did find a DVD (season 1) on Netflix, so I put it on my list. Sounds interesting, thanks.

Thank you both, jharris & JoAnn, for the Crafts info. I'll be Netflicking it, too.

I'm about 18 episodes into Breaking Bad and may not go much more. Seems like the writers sit down each week and ask, what's the most horrible thing that could happen to these people this time. And don't even think about getting to like a character -- that's a surefire way to get them offed. Downton Abbey is more my speed, but we keep losing characters there, too. Guess that's what makes drama.

I think I'm watching too much Big Bang Theory -- I find myself doing that poochy mouth thing that Kaley/Penny does so much.

Has anyone been watching The Bible on History? We recorded it, and have watched the first episode. We like it so far. It's fun to watch it while looking in the Bible to see how close they are to the actual Book.

I know there are those of us who really enjoyed the first season of Call the Midwife on PBS. Just a reminder that the new season will be starting this Easter Sunday, March 31st. Check your local listings.
This is a public service announcement ........

which book. the common ones, the more often published ones, the banned ones, etc..

my god(or should i say our god) the way they portray the stories of the old testament makes jews look really bad.

and it's terribly acted. casting is horrible, but i still am willing to watch it. i'm a week behind, so i'm intetested in seeing how they portray the new testament.

and if they add the book of mormon, or the q'oran.

before anyone gets their loincloths in a bunch, this is only my opinion. i won't argue details as per this site's t.o.s. against religious discussion.
