November means spring for us down here in the Southern hemisphere, so we’re blinking into the light and dragging ourselves away from TV screens in search of a tan and some much needed Vitamin D. But…we have had a glut of TV series to glom and feast on during the darker months. Of course, for those of you beginning the hibernating there’s a lot to catch up on…
Be still my beating heart! I didn’t read Cross stitch so I had no idea what I was in for. I have loved Every. Single. Moment. (Plus, I was so enamoured with the 18th century woollen clothes I’ve started doing a bit of knitting myself!). We’re now just getting to the end of season two and can’t wait for the next one!
(I know, it’s an old one, but I’m just catching up.)
I’m a huge fan of Nordic Noir, so enjoyed this murder mystery…about a body that is found on the bridge between Denmark and Sweden. Two cops–one from each country–have to work together to solve the whodunnit. Interesting…although it could have been a bit shorter. It has subtitles, so you do have to be quite focused. There was one point when we decided (that is, hubby and I) to play a drinking game every time they said ‘tak’ (thank you), but, amazingly, they say it A LOT, so that game didn’t last long.
Hunt For The Wilderpeople
Not a series, but a film. If you haven’t seen this, then do so. NOW. I know I’m biased, because it’s a New Zealand film, but it’s funny and emotional and an adventure…about a boy put in less than perfect foster care then going on the run and being chased by hapless police and authorities. It’s won many awards across the globe…go on, watch it!
I’m getting a list ready of shows/movies I need to see and so far this includes:
Stranger Things (Any good?)
Any others? What are you watching or looking forward to, or have recently enjoyed? Any recommendations?
