Also watched CB Strike on HBO? though I think it is streaming on HULU. Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger have chemistry and I enjoy the mysteries. I hope they keep filming them.
One of my favourite series of recent years. Waiting impatiently for the latest episodes (Lethal White) to land here, particularly as I've had the book sitting waiting to be read for months, as I prefer to watch adaptations before reading the originals.

Trivia: Tom Burke is the son of David Burke who played Watson to Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes in the Granada Holmes series.

I just finished the first two episodes of It‘s a Sin. What a great show. It really brings into perspective how far we as a society has come. It is horrifyingly how some of the AIDS victims were treated in the hospital
We have come along way when it comes to AIDS, but the parallels with the current YKW suggests our societies still have some issues.

It is a great series. Episode Three is pretty emotional so make sure you have some tissues to hand.

We watched the documentary What Would Sophia Loren Do? on Netflix. It's only 30 minutes and talks about the lifelong infatuation that a New Jersey Italian American grandmother has had for Sophia Loren. It was made by her filmmaker daughter. It's very simple, low key, and sweet. My dear husband, who has a thing about the appreciation of older people, loved it.

I think in future years we will watch in horror how LTC has handled the current *********

We watched Nomadland last night. Were even tempted to see it at the theater since the chart was only showing one group of 2 seats taken and I thought the big screen would enhance the experience, but did the Hulu free trial instead. I liked the film and I'm glad I saw it, and it gave us a lot to talk about, but it's not something I would see again and I'm not sure if I would call the film itself Oscar worthy. For Mcdormand herself, probably, and a yes for cinematography. The corner of SD where much of the movie was filmed is a favorite destination of ours and it was very cool recognizing so many familiar spots that we love. Now that we have Hulu for a little bit, we need to find other things to watch. On a brief scan, I saw some documentaries that look
interesting.

I finished watching Dublin Murders. I really liked it.

How did you watch it?

Most of the stuff on Disney’s Star service is old but they do have Helstrom but only the first two episodes.
