Send it to Canada we are only in the 50's i sure could send you my rain:(:(hugs
Thanks for sharing the movies. I'm looking forward to checking some of the ones I haven't seen out. The Closer is one of my favorite series. Love to listen to audios too. Just finished the Zoo Keepers Wife, excellent. Next on my list is The Girl on the Train.
I have found another series worth mentioning. It is call Murdoch Mysteries. Set in late 1800s Toronto, Murdoch is a detective who uses "new" methods of solving crimes. It is delightful. Hugs. Nan
I love Murdoch Mysteries too
We saw them all and absolutely loved the entire series! I was sad to see it end. We are currently enjoying "Dr. Blake", a mystery series set in Australia, as well as "800 Words", a comedy/drama set in New Zealand. We get these shows here in Florida through a subscription service called Acorn TV, which offers many fine programs, most much better than American shows. Enjoy Miss Fisher and Jack! : )
Funny you should mention Miss Fisher as I heard it didn't go too well in America as it was thought to be too promiscuous. I wish they would do more of them.
Murdoch is another good show set in Canada in the 1800's have a laugh each week even though it is a Murder mystery show. Seems as though everything was invented in Canada at Station house 4. LOL
I have seen all of these and thought they were very good.
Father Brown, Heartland, Bomb Girls, Call the Midwife, Foyle's War. All very good!!!
Thanks for the recommendation, always looking for something good to watch on weekends. I usually get about 2 hours on Saturdays that I actually can sit down and relax and watch television. We have enjoyed "Call the Midwife" on Netflix. It's based in the UK, very well written and well acted. The dialog is done by Vanessa Redgrave.
"Call the midwife" was a brilliant show Jerrilyn, I loved it. With regard to Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries the Aussie girls are right the costumes are amazing.
Essie Davis is one of Australia's beautiful actors. Everything she does is fantastic. Love Dr. Blake Mysteries and I heard recently they are doing a new McLeod's Daughters. That was a great show. Australia has some gifted people. ❤️ Chris
Yes I would recommend the "Call the midwife. Awesome show!
Looking forward to Winter and I've got these on my list. :)
Isn't it great that Netflix has them. I watched all the episodes last summer. Here in Tennessee, we are also hot but add in the humidity. My hair looks like the Lion King. Keep Cool
Yes, I watched these on our local television. Fun series, for sure and aren't the costumes absolutely beautiful. I live in South Australia, but the series was set in the city of Melbourne [East of where I live, in the State of Victoria]
have you watched the British series called "Doc Martin" ? It features an actor called Martin Clunes and he plays a doctor in small village. He was an surgeon but developed a phobia to blood, so he's in this little town. Very short on bed-side manner. Quite a funny show, but with serious undertone. I liked it, anyway but some may not.
Will try that one next. Thanks.
I love Doc Martin, too!
The ABC have been running them again on Saturday afternoons . The costumes from this series have been on display .I saw something in the paper about Essie Davies & there was a mention about possibly more episodes.Have you seen a series called The Doctor Blake Mysteries set in the 1950's in Ballerat ?
Must look that one up. I especially like mysteries. Hugs.
I loved Phrynnie Fisher too. I hope they add new episodes. I also enjoyed Murdock and all the British murder sleuths (Midsommer Murders, Father Brown, etc.)
I enjoyed the new version of Midsommer Muders and Father Brown.
I love those too and Grantchester as well. But those come on our PBS station and I can't seem to find the very beginning without paying. Didn't know there was a new version of Midsommer Murders. Hugs.
Thanks for the tip. We just finished watching 6 seasons of Blue Bloods and loved it. And I have enjoyed the series called Super vet. It's about a British vet who runs an incredible service saving animals and getting them back on their feet. I hope we get more ideas from other Cuties.
Coincidence! We've been burning here in San Antonio and I just discovered Miss Fisher. I'm glad to get your review because I've only watched the first one so far. It's running on cable and I didn't know there were so many episodes. Thank you!
Nan same here in California.
I am still not able to do any sewing since "Happy Place" is upstairs and stairs are still a no no for my mending leg. I am not up on movies either, so I appreciate the recommendation.
What were thinking putting the sewing room upstairs to begin with? Aaugh! Miss mine, too.
Ha, ha. I do not always have to deal with a broken leg, so having my sewing room upstairs is under normal circumstances ideal. I can leave the mess I usually create and no one would see it. All bedrooms are downstairs.
Oh, Nan, I sympathize deeply. Early in the years I lived in Texas, we had a heat wave - I think nearly two weeks over 107. The next summer everyone was wearing t shirts "I survived the heat wave of 19__." We had seeded (by hydromulch) a lawn that summer. The hydromulch will die unless you keep it wet. THAT was a horrible experience. It has taken a long time for it to be funny when I tell it, but now it is!
Thanks for the tip, Nan....I will have to check it out! We have Netflix, but I don't know many shows to watch there, so I do appreciate the input. Anyone have any suggestions for Amazon Prime or Hulu, they would be welcome too!
I have the same problem and came across this series by accident.
I seem to have seen a lot of rain... and today its windy too. I am enjoying listening to audio books which I find is a great accompaniment to sewing. . If I could send some rain to you I would happily accept some sun as a swap.
I love the idea of listening to books while sewing. My husband just started to listen to them in the car. Will have to ask him about setting it up in the sewing room. Thanks for the idea.
I listen on my phone or laptop
I have been listening to books on CD in the sewing room as well. They are so addicting I have gone through 3 in the last 2 weeks.
