I know you will be reading this after Christmas, but if you did not watch Dolly Parton’s “Christmas on the Square,” it’s worth seeing. Dolly wrote the story, the music and produced this gem. And, can we just agree we all need a little more Dolly in our lives right now?
Speaking of Netflix, I continue to enjoy “Call the Midwife.” The taping of “Bruce Springsteen on Broadway” is so entertaining, even if you’re not a Springsteen fan; he is an excellent storyteller. I did not like “Hillbilly Elegy,” but I will say Glenn Close’s performance is spectacular. If you haven’t seen “Gilmore Girls,” please start today! The second season of “Virgin River” was just released, and it is a sweet show, much like a warm cup of cocoa. I had COVID-19 when “The Crown” was released and finished it in two days. The performances are pitch perfect. “The Holiday Movies That Made Us” is a fun behind-the-scenes peek of the movies we all love.
If you have HBO Max, there are three shows I am CRAZY about. “The Undoing” is a riveting crime drama about a pediatric oncologist who may or may not be a killer. This is not a family friendly show! The docu-series “Murder on Middle Beach” delivers one heart-stopping moment after another. It is the true story of the murder of Barbara Hamburg and is produced by her son as he seeks to know the truth. “The Murders at White House Farm” is excellent. It is based on actual murders outside England in 1985.
On Hulu, we just started “Blue Bloods,” which is about a family of police officers and lawyers in New York. Also, if you have not started “The Good Doctor,” I highly recommend it. It follows the life of a brilliant doctor who has Asperger syndrome. It’s an incredibly moving series. There is a fascinating series called “Cults and Extreme Belief.” Episode six features Chattanooga and the Yellow Deli restaurant near UTC. The first episode is about the NXIVM organization and leads up to the arrests of several members and their leader.
This month I didn’t watch anything on Prime Video, Disney Plus or Apple Plus so nothing to report on that end. Please always email any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay warm and healthy and keep passing the popcorn ...
