Dirk Gently Is Back!!!


Yasss! Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective Agency is finally back! I’ve been waiting for Season 2 on Hulu. I enjoyed the original BritVersion and this reboot is pretty good. Glad I noticed the new episodes today. It was a great break after today’s World Cup Games (still shocked about Messi). I like the quirky humor and the supernatural theme in the episodes. The show also appeals to my morbid sense of humor. Seasons 1 and 2 are now on Hulu, so enjoy. By the time you read this, I will have binge-watched half the episodes.

 

Knife Storyline: The Conclusion (EastEnders)

Well, it’s been a week since EastEnders Shakil Kazemi (Shaheen Jafargholi) and Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) were stabbed and left for dead in the Queen Vic alley.

Shetland: BritBox Watchlist Favorite

Enjoying an evening with Chardonnay, coding, and Shetland. #100DaysofCode

I’ve enjoyed the other seasons of the show, so, of course, I was excited to hear Season 4 was streaming on BritBox. I watched all six episodes while coding a sample webpage. Some people listen to music while they code. I prefer to watch/listen to BritMystery/Crime television shows. Shetland became my favorite because I’ve traveled to Scotland a few times and love the country. I love seeing the beautiful countryside again as Perez tries to solve the crime.

The show also reminds me of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple. She said it best:

One does see so much evil in a small village… Miss Jane Marple

So, murder and crime on the Shetland Islands seem appropriate.

My New BritBox Favorite: Broken with Sean Bean

I started watching Broken with Sean Bean on BritBoxUS three months ago. I binge-watched the rest of Season 1 after the first episode. Now, I’m waiting patiently for Season 2. (Please tell me there will be a Season 2!)

Bean plays Catholic priest, Father Michael Kerrigan. He struggles to accept his past “missteps” and to be a “good priest. I’ve been a practicing Catholic since April 2016. I’ve also had moments where I’ve struggled with maintaining the message and spirit of the mass homily. I found the show to be refreshing and comforting. Continue reading

Quote: He’ll wake up… (Peaky Blinders)

He’ll wake up. Granted he won’t have any teeth left, but he will be a wiser man for it. And the last thing he’ll remember is your funny little joke…

The Electric Vendetta, Midsommer Murders (2001): Amanda Mealing 

The Electric Vendetta, Midsommer Murders (2001)

I’ve watched every episode of Midsommer Murders over the years. It wasn’t until last night (04 October 17) that I realized Amanda Mealing (Connie Beauchamp, Casualty) was getting “some love” surrounded by crop circles. Continue reading
