What I am watching I have a confession to make. I never watched the original “Lost in Space“. They never aired it in Italy when I was a kid, so there’s that. I catch my husband watch an episode here and there but to me it just looks so cheesy it’s unwatchable. I find that certain shows don’t age well if you didn’t watch them as a kid. I could watch the Original Star Trek or even Space 1999 untilRead More →

What I am watching I am a huge Trekkie as my friends know. I used to go to Star Trek conventions back in the early 90s! I am also, shall we say, an equal opportunity Trekkie. I like all Trek shows, movies, all the time, unlike my sweet hubby who is only a big fan of the original show. He’s watched the movies with me and a few of the Borg episodes of the Next Generation, but that’s about it.Read More →

What I am watching When season 1 of 13 Reasons Why dropped on Netflix last year I wasn’t interested in watching it at all. Let’s face it, it has been a LONG time since I was in High School, and little by little, year after year, movies or shows that depict teenagers’ lives are less and less relevant nor interesting to me. Then on a talk show one of the actors that portrays a parent of these kids started explainingRead More →

What I am watching I have been a Chicago Fire (NBC) fan from the very beginning and the show never disappoints. I am not sure what exactly I find compelling, but it does remind me of the old 1970s shows like Emergency or even CHiPs, which I grew up on. What drew me in initially was the fact that Jesse Spencer from “House” was going to be starring in it, but after watching the very first few episodes I realized thatRead More →

What I am watching I was looking for something to binge on Netflix last month and after watching the first 15 minutes of 3 different shows, I landed on Alias Grace and it immediately grabbed me. Alias Grace takes place in Canada in the 1840s and beyond, and tells the story of Grace Marks, a young, poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant who finds herself accused and convicted of a double murder. The actress that plays the role is riveting,Read More →

What I am watching Just before I left for my trip to Stanford for Nicky’s surgery I finished watching the 2nd and, may I say, glorious, season of Victoria. Because I was enthralled by the Olympics and busy watching Downton Abbey every spare moment, I taped all the episodes that aired on PBS in January and February and then I binged. I love binging!!! I find myself going to Wikipedia to learn more about this person or that person orRead More →

What I am watching I know I am extremely late to the party, but by the time I heard about how fabulous this show was it was too late to start watching from the beginning. Looking for something to watch right after Christmas after Outlander ended I saw that Downton Abbey was available to stream on Amazon Prime and I got hooked from the very first episode. I love the period it entails, right around WW1 and after, the fatherRead More →
