What I am watching I’ve always wanted to watch “Le Miserables”, but that whole musical adaptation thing… I just could not watch it. I tried, trust me, but I could not do it. I guess because I grew up with musicals being ‘happy and fun’ stories, a musical of a sad tale… it just doesn’t work for me. So… when I heard of this new adaptation that was not a musical… YES! I taped it when it aired on PBS while I was stuck at the hospital with Nicky back in June and I finally watched it a couple of months ago and… I LOVED IT!!!! OMG. Lily Collins kills it. Five Stars!! I heard about Black Mirror on Netflix so much that when I was stuck in the hospital with Nicky I decided to give it a GO. All I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Each episode isRead More →

What I am watching Let’s face it. There aren’t many historical shows that take place in my beloved Italy, so when I heard about the “MEDICI” on Netflix, I was all over it. Season 1 had the further intrigue of starring Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden. Season 2 jumps a couple of generations. While season 1 told the story of Cosimo de Medici (Madden), season 2 revolves around his grandson, the famous Lorenzo il Magnifico, played handsomely by Daniel Sharman. I truly enjoyed the show, and to learn history this way has always been my favorite mode. I’ve often said that the way they teach history in school is the most boring way ever, and now what happened in the Duomo in the season finale, will forever be etched in my soul. It was filmed in the same place where it happened 500 years ago. How cool is that? FiveRead More →

What I am watching I truly love the saga of Ross Poldark, now in its 4th season on PBS (Masterpiece). Aiden Turner in the lead role is quite the eye candy to boot! The show takes the story from a series of 12 books written by Winston Graham. Set in Cornwall, England, at the end of the 18th century, this show has it all. Romance, Betrayal, Jealousy, Wars, Intrigue, Politics… and the center of it all is our dashing hero. He’s the kind of man who knows good from evil, the kind of man who will always try to do the right thing. By his side is beautiful and fiery wife Demelza, whose big heart complements Ross’ quite well. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. It is my mom’s favorite show of all time! All 4 seasons are now available on Amazon Prime! Also on PBS Masterpiece,Read More →
