If I were incapacitated to the point that I could neither read nor write, I think I’d spend my time petting the dog and watching Netflix. We got Netflix a year or so ago, and we just love it. I have a list of favorite shows that I watch so here are some suggestions for you.
This series is set in a traditional English village. The hero is a police inspector who is usually dealing with multiple murders. Apparently nobody in England can kill just one person. There are usually three victims. The series approaches the subject much differently than an American series of the same genre. There are very few if any graphic scenes, and our hero Inspector Barnaby doesn’t carry a gun so he never kills anyone.
Death in Paradise
Set in the Caribbean, a bumbling but brilliant English inspector works with his local office to solve thorny murders. There’s usually a spark between the inspector and one of his officers, but of course they’re denying their feelings
The Great British Baking Show
The Great British Baking Show is a competition between skilled amateur bakers. The judges (Paul Hollywood is gorgeous.) set three tasks for the bakers, and at the end of the show they reward one with the title of star baker. The one who does the worst must leave the competition.
Hart of Dixie
This show is another favorite of mine. It came on TV a few years ago, but I didn’t watch it then. Imagine a New York doctor who ends up practicing in a small Southern town where her ways are not really understood by the local people. One of the most interesting aspects of the show is the doctor’s romantic relationships. So far I can’t say she’s lucky in love, but I haven’t finished watching the series yet.
Call the Midwife
When this show was announced I never thought to watch it. Who wants to watch midwives delivering babies? Well, the show is that plus a whole lot more. I watch the nurses and revel not only in their cases but also in their personal triumphs and failures. Do yourself a favor and take a look at it.
What about all of you? What TV shows do you enjoy watching?
