What We’re Watching — New Tricks

Just added another BritBox British crime drama called New Tricks to our watch list. We just finished the first episode. The dynamics between the characters is really enjoyable. So far, recommended...
Taggart

What We Are Watching — Taggart

My wife usually doesn't like to watch older shows except for the Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, and Friends. The other night she picked the Scottish crime drama, Taggart, which debuted in 1983.
McDonald & Dodds

McDonald & Dodds Watch List Recommended

British detective dramas seem to be our choice to escape all the angst and silliness that seems to dominate American television today. Our latest find is McDonald and Dodds on Britbox. It features an "odd couple" pairing as leads.

Watching Shakespeare & Hathaway

Well, actually getting ready to watch Season 3 of Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators which is supposed to come to BritBox in early October.

Watching Miss Tootsie

Just started watching Chefs Table BBQ on Netflix. Besides reminding me how much I miss Texas, the first episode is a real profile in courage.
Prime Japan Series

Watching: Prime Japan

Wife and I just started watching in Amazon Prime streaming. First episode on sushi had us both hungry.

Watching: The Witcher

Latest show wife, son and I are watching together. Production is slick and storyline, character development pretty interesting.
