    I would definitely recommend Lucifer for those looking for some comedy with detective work. I've been binging it this past week and its great!

    I highly recommend What We Did On Our Holiday (Amazon Prime) if you want something sweet, light, and funny! Starts out a little slow the first 10 minutes or so - just stick with it. The kids are hilarious! I will admit to watching it more than once (saw it on a plane the first time). My husband will even sit down and watch it with me and he typically gets bored easily with movies.

    I watched this! In fact I watched it twice because I dozed off and missed a couple things the first time.

    I have Prime, no Netflix but I have Apple TV and Popcorn, and Crackle. I watch Prime most of the time. I just heard about Peacock and I hear it is a good, FREE, app to download lots of stations and movies, and TV. I paid to get Yellowstone, all 3 seasons. I heard that it was free on Peacock, so I will let you know if it is any good. Yellowstone was good, kept me entertained for a few weeks. I also watched the Affair, it was good too, but I have to pay for season 3.

    On Prime, I wanted an interesting documentary called Gloriavale. There are 3 episodes available free on Prime.

    I watched Kim’s Convenience on Netflix. Four seasons available and a fifth should be available soon.

    So finished "The Wilds" - It was very dark, good but dark. I tried to explain to some of the people in my office, it was very Lord of the Flies like, but they looked at me like I had three heads and I can't even say they are young :(, definitely old enough that they should get the reference. I am so thankful I had an English teacher that made us read the classics. Do they even have required reading in school anymore?

    I did not like The Midnight Sky. Was disappointed.
    Better off to watch George in his older flick” Gravity”.
    I think some of Clooney’s best acting was in “The Descendants” .
    Also he was great in “Up In the Air”.

    MOO

    Just finished binging Bridgerton on Netflix. It is a drama from Shonda Rhimes (Greys Anatomy, Scandal ) that centers around the Bridgerton family in Regency England. I am sure it is historically inaccurate but is escapist, bodice-ripping fun. Do not watch it with your kids!

    I just binged "Murder on Middle Beach". I don't know if it's just the timing or what... but it's the best true crime with heart documentary I've seen in quite awhile. Once I dabbed my weepy eyes and sniffly nose (it brought a few tears)... I had to come back and thank you for this recommendation :)
