Interesting TV programs?
« on: February 25, 2017, 05:09:31 PM »
I enjoy knitting with television on in the background. During the US football season I'm a very happy camper. But now I'm looking for recommendations for shows that are available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu. I like being able to watch more than one episode at a time while knitting on weekends.

I recently watched The Crown and am currently working my way through the first season of This Is Us. I love NCIS (the original only) and have seen all episodes multiple times. I stay away from horror and gore - the autopsy scenes in NCIS aren't very realistic so I can deal with them.

I'm open to movie recommendations in addition to TV series. I have only seen 3-5 movies at theaters in the past 13 or 14 years so I should think there would be some good ones I haven't seen.

Would anyone like to make some recommendations? Please and thank you!

I enjoyed The Crown as well.  There are several period programs out there now.  Two that I liked were: "Elizabeth" & "White Queen".   "Reign" is another one, but has a lot of drama & I didn't watch all of it.

Because of work schedule, I haven't been watching too much TV.  I've been watching youtube videos while I charge down before going to bed.  I've been watching lots of DIY crafts and thinking of birthdays and yes, Christmas presents. More in making them a bit more personal. Thinking about the person's personality, favorite color, etc. This gives me plenty to get the materials I need to suit the recipient.  :lol:

But, will check out the ones mentioned here when I my schedule is back to normal.
