Ok I have to fess up that I was flipping around and landed on 90 Day Fiance - Before the 90 Days. What in the heck? I couldn't look away or change the channel, it was like a train wreck or car accident. Is this what happened to housewives during all the years of soap operas? I cannot go down the rabbit hole of un-reality TV. It seems like there are tons of these shows on all those weird channels I never looked at.

Kingdom on Netflix. It's a Korean zombie series set in the late Goryeo period to the early Joseon period. Great geo political stories!

I never heard of "90 day Fiance" (will look it up later as you have piqued my curiosity) but I did go down the rabbit hole of "Love is Blind" and well all I can say is under "normal" circumstances I don't think I would have watched it. LOL Some of it was entertaining but much of it was not.

"Little Fires Everywhere" streaming on Hulu. We don't have Hulu but it looks like a great show. Maybe time to get Hulu.

Just finished binge watching Gilmore Girls which was funny and a bit quirky. Also, may watch Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries again- loved that series!

Gilmore girls is one of my favorite series. Love it. Maybe time to rewatch it again. Thanks for the reminder.

If you're up for a Chinese period drama, Story of Yanxi Palace on Amazon Prime is so binge worthy! It's historical fiction based on mainly real people, and so much more factually-plausible than Ruyi's Royal Love in the Palace.

We are watching "Handmaid's Tale". Not exactly uplifting lol (we read the book a long time ago but I do not remember anything about it) but I am enjoying it nonetheless.

I binged "Unorthodox" today on Netflix. I really liked it. It is mostly in Yiddish, which was very unusual. Based partly on a true story. Afterward, there's a "The Making of Unorthodox", explaining more about the particular community.

Some courses aren't cheap some are, we love this site and use it not even in a pandemic :)

We are watching it. I like it because I grew up in the area it is filmed in that time period but none of the characters are very likable.

I was late to this but "The Leftovers" on HBO was AMAZING.

The only show I have watched an entire season of in the last five years was the first two seasons of Alone, and I thoroughly recommend it.

For the first two seasons they took ten people with varying experience in wilderness survival and woodsman life, let them choose ten survival items and left them isolated in different parts of an island in British Columbia. They had to document their time out there and had a rescue button, last man standing wins half a million dollars.

The third season they took on an approach with teams, which killed the whole 'Alone' idea for me.
There's actually 6 seasons of actual "Alone"! "Alone: The beast" is the team one. They moved away from vancouver island (I think it was getting too easy), and also did a season in Northern canada, Patagonia and Mongolia.

I've binged almost the entire season of Ozark s3. Also 100 humans. Friends is thrown in every now and then.
