As the cooler weather settles in and people are staying in more often than they might through the summer months, I thought I’d share with you a few shows I can easily recommend for nights spent in with a bowl of popcorn.
The first one was a recommendation I read on Facebook a few weeks ago and I watched every single episode in no time.
Ghosts, from BBC, is fantastic. Two thumbs up, five stars, all that. The characters are funny and charming and the premise is interesting enough. You’ll laugh a lot. You can stream Ghosts on HBOMAX.
Be warned that one of the ghosts died in a suit jacket, shirt, and tie, but no pants. So, his ghost is wearing only that. It makes me laugh every single time he has a scene.
Note, CBS has created an American version of this series and I haven’t watched it yet, so I can’t say whether or not it’s as enjoyable as the original. I don’t understand why we need an American version when we can just watch the original, but who knows. Maybe I will be surprised and enjoy it.
My next recommendation is (I think) two seasons in and can be streamed from Paramount+ (which is available through Prime if you choose). The actors are great and the set designs are really nice too. I love how each season takes place in a different time period and I absolutely loved the costumes. Also, the stories in each season are great. Fantastic writing.
Also, I should mention that the stories within season one and two are not related at all, but the outcomes of neither are predictable at all. Not everything is what it seems.
My last recommendation is probably not for everybody and comes from Netflix. Great British Baking Show releases new episodes every week and is a delightful distraction. Also, there is dessert. If you haven’t figured out by the title of the show, it’s a baking contest type show. There are judges (in the photo below) and at the end of the season there is a winner. Past winners often go on to do some great things in the world and one of them (Nadiya Hussain) even ended up with her own show on Netflix, which was delightful.
I should also mention that there is a Great American Baking Show, too, but I didn’t enjoy it at all and it never gained the popularity of GBBS. Probably because it was terrible.
