Like me, you might be stuck at home on #Coronaviruslockdown and I’m sick and tired of the nightly news. Current events! Politics!
The 24-hour news shows are doing their best to make me depressed enough to go on a full-time diet of Blue Bell Cookies & Creme ice cream (a yummy, totally additive combination of vanilla ice cream and crushed Oreo cookies).
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Amy Sherman-Pallidino, the creator of The Gilmore Girls brings us another Emmy Award-winning hit series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Golden Globe winner, Rachel Brosnahan stars as the vivacious, funny and marvelous Miriam (Midge) Weissman-Maisel. Midge is the perfect 1950’s housewife. Midge and her no-good, cheating husband, Joel have two lovely children and live in a gorgeous Upper West Side high-rise apartment in New York City. What else could a woman want? How about a career as a stand-up comedian?
Catch up with Season 1 & 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime before Season 3 begins.
Yes. I love romantic comedies and love stories, but, you know how much I also love action movies and sci-fi. John Krasinski from The Office and A Quiet Place stars in Jack Ryan. The series follows the action-packed adventures of Tom Clancy’s popular character as a young CIA analyst, before The Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games. Watch Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Season 1 and 2

With movie theaters in many states in the U.S. and around the world closed due to bans on public gatherings, several new releases, like Mulan, In the Heights, and Wonder Woman 1984 have been postponed until later in the year. Other movies that had a short release in theaters, such as Birds of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, Onward, The Invisible Man, and Emma are available on demand.
I Love U.K. TV!
I don’t know how they do it, but the Brits have the best television shows. These are a few UKTV shows you might enjoy:
Victoria (Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes)
Vanity Fair (Olivia Cooke and Tom Bateman)
Being Human (Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey, and Lenora Critchlow)
Season 5, the final season of the Masterpiece Theater/BBC historical drama Poldark will air on PBS later in 2019 or early 2020. That gives you plenty of time to catch up with Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) and his Cornwall adventures.
Watch all 5 Seasons of Poldark on Amazon Prime Video or on PBS.
