In A Holding Pattern

This week, I am the red dot:

  1. My wife and I are still watching the first season of Money Heist, a Spanish series originally titled La Casa de Papel, on Netflix, and Mozart in the Jungle on Amazon Prime Video.
  2. I still am reading The Return of the King.
  3. We still are waiting for warmer weather, which with the start of Spring on the calendar is supposed to happen but here in northcentral Pennsylvania, we’re not holding our breath.

In the meantime, we did watch I, Tonya, which was surprisingly funny and the second movie with Oscar nominees and winners in it from this year’s Oscars that we have watched recently. The first was Three Billboards in Ebbing, MO, which also was darkly comical. The only caveat with I, Tonya is that it is good to check out other sources on the events of the movie, as the movie is biased towards Harding, although it doesn’t show her as a sympathetic character. The movie also doesn’t propose to tell the truth, but shows the story from a few points of view, including her husband at the time, Jeff Gillooly.

We also purchased BritBox as an Amazon channel and so far, we are enjoying reruns of Keeping Up Appearances and Black Adder. I also am enjoying watching A Touch of Frost. We did consider AcornTV, but since either we had seen what we wanted to there or a lot of the shows we wanted to see already were on Netflix, we decided that Britbox was the better option.

So how was your past week? Read anything good? Watch anything to recommend? Listen to anything mind-blowing?
