During the television dry spell of summer and with all my travel, I found some new (to me) series to watch the past few months. In case you’re looking for something to watch below are four favorite streaming shows.
Also, everyone knows you can download shows onto your device (laptop, phone, tablet), right?
Three titles of my five summer favorite streaming shows were on Amazon Prime detailed below in alphabetical order.
Good Omens, is based on the book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman titled Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, and is an Amazon original series. I loved the witty, interesting story and the acting by Michael Sheen and David Tennant was incredible. (You’ll see the latter has another show on my list.)
Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence
This miniseries came out 60 years after the book of the same title, Ordeal by Innocence, was first published but seems modern in this rendition.
I didn’t read the book and I didn’t know who-dun-it until the end. If you like a good mystery, then this is a show for you.
Spirited is an Australian show that had two seasons (2010-2011). The story is about a dentist who moves into a condo inhabited by a 80’s rock star ghost. I couldn’t stop thinking about them once I viewed the last episode wondering what becomes of this ill-fated couple.
My only complaint was there should have been a third season to wrap things up nicely.
Netflix is the other streaming service I subscribe to and I found a couple of new to me shows to watch.
At first I was reluctant to watch a show about a child murder but after seeing David Tennant in Good Omens, I wanted to to watch more of his acting; he plays a British detective inspector in Broadchurch. A bonus was being introduced to actor Olivia Colman who is fantastic as his sergeant.
There are three seasons and the police team move beyond the original murder in the last one with another compelling case.
After the heaviness of Broadchurch, I was ready for a comedy and Workin’ Moms fits that bill. This Canadian production has three seasons as well but instead of a murder, we’re following members of a baby/mommy class through their lives.
All of the characters have foibles and we see them deal with the results of their mistakes and well as celebrate the good things. I’m looking forward to season 4 of these wacky women and their families.
