With stay at home orders still in effect here in my home state as well as around the world, here are a few more television shows to keep you occupied when the cleaning, cooking, news watching and zoom meetings are done:
The Worlds Most Extraordiary Homes (Netflix & BBC)
Architect Piers Taylor and actress Caroline Quentin travel the world to find, really, the worlds most extraordinary homes! Not only do they visit but they spend the night allowing for a truly intimate experience. With a balance of architectural know-how (Piers) and gut reaction to the spaces (Caroline) the show provides a wonderful point of view suited to anybody interested in good idea based architecture. You will see all types of homes from tiny, to luxury to absurd. But mostly it is intimate access to spaces one would never even know existed let alone get a peek inside of.
The AO (Netflix)
This strange yet intriguing tale of near death experience exploration is really good TV. If you are anything like me you’ll wonder whose mind can conjure up such an extraordinary and bizarre story line. And it’s brought to life by amazing actors that keep you enthralled from start to finish. It’s perfectly set up for a next season so here’s hoping . . .
Season 1 was fantastic. Season 2 was OK. Season 3 just launched so here’s hoping it better. Word on the street is good. But at any rate, watching Jason Bateman play opposite Laura Linney is worth it regardless.
Salt Fat Acid Heat (Netflix)
Another cooking show . . . But following chef Samin Norsat around the world eating, cooking and celebrating the basic elements of food that make it taste so wonderful — is more like taking a glorious trip with your new best friend. Go for the journey. It’s well worth it!
The Morning Show (Apple TV)
I didn’t expect to like this so much. But it is an extremely topical program that strikes an amazing resemblance to recent events at NBC News amidst the Me Too movement. I hate to say that Jennifer Aniston and her Juvaderm face is a bit hard to take at times but acts as further unspoken comment on being a women in entertainment and what it takes to stay relevant into your 50s.
