Aren’t we all watching SO Much Television?!
The above picture is from a wonderful program. The first 3 seasons are called Midnight Diner and the next 2 seasons are called Midnight Diner – Tokyo Stories. The Tokyo Stories I think are the best maybe because they got into the swing of the format. You meet all the characters in the first set though. However you see them, each episode is a jewel you rotate in your hand, admiring every facet.
Here are some more shows I’ve enjoyed in the time of Covid. Of course I’ve seen many many more, and there are more that I would note but just can’t remember.
Rake; The Crown; Father Brown; Death in Paradise; High Fidelity (tv series); Perry Mason (the new one); Tin Star; Catastrophe; Mystery Road; Sanditon; Better Things; Barry; Pen15; Insecure; Chernobyl; Schitts Creek; Travels with My Father; Hap and Leonard; Russian Doll; The Good Place; Good Omens; Delhi Crime; Prime Suspect (w/Helen Mirren); I May Destroy You; Midnight Diner and Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories; Endeavour; Bosch; New Tricks; Boston Legal (I watched it for the third time); The Closer; Red Oaks; Fleabag; Wolf Hall; Justified; Rizzoli and Isles; Episodes; Jeopardy (reruns); The Mentalist; River; and So many more.
Now I’m watching another Japanese subtitled show called Giri/Haji that’s pretty good too.
Looking at this list I know I’ve seen a number of recommendable documentaries that are missing .. I’ll add them when they come to mind.
