This one was a surprise – we watched Love & Friendship on October 3, 2016 and I at least liked it more then I thought I would.
Not as in, “he doesn’t like Jane Austen adaptations” but as in, “he loves Jane Austen adaptions” and thought this might not measure up.
We watched “Return 0” – the final of the series Person of Interest – on October 1, 2016.
Currer and I finished the last season, last episode of Castle on June 15, 2016.
We both enjoyed the show and I appreciated the characters throughout; there were some lows but overall fantastic.
On May 1, 2016 we watched “The Adventure of the Clapham Cook,” the first episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot as a family.
This wasn’t the first time we watched a Poirot with the kids, but it was for them.
One of the greatest Saturday morning cartoons known to man, Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears was introduced to my own children on March 30, 2016.
Spoiler: it still holds up.
On March 15 of 2016 Twitch began its non-stop streaming of all 201 episodes of Julia Child’s famous cook show, The French Chef.
While we didn’t watch all of them, it became a somewhat nightly ritual – something akin to comfort food where Currerbell and I would unwind and relax with a few episodes either watching outright or on in the background.
The comments in the stream were as ridiculous as you would expect, sometimes offensive but often hilarious.
It was a surprise treat to watch through the The French Chef marathon.
We started the final season of Downton Abby (series 6) on March 7, 2016.
She had seen several seasons before I jumped on board, but it was great to finished up the last couple together.
I remember being overall satisfied with the ending, the only thing wanting for more of a resolution for several of the characters.
There’s a lot going on in that title, but unfortunately I felt the piece itself didn’t do it justice.
On March 31, 2016 we finished Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.
On February 5, 2016 we watched the first episode of Star Trek the Original Series, “The Man Trap.”
It was worth it to see Captain Kirk “dodge” weapons fire.
If you’ve seen it then you know what I’m talking about.
If not, check it out and thank me later.
CurrerBell and I finished the first series of BBC’s Broadchurch on January 6, 2016.
Like so much we see from across the pond it was plodding, thoughtful, intense, sickening and a joy to watch all at the same time.
We have yet to see the second series yet as we just haven’t been able to muster the drive for it yet; we know once we start it we’re going to be in for a dramatic and exhausting ride.
