    Hi xiangxiang, thanks for the suggestions! :smile: I'm now remembering you mentioned Spiral in the past, and must look up the others, too! I think you have cable (or equivalent) and we don't, so seems we sometimes have different options. Of the ones I mentioned, I love The Durrells the most. We just watched the second episode of Jeeves and Wooster last night, hmm...was a bit dumb! But will give it a few more tries, love the jazz age, theme music, graphics and costumes. We started watching the 1966 surfer movie last night, too, called Endless Summer...so dated, and a bit dorky, but that's part of what makes it fun! :biggrin:

    Sounds good! We like so much of the British programming, we tend to seek it out. Sorry you've finished it, xiangxiang, hate when we've run through all episodes of something we love! :console: you know I look for opportunities to use this adorable emoji, love the hair tousling!

  3. We have Sky here so they have a TV box-set library. They put programmes in the library regularly and we download them. Some of them are on live TV and we record them to our box and watch them in one go or later. I will let you know if I find any of those shows you mentioned.

  4. You know I didn't even remember this emoji! It's so cute!
    We spent some quality time with Harry over Christmas. He just loves the beach and the sea. He ran into the sea no problems and I was a bit scared of that though so I always called him back when I thought he might have gone a bit too far in. In-laws previous retriever was very scared of water the first time when they took him to the seaside so he was never brought to the seaside again.

  5. Ok. Of all the shows you mentioned, I can only get Father Brown. It's been 6 seasons and I am surprised we never watched it. Just downloaded 1st episode of the season 6 for a trial viewing.
    Some episodes of Victoria are available but not all and not in sequence. Weird!

    We get programs via Netflix and iTunes, and have access to Amazon Prime, but rarely use that. Too bad you could only find Father Brown, and the odd assortment of Victoria! Regarding Father Brown, he's a bit of a mysterious sleuth. We're part way into season 3, and have been told very little of his history. He's a bit quirky, but doesn't seem to have the angst and/or baggage so many of the fictional sleuths often have. At first it bugged me a bit, knowing so little about him, but he's grown on me now. It's very light mystery, all very neat and tidy!

  9. I know, the console emoji is just so darling! :hbeat:

    Regarding Harry, what a lucky boy! And so fun to have had quality time with your angel. Our golden Molly loved the ocean, too. Like you, it scared me when she was out a bit! Our surf can be pretty rough, and I worried she'd be pulled out too far! So being a worry-wart Mum :oh:, I'd only let her have so much fun, before we'd call her in. She absolutely loved digging in the sand, too! :smile:

  10. Madam B, I'd not heard of it, thanks so much for mentioning it. I just read a bit about it, and it does sound really intriguing.

    Lucky you, now you have season 2 to watch, as well! :smile:
     
  11. Yes, Madam B, am watching "The Good Doctor"....casting is good and cases are interesting. Season One is on Hulu for those that might want to catch up.

  12. MB, we downloaded the pilot of the show and watched it a few week back. Unfortunately my SO was not very keen. We find the concept is indeed very interesting but SO is squeamish with medical details. What can I say? I am a braver man than him! Lol!

  14. Hi cilantro, we hadn't watched Arrested Development in years, and recently started the series again from the beginning. It's just so silly, and funny! :biggrin: After watching the first few, I thought maybe our tastes had changed, and then remembered it took a few more episodes to get up to snuff. Still so funny years later!

    The others comedies we've recently enjoyed are The Good Place, and Episodes. Love all the characters in The Good Place, and Episodes is such a funny spoof on Hollywood!
     
  15. Hello etoile!
    I know right. It’s only when we start re-watching again and only then we will remember how much we loved it and still love it. Such an oldie but goodie. Yes, The Good Place and Episodes are so funny! :P
