First up, The Paradise
I heard about it through a friend on Facebook,
she asked what people were thinking about it.
I looked it up and started Season 1
Only 8 episodes
I loved it.
I loved the innocence of it
I loved that it stayed innocent throughout it
It is about the nation's first ever department store, the people, and the employees.
You can see it on Netflix
This is Moray, the owner of The Paradise,
played by Emun Elliot.
Now you can stand to look at him for 8 episodes, can't you?
The only disappointing thing is that there was a season 2
but it has not been released to Netflix yet and the only way you can get it
is to order the DVD, and the DVD's are made for English DVD players.
So, I'm out of luck with being able to see the next season.
I guess it was not racy enough and it was not renewed for a 3rd season.
Well worth the 8 episodes though, I'm glad I watched them.
If you are a Downton Abbey fan, you will love this one.
If you are a man, you might not, as my husband wants me to clarify
to you that he did not watch this. (nor does he plan to)
Since my husband and I caught up with all the Person of Interest's on Netflix,
(waiting for the last season to be released)
we have been trying to find something worth our time to watch.
A couple months ago, we decided to give up TV. or Direct TV
in order to save 100 bucks per month.
So now we only do Netflix
EUReKa, we tried, but Tom did not care for it's quirky comic, yet serious style
(I'm currently in season 3 though, when there's nothing to watch,
I watch it)
I give it an "it's OK" rating.
This past weekend, we found this one!
We've watched a couple shows and both agree, it's really good
It's about this man, Lognmire, a Wyoming sheriff trying to go on
with his life after the death of his wife.
It's a crime/investigation type series.
Lou Diamond Philips is in it
I saw him on some Celebrity Food Network Star thing or something like that
and he was really really nice and down to earth.
I like the show for the country of it,
the cowboy hats, jeans and boots.
The scenery is amazing too.
Thumbs up so far.
Now, onto movies in the theaters right now!
Last week, on $5 Tuesday, I saw this with my oldest son
it was Awesome!
I only wished I'd watched the first one again to refresh my memory a little.
I really love the actor playing Spiderman in these, Andrew Garfield.
(way way better than the Tobie Maguire Spiderman)
And Jamie Foxx as a bad guy? I thought, "No way!"
But he pulled it off.
Now, today, $5 Tuesday,
I brought my oldest 2 daughters to this movie!
I heard and saw some terrible reviews of this movie,
reviews accusing this movie of things that are not true.
Accusing it of some kind of hidden agenda.
I can tell you first hand, there was no hidden agenda
It was an awesome movie!
I loved Angelina Jolie as Maleficent
I loved the redeeming qualities of her in this version of Sleeping Beauty.
I loved how they showed that there is good in us all, even Maleficent.
Things are not always as they seem.
If you are a fan of Once Upon a Time
you will love the "everyone wants a happy ending" in this movie.
Well, except maybe the King.
