I love Amazon Prime and Netflix more that the average person. Google Play is also available but I haven't accessed that yet . Those computer streaming instant video options have opened a world to me that I had not seen before. I can watch BBC and foreign films that are wonderful. Who knew that the rest of the world might be far more talented and creative that the film industry in the United States. The quality of most of things I watch is outstanding. The very fact that the BBC series Vera sells for almost $8.00 an episode on Amazon and $4.99 on Google Play says a lot for it's popularity. Doc Martin can be had for $1.99 but PBS is showing it too.
I suppose those of us that live in the United States only have one hope and that is that the foreign TV industry will keep cranking good shows out.
My 10 favorites on NetFlix or Amazon Prime:
- Wallander (BBC and foreign film)
- Vera (if still available)
- Doc Martin
- Spiral (French)
- Sherlock (BBC)
- Call the Midwife
- Inspector Lewis
- Foyles War
I also loved the movie The Untouchables, a French comedy about a paraplegic and his ex-con caregiver. Any movie that makes me laugh needs to be recommended. There is not enough laughter these day.
I need some good (smart) viewing and would love for you to share what you are watching.
