Hey Sprinklerz! I hope you are ready for a tangent filled ride of great recommendations!!! My friend Cicely sits in the co-host chair as we talk about one of our all time favorites shows; BLEAK HOUSE (Amazon Prime/Hulu) Which is a stunning 2005, eight part miniseries rendition of the Charles Dickens's novel of the same name. It is chock full of an amazing cast of characters played by a cadre of incredible actors/actresses (Including: Gillian Anderson, Carey Mulligan, Anna Maxwell, Charles Dance, Burn Gorman, Pauline Collins, Nathaniel Parker and on and on and on!) Intricate storylines with unpredictable plot twists will leave you breathless.
Then we try to convince you to watch the Netflix original, THE O.A. It is such a creative and original show but due to unique and at times complicated characters you may have a hard time getting into it but once you do you will love it! It's wonderfully mysterious and it will have you guessing the whole way through. Definitely unlike any other show anywhere.
And finally Cicely shares her tasty-treat-sensation which is Hershey's Cookie Layer Crunch Mint. It was so good she eat it on her way over and just brought the wrapper to remind her of the name, hahahahaha (Sad but true.)
In today's episode we could not help ourselves and end up talking about another three shows:
Inspector Lynley Mysteries (TV Series, 2001-2008): Based on the books by Elizabeth George,. This Murder Mystery series staring Nathaniel Parker and Sharon Small is sadly not currently on any streaming service.
Pacific Rim. (2013 Movie) Monsters vs Robots fun! This lighthearted monster flick is not to be missed by those looking for a high-octane monster smashing adventure! Unfortunately it is not on any streaming service, but plays often on cable TV.
Ladies in Lavender (2005, Movie) Staring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith set in the 1930s, Dench and Smith play sisters who rescue a Polish Violinist who washes ashore and ends up changing their mundane lives. Enchanting and endearing. Not in streaming source but can be rented or bought on Amazon.
