City Homicide...

Here's another tv series on Amazon Prime to which I give high marks. It is Australian, and in my mind that gives it a plus. It is what I'd call a police procedural drama (with occasional humor...it is after all the Aussies) and the acting is top notch. Like "Darling Buds of May" it has a pretty young lady (Nadine Garner) but unlike Buds of May this one has action, some blood, death, all the things you expect with the police. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to you Jon, I spent a whole day watching all of "Darling Buds of May".
I also just finished watching "The Making of the Mob, Chicago". Another good series.

"The Darling Buds of May" started improving at the end of the 1st season, didn't you think, Don? Seemed that way to us. I thought that Christmas program at the end of the 1st season was just excellent. Made me look at Pop Larkin as Ebeneezer Scrooge in reverse.

Another one...and sorry but this will take a long time...is "McLeod's Daughters." Two half-sisters inherit a ranch in Australia and decide to run it. Aside from the fact this is an extremely well-written series, it does what I consider a really good job of showing "cowboy" life in Australia and when these ladies are working...there are no doubles. So if they get cut shearing sheep (and they do), they bleed. If they have to dig a hole, they get out there and dig it. And when they're on a horse, they're riding. Really makes US tv pale in comparison.

I'll watch for "The Making of the Mob." Thanks for mentioning it.

If you can deal with Scottish accents, "Shetland" and "Vera" are both good BBC programs.

I did the 23andme dna thing last fall. I'm 52% Scottish/Irish. 33% French/German.
All the rest is Northwestern European.
Also Tim, from NSW, and I traveled together for two weeks last year. Had a great time and hope to do a road trip with him again!
I do turn on the sub titles though, just to make sure I understand.

McLeod's Daughters is on my watch list now. With the movies and the easy ordering on line, Amazon Prime is making me happy.
It's even better than the Sear Catalog about 1900!
Just ordered a dog muzzle last night. Should be here Tuesday.

Don, are you sure the muzzle will fit you? You don't want it to chafe. yahoo

I have several replies for you! But yes, I ordered an extra large.
It may be a little tight, but I will make it work, on where it will be worn!
Put that in your noggin and think about it!

Sweet Dreams!

Be gentle boys I am a veteran and to be honored this weekend not vilified. The muzzle might slow me down but it would not stop me. Besides you need to be commiserating with me, I lost another Plymouth off of my list. My second choice. dang

Happy Valley is on Netflix. I worked in a large Sheriff’s department for 16 years. This show is mainly about women cops in a 1980s drug ridden small city in UK. They are the most realistic depiction of cops lives as I’ve seen.

Two thumbs up.
