I finished Crossing Lines. It had the worst bridge ever between season 2 and 3; season 2 ended with one character being involved with something potentially very dangerous, and the season ended with another character entering her hotel room, seeing her in her bed and sinking down into a chair. Which might have meant he found her dead- or found her sleeping and was so relieved he had to sit down.

And then season 3 started and all but three characters were gone. They were addressed in passing as “gone home to their countries”, with absolutely no mention of what happened to this character. Presumably, she survived, but what about the cliffhanger? Which was something season 2 had built toward the whole season. Absolutely nothing was said about that. Very annoying! BUT. Season three was was actually the best season with much better plots. Goran Visnjic was stellar, and I enjoyed the other actors as well. It is rather surprising it was canceled after this season.

Husband got me into watching Riverdale. I read Archie as a child and never cared much for it, so the show didn’t appeal. Well, it’s a very different animal. I like it; it’s rather like Twin Peaks, but I wish I could have seen it when I was a teenager. I think I would have loved it passionately then. And I’m sure I would have developed a huge crush on Jughead Jones.

I’ve just started to watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I love it! It’s very funny and Midge is such a likable character- though I don’t think she should have been a parent- she seems very interested in her children. And it’s gorgeous! I crave her wardrobe too! I love the colour combinations!











I also look forward to Good Omens, American Gods, The Handmaid’s Tale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

I LOVE the costumes in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"! I want all of Midge's super-casual clothes to become my new work wardrobe.

I agree, she really doesn't seem like a very involved parent to her two children. It almost feels like they were thrown in because a nice Jewish housewife in the late 50s/early 60s should have a couple of small children, but they're essentially just non-characters.
