What we are watching

The Three Penny Opera, 1931, sung in German.
Striking how wooden the acting was, even the famous Lotte Lenya!

The 2020 Great British Baking Show, new episode each Friday, pretty much like all the rest.

Endeavor: still more cases of Inspector Morse. We have been watching
the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Very entertaining!

And reading...

Arkady Renko the Moscow detective
must be in his seventies by now but
Martin Cruz Smith keeps him going.
A disappointing sequel.

Nothing much exciting in all this, though we are enjoying these rather varied choices. Luckily there are still many days with beautiful weather!

I like the Great British Baking Show. Paul Hollywood's eyes are so blue! Happy T Day.

I enjoyed Inspector Morse too...esp. the young one.

I am a Great British Baking Show fan also!

Three Penny Opera is one of my all time favorites. The stiff acting is, I think, a stylistic choice rather than a flaw. Or an artifcact of the way it was filmed and the use of stage actors.

Do you read books to the end if you are not enjoying them?

Threepenny has never been a favorite of mine. I know it's a classic and I try to like it but it just doesn't grab me. I'm looking forward to PBS's recorded live on video theatre festival in November. It's always a favorite!

We've been watching the baking show too. I am really not at all fond of "Matt," the comedian. But then, my favorites were Mel and Sue anyway. Love that show! (And Endeavour.)

I like all 3 of the Morse-related series and was happy with how they handled Endeavor.
