Last week, I started London Hospital–and for the record, I’m hooked.  Thanks to readers Janet and Linda, now I have a new series to add to the list.  This Friday, I am going to start Foyle’s War.  It’s about a detective who investigates wartime crimes in England {War time being WWII}.  It gets a solid 5 stars on Amazon, combines drama with historical accuracy, and is set in a small coastal town in England.  I’m pretty sure it has Mavis written all over it.  {Thanks again for the suggestion!}

Friday Night at the Movies – London Hospital

I apparently must watch a lot of BBC shows, because in my search for a movie this week, London Hospital popped up as a suggestion.  I don’t know how I hadn’t found it until now–it totally looks like a show I’m gonna love.  Like Call the Midwife, it is set in East London in the early 1900′s.

It follows the lives of the nurses, doctors, and patients, kind of like a Grey’s Anatomy, only with a lot more substance.  And, true to form, the BBC has tried to get most of their stories from the journals of the nurses and doctors.  I can’t wait to dive into this series.

Friday Night at the Movies – Chaplin

Tonight I am going to watch Chaplin.  It’s about the life of Charlie Chaplin–both on and off the screen. It got great reviews on Amazon–and I don’t really know that much about him, other than he was a Hollywood legend.  This is one of those movies I just kind of stumbled onto, and I’m really looking forward to watching it.  {It doesn’t hurt that I love Robert Downey Jr. }

Tonight The Girl and I are back on the documentary train.  We will be watching The Greenhorns.  It’s a film about the new generation of people who are committed to bringing sustainable agriculture back.  I think it’s going to be one of those garden affirming sorts of movies, and who doesn’t love that?

New Chipotle Ad Takes a Poke at Food Standards in America

Have you all seen the new Chipotle ad?  It is dark and disturbingly telling.  It exaggerates {kind of} the state of our food system and how removed we’ve become from our food–and HOW we get it.

Whenever ads start to reflect a grass roots trend, I always take notice, because it seems like it’s an indication that the mainstream on a whole is starting to change their mindset.

Watch it, tell me what you think.  Do you think the message of whole, responsibly produced foods is finally taking off?

Friday Night at the Movies – How It’s Made

Okay, so I know this is not exactly a movie, but How It’s Made is a ridiculously educational series from the Science Channel and you can get it free on Netflix or with Amazon Prime.  Each episode literally shows you how common things you’ve probably never even thought of before are made.  I know it doesn’t take much, but this show seriously blows my mind, and since we have people coming into town this weekend, The Girl and I can’t commit to an entire movie.

Do you watch this series too? Do you have a favorite episode?

Friday Night at the Movies – 13 Going On 30

The Girl and I have enjoyed taking a little break from the documentaries lately in exchange for something a little more light-hearted.  So, tonight, we are watching 13 Going on 30.  If you haven’t seen it, I know it seems cheesy, but I recommend it.  It is such a cute show about a 13 year old girl who makes a wish on her 13th birthday to be grown up {kind of like the movie Big with Tom Hanks, only this one is for the ladies} and of course, gets her wish.  It’s a  really endearing movie about the awkward and funny aspects of growing up.

Friday Night at the Movies – The Breakfast Club

After The Girl and I watched Pretty in Pink last week, I casually mentioned that the movie was part of a whole group of “brat pack” movies from the 80′s.  The Girl asked me, “What’s the brat pack?”.  I stopped dead in my tracks.  Am I that old?  Have I failed my own child that I have never mentioned the brat pack before?  Could The Girl rat her hair if her life depended on it?

I really questioned all of the important stuff in life on this one people.  That’s why this Friday, we will once again be revisiting an iconic 80′s brat pack film.  It’s my duty as a mother to give The Girl culture, I take it very seriously.  That’s why we are going to watch The Breakfast Club.

Do you remember this one?  How long has it been since you watched it?  More importantly, which character did you identify with?  {Very deep question, I know, take your time.  Ha!}

Call the Midwife

Okay, so I know it’s totally not Friday, but have you seen Call the Midwife? While I was recovering from dental surgery I finished the first 2 seasons.  They. Were. Awesome.  Like, Downton Abbey awesome.  The first season is FREE if you have Amazon Prime, and I dare you not to be willing to pay for the second season once you have seen it!
It’s about midwives in East London in the 1960′s.  East London was notoriously poor, women had no access to birth control, lived in pretty meager conditions, etc.  The show follows these women as they give birth–all through the eyes of the midwives who help them.

Let me tell you, Bob, the British have done it again.  It is totally worth sitting down to watch if you haven’t already.

Season 3 won’t come out until some time in 2014, so you have plenty of time to catch up.

Let me know what you think,

Mavis

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Pretty in Pink.  I was browsing through the Amazon Instant selections and saw it there.  It’s such an 80′s classic, and I haven’t seen it in years.  Maybe I’ll put on some pink lip gloss and play some Cindy Lauper while I assemble our movie night junk food–just for old times sake.  I hope The Girl can appreciate it!
