Las Vegas is one of the entertainment capitals of the world. But this week a lot of productions went dark as we all stay safe from the coronavirus. We will be back with FREE fun when it’s safe to get out there again.
So it’s time to learn how to hygge, which is Danish for like staying at home and getting cozy comfortable. I am going to share some of my favorite TV shows that I am going to watch since I’m not leaving the house for much of anything.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon Prime)
It’s the late 1950s. Midge Maisel, who seemingly has it all (according to 1950s norms) suddenly turns single when her husband leaves her for his secretary. (Also so 1950s.) Turns out she has a talent for stand-up comedy.
The clothes! The mores! The comedy! I love the amazing recreation of that period in time.
I’ve only seen Season 1, so I have plenty of watchin’ to do.
The Crown (Netflix)
I binge-watched all three seasons. I love this show!
It delves into the life of Queen Elizabeth II, decade by decade. The first two seasons had one cast: Claire Foy was ah-mah-zing as HRH. Then Olivia Colman took over in season 3. OMG. She is just as good.
What I loved about the series is each episode has a learning lesson for one member of the royal family. I learned a lot of history. And am sooo glad I am not part of this family!
Schitt’s Creek (Netflix)
Imagine Kim and Kayne showing up in a small town in South Dakota with their kids after they lost ALL their money. This show is a hilarious send-up of the uber wealthy.
The Schitt family lost their entire fortune (they were part of the one percent) when their money manager didn’t pay the IRS. They were forced to move to a small, fly-over town in Canada, which they own and are now trying to sell. They have to adjust to a radical new way of rural living.
The mom Moira, played by Catherine O’Hara, steals the show. But anything by co-written Eugene Levy is hysterical. Didn’t you love the movie Best in Show?
The best part: the episodes are only 30 minutes long.
This is the final season, so I have a lot to catch up.
Hawaii Five-0 (CBS)
There are only two more episodes in a 10-year career.
I really looked into moving to Hawaii after watching this show. That was until I investigated the real estate prices and changed my mind tout suite!
What I love about this show are the gorgeous shots of one of America’s most beautiful states. The stories are good, too, but the visuals are what got me hooked.
I liked the original cast better than the current one, so I’m going to watch the early seasons.
Stay safe and healthy, Las Vegas.
