    "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" is my go to right now. The show plays in Australia in the 20ies, takes up a lot of social issues, has strong characters, and little actual violence.

      Falena that sounds interesting, maybe on my Thanksgiving break I'll have to look that one up and see if I can find it.

      I don't really sit down and watch much tv right now, but I do try and watch a movie with my son once a week or he'll really want me to watch a show with him. I was recently reminded how sweet the How to Tame Your Dragon trilogy is, we watched the 2nd one last week. I also enjoyed one called Mako Mermaids, it's a whole series about this girl that discovers she's a mermaid.

      Oh, and Anne with an "E", based on Anne of Green Gables. Might have binge watched that at the beginning of quarantine.

      On the adult front, I've really enjoyed a BBC show named "Call the Midwife" it's based in the east end of London, I believe in the end of the 1950's going into the early 1960's. It revolves around the nuns of nonnatus house and the nurses that live with them, primarily the show focuses on the midwifery but there is a lot more to it.

      I also really enjoyed Madame Secretary, She's such a strong female character, smart, courageous, real.

      That's probably everything good I've watch this past year (or more) lol.

          Moonflower I can remember sitting with my son when he was young, watching TV. I think we had “bonding time” (as I thought of it in my own mind but not said to him) watching shows about animals. There was a show, the name of which now escapes me, about rescue animals.
          Thank you for reminding me of this. It is a good memory of him (as he is now grown up) sitting together.
          As for me, I’m still hooked on Bargain Hunt. If only I lived in the UK I’d apply to go on it! I’ve been watching it nightly for so long I can predict now what many items are worth before the expert gives an opinion!

              I am watching “Mum” from BBCTV. It is the story of a newly widowed woman but not depressing. It is light hearted and shows her gentle sensitivity and how it helps other characters in the show.

                I binge watched season 2 of Virgin River within 3 days of it being released in Australia.

                Oh and if course this time if the year, it's all about Christmas movie. For me, there's nothing like a light hearted movie that often has a little romance thrown in.

                I enjoy most of the Hallmark produced movies and series

                  Virgin River is fabulous! although it gets a bit triggering at times. I also just discovered The Mandalorian which for a star wars/scifi fan is just fantastic.

                  Do any of you watch The Resident? I wonder if the US medicine business is really that dark?

                    I just finished virgin river... glossing over some of the triggering moments I’m hooked. But darn what a cliffhanger ending.

                    im not current on the resident but have watched it and yes I’m quite sure it’s that dark. I’m sure some embellishments have been made for drama sake, but the premise is true and big pharma a etc. rule

                      I've never seen Virgin River, though it sounds familiar is it on Netflix?

                      I've heard of The Resident, but haven't watched that one either maybe I'll see if I can find it out of curiosity sake.

                      I have started watching Grey's Anatomy, it took me a while to get into, the amount of people hooking up and sleeping around was a bit off putting at first. There is never anything graphic of that nature, but it primarily takes place in a level 1 trauma center so there is a lot of dramatic gore. It's kind of my put on in the background while I'm doing other things show.

                        I have to say if you watch greys anatomy you’ll have a hard time getting over who the main man in virgin river is as he is from greys lol... if you’re anything like me in which the first thing I watch an actor in that’s who they are to me and I have a tough time changing

                          Overcome, one of the funny things I've noticed about Grey's is the amount of actors that pass through as patients in the early seasons that I recognize as characters in other shows. It's interesting it's really just been the past few years that I guess I finally passed the threshold of watching tv and movies where I've started recognizing people more than the handful I know that I like.
