In other news:
I finished watching Being Erica and absolutely loved the way it was wrapped up (there are 4 seasons). If you're unfamiliar with it, Being Erica is a Canadian series about a 30-something gal whose life is a mess. She goes into therapy and her therapist has the ability to send her back in time to relive her regrets. So much fun.
I'm still watching Chicago Fire. I'm close to the end of Season 3. I don't know if there are still quite so many episodes per season but I'm on episode 21 of Season 3. Wow, that's a lot of episodes. I think the current season is something like the 14th, so I have a long way to go.
We also watched Weekend at Bernie's, this weekend, after the whole Clarence Thomas thing ("Is he really alive or are they going to do a Weekend at Bernie's to keep the judicial slot?") and subsequent memes reminded us of what a fun movie it is.
And, that's it. I confess to otherwise spending a bit too much time doomscrolling the news about Ukraine. They're using white phosphorous, now? OMG. I wish I could understand why we can't do more to help (you know, apart from trying to prevent WWIII or a nuclear attack). I just read President Biden's Warsaw speech, a few hours ago, and was mightily impressed but I felt like, "OK, now do the unity thing back home." By all accounts I've read (I read many news sites, not only American), Biden has been the unifying force the world needs, at this moment. Nice to know.

I have Black Brother, Black Brother but haven't started it yet.ReplyDelete
Chicago Fire is on season 10. I've been watching all the Chicago shows since the beginning. I LOVE them!
The situation in Ukraine is so horrible. I can't even imagine :(
I thought Black Brother, Black Brother was excellent. I liked the way the darker-skinned brother -- who was bullied -- chose to learn something new and challenge himself to beat his bully at his own game. It's inspiring.Delete
Oh, only Season 10! Well, I still have a long way to go. I only watch Fire, but occasionally I've dipped into Med. I don't think I've watched the PD version, except when one show has folded into another with a shared storyline.
Yes, Ukraine is so depressing. I just read yesterday that 5,000 citizens have died in Mariupol and there aren't any buildings left at all that haven't been damaged. Hard to believe that Ukrainians were unfazed, a little over a month ago, not believing that they'd be attacked.
