June - I did watch Bridgerton but the sex scenes did not add to the story in any way and while the guy was handsome I did not need to see his butt so often and for me it took away from the story. It did give me, my sisters and my cousin a topic to talk about - which is also why we all watch ThisIsUs (not kid friendly either)  I feel like those shows - if your fam/friends are watching - make it a video book club and something to talk about.

Everyone Loves Raymond is a show that always makes me laugh.  Is it because they're New York Long Island Italians like I am? Maybe.  But some of the lines on that show are just so funny !  

We definitely need a new series to watch over here - I am not subscribing to 47 new streaming services to see all the stuff that's out.  I have Cable and Netflix so if it's not on one of those I'm not that interested.  Although I did pay for the Disney channel for 2 months to watch Hamilton.   That was worth it - if you have't seen it - it's entertaining history with some songs that will not go out of your head.

june -- aurora teagarden for the win!!!! I loved all those hallmark shows -- I'll re- up my subscription one of these days --

yes doc martin is a tough pill to swallow -- when I saw an episode about making the show and found out I real life he is exactly opposite the character he plays and he really lives dogs it made it easier to watch -- but yeah he's pretty crusty

Theresa I really enjoy some of the older shows because there wasn’t a lot of sex and violence. I’m not a prude, but there’s way too much sex that’s strictly for shock value. Doesn’t add to the story. 

K8memphis/Kate. I’m going to miss Garage Sake Mysteries…Hallmark dropped Lori Loughlin after she was charged and found guilty of paying for falsifying her daughter’s university portfolio. Not sure if she will be replaced. All filmed in the Vancouver area with a terrific Canadian ensemble cast. Sad.

 I love Mystery 101, Morning Show Mysteries, A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery, Crossword Mysteries…love em all

Regina How are you watching Little House on the Prairie??  YouTube??? Or DVD’s?  I’ll put my thinking cap on, cause my kids watched a lot of quality programs.

June, we watch the little house for free with Amazon Prime Videos...it comes with ads... As I said, no TV, no Netflix, no cable. My husband connect the laptop to a projector in the Livingroom and voila!

Ahhhh I see Regina.  If you can find Fraggle Rock…your kids would enjoy that. Produced and filmed in Canada. 

Touched by an Angel….loved that show. Full House …. Highway to Heaven…these are a few programs that were family friendly

I'm sorry I can't help there.  We were never much for watching TV.  Little House was the only thing Janet and I watched.  We both preferred readying, still do.

Hey June I used to watch Fraggle Rock when I was little... I still remember the lyrics of the intro...well, in Spanish! I did not know it was Canadian! I'll check that out. I'll check the other ones as well, I also remember full house, but at some point it becomes too much of a teen-ager drama...! I only have one teenager... and no drama with her!

Sandra, totally agree, I think the imagination of the little ones takes better shape with books... The TV nowadays is too dirty for children... well, at least for mine (including the rascal!) But well, once in a while they also watch documentaries!

Thanks ladies for your help... Take care, seems Covid is back, now with high heels!

isooo Agee with this.  However most of my TV viewing is more into game shows, & things like Escaping Polygamy; 90 day fiancé (but it’s going off track lately); MASH; flea market flip; married @1st sight; mysteries of the abandoned; storage wars; & American pickers.

thumbs up on yes to the dress -- and I might have already said this -- but the first two episodes of  'making the cut' season two are on Amazon prime -- with heidi klum and tim gunn -- it's a fashion competition --

I got off watching Say Yes to The Dress.  I do love Dr Sandra Lee….Dr.Pimple Popper.  Grosses my family out!!!!! But I watch because Dr Lee helps out soooooo many patients with some pretty severe dermatological issues. Not just popping pimples.

Pimples; cysts; all kinds of large bumps many in odd places.  One guy had what looked like a 3rd testicle.  Several have egg size/shaped bump on the forehead.  A couple guys gave multiple lumps on their nose.  Dr lee is a pretty, little gal.  She cuts open the bumps & squeezes out the yucky stuff out.

Me too, ReginaCoeliB!  I had to leave for half a day before coming back.  I am sticking to Anne with an E (Anne of Green Gables) and Little House on the Prairie.

i got another one -- clarkson's farm on prime -- not especially kid worthy... again, reggie, sorry! he  has a bit of potty mouth but Funny! this guy jeremy clarkson decides to farm his property with apparently zero knowledge of farming -- in england in the cotswolds -- just the prettiest scenery -- he bought a lamborghini tractor -- while at a sheep auction he says in his very british accent "amazon have said they want as much diversity in this show as we can possibly manage, and i think we're doing well because if you look there's every different type of white sixty year old man here" ROFL

"Jeremy Clarkson is an English broadcaster, journalist, farmer, game show host and writer who specialises in motoring. He is best known for the motoring programmes Top Gear and The Grand Tour..."

show was just renewed for a second season -- really it is hysterical!!!

Hi guys…..been without Internet for a day. Hopefully straightened  out now. But the provider messed up our tv pkg. Hubby has to call and fix. 

Seems I grossed everyone out with Dr. Pimple Popper…Dr Lee. I loooooove watching a good squeeze, all the gross stuff oozing out. Ha Ha, guess I’m a sicko!! And blood doesn’t bother me, watched many real surgeries on tv. My kids use to pass out at the sight of blood. When I was a dental assistant, I assisted on lots of extractions. Lota blood sometimes, didn’t faze me. And I was in my 20’s. My poor Dad use to get large boils on his back. My Mom routinely lanced them. Watched my Mom do it so many times. I thought everyone’s Mom did it. Guess I learned young.

I’m really big on trivia shows …. Jeopardy; the chase; and game shows.  One of my favorites was minute to win it.  Once in a while I can get it on a Spanish station.  Don’t know but a word or two but can follow the games w/o knowing what is being said

Kakeladi/Lynne…. I love any word games. We enjoy Jeopardy, occasionally Wheel of fortune. I use to really enjoy Concentration and Password. We had the password game and use to play with our kids. We still love to play Trivial Pursuit….invented by a Canadian don’t you know.

Yep password & concentration were big favs back in the day.   I still do concentration.  I go on line to find 12-20 letter words making sure they have all the vowels then see how many different words I can come up with
