the frozen dead


Here’s a new mystery series on Netflix.  It’s in French, with English subtitles, and set in the French Pyrenees.

We liked almost all of the episodes–good characters and lots of mysterious happenings–but the last episode left us…cold.  It ended with a cliffhanger and set up a future Season 2.   Lots of shows do this (Broadchurch, The Killing, The Fall) but I much prefer real endings.  C’mon, writers!

Speaking of France…


If you’re looking for a story of grief and love and new beginnings, the Kindle edition of this book is available on Amazon now for only $1.99.

And speaking of books…

This Netflix series is adapted from a Harlan Coben novel, THE FIVE.  We’ve watched three episodes and we’re absolutely riveted.

From Netflix:  “A mystery series created by author Harlan Coben.  Jesse, a five year old boy goes missing, 20 years later his DNA shows up at a crime scene.”

The Five

Other television notes:

THE BACHELOR has returned to ABC on Monday nights.  Be still my heart.

THE AMAZING RACE has returned!  Lots of good racing teams this season, and the tasks and challenges are difficult.  Good tv on Wednesday nights!

And one of my favorites, HUNTING HITLER, is back for its third season on Tuesday nights on the History  Channel.  I’ve finally convinced Banjo Man that it’s worth watching and he is now a fan.  If you can find the first two seasons on Hulu or the History Channel app, it’s an education on what went on during the last weeks of World War II in Berlin and Germany.  One of the world’s biggest mysteries is what happened to Hitler, and this team–and these guys are the real deal–is determined to find out.

Let me know what you think!!
