What:TV! Random TV! Well...mostly random. They tend to be British, historical, fantasy or sci-fi in nature. Now and then I'll throw in a movie. You'll just have to come here regularly to see what I've got going!

Vikings is inspired by the tales of the Norsemen of early medieval Scandinavia. It broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, family and descendants, as notably laid down in the 13th-century sagas Ragnars saga Loðbrókar and Ragnarssona þáttr, as well as in Saxo Grammaticus's 12th-century work Gesta Danorum. Norse legendary sagas were partially fictional tales based in the Norse oral tradition, written down about 200 to 400 years after the events they describe. Further inspiration is taken from historical sources of the period, such as records of the Viking raid on Lindisfarne depicted in the second episode, or Ahmad ibn Fadlan's 10th-century account of the Varangians. The series begins at the start of the Viking Age, marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793.

TURN: Washington's Spies is a Revolutionary War-era drama based on the Alexander Rose novel of the same name. The series goes beyond the battlefront to a conflict involving everyday men and women, taking place in a cryptic world of double agents, covert operations and code-breaking. It revolves around Abe Woodhull, a young farmer torn between loyalty to his Tory background and respect for those who fight for the patriot cause. Living on British-occupied Long Island, Abe joins a group of his childhood friends to form what becomes known as the Culper Ring, a spy network charged with sniffing out British military strategy. Under the direction of Gen. Washington, Abe and his fellow agents help turn the war to the Continentals' favor, and their daring efforts ultimately serve as the foundation for modern espionage.

Upstart Crow is a satirical Blackadderesque sitcom about how friends, family, historical circumstances, and his arch-rival Robert Greene, who first coined the derogatory term "upstart crow", influenced William Shakespeare to write his famous plays.

How To Watch:
  • RMTV is a system where we can all watch a video together. Like a combination of Netflix and live TV, content comes to you streamed over the Internet, but it's a live feed, meaning we all see the same thing at the same time. Using the ShoutBox feature, we all get together and watch. When a show is scheduled, just go into the ShoutBox, and type, "/join #RMTV", without the quotes, and that will put you in the channel for discussing what's being played.

    When a show is airing, all you need to do is go to the link below. The video window should just pop right up if you have pop-ups enabled for the Raven. All you need is a web browser. If you can watch YouTube, you can watch the broadcast. As many people as want can watch. The stream will downgrade to your connection level, so just about anyone can tune in.

By request (and because the timing fits perfectly since we just finished Season 1 of The Crown) this coming Sunday I'll be playing the movie "The Queen", plus an episode of Chef after. Taboo's last episode will be held off until the 26th.

On Dec. 3, we'll start relatively new with the start of Season 5 of Vikings, plus Season 1 of Versailles.

The same people behind The Queen are who would later make The Crown for Netflix. The Crown isn't stated to be, but might be considered to be, a prequel for The Queen. It's been my opinion that one compliments the other nicely. Hence, my suggestion.

Awesome! The Crown is almost over, so when it's done, I'll throw Season 7 up.

It's almost 8:00 and dinner's not even done cooking because I got home super late. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be running late tonight.

A modern take on the Eight Legs? If so, our Doctor won't be well for the encounter. They did kill her once.

Something to look forward to!
Call the Midwife Christmas Special Exclusive: introducing our three new Nonnatun Sisters!

As we countdown to our forthcoming Christmas episode, we are delighted to share this exclusive new picture with you!! These are our brand new Nonnatuns: from left to right - Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri), Sister Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) and Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar) ❤️

Our wonderful Series Writer and Executive Producer Heidi Thomas has been in touch to tell us about them, and what to look forward to as we enter Christmas and series 8. Heidi says:

“Our Christmas visit to the Order’s headquarters brings us three fantastic gifts - Sisters Mildred, Hilda and Frances. Elegant, scatty Hilda (Fenella Woolgar) and innocent Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) then move to Poplar at the start of the new series, whilst formidable Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) appears again in later episodes, keeping Nonnatus House on its toes!

Nuns are the beating heart of Call The Midwife - they are wise, hardworking, compassionate, and combine the patience of angels with the faults and flaws of ordinary women. I have wanted to add more Sisters to the CTM family for some time, and am thrilled that the sensible lace ups of Mildred, Hilda and Frances have been filled by three such extraordinary actors. Each of them has already made me laugh, and made me cry, and I can’t wait to introduce them to our wonderful audience."

Not long to go now till we can show you these new characters in all their glory! 😊😊😊

Call the Midwife returns with a new Christmas Special, and series 8 in 2019

Gillian Anderson is to follow in the footsteps of Meryl Streep, Patricia Hodge and Jennifer Saunders by taking on the role of Margaret Thatcher, it has been reported.

Anderson, who is in rehearsals for a West End adaptation of the 1950 film All About Eve, will take on the role as the latest eye-catching addition to the cast of Netflix’s lavish blockbuster The Crown.

According to the Sunday Times, she will reportedly appear as the former Conservative prime minister in series four of the show, with filming due to begin over the summer.

Much will depend on her chemistry with Olivia Colman, who has succeeded Claire Foy as Elizabeth II for the next two series of the show.
Found a picture of Thatcher from 1975. When she came into political prominence.
