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!

With monarchies tumbling in Europe, Victoria and Albert must confront what it means to rule in this new era. Constitutional crises, scandals, and a decade of marriage mean Victoria is tested like never before; as mother, wife, and Queen.

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.

If terms like "pimhole" and "lesbotic tendencies" reduce you to a fit of giggles, you've already discovered the daffy pleasures of Fry and Laurie. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie have gone on to other successes in film and television (not only did they gain acclaim and adoration as the title characters of Jeeves & Wooster, Laurie has become a household name in the U.S. as the star of House), but their comedy collaborations from the 1980s and '90s have earned them a place in the pantheon of British humor, somewhere between Monty Python and Ricky Gervais. They specialize in "linguistic elasticity," amazing flights of verbal lunacy ranging from overwrought poetry criticism to inventing their own swearwords to protest censorship.

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.

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.

I love Monica Joan so much.

(And yes, once I get the last two episodes of Vikings done, I'll start playing this series of Call the Midwife. :) )

FANTASTIC NEWS!!! Call the Midwife has just been confirmed for three more seasons!!

Just as Season 8 of Call the Midwife reached its finale in the UK, the BBC announced that Call the Midwife will continue for a further THREE seasons, including three new Christmas Specials!

Call the Midwife has been one of Britain’s most popular drama series since it launched in 2012 and it continues to be the most watched drama series in the UK. Season eight has currently averaged nine million viewers per episode, making it BBC One’s biggest show of 2019 so far and the highest rating returning drama across all channels this year.

With season 9 about to start filming, the drama will now be on air until 2022, and will depict Poplar life up until the year 1967. The critical and audience response to season 8 in the UK has been outstanding - the show has explored many areas of medical and social history, including the impact of disability, teenage pregnancy, Intersex representation, Sickle cell disease, mixed-race marriages, adoption, cot death and abortion.

Pippa Harris, Executive Producer for Neal Street Productions said:

“We are delighted and humbled by the continued warmth of the audience response to Call the Midwife. It’s a testament to the extraordinary creativity of Heidi Thomas who pours her heart and soul into every episode. We are thrilled that the BBC have put such faith in the show by commissioning more seasons, and we can’t wait to watch our wonderful cast and crew tackling all the social and medical changes which the swinging sixties will bring.”

Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer added:

“Even after all these years, it still feels as though Call the Midwife has more truth to tell, more tears to cry, more life to celebrate, and more love to give. We are blessed with the best cast, crew, and audience a show could wish for, and I could not be more excited about our future.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content comented:

“Everyone at the BBC is delighted we’re welcoming the nurses of Nonnatus House back for more seasons, and we’re all looking forward to following our cast through the tumultuous years of the late sixties. I’d like to thank the wonderful cast and crew, and particularly Heidi, Pippa and Annie for their continued creative ambition and dedication to such a very special show.”

On behalf of everybody who works on Call the Midwife, we’d like to thank you, our audience, for your incredible and continued support over the years. Our success is all down to you. ❤

THANK YOU ALL!! xxx

I nearly forgot! Victoria Series 3 has been out for, uh, a while now... I'll be playing that in place of Game of Thrones for a bit. Then Good Omens after that.
