This series moves along at a very quick pace. I'd call it frenetic comedy. Written by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

The madness of King Alan, mutter, mutter, mutter....
No worries. That works for me too. But I thought I saw it listed on Netflix recently.

She certainly did a great job writing "The White Queen", I'm hard pressed not to do a marathon watching of this serialized drama of her book. I recently finished watching a drama series on Netflix of Ken Follett's book World Without End set about a hundred years earlier right after Isabella defeated and imprisoned her husband Edward II, setting her son on the English throne. (Edward III)

Oh, did Phillipa Gregory write The White Queen? Oh wow!

Should I read the book first?

I haven't read the book, so I can't say.

We watched The Trip to Italy

Gorgeous scenery, dining to die for, thoughtfully hilarious costars. Here they are doing Batman actors:

This was very good. It's expiring Mar 20.

When Sinikka goes missing from the same spot where another girl was killed 23 years earlier, investigators work to unravel the parallel mysteries.

FWIW... A current New York Times article discusses the growing competition in the streaming industry.
Lots of information about the direction of the industry, the names and details of the new contenders,and some statistics that were surprising... ie. 40% of homes are now streaming.

Instead of posting the link, which could lead to the NYT paywall, try Googling the headline, which should lead to an approved link.

"Netflix, Amazon and Hulu No Longer Find Themselves Upstarts in Online Streaming"

We are watching Lilyhammer right now and it is awesome! Very funny show about a mobster who decides to move to Norway under the witness protection plan. Steven Van Zant (musician with the E Street band) is the main character, and as expected, the music is also great!

+1. Some episodes are a tad dark humor. Van Zant also played the mobster that owned the "Bada Bing" club in the "Soprano's".

We watch PBS shows on AppleTV via the PBS.org app. Recently aired shows are usually available to watch for free.

Earlier this week PBS sent me an email to let me know that the entire Mr. Selfridge Season 2 shows (Masterpiece Theater) would be available to watch for a week until 3/29. We had already watched one of the mid-season shows and thought it was pretty neat. I don't usually like to binge watch, but we decided it would be worth it this time.

Wow! Very enjoyable slice of London life in 1914 with a mix of American and English characters. Awesome settings and costumes. You really feel the whole Edwardian turn of the century vibe, art deco, etc. You really feel like you are there.

We hadn't seen Season 1. It didn't matter.

Selfridge's is a real store in London founded by a Chicago businessman.

We just finished watching West Wing, and I finished The Fall. Both were thoroughly enjoyable, although WW was a bit long.

Now we're starting Downton Abbey on Amazon Prime. DW is enthralled so far - we're at episode 3.

I've been watching "The Assets". A very good 1980's CIA/KGB spy series drama. Only lasted one season, (more reason to watch) probably not popular with low attention span audiences. Good acting, good characters and good story.

Edit: I should have said set in the 1980's but aired in 2014.

I just started watching it last week. Very good. I recognized the lead actress but couldn't quite place her so had to look her up and she played the mother of the missing boy in the drama Broadchurch. These folks get around, a Dorset village one week, Washington DC the next.

I have been enjoying "Turn", a period spy TV series taking place during the American Revolutionary War.
