Inhale deeply, and breathe the fresh air.
I love this time of year. It’s the time of year when you sit down, and relax from the busyness of Summer. The time of rain, and changing of the leaves. The time for cloudy days and Holidays. A time when Nature begins to unwind, and prepare for its Winter slumber…only to reawaken in Spring.
Yes…I love Fall.
As an avid Crafts-woman, it’s also the time of year that I begin to work on those Christmas gifts, to hand out to family and friends. Taking time to sit down, unwind to a cup of tea, and crochet/knit while watching TV, is something I really look forward to. Below is a list of favorite TV shows that I hope will inspire you, or help you unwind after a busy day.
For Comedy and Drama, I really enjoy watching old episodes of “Northern Exposure“. This sitcom won 3 Emmy Awards, 2 Golden Globe Awards, and ran from 1990 to 1995. I love the sense of “community” and the way it is portrayed in Cicely, Alaska. Being a city girl all my life, it’s very easy to forget how one person can impact a whole community. Northern Exposure does a great job portraying that.
Another Comedy I really enjoy is the British sitcom “Keeping Up Apperances“. The whole series is available on Netflix and many episodes can be found onYoutube. I love watching Hyacinth Bouquet (spelled B-U-C-K-E-T) attempt to live the ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’, only to have it “flop” at the last minute. Her antics and last minute disasters are always good for a laugh.

What about Action?! Fear not friend. Abi-IHae has you covered! The sitcom “Merlin” featuring actors Colin Morgan, Angel Coulby, Bradley James, and Katie McGrath is the latest “thing” to hit the British Airwaves. And man..is it GOOD!!!! Currently on Netflix are Seasons One thru Three. Once you start watching, you are sure to love it!
The British Action Drama, “Robin Hood” is also excellent. If you love chivalry, and danger, this drama is for you. Men in particular enjoy this drama. (I know my hubby did!!!) It is based on how the Robin Hood legend began. This one will keep you on edge for sure. Seasons One to Three are available on Netflix.
If you are into Korean Drama, “Iris” is one that will grab your attention. The best way to define it is ‘the Korean Version of “24″ – only shorter, and with subtitles.
This Action Drama is available on Hulu. The handsome Lee Byeong Hun plays the role of Kim Hyun Joon, an agent running from an Organization that has turned against him.Viewer Beware: Once you start, you won’t be able to stop till all 20 Episodes are done!
If Action and Comedy are not your favorite genres, then may I suggest a little Romance? The Korean Drama, “Spring Waltz” is one you will fall in love with right away. Everything in this drama is beautiful.
The scenery is beautiful, the music is beautiful, and the men are breath-taking! This drama will inspire you and remind you that love is a beautiful thing. If you don’t believe in romance, I guarantee you will after watching this drama. This drama is also available on Hulu. Grab some tissues as you watch. This one is a tear jerker.
My list could go on and on, but I think this is a good start. Grab your cup of tea, sit back, and unwind. You deserve some good, quality TV after a long hard day.
