What I’m Watching

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I’ll admit it, I was a huge fan of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch back in the day, so I was really hesitant about watching the new series on Netflix.

Like Penny Dreadful, I’m classifying this one as a “problematic favorite.” If you missed the drama, the Church of Satan (yes, it’s a real thing) is currently suing the show runners for misrepresentation, which I totally get. The show is not an accurate representation of Satanism, and it does a lot to vilify practitioners. However, it’s also fiction–and not just fiction, but fantasy–and I love the representation of POC and LGBT+ characters. I’ll take the good with the bad, and enjoy the story in the mean time.

History Cold Case

I started watching this on Youtube, and it’s a great BBC series in which modern forensic scientists study deaths that are hundreds of years old. It’s been fascinating to watch, and has provided me with some great story fodder.

The History Guy

This one is actually a youtube channel with quick videos (5-15 minutes long) about little known facts, events, and people in history. I absolutely love the channel and the light hearted presentation.

Lords and Ladles

What does one watch when one runs out of Great British Baking Show episodes?

Well, if you’re looking for a friendly cooking challenge with none of the cut-throat competition of American shows, then you watch Lords and Ladles, where a team of expert chefs recreates recipes from the 15-1600s inside old Irish manor houses.

BBC If Walls Could Talk

I think by now we all know I’m a BBC documentary junkie. This mini series traces the history of the home from the middle ages to today by looking at how the individual rooms of the home have changed, and the technology they contain. I absolutely love this series.
