Happy Friday and Happy New Year! I hope you're like me and enjoying a second long weekend. I'm starting a petition to do this once a month. At the very least.
But until then, I hope you'll enjoy this week's "5 Things":
1) Available on Netflix is a BBC detective show called Broadchurch that I have watched voraciously for the past week or so. There was an American version on the Fox network called Gracepoint (with the same lead actor). However, the British version has a cinematic quality to it and more natural dialogue that make it more appealing. And, I just found out that Broadchurch will be back for another season.
2) And speaking of Netflix (my favorite past time when it's cold out) I am also hooked on the series Velvet. It's a Spanish period piece from the 50's about a fashion house where the owner's son falls for a seamstress even though his father strongly objects to the match. Really interesting story and a great way to brush up on your Spanish if you like that sort of thing. (There are subtitles, of course.)
3) I may have mentioned this blog before but Daytonian in Manhattan is such a cool tribute to all the interesting architecture in Manhattan. All the buildings have such great stories. I love popping in from time to time to see the latest posts that are an enjoyable read for lovers of NYC like myself.
Okay, that's all for now. Have a great weekend, everyone!
