PBS Masterpiece On Amazon
Yesterday I signed up for the free 7 day trial of PBS Masterpiece on Amazon. I was looking for a way to check out Magpie Murders that some of you suggested I watch.
I’ll also get to watch the rest of the first season of Annika starring Nicola Walker. I only got a taste of it with the first episode.
Now I will get Prime, Britbox, and Masterpiece. I let Netflix go some weeks ago, as I couldn’t find anything decent to watch on it lately.
Longmire is probably the best series I watched on Netflix.
So if I want to continue with Masterpiece, I will pay for it along with Britbox and that’s still a little less than what I paid for Netflix.
Do you ever find yourself taking on the Brit euphemisms? The other day I thought to myself: Boy, I’m knackered. I’d better sit down and rest a bit.
When I Watch TV:
I only watch TV at night except for the rare occasions I watch a movie during the day. At night I like to watch an episode or two of whatever series I’m currently watching.
Then I go to my bedroom and read. I spread a yellow/gold throw on the end of the bed and Ivy naps on it while I read.
Ivy In A Dither:
Last night Ivy was in a dither. There was a small flying bug high on the wall and she couldn’t reach it. So she meowed a bit about her predicament.
As soon as I turn off the lights to sleep, Ivy will hop down from the bed and take her swirly toys into the guest bath and bat them around. Then I suppose when she tires of that she decides to explore.
The other night after I turned off the lights, I heard her getting into something in my office/craft room. I could hear her moving things about.
No telling what she was doing. But when I got up the next morning I didn’t see anything amiss.
In the living room I fold up a soft throw on the couch and she naps there during the day when I’m working in my chair just about 5 feet away from her.
Oh, the stories we gather about our beloved pets.
I can hear the birds chirping outside. They are very happy that Ron and John have put their bird feeders out again, I’m sure.
Link To Ivy’s Favorite Things:
I keep meaning to tell you that I’ve put a link to most everything I’ve purchased for Ivy at the bottom of the page.
It includes many of the items that you ask me about. So I added it for your convenience. Here’s the actual link.
The Mourning Dove:
I wanted to relay that the mourning dove died.
The morning after I gave the bird cage to Lynn to shelter the bird, the bird cage was sitting on my patio. Later she told me that it had died.
The poor thing didn’t last 24 hours though Lynn was providing care for it.
Have you ever subscribed to Acorn TV (it’s British also and I subscribe through Amazon)? It’s my bad but I recently figured out that I pay separately for them and I thought it was a bundle (BritBox + Acorn for one price). Maybe I need to reconsider what I’m subscribing to????
The Masterpiece channel on Amazon has a large inventory of police procedural from many European countries that are well worth watching.
Already commented but meant to say that Ivy cracks me up – I love the way she goes into the bathroom w her toys when you go to sleep:-)
I have no idea why she does that. But it’s every night I hear those swirly toys being batted around on tile.
Last Tango In Halifax is a good story too! I also donate a small amount monthly to PBS & that gives me access to Passport PBS shows, including Masterpiece. PBS has a free stand alone app with a lot on it but does not include Masterpiece. If you decide to go the PBS donation route (after your free trial) you would download the PBS app separately just like Netflix etc – & then when you donate you will be given access to the Passport series that includes Masterpiece. Or keep the app through Amazon – I think the savings are minimal but these streaming apps add up!!! I have certain apps (like Apple) that I renew to binge watch a few shows and then cancel until next seasons are out LOL. On Masterpiece I have enjoyed Downton Abbey, Ernest Hemingway, Miss Scarlet and The Duke, Sanditon… & of course Magpie Murders!
Oh, I didn’t know he died! I just Googled it and he died of heart disease at age 60. So sad.
We donate $60/year to our local PBS station and stream Passport that way. Not sure if that is a savings over Amazon.
Thanks. Will check into it.
I like to watch movies in the evenings too. Then when I’m ready to go to bed, I’ll read on my phone, or watch YouTube until I get tired. We all have our own little nighttime rituals, don’t we? I don’t think I’d have been able to stand it, if I’d heard Ivy playing with my things, lol. I would have gotten up to investigate, lol. She is such a funny girl! I love hearing about the funny things she does. I looked at the list of things you bought for Ivy. I liked the hair brush. It says it’s good for dogs or cats. I like that it’s so easy to clean the hair out of it. They need to make that for people too! I’m glad Spring is in the air. I’m sure you’ll get some enjoyment out of watching all the wildlife. I can’t wait to see all the pictures you’ll be able to take. I loved the red cardinal by the birdhouse you took the other day.
I figured Ivy wouldn’t actually break anything since I have carpet, so I let her be.
I liked Nicola Walker in a old PBS series; “Last Tango in Halifax”. I also loved “Longmire” and was sad when it was cancelled on regular cable. I cancelled my subscription to Netflix years ago; because of their radical political ideologies. I enjoyed “Bosch” and was shocked to read that Lance Riddick, who played “Chief Irving” died in March of this year. I am going to start watching the sequel, ” Bosch: Legacy”.
Ivy is such a character! Her stories always make me laugh and I am happy she has you!
