Acorn – Ms. Fisher’s Murder Mysteries – this historical drama comedy has been an Aussie favorite for years and is worth the watch. Serial Who’d Done It Police Crime Drama with Historical Moments Sprinkled throughout the episodes. The costumes have won numerous awards.
Acorn – Bomb Girls – this is another UK historical drama set in war time highlighting the efforts of the women in the bomb factories. Well worth the watch.
Amazon – Alex Rider – Fast paced, spy action thriller. Reminiscent of Tom Cruise type movies
Amazon – Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fun, snarky dark humored comedy representing early female Jewish comedians. Fantastic fun watch.
