Two friends gave Netflix recommendations that I must pass along.
The first came from BigDot at TravelSkite, and I must agree, Derry Girls is wonderful. Imagine Gilmore Girls set during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Fast, funny (fecking funny) dialog, ya mothafuckahs. However I’m sure the Derry Girls would say Gilmore Girls is fecking shite because Rory and Paris are Protestant but that Luke would be a massive ride.
The second suggestion came from Julie, who suggested I watch Diagnosis, another Netflix series, based on a New York Times column in which a doctor crowd sources hard-to-diagnose cases. Sometimes the solution is a one-in-a-million case (emphasis on the one, and a good reminder to call your doctor if you don’t get your test results), and sometimes the solution is to try to get a patient to accept the diagnosis they got, and sometimes the solution is to stop talking to your Mom.
I heartily recommend both.
