Maid Saturday, Oct 23 2021 

This is a great series with a newcomer at the helm. This is a woman’s film. I was happy to see that the Puget Sound area has a network of places for people who are domestically abused physically and mentally. It also sheds light on mental health problems of the homeless. It is very well written , acted and directed. This maid is very determined to see her daughter protected and cared for. The portrayal of the “maid” is the actual daughter of Andie MacDowell , Margaret Qualley. I know mom must be very proud of her accomplished daughter. Speaking of Andie MacDowell – her portrayal of the Bi Polar mother in the piece is quite accomplished also. It is definitely a stretch from her past work. Accomplished, earthy and over the top.

Bridgerton Thursday, Dec 31 2020 

Well, this show is very popular, and I do enjoy watching it, but I am an adult. It’s to say the least, pretty racy. Well written and acted though. The dialogue is sprightly and the characters are very well drawn. At one time I wanted to be an actress – I’m kind of glad I didn’t pursue that – it seems that very revealing and embarrassing moments involving intercourse are the name of the game these days. Shakespeare wasn’t this roudy. The humor -especially Lady Whistledown’s gossip rag , (played skillfully by Julie Andrews) is well done. Have the kids watch cartoons in another room.
