Date night in has a certain appeal to it, don’t you think?
I mean, it’s more economical, for one thing. And you don’t have to get all dressed up, deal with traffic, fight for parking spaces, or put up with annoying crowds.
It can be nice to curl up on the couch and relax. With cable television and subscription services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu, you can always find something that appeals.
Mr. R and I have probably watched Breaking Bad, in its entirety, about four times. We’re slowly working our way through Season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale. Sort of savoring it, really, although it’s intense enough, you really wouldn’t want to binge-watch it. We finished the first season of Lost in Space on Netflix, and that was lots of fun. I’ll be up for Season 2 when it comes out.
Last night, we decided to try something new on Netflix, a strange suspenseful series called Safe, created by mystery and thriller author Harlan Coben. It stars Michael C. Hall (the creepy yet lovable serial killer star of Dexter) as a widower whose teenage daughter goes missing in a British suburban neighborhood where everyone has a shit-ton of secrets. We’ve seen three episodes so far, and I’m game to see where the story goes.
BUT, it’s the mesmerizing opening theme song, Glitter & Gold by Barns Courtney, that really drew me in. Gosh, don’t you love when you discover something cool? I’m also including his song, Fire. See if you aren’t as impressed as I am.
So for this July weekend, try to stay cool. Be sure to hug those you love.
Happy Saturday night!
