I’m slowly teaching mom to turn on Netflix on her own. Let’s see if it happens by the end of April. My hopes and dreams will be she can navigate it herself to turn on and off (not just by turning off the TV) on her own.
This month’s pixs, a little late because I’m trying not to sit at my computer as much. But that doesn’t stop mom from watching her shows.
Memories of Alhambra
Not really sure what this one is about. Looked good from the Netflix ratings. But once it started with a strange scared man running through a city, the businessman checks into ratty bed and breakfast
All to strange and fast pace for mom. The time travel or alternate environment story with fast cuts, not a lot of screaming and fighting ladies made this one a “Can we change it to another one?” right away.
A man goes to look for his missing brother. He discovers that a mysterious bundle of incense has the power to send him back in time, where he has the opportunity to alter the past.
In the beginning, she liked it because of the setting and the characters but once again, time travel and very subtle time travel, she couldn’t track the difference between the time changes. Some screaming with goofy Korean male characters. I had high hopes for this one but alas it got a “Can we change it to another one?”
The Hymm of Death
“During the Japanese colonial period, married playwright Kim U-jin falls in love with soprano Yun Sim-deok, one of Korea’s notable New Women.”
I “googled” this description because all I couldn’t tell from the short time I watched it with my mom what was happening. All I could tell was it took place in Japan, there was an anger playwright and an a standoff-ish singer.
This got a “Can we change it to another one?” Too serious and not much screaming and fighting. A bit too historical for her.
The Lady in Dignity
Once again, I “googled” the description.
“The wife of a corporate heir finds her luxurious life overturned by a mysterious woman who joins the household as a caregiver for her father-in-law.”
But the little I watched it I couldn’t tell you if that is a true description. I could tell from the little snippet that I saw was screaming, fighting and my mom glued to the screen.
This got “This is so good!!!” It was right up her alley, lots of ladies fighting and screaming, scheming to get the family’s fortune, the mystery woman and trying to kill off the father.
FYI: I added some flowers from Cora’s garden. She has many blooms come up this spring.
