I think many of you will consider Vanity Fair to be binge-worthy. (I am not finished with it yet, up to the 3rd episode and trying hard to wait until tonight to turn on the television. But I know I can recommend it without hesitation.)
I watched all 7 episodes yesterday. Thank you for the recommendation (I think) LOL.

The sets, costumes and overall filming were spectacular and the story was engrossing. Loved the opening line, "Vanity Fair, a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having". Now to get something done today.

I was told by a friend that the new season of Grace and Frankie is available on Netflix on Friday.
I'm a big fan --- talk about aging well!

I tried watching Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime, but I couldn't get into it.
I liked Homecoming better, but it's weird. I haven't watched all the episodes yet.

I have not started the new season of Grace and Frankie yet but plan to soon.

Homecoming is weird but uncomfortably believable. The cynic in me guessed exactly what they were up to early on.

Loved Mrs. Maisel and her clothes.

Shameless confession: I have a shameless addiction to Shameless. Sometimes it is so raunchy it makes me cringe, and I thought the writing was getting a little lazy last season, but I can't resist wanting to check in to see how the Gallaghers are doing. William Macy, as Frank, is a terrible person, but fun to watch.

I think it is back on Showtime now, but we don't have Showtime. Might have to get it. Shameless brings out the prude in me sometimes but that does not stop me. (sigh) I guess that makes me shameless.

Is Shameless on Netflix or Amazon Prime?
I want to watch a couple of episodes and perhaps I'll get hooked also.

I've had one PM but she had it recently done so she hasn't seen the benefit YET.
Anyone else have it done in the past? If so, please send me a PM.

I think the old seasons are on Netflix.

I liked the earlier seasons better than the last one. But I will probably shamelessly, eventually subscribe to Showtime for a while to get the season that just started.

If you go to TOTV's Search and type in the word Shameless and ask it to search Threads Only, you will find 2 old threads that talk about the show. -- I had never heard of the show before reading about it here. -- Yes. (sigh) It was the OPs who started those threads who led me down the Shameless path. (blush)

"Wild Oats" is a movie I just found on Netflix. It has Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lang and that guy who was Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP whose real name escapes me right now.

It is a sweet, light movie about people in later life.

The plot is unrealistic, but I did not care. It kept me amused for an hour and a half -- a bowl of popcorn, and a little red wine -- the perfect movie length for me. Some funny dialogue and some relatable moments.

It is a movie like "Boynton Beach Club" and "Quartet."

I thought maybe some of you might like this movie, too.

Thanks Boomer - I've made a note to watch Wild Oats.

Oh my! I just got a J. Peterman catalog and I can’t stop reading that hilariously over-the-top prose that is their trademark copy.

Remember, that was the guy parodied on Seinfeld. He was Elaine’s boss and he talked just like the catalog copy. Tickled the heck outa me.

I have never bought anything from J. Peterman. But I think I just might do that.

Has anyone here ever bought from J. Peterman?

If so, how is the quality and how are the sizes?

Is a 12 a 12 or is it a 16 or a 10?

(You know how it goes with sizes. Every clothing manufacturer does its thing — and then there is Chico’s — where you have to break their code. For years I was afraid to try anything on in Chico’s, fled the scene quickly, because I thought Chico’s was for sizes 1 and 2 only. I always thought that was a dumb marketing scheme but I guess it works for them.)

As far as quality goes, when I was still working, Coldwater Creek was my go to and then something changed with them and their fabrics and soon the stores went away. I still cannot part with some of my old Coldwater Creek jackets.

Anyway, anybody? Any advice on J. Peterman?
