  • Down to Earth - Two buddies travel the world learning and experiencing how we can & do live better on the earth and with each other. Well done!

  • Somebody Feed Phil - A lighthearted, but sincere dive into food from around the world and the people and cultures that make it special. Host Phil Rosenthal, the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, is deliciously silly.

  • After Life - Comedian Ricky Gervais created and stars in this comedy-drama series about living after a loved one has passed. Uncomfortably real, but then we smile because we all have a heart.

  • Chef's Table BBQ - I watched the first episode of this Emmy nominated series...blew my mind. At age 85, Pitmaster Tootsie is pure inspiration. Perfect... cinematography, story, editing. A journey!

HULU

  • Cesar Millan - Better Human, Better Dog - A brilliant way to learn by seeing the emotions of dogs (and kids, parents). Very insightful for our human emotions and behaviors! Watch what it looks like to be in the emotions of a family, pack, and community. Cesar explains the emotions and behaviours. Well done!  Hint: Watch for the "yawn" when tension is released. And how to not fight and play together. Season 3 has12 Episodes
