If you are looking for something new to watch on TV, today I am sharing three shows I love – a comedy, a documentary, and a home design show – something for everyone.
So Help Me Todd – CBS/Paramount +
If you loved the USA series Psych you will like So Help Me, Todd. One of my favorite actresses, Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, stars in this series as Margaret the meticulous (and very well-dressed – her clothes need an Instagram account) attorney who employs her talented yet aimless son Todd, played by Skylar Astin as her in-house investigator. The writing is sharp and witty and I love it when Margaret misquotes millennial jargon like the time she questions one of her clients after Todd shows her how Instagram messaging works – “I see here you slid into his BM.” Todd quickly corrects her, “No, Mom, DM. It’s a DM.” That kind of funny banter and the quirky way they go about solving crimes makes me come back every week to catch a new episode. Apparently, it’s doing very well in viewership.
On a mission to live better for longer, actor Chris Hemsworth leads us on six epic challenges along with top scientists to test different theories of regenerating damage, maximizing strength, building resilience, shocking the body, supercharging memory, and confronting mortality.
New scientific research is shattering conventional wisdom about the human body and offering fascinating insights into how we can all unlock our body’s superpowers to fight illness, perform better and even reverse the aging process. This science is put to the test by Hemsworth, who, despite being in peak superhero condition, is on a personal mission to learn how to extend our health, strength, and intellect further into our later years.
While most of us will never attempt the challenges he endures in the series, there are many takeaways we can all apply – our minds are a powerful tool to calm and motivate us to achieve our purpose. And, if treated with the respect it deserves, our bodies are miraculous temples. Oh, and Chris is definitely a hottie.
I discovered this exquisite home interior program in season one. The show is back for season two and I am still in love with Jean Stoffer the star designer. This series, to me, is like curling up in my softest pajamas while eating a lovely box of chocolates. I savor each episode.
Jean Stoffer, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, first achieved national recognition for her kitchen designs. Now she focuses on elegant and approachable designs for the entire home. Working alongside her family, season one chronicles everything from gardening to textiles selection in the renovations they take on. In season two, Jean shares the beautiful inspiration behind her designs and we get to know her family members who are equally as talented. Jean has an Instagram account as does her retail store Stoffer Home where they sell many of the home decor and design elements they use in their renovations. You will find NO modern farmhouse or BOHO chic in her designs which I find refreshing. Her design aesthetic is classically traditional.
Jean also has a book I think I might love – Establishing Home – Creating a space for a beautiful life for family, faith, and friends. Her mantra is “Create something functional and beautiful for someone who lives in a way that is unique to them.”
Let me know what you think. What are some of your favorite shows right now?
