TV Chat #2 – Grace and Frankie, Chris Hadfield Teaches Space Exploration Masterclass

There’s been a fair amount of TV watching happening at the house these past couple of weeks! Refilling the well of creativity is really important to me, so I try to take a little time each day to watch some TV or read a book. Lately, I’ve been enjoying some good TV! Here’s what I am watching…

Grace and Frankie (On Netflix) has been a surprise delight. Jane Fonda is very much the overbearing spouse and Lilly Tomlin has the new-age, old hippie vibe down pat. They’re the opposite but they’re so good together! And Martin Sheen and Sam Waterstein as gay lovers are a hoot. I found the whole premise a little unbelievable at first and then they all surprised me with their humor and warmth. I’m enjoying all the side characters too. Im already on Season 2!

Chris Hadfield Teaches Space Exploration (On Masterclass) has been both informative and heartbreaking. Informative because I am definitely learning a lot about spaceship and rocket design, orbital mechanics, and the way our space programs work. Heartbreaking to see the loss of the shuttle and the astronauts who have perished with it. Space is fickle and dangerous but well worth the effort to explore. I’m hoping this whole class will give me plenty of creative energy for writing into the future!
