An unexpected road trip on Mo’s Summer TV Binge tour took us the UK and then south of the Mason-Dixon Line this past couple of weeks. Luckily for me, I brought my passport along for both.
Fish and Chips were on the menu as I hit every stereotype with my first show, Sherlock. The show from across the pond has always been on my list to watch, but a lack of trust in BBC shows had hindered my trip there. But shit changes and here I am, driving on the wrong side of the road and all.
The 90 minute run times per episode threw me off at first. Mostly because it got exhausting trying to binge a couple of episodes at a time. Nonetheless, I push through those overwhelming obstacles to complete the 3 seasons and came out clean on the other side. Basically, solid little show.
After a quick excursion to House land to remind myself that it’s in the running for worse way to end a show in 2013, I grabbed my passport to hit the South, specifically, Georgia. With all my vaccinations in place(suck it Jenny) I sat down for the show I thought initially starred Elizabeth Moss(top of the Lake), but came away massively intrigued at the talents of Abigail Spencer(pictured above).
Spencer in the Georgia sun, in sun dresses. What more can you want?
Next Up? Maybe some Kenny Powers or a trip back to WWII
