I am addicted to watching DVDs while I sew. I have the tiny TV my daughter used to have in her college bedroom, & a DVD player, set up next to the sewing machine. And now I am addicted to getting my DVDs from Netflix. Currently on my baby TV: the BBC's House of Elliott
If you like Masterpiece Theater & BBC type series, here are a few you might enjoy. All are available on Netflix, and may also be available through your local library.
House of Elliott
Brides of Christ
The Midsomer Murder Series
