We are loving the following shows/movies:
— Yellowstone – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4236770/ – it’s like a cross between the Sopranos meets Lonesome Dove set in todays time on Peacock and I’ve been binge watching it while I work the second shift the last few months as we prep for our Startup of the Year Summit.
— Emily In Paris – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8962124 – Season Two is out on Netflix and it’s fun to escape to Paris through the show. It’s light and I’d call it the next generation Sex In The City.
— Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11852724/?ref_=ext_shr_lnk)
