Mom studies recipes + new food combinations, BBC type murder mysteries (loves the dark ones that come out of Sweden / Iceland / etc), doing internet research on anything.
I watch with her sometimes. I’m probably seen most of Midsomer Murders just wandering by her TV and sitting down. Currently there’s a Swedish one playing (she’s got Acorn on the streamer. [getting her Roku a few years ago was the best thing]
You can actually feel the cold emptiness in the Icelandic and Swedish murder mysteries. Like there’s shows of love but it’s all devoid of life. Very white as it were.
