Friday Five: Comfort Media

A Thrifted Cozy CornerRevGalBlogPals Friday Five today is about Comfort, media style. 

Comfort, yes!  Comfort media, absolutely!  I have my own selection of movies and TV shows that are never old, no matter how many times you watch them.  These are the treats you curl up with during a bad cold or to unwind after a particularly challenging Consistory meeting. Just sayin’ … 

And don’t forget the comfort food!  In honor of the last few days of Fair Trade month, treat yourself to some Fair Trade chocolate from Theo Chocolate, the only only organic fair trade bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the United States.  For something hearty and spicy, check out my daughter’s yummy Rattlesnake Pasta — freshly posted today!  Surprise, it’s vegetarian!   Be ye comforted to the max!

My media comforts trend toward strong women, slapstick comedy and just plain escape:

Legally Blonde (movie) starring Reese Witherspoon as a blonde who is underestimated by almost everyone but herself.  Witherspoon herself seemed to be underestimated until she won the Oscar for Walk the Line.

The Closer (TV show) starring Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson.  She is sassy, competent, Southern, and is surrounded by a great supporting cast.  I watch every episode I can find, no matter how many times I’ve seen it before.  It’s just a fun show to watch.

Pretty Woman (movie) which is great Richard Gere and great Julia Roberts. I watch the whole movie to get to the last line, which gets me every time.

Fletch (movie) starring Chevy Chase.  I almost have this movie memorized and I still think it’s hilarious.

Instant Movie or TV Marathon — My daughter introduced me to The Deadliest Catch when we watched a bundle of episodes together marathon-style.  I am now watching the first three seasons of Mad Men with my son whenever we get the chance to squeeze in a few episodes.  I love Netflix!

  1. Great play. Legally Blonde is worth it for the video she submits to get into Harvard and her line when the ex says, "You… got into Harvard?""What? Like it's hard?"I love the Netflix-assisted marathons too.Thanks for playing!

  2. heehee, Legally Blonde! I confess to also liking the musical. That may mean I have to surrender my music snob membership card, but there it is…. :-)great play!

  3. love Legally Blonde. I didn't watch it for years, being a snob, and then one night on cable, it was all over. I love the tone, the way people work hard and have fun.

  4. Legally Blonde is tons of fun, and I'm convinced that Reese Witherspoon adopted some of her mannerisms from a woman who appeared in her store's commercials on TV here in Nashville (Reese's hometown). We are also fanatics for The Closer, and just watched Pretty Woman a couple of days ago. Fun!!
