Monday: British Import ‘Big Flower Fight’

big-flower-fightThink of it as “The Great British Baking Show” for florists: “The Big Flower Fight” (Netflix, streaming) brings in 10 pairs of  florists from across the globe to create giant floral wonders for the Royal Botanic Gardens. It’s hosted by Vic Reeves and Natalie Demertrion (of “What We Do in the Shadows”) co-host. But it’s all very polite.

Also from across the ocean comes the Irish drama “Dead Still” (Acorn TV, streaming), about 19th century post-mortem photographer drawn into a series of murders. Michael Smiley, Eileen O’Higgins  and Jimmy Smallhorne star.

Up until the coronavirus caused the Supreme Court to conduct its hearings by phone, and thus could be heard live for the first time, Clarence Thomas had only asked six questions in 14 years, the last one more than a year ago. Apparently all he needed was an audience. The week of live hearings last week brought 64 questions from Thomas.
