Did I mention “light, uplifting TV” before? There was a point where we were simultaneously watching this, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Underground Railroad, and Halston. You can forgive us for feeling a little emotionally wrecked! The Serpent was a 1970s true story about a thief & murderer of backpackers in Bangkok. Exquisitely performed and set-dressed, you didn’t doubt it was the 70s at all.  A brief moment of wistful sadness overcame us when some characters drove from Paris to Goa – in today’s political climate that feels like an unthinkable journey. But clearly they used to do it. AND in those 1970s (or older) cars, too. 👍
