Ways to Spend My Final Days

Watching TV of course! But not just any TV. FOREIGN TV!!! [Enter triumphant music]. Okay, maybe I’m over-playing this [Ba-dum pssh], but the truth is I’m looking for anyway to channel [Ba-dum pssh] my Italian energies. And I’m not trying to show off [Ba-dum pssh] but if I don’t listen to Italian with the remaining days I have, I’m just going to screen [Ba-dum-…]

I found a fantastic show called “Nero Wolfe.” Set in Rome in 1959, it’s a remake of a series that aired in the 70’s. Wolfe is a big shot detective from America who has returned to Rome. From what I can gather (there aren’t subtitles) he is a grand fan of cooking and orchids, a bit proud, and observant. I didn’t see that last one coming.

It’s fantastic because with TV in Italy, you don’t need to own a TV to watch it. Every state-sponsored show streams live on Rai.it much like America’s Hulu. I’ve got my finger’s crossed that I’ll be able to find it and make it work back in the states, but there’s no guarantee of that. My search for Italian will not be in vain!

    Unfortunately that show cannot be seen outside Italy because they don’t have rights to broadcast it. However you have two choices, either get an Italian proxy, or get an app called Italian TV that broadcasts Italian TV live, and catch the show live (I believe it airs Thursday nights at around 9, Italian time). Good luck pal.

    Nice puns! I’ve got one for you:

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.
