Besides, I prefer to judge people who buy croutons.
Watching Agatha Christie's Poirot on Netflix again fills me with longing for living in that fictional world of beautiful locales that even people with modest incomes visited on holidays, glamorous clothes, and the way people interacted. Of course, it mostly applies to white folks. I cringe at any episode with any "foreigner". Asian portrayals are especially bad. But even then, at least they were set in the 20s and 30s, whereas Sherlock is set in modern times and still pulled that crap!
I also can't help but notice how far we've come with restricting smoking. Man, they smoked everywhere even as recently as the 80s.
Watching this episode of Poirot (set in 1935), I sort of gasped seeing everyone smoking in a stockholder's meeting!
