SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Greater Palm Springs, CA

SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE: Greater Palm Springs, CA

 

What Art Deco is to Miami is what Mid-Century Modern is to Palm Springs. Samantha finds this out first-hand by taking a tour of several iconic homes built in this style, then visits Gypsyland, a local furniture shop that specializes in period furniture. Golf is hugely popular in Palm Springs, but FootGolf? Samantha learns all about this new international sport and gets a chance to put her foot into it. At The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, Samantha volunteers to help assemble some of the unique enrichment meals with an Animal Care Curator. From there, Samantha gets a tutorial in stunt driving, and takes it to the course, doing a reverse J-turn, and “drifting” in watery conditions. Slowing down the pace, Samantha visits Shields Date Garden, talks to a “Palmero” about intricacies of pollenating date trees and finishes off with a world famous date shake. Finally, Samantha ventures out to the historic Joshua Tree National Park, where she meets with a charismatic Park Ranger and gets a chance to soak in the beauty of this treasured Park.

SAMANTHA BROWN'S PLACES TO LOVE: Shanghai, China

 

It’s the most populous city in the world, and full of juxtapositions. Both overwhelming and charming; foreign and familiar; ancient and on the cutting edge of modern innovation. There is a certain mystique about the Far East, and Shanghai is the perfect place to experience it. On this episode, I visit the ancient water town of Fengjing, soak up the Art Deco architecture along the historic Bund, shop at an iconic knife and scissor shop on Nanjing Road, learn the art of paper cutting, and much more. Here’s why Shanghai is a place to love.

AGATHA CHRISTIE’S POIROT
The Labours of Hercules

 

Since his debut on television in 1989, Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot has put his brilliant intellect and fastidious nature to the test as he solves the most mystifying crimes of the Art Deco era. David Suchet returns in his signature role as the suave Belgian super sleuth, exercising his “little grey cells” by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not. These final lavish adaptations feature guest stars Iain Glen, Helen Baxendale, Philip Glenister and Hugh Fraser.

 

The Labours of Hercules
Poirot journeys to the Swiss Alps to lay a trap for the infamous art thief Marrascaud, with catastrophic results. Devastated, Poirot falls into a heavy depression, and it is not until a lonely chauffeur begs the detective to find his missing true love that Poirot feels he can return to his work. As he investigates this new case, Poirot stumbles upon the hotel now thought to be Marrascaud’s hideout. As an avalanche cuts off access to the hotel, Poirot finds himself in a game of cat-and-mouse with a villain he fears and despises.
