Seeking sweet television shows as an antidote to the sour US election

In the most recent election thread over on Metafilter blue, a discussion about the British comedy Detectorists and its effect as a balm to us election-weary folks has been at a gentle simmer. I am one more episode from the end (again), and am looking for a new show to watch with my mom that has a similar kind and calming feel. It need not be British (though aren't they just the best at this?), but something available on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime is ideal. [more inside]

What "lifetime" subscriptions or memberships do you recommend?

Do you know of a "lifetime" subscription or membership or purchase that you recommend or that seems interesting or a good deal? (An opportunity to pay once and reap ongoing benefits/dividends indefinitely.) In this modern era of low job security, I think I'd like knowing I'll always have a few Nice Things (or simply just reliable things) regardless of what financial turbulence the future may bring, so I'm curious what might be out there along those lines.

Whither "catch"?

"Nice catch!" you'll think, realizing that I deserve kudos for noticing that this question is hard to find an answer to. But where does the phrase "nice catch" come from? Why is noticing and identifying a thing a "catch"? When was this first used and whence did it come?

Where can I find an outstanding jazz bar in London?

Where are some awesome jazz bars in London? I am looking for somewhere that has a resident live band... the kind of thing you'd imagine Brad Pitt and George Clooney planning a casino heist in with both of them wearing suit and shirt with no tie. Whilst drinking Scotch. Bonus points if it's a place that has an entrance fee to discourage the riff-raff.

Grocery shopping in Nice

I have a couple of very specific questions about our upcoming travel to Nice, France. 1. Does the Monoprix located on Avenue Jean Medecin sell groceries? And if so, would it be likely that we can find space in the nearby car park at about 6 pm on a Saturday? (We're coming directly from the States to a rural gite and will need to buy provisions for at least Sunday breakfast.) 2. Does the Monoprix at Place Garibaldi sell groceries and, if it does, is it possible to park nearby? (Both of these stores figure on our planned route out of the city. However, maps only show car parks near the one on Jean Medecin.) 3. Does traffic on Avenue Thiers, where the train station is located, run in both directions or just one way? It's not totally clear from all the maps I have consulted. If it is only one way and to the east, we'll have to greatly revise our itinerary out of town. Thanks muchly.
