You might remember me saying before that I’m not a big television watcher. I am super surprised but that is changing a bit.
You might remember that I told you that I subscribed to Acorn TV. For those of you who don’t know about it, Acorn is like Netflix. It allows you to stream television shows. They tout, “Stream world-class TV from Britain and Beyond”. I really like it and believe it is well worth the $4.99 a month. If I were here in the house by myself, I would only have Acorn and not Netflix.
It all started when I saw an add for the show “A Place to Call Home”. It is a six season show that I VERY much enjoyed. I enjoyed it so much that I broke the bank and got a Roku for my sewing room so I could watch.
I’ve finished the series now and I was thrilled with how the show wrapped up the series…. I think there are over 60 episodes. I loved every one.
I’ve gotten so I listen to fewer audio books and watch while I sew in the evening….or in the morning.
I don’t know what it is but I like British type shows so much better. Everyone isn’t drop dead gorgeous. Characters are flawed. Guns aren’t so prevalent. It general what I’ve seen I simply like so much better. Everything isn’t so veiled in sexual innuendo either…(but I haven’t watched much comedy so I can’t say about that)
I’ve also watch Loch Ness. It was recommended to my by a blog reader. This had some violence but still I liked it….good murder mystery for sure.
This was only one season so it was a quick watch.
I also watched Acceptable Risk.
This is only one season. I liked it too. Watching this so much reminded me or reading a book. It was laid out just like a murder mystery. I like how the show recapped the previous episode and then went on with the story. I very much liked it.
I also watched Mystery Road.
I liked this a lot. I love seeing the scenery and landscape of Australia where the show takes place. I know very little about Australian history. I can see that they too suffer with racial tensions. This is one season. Again it seem to me like I’m reading a book and every episode is a chapter.
For a girl who previously watched very little television, you can see that Acorn TV has really changed me. So far, I can’t say a single bad thing about it.
If you have Acorn and have shows to recommend, please do. I’d love some recommendations.
