I was reading Susan Branchs’ post the other day HERE .
As usual, her post was long and lovely and visually appealing…toward the end of the post she mentioned this show…and I quote ” Now, before I go, I have to tell you about a TV show that I bet you already know about, but just in cases: You should try to find A Place Called Home. It’s on Acorn TV (probably other places too) ~ it’s set in rural New South Wales in Australia, and is so well-written and so well-acted, and so exciting that sometimes you’re forced to wring your hands and yell at the TV screen, because it’s very fast-paced and everything that COULD happen, does. The music is great and the cars are fabulous! Set in the 1950s. If you have any worries on your mind, this will give you respite. And Joe likes it as much as I do. There are three seasons available right now . . . a good winter hibernation project! We pour wine, make dinner, get blankies and settle in. Give yourself a few episodes to get used to it, because it just gets better and better.”
I had never heard of this series, nor Acorn TV, but after a little research, I found that both are highly recommended. If you have never heard of it, ” Acorn TV streams world-class mysteries, dramas, and comedies from Britain and beyond ”
I found that I could sign up for the free trial either on their site or through Amazon. Since I am an Amazon Prime member I did it there. Prior to this I wanted to check out some of the other programs, other than the one that Susan recommended, and many looked very interesting.
Last night I settled in to watch the first episode of A Place to Call Home and after binge-watching three or four in a row, I have to say that Susan Branch was right! Aside from The White Queen, I didn’t think that I’d find anything that would get me hooked on something in the the way that I was hooked on Downton Abbey, but this series is amazing.
I pulled this image from the Amazon site…I am sure they won’t mind :)
I haven’t done a recommendation post on here for ages but this one is worth checking out if you are not familiar with it.
And if for any reason you are not familiar with Susan Branch or her blog, you will certainly enjoy the link at the beginning of this post.
