The only time I have the opportunity to watch TV is after the kids have fallen asleep. And it is rare that I am able to actually stay awake long enough to get through an entire movie or television episode. So, on those rare occasions when sleep doesn’t take over, finding something entertaining to watch is like eating chocolate cake. Not really, but it is a real treat to say the least.
Lately, I’ve been staying up way too late streaming Acorn television shows. Did you know they have their own streaming service now? And did you know a ton of their shows are available on hoopla through the Library? Below are two series I watched recently and really enjoyed.
The series is set in 1960s Australia, and the nostalgic touches do not disappoint. It begins with Peregrine Fisher inheriting her aunt Phyrne Fisher’s estate. Of course the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as Peregrine soon realizes she is a natural detective. Fans of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries will definitely enjoy this one!
The series begins with the main character, Agatha, retiring from a high profile career in PR. Her lifelong dream was to retire early and move to the Cotswolds. The movie length pilot episode finds Agatha trying to adjust to life in a small town by entering a quiche competition. Without giving too much away – let’s just say life in this small town is not boring. The series is full of twists and interesting characters. Fans of Midsomer Murders will eat this one up!
