Recommendations for shows and movies we have enjoyed (or not!)

Martin Clunes: Islands of the Pacific

Martin Clunes: Islands of the Pacific

We just finished up Martin Clunes: Islands of the Pacific. It is the third season of the show and we highly recommend watching all three. The photography is breathtaking and Clunes is a fun guide. Definitely recommend putting these on your watch list.
Iron Chef

Iron Chef — What We’re Watching

Our latest find is the reboot of Iron Chef on Netflix. Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend features Alton Brown and Kristen Kish as the co-hosts. Iron Chef was one of our steaming favorites and we are glad it is back.

No Offence — What We’re Watching

Our latest find on Acorn TV is No Offence, a British police procedural set in Manchester. The storylines are fast-paced, gritty and irreverent in tone. Worth checking out!

Redemption — What We’re Watching

Our latest Britbox find is a new Irish show, Redemption. This is a police drama set in Dublin. The supporting cast is solid. The scripts are pretty well written. We would recommend adding it to your watch list.
Signora Volpe Banner

Signora Volpe — What We’re Watching

Signora Volpe is a new series on Acorn TV that we watched last month. They took the premise for Under the Tuscan Sun and made it a wrapper for a crime drama featuring a disillusioned British spy. As strange as that sounds, they blend an appealing setting, engaging characters, and some interesting storylines into an entertaining show.
The Good Karma Hospital

The Good Karma Hospital — What We’re Watching

We just started The Good Karma Hospital on Acorn TV. This medical drama follows doctor Ruby Walker who travels from England to India looking for a job and a distraction from a bad breakup. Arriving at an under-resourced hospital, Ruby must learn to cope with her eccentric patients and coworkers.
Jo on Acorn TV

Jo — What We’re Watching

Our latest watch is Jo, an English language French police procedural series. It stars Jean Reno in his first TV role. Some cool Paris shots, but we can really only recommend this a "filler."
The Chelsea Detective on Acorn

The Chelsea Detective — What We’re Watching

The Chelsea Detective is a new Acorn TV original that was released last week. It is a police procedural set in the posh Chelsea neighborhood of London. We enjoyed Episode 1 and will be watching the rest of the series.
Sister Boniface Mysteries

Sister Boniface Mysteries — What We’re Watching

Our latest BritBox find is the Sister Boniface Mysteries. This Father Brown spinoff is a light-hearted murder mystery set deep in the 1960s British countryside. It stars Lorna Watson as a clever, Vespa-driving, crime-solving Catholic nun.

Shetland — What We Are Watching

Our latest British crime show find is Shetland. It is set in Shetland off the northern coast of Scotland. The plotlines and characters are engaging and the setting is stunning. Recommended for your watch list.
