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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
We wanted to take a little break from all of the "mystery, mayhem and death" shows that we have been watching on BritBox and Acorn TV lately. We found some travelogues featuring Martin Clunes that filled the bill.
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.
