Two Sagas and a Belly Laugh

Have you seen this?

PBS describes Series I as a " story of a love polygon that shifts like a kaleidoscope."

Watch'll want more. Series II is available as well. It takes up the story with a new generation of Forsytes.

When you're done and you find you crave more drama watch Downton Abbey.

It will leave you wanting more as well. Never fear, a second series is in the making.

When you've finished both of these great stories, but find you are in need of lighter fair....try this.

You'll laugh.

You'll be hooked. 


  1. Thanks ... always up for new good shows to watch

  2. I think I have seen a little bit of all of these.;) They are rerun on some of the BBC channels here.;))
    Have a lovely weekend,

  3. I love love love British humour! Haven't heard of Doc Martin, so thank you -will look it up!

  4. I don't think there is a PBS show that I haven't loved...starting with the original Upstairs Downstairs...I am old enough to have watched it from the start:)

    Love love love Doc Martin and I am anxiously awaiting 2012 when a new series is supposed to be available...I have diagnosed him with mild Aspberger's disease:)

    abd Downtown Abbey is my newest favorite...I even liked it better than the new Upstairs Downstairs! Great shows!!

  5. Oliag, my diagnoses exactly! I can't wait until the new season is available as well.

  6. i have heard of downtown abbey but haven't watched it yet. it seems like i've seen the last one now and again. great recommendations.

  7. I've watched and loved all of these Steviewren. Any programme featuring gorgeous Cornish scenery gets my vote any day, so I especially love Doc Martin.

    I'm just about old enough to remember the original BBC production of the Forsyte Saga from the late 60s I think, in b&w! Watching the re-runs on TV just recently I was struck with how brooding and sensual it was. My mum was hooked on it and now I know why!


  8. I saw the first series of the Forsyte Saga years ago and enjoyed it. Interesting that they have now made a new series - Dave

  9. I've watched them all,just grand!

  10. Hmmmm, the only one I haven't seen is the Doc Martin series. Thanks for sharing, I'm always looking for new BBC stuff to waste away my clean the house time slot. ha ha

  11. It's good to have some referrals. I don't watch too much tv...mostly, I watch Netflix movies.

  12. I'm not familiar with The Forsythe Saga. We watch PBS Masterpiece every week and love it. I thought Downton Abbey was particularly good and look forward to what happens in the next series. Upstairs, Downstairs was good but I think Downton Abbey outshone it. I like Masterpiece Mystery as well; hopefully we'll be getting more new episodes soon.

  26. Hey there terrific website! Does running a blog like this take
    a massive amount work? I have absolutely no knowledge of coding but I was hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should
    you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
