Yes, Home Fires is on Amazon prime. It turns out that the author of the book it is based on continued writing more books after the tv show was cancelled. It had ended on a cliffhanger so I'm looking forward to reading those.

Over the past two nights on PBS -- four part / four hour documentary "College Behind Bars" presented by Ken Burns, directed by Lynn Novick. Excellent! Wasn't paying full attention to it the first three hours. Definitely will watch again.

I know many of you watch Call the Midwife. I saw there is a special airing on Christmas Day. Just thought I would pass it on. Here is the trailer...

Does anybody know when Call the Midwife starts showing season 9 here in the US? I think it already started in the UK, but not sure when it starts here. We just went to streaming TV, so it's a little trickier finding all my shows.

I believe Call the Midwife is due to air at the end of March 2020 on PBS.

Did anyone watch the Sanditon series? I was disappointed in the finale. I've read there "could be" a second season in the works.

Yes, Mak1. I loved Sanditon, but I was also disappointed in the finale. I've read just about everything by Jane Austen (English Lit major in college and did my senior thesis on Austen). I understand that this was an unfinished work discovered after her death, but whoever finished it really screwed up. It was the most un-Austen finale ever! Nearly all her other books end up with the heroine getting married. I was super disappointed that Charlotte and Sydney didn't end up together. Otherwise I enjoyed it, but the ending really sucked.

If they do a season 2, maybe they'll kill off Mrs. Cameron (or whatever her name was) so Sydney can marry Charlotte!

I didn't like the end either. Andrew Davies who wrote the wonderful 1995 Pride and Prejudice did this as well. Methinks he was too cocky about assuming this would be a series. I know that they passed on a second season in Britain, so the only hope is that PBS pulls through for the U.S.

It was nice to see the love story for Esther and Babington. I didn't like her at all to start and then became fond of her.

Here is a good article I recently read about Sanditon.

I had the same disappointment, usually they don't end this sadly, even though there was a happy ending for Esther and Babington. To me it felt almost like they left it for a sequel but I hear that's the end of the series. Bummer...

I read that article too, Rieann, and it gave me hope. It was awful to feel so bummed at the end of a fictional story.

Popped in to say the same thing, Sugar. I recommend watching it from the beginning on Netflix.

I saw the first ep of Beecham House on Masterpiece, I liked the exotic location of Delhi, India and among those beautiful Indian costumes Beecham's clothes look to me more American than British. The actress playing the British governess doesn't have great looks for the role, or maybe there will be a more sensual woman for Beecham later on, but I'll watch.

I loved Beecham House, but apparently PBS decided not to pick it up for a second season. There's still some hope that one of the streaming services will pick it up. I hope it continues, cause they kind of ended on a cliffhanger. I really enjoy the period pieces. I also enjoyed "Indian Summers" on PBS, which was about the last days of British colonialism in India.

Thanks Baby, I thought it was a premiere but you already saw it. A cliffhanger and not a second season? Too bad, maybe the filming location made it too expensive for a tv show, but it's beautiful. I'll check Indian Summers, I saw the movie The Last Viceroy and it was a good one, and I loved A Passage to India.

PBS has been airing a Downton Abbey marathon for days. Keep repeatedly running the whole series for days. Later yesterday they started the last run. Then Downton Abbey will be gone from PBS.

I re-watched Downton Abbey on Amazon a couple of years ago. If you have Prime, it was free. Not sure if it's still there. Ack! I just checked and it says, "Leaving Prime on July 1, 2020." Maybe someone else will have it. I also watched the DA movie, but I think I had to pay for it. Worth it!!!

PBS ran the complete series Downton Abbey four times over ten days with only occasional pledge drive breaks. PBS' and Amazon's air rights end tonight.

HBO MAX is currently airing the Downton Abbey movie.

Grantchester season finale is tonight already?! Seriously? Seems like the season just started. They only do 6 episodes a season? That's ridiculous. I love this show and will miss it.

OMG! I watched Grantchester this morning! So lovely was the moment of Leonard and Mrs. C in the chapel... teared up. Loved that Mrs. C invited Daniel to Will's party.

I watched Grantchester but I miss the other priest, he was the reason I started watching this series.

The same night was the season finale of Beecham House and I remember Babyjaxmom saying it will end on a cliffhanger and I was waiting for this because everything seemed to close up nicely but then a major cliffhanger the last minute of the finale. I can't believe they won't continue the series, if they were sure not to continue they could have had a nice ending, not this major cliffhanger.

I thought the same about Beecham House... I read Babyjaxmom's msg regarding no Season 2... I figured the producers thought they were a shoe-in to be renewed for a Season 2...

I realize this is a TV show... but I was mystified at the utter cluelessness of John Beecham to not think a couple steps ahead regarding how desperate the bad guy is and what he knows about his son... I was stunned that he didn't think his son would be in danger.
