Over one year of this thread being ALIVE :toot: ...

I'm smiling because I made a mistake! The thread had been going for *two*years... two years of calling out good things rather than focusing on the bad.

And it still lives! I'm off out to a family birthday do tonight and I'm smiling about that :toot: .

It's very rare that I find a TV show that I just absolutely adore. This is just the most perfect thing I've watching in ages. From the way it's shot (it just seems so warm and idyllic), to the locations, to the soundtrack, to the sheer British quirkiness of it but most of all for the characters. I love each and every one of them which is bizarre given I've only watched 8 30 minute episodes but my connection is stronger with them than some of my immediate family. I'd like to think in the future it will be looked back on with the same fondness as something like Fawlty Towers but maybe it's just not mainstream enough. And Toby Jones is utterly magnificent (though that goes without saying).

And both series are on Netflix.


Just wanted to agree with this. I watched every episode in one short burst and it was just really bloody lovely. I remember hearing about it ages ago but totally forgot about it until appeared on Netflix. Hopefully it'll get more attention at some point.
