I support PBS/Public Media in America because like many in this country were raised on it. We need this service available to ALL Americans. The 2019 budget does not include funding for public media. It’s a vital and necessary resource to provide quality instructive Television to everyone.

This show is brilliant and having the former “Doctor Who” companion as the lead role is splendid. She was born to play this role.
These blokes return to TV (PBS-TV at 9:00 PM Eastern in the USA) on New Years Day. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have another series/season of mystery and drama to discover. This is a wildly popular show that has taken the world by storm. Arthur Conan Doyle would like this adaptation of his iconic mystery detective series. Let’s see what happens in the premiere tonight.
One of my favorite shows with one of my favorite actors says farewell tonight. It’s the series finale of Mr. Selfridge on PBS. Jeremy Piven is a great actor and has done a great job in this role of the historic and iconic department store magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge. The show airs originally in the UK on ITV.
Tonight is the night in the United States where we say farewell to Downton Abbey. It will be a emotional night for many fans around the country. The notion that a drama about a British aristocratic family from the early 20th century would be wildly popular sounds crazy but here we are. Millions of fans around the world have embraced the Crawley family and their downstairs staff as one of their own. I am an Anglophile so this show has a instant soft spot in my heart.
My favorite characters are Robert, Earl of Grantham and Mr. Carson, his butler. They are two men who are the heart and soul of the show. Both of them are responsible for the world’s in which they command.
I will miss Mrs. Patmore, Daisy, Anna and John Bates along with Edith and Violet. So many of these people have inspired and infuriated at the same time.
Downton Abbey, thank you for providing people around the world some quality family drama that we will treasure forever.
Come 9:00 PM, I will be watching on my local public TV station WTCI in Chattanooga.
I am getting emotional thinking about tomorrow being the final episode of Downton Abbey. I love everything about this series and I am sad to see it go. The Crawley family has been a part of millions of adoring fans around the world. I will be blogging more about the finale from now until tomorrow after it is all said and done.
Tonight we begin our sad farewell to this amazing series. It’s amazing how a British family drama set in the early part of the 20th century has captured the imagination of viewers across the globe. For those of us in the United States we will see it on PBS stations across the country like WTCI here in Chattanooga. I have avoided as many spoilers as possible and I am looking forward to having the final series unfold.
We are just now getting around to watching “The Call The Midwife” Christmas special. This is the greatest show of faith, hope and love on TV. I love how this is about how believers are to be in the community to help it by offering life and grace. Set in post-World War II London this show about midwives and Anglican nuns offering health care and birthing services to families in Poplar a community in the East End. This show is awesome and we need more programs like them on TV. Perhaps less violence and angst on TV would make the world a better place.
