Call the Midwife

(This image is from Amazon--I will probably be buying the actual book)
Have you seen it yet...the show on PBS called Call the Midwife? It aired on our PBS this past weekend but I didn't get to watch it...I recorded it later and got to sit down and watch it last night.

It is one more show worth watching for us. It is based on these memoirs of Jennifer Worth who left a comfortable home to become a nurse and midwife right after WWII...she moved into a convent to work with nuns and other nurses who were already doing the work. There is a housing shortage at that time and people live in ways UN-imagineable to us today. Just so crowded...and such squalor.
In my opinion, PBS has some of the best shows on television...we have been hooked on it forever.  One that was a favorite with both of us is Foyle's War.  We are now re=watching the episodes through Netflix.

I was going to try to list more of what we have watched and/or rewatch...and the list is endless.  We almost always watch Masterpiece Theater or Masterpiece Mystery....we are very seldom disappointed with those shows.  Let alone shows like Red Green...for fun, or The Joy of Painting, Quilting Arts, or Fons and Porter for instruction.

I just wondered, are there shows you always watch...and what are they?
