Ohmylanta! Have you seen Home Fires? No? Drop everything and go watch it. I’ll wait…

Welcome back. Amazing, right?
I mean, okay, so it isn’t a romance. And it’s not a mystery. But it’s a wonderful, amazing, brilliant bit of story telling. The characters go beyond memorable into something like reality. And the whole British historical drama thing…wowza! It’s like a glimpse into 1940. I can’t recommend this show ENOUGH.
Even better, PBS is playing Season 2 right now, so you can binge Season 1 FREE on Amazon Prime, then go watch Season 2. HUZZAH!
The only downside to this show is that there will only be two seasons. A massive mistake, I believe, but unfortunately, they didn’t ask me.
Starring Masterpiece favorites Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey) and Francesca Annis (Reckless) as part of a remarkable group of women living in a small rural village during World War II. Separated from husbands, fathers, sons and brothers for years at a time, they find themselves under extraordinary pressures in a rapidly fragmenting world.
