Don't miss this one because it's just delightful.
Based on a trilogy by Geral Durrell, it's about a widow and
her quirky family that moves from England to the small Greek
island of Corfu in 1935. The acting is fine, the dialogue is
spiffy, and I guarantee the characters will win you over,
and the story will surprise you and have you chuckling.
I watched the first episode today and I look forward to
seeing the rest. Believe me, this will be one of the best
PBS shows you've ever watched. I want to go read the books
now, after seeing just this one episode.
Louisa, played Keeley Hawes, is a widow with three sons and
one daughter. She's having a hard time corralling her unruly
family, so she sells the house and they move to this island,
hoping to find peace and more family unity. It's about their
adventures there and the Greeks they meet. This is British
entertainment at its best.
