Loving Lately: Call the Midwife

After watching all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey in an embarrassingly short amount of time, there was a British drama sized hole left in my heart.

Luckily, I stumbled upon the first season of Call the Midwife on Netflix and all was right with the world again. I love that there is such substance to this show, unlike the reality shows that are contributing to the decline of American TV. Don’t get me wrong, I have several guilty pleasures that I never miss (Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Braxton Family Values, Love and Hip Hop…I know, I know).

Call the Midwife

The show is  based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth and is set London in the late 1950s. It follows the journey of several  midwives and the women of the community. It’s gritty, raw, funny and heart warming all at once. I love the growth of the characters as they experience life’s cruelty and joys for the first time.

PBS.com has full episodes for season 2. It’s worth it.
