PBS Call the Midwife

BBC has done it yet again, this time with a show that actually had more viewers in the UK then Downton Abbey. I think you women especially will enjoy this show though it's so well done that a lot of men may like it. I thought it was very good.

Anyway, there are only 6 episodes and it just started this week in the U.S. on PBS. The first episode will still be shown a few times this week. It's about a new midwife in England in the 1950s, and it shows the ups and downs of that life as she becomes more wise to the world. Lots of laughs and tears.

Hmm. There is an appeal to male viewers? It seems very targeted to women.

A quality show is for everybody. It's not like they have a quiz about vaginas at the end of it.

If they did, I'd be fine. I did Ob/Gyn for a few months.

Smartass, I was just asking if the content was more soapy, which can be hit or miss with me.

Well, at least you get to see some. I was thinking that you were never going to get the chance.
