Hubs and I have a thing about series television shows. We can just never make it through. The commitment is too much. I think we've watched one entire series in our almost 9 years of marriage. We're pressing in on the final season of Larkrise to Candleford though and still going strong. I never read the novel. I probably should have.
I totally understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea, but one of the more thoughtful shows I've watched in a while.
Then again, maybe I just like it because one of the main characters is named Laura.
