Okay, so I know it’s totally not Friday, but have you seen Call the Midwife? While I was recovering from dental surgery I finished the first 2 seasons. They. Were. Awesome. Like, Downton Abbey awesome. The first season is FREE if you have Amazon Prime, and I dare you not to be willing to pay for the second season once you have seen it!
It’s about midwives in East London in the 1960’s. East London was notoriously poor, women had no access to birth control, lived in pretty meager conditions, etc. The show follows these women as they give birth–all through the eyes of the midwives who help them.
Let me tell you, Bob, the British have done it again. It is totally worth sitting down to watch if you haven’t already.
Season 3 won’t come out until some time in 2014, so you have plenty of time to catch up.
Let me know what you think,
