Sunday nights, PBS, 8pm eastern time.

Anyone else watching this? I caught it flipping the channels a few weeks ago, totally loving it. Looks like they only made 6 episodes ... hoping it comes back for more seasons.

I watch it because I'm partial to British movies and tv series. I really liked Downton Abbey and Lark Rise to Candleford (in fact I bought that one last Christmas). I'm presently watching (and taping) the new Upstairs/Downstairs, which is very good.

Do you watch Foyle's War?

No, is it good? I do like Copper (BBC America).

I read that Call the Midwife got a second season. I'm hoping Chummy comes back - she's a hoot!

Foyle's War is excellent. It projects the flavor of life in the British countryside during WW-II in the context of a police Inspector's daily experience. It's a welcome departure from the typical American police drama, which I regard as authoritarian pornography for the latent fascist mentality.

Check it out. You might like it.

I watched the first episode with my better half. She really enjoyed it, I thought it was at least better than a lot of the other stuff she watches.

They had a Christmas special on, it was very good. I think it returns to PBS in March or April.

Season one and two of Call The Midwife is on Netflix. I'm just wondering when the third season will be on.

Would you even want to see "puss" in a show called "Call the Midwife?"

hey if the chick is hot.....:dunno:

You know what child birth looks like, right?

There are plenty of videos on YouTube that clarify it for you, if you're curious.

I believe the appeal of Midwife is its total focus on the unadorned reality of life during that era in post-War, economically depressed England and the emphasis on simple human values the plots and performances project.

A similar appeal was projected in the 1950s situation comedy, The Honeymooners, with Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, and Ed Norton. The background in that situation was a rather drab tenement flat occupied by a city bus driver and his wife and devoid of the materialistic accouterment typically seen in contemporary tv situations. There was no designer kitchen in the Kramden's flat, no lavish living room, no "American dream" ranch with garage, lawn, and picket fence. No elevator apartment building with doorman and fashionably dressed neighbors. There was nothing in the background of Ralph and Alice Kramden's very ordinary 1950s working class lifestyle that separated them from the fundamental reality much (most?) of The Honeymooners audience could relate to.

The Midwife is about simple human compassion as it occurs in a simple, unadorned, human reality.

I've seen plenty of childbirth videos and watched the birth of my son in a mirror. In my opinion, its nothing short of a miracle. I also don't have a weak stomach. I'm considering becoming a midwife myself. I want pregnancy and childbirth to go back to its roots, not industrialized and viewed like a disease.
