I wish those people in England would learn the language. And enough with the vowels.
Ha ha...at least their spelling shows where they're from on a forum if they don't say. Well at least narrows it down to Canada, Uk or Australia.
I'm on Season 3 now, still loving it...I'm going to be sad when this binge marathon ends.
I had to look up what Horlick was exactly...seems it's similar to our ovaltine.
Well I learned something new today....I just assumed the nuns were Catholic on "call the midwife" but there were a few things I thought odd but just assumed they did things differently then or in the UK.
Seems these nuns are Anglican!
I've come across that working in the Catholic section. When England split from the Roman Catholic Church, creating the Anglican Church, the Catholic religious orders and institutes became Anglican orders and institutes, usually retaining the same name.
Everything about the nuns seemed Catholic to me in the show but what threw me was the priest who wore the same type of collar Catholic priests do but he asked a midwife on a date to a dance.
Also, later I noticed he was called Reverend and not Father....so 2 clues and then I decided I better look it up.
Yes all very confusing Chrissy, that's why I switch off from it all
If he's a reverend I presume he's a Vicar, they wear the collar and can also marry
I'm in season 5....1960-61....3rd Thalidomide baby delivered..they don't know yet the cause.
The other 2 on the show survived but this one was the worst...couldn't even tell if male or female...baby died.
Have not watched this show in long time...but the woman who plays Chummy...had a comedy called Miranda I really liked. She was funny also.
Well I finished the 5 seasons on netflix. Bought season 6 on Amazon for $16.99 and just finished that and now I'm sad...that was one of the best series Ive watched in awhile.
Any suggestions for something similar? Not Downton Abbey...couldn't get into that.
Well, I decided on something very different. I could never get into "The Walking Dead" but I'm watching it now.
I just skipped season one, read what it was about on Wikipedia and started with season 2 and I'm liking it.
Got past my hurdle of the first few episodes this way...might do this with other series too.
@Chrissy Cross Call The Midwife is still going which is good. I'm not sure what else is out there. Have you watched "The Royals" It's like Dynasty a bit. Though nothing really compares to Dynasty.
No, I haven't seen the Royals...will take a look, thanks.
There has been as much adoration for a series called 'The Crown' on Netflix (as much as the Midwife series)
You could give that a look Chrissy
Thanks Patsy. @Kitty Carmel ... netflix doesn't have The Royals.
I'm liking "The Crown".
Although because English history isn't my strong point I have to look things up.
@Patsy Faye ...in the show it has Prince Andrew's mother wearing a nuns habit at the wedding but reading online I read she wore that at Queen Elizabeth's coronation...what's the truth?
Yes Princess Alice, the Mother of Prince Philip, a tragic figure, I liked her
She was sent to a sanatorium and eventually did charity work and founded a convent of nuns
That's why she wore the nuns habit at her son's wedding
Thanks! Glad I have someone to ask the historical questions.
I'm looking so much up, lol. I just saw that Harriet Walker played Clementine in The Crown and sister Ursula in Call the midwife.
That's good ! Familiar ground for you
I just realized that "The Crown" season 2 is out on Netflix...hope it's as good as the first season.
Came out Dec. 8, don't know how I missed it. I'm a happy camper now...binge watching time again.
Hope the new series is as good
@Chrissy Cross I didn't know if you knew a new season of Call the Midwife has started. 3 episodes have aired. I have Comcast and they are available on demand for free. Not sure what night they air.
I just bought the Christmas episode and 2 episodes for $16.99 on Amazon prime.
I'll get the rest a day after they air....not sure when they air but I think the next one is April 8!
I have direct TV and didn't think to check if I can get it free there....
