Tv or Not Tv___Part II__Wherein we secede to Britain
Let me preface this by saying:I`m am overwhelmingly Ignorant of Historical History !!!

As a result, I can be thoroughly entertained by less-than-accurate representations of past events.

Yesterday, several of us had a rousing good time discussing the merits or mediocrity of TV shows in general (Reprints of yesterday’s discussion thread available, for a nominal fee, at the lobby kiosk)

Recommendations were made, insults were hurled. Wives’ generally superior opinions, in the case of Doc Martin, were made public. We managed to hit a sweet 7.2 Nielsen….good job guys

Today, if you’re game, please tell us what BBC production totally blew you away (cheating and outright mis-direction is cheerfully accepted)….here are my choices

Taboo (2017)….I’ve seen this, in its entirety, three times….. if it were the only show I could watch tonight, I would not be disappointed in the least

The Terror (2018 Season One Only)…I am allowed to include this one because all the characters spoke genuine English as opposed to American
