Blog: Acorn Television

Blog: Acorn TV
By Pamela James
I had acorn for a long time then we switched to Direct Tv and didn't renew acorn. 

Last weekend we renewed acorn and here are some of movies and series I have been enthralled with.

First one is Crownies and if you like Janet King you will love her in Crownies. This is a marvelous series on many levels. It's pretty much before she became a judge and fills in a lot of backstory. I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

Next up: Agatha Christie's Witness For the Prosecution except this is nothing like previous books or movies. I think the movie is entertaining but I can't help but ask "What would Agatha think of this version?"
I give it a 6 out of 10.

Next came "The Interview." this is a compelling show with the right elements of suspense and drama. You think you know what is happening but do you really know or is it all smoke and mirrors?
8 out of 10 stars.

I revisited Brokenwood Mysteries and I enjoyed it more than ever so it gets a 9 out of 10 stars.

Poirot: I watched a few of these "They came to Bagdad was very enjoyable and as was other episodes. I enjoy Miss Marple and Poirot of course, this receives 10 out of 10.

Midsomer Murder: Of course I love this series no matter who is in charge and can't wait for season 19 which I hear will start soon and I can't wait for my front row seat. 10 out of 10 for the Bantling Boys and The Green Man. All seasons are great and I dearly loved the one about the author they thought was dead. Anyway, this deserves 10 out of 10.

Agatha Raisin: I loved this series before and in fact might've loved it more than when I read the books. I have watched a few of the episodes yesterday while trying to get my blood pressure under control. It did the trick for entertaining me and my BP went down.
This still deserves a 10 out of 10 from me.

Until later,


  1. Acorn is great. I really enjoyed Touching Evil

  2. I was a late discoverer of Midsomer Murder but now I'm quite addicted.
