With the sleepless nights, unaccomplished tasks, and vegetative state; I have helplessly fallen victim for the following series - hook, line and sinker. Thanks to programs like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime Instant Video, it has given people an option in the enjoyment and access of series and movies alike. On the down-side with the streaming series all in one nice package, once you get started you have to exercise discipline.
Recently I found this gem when browsing through Amazon's Prime Instant Video. This follows the living of Laura, a small town (Lark Rise) girl from poor means, that has gone to live and work for her Aunt who owns and operates Candleford's post office. It is full of great actors who do a fantastic job of drawing you into their different towns and their dilemmas. It is another British dramatic series, adapted y the BBC from Thompson's trilogy (semi-autobiographical novels) depicting the lives of the English countryside around 1940. The first episode aired in January, 2008. The only thing I regret is that I feel the series ended too open-handedly. Meaning, we know change is coming and we want to see the towns through this change. But, I guess all good things have to come to an end eventually. Lark Rise to Candleford on IMDb.com
