Movies and Television 2016



I am enjoying the last season of Downton Abbey and have always loved that it started in January, giving me something to look forward to in my least favorite month. Looking ahead in 2016, some of my favorite shows are returning (thank you, BBC and PBS) and there are also two books I have read coming out in movie adaptations that I look forward to. It's rare that a movie surpasses a favorite book in my eyes, but you never know.

Me Before You - Movie Release Date June 3rd


The Girl On The Train - Movie Release Date October 7th


There is a pattern to how the new seasons of my favorite British dramas roll out each year on PBS. After Downton Abbey and all the sadness that will come with the finale, there is still much to look forward to.


Call The Midwife - March 29th


Last Tango In Halifax - Early Summer


Poldark - Late Summer


Home Fires - Fall


Both Poldark and Home Fires premiered in 2015, so it would be easy to catch up if you missed them and I recommend both very highly. Also, I have been waiting patiently for two of my all time favorite series to return.


House of Cards - March 4


Outlander - Spring


Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. There is a new PBS show that starts this Sunday after Downton. It's called Mercy something and it's about the Civil War era. EEK! Can't wait!

  2. I agree . . . it will be interesting to see how
    Me Before You
    Girl On The Train
    turn out . . . 9 times out of ten I prefer the book . . .
    Thank goodness we have PBS and BBC to look forward to . . .
    As January brings us some of these cold snowy days . . .

  3. I need to catch up on Home Fires. I missed the first season and would love to be ready to watch season 2. We have very similar taste...I love all the same shows! (I haven't watched the Halifax show...will have to look into that.)

  4. All favorites of mine and you are right about anticipation for the new seasons! I'll have to watch for those movies, too!

  5. OH how I love the new shows:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  6. Are these shows on Netflix or online streaming? We live in the boonies and don't always good when nterner access so we just don't do Netflix. I feel like I miss all these good shows. Sniff sniff

  7. These are a lot of my faves, but I didn't know what dates they were coming out. Will definitely tune into Poldark and Home Fires. We are watching Doc Marten and love every minute of it. Enjoy your Sunday!

  8. Oh there are so many good things to watch and read! I can't wait for The Girl on the Train. I loved the book and am eager to see it adapted to film.

    I need to catch back up on Call the Midwife. I've gotten lax about it.
    I also love Home Fires. Can't wait for the new season to come out.


Thanks for reading!
