Acorn TV

I’ve been playing around with getting Acorn TV all semester and finally decided to get it now that I have a few weeks off. Acorn is a streaming service akin to Netflix but specializing in British TV shows with a few others from Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. 

I primarily got it because I wanted to watch Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries and Agatha Raisin (both in a round about way based on books.) 

The episodes of each show run about an hour and a half–called telemovies, according to Wikipedia. 

I’m cautiously excited. The shows have lived up to my expectations so far. Once I’m more than an episode into each I will write a more thorough blog post on each. There are a few other shows that also immediately caught my eye and many are based off of Agatha Christie characters or books which I am looking forward to.

So far, I think, the length might be the biggest drawback as it is challenging to binge watch. But, since there are only 4 episodes for example in Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, it also means getting through all the available content fast. 

The interface also isn’t super friendly. It took me a while to figure out how to search things. I’m hoping I will get used to it quickly. 

Otherwise, some possibility!
