The Mid-Week TV Show

An easy British comedy

Dear friends, here is a sun-drenched British comedy set in Greece for a break from these angst-ridden days.

The Durells

The first three seasons are now streaming on Amazon Prime.

This comedy-drama is about a British family that moves from England to Corfu, Greece, in hopes of a better life.

At first the cultural shocks and mishaps are hilarious, but The Durells quickly becomes a heartfelt drama centered around the mother, who has to push through a lack of money, new responsibilities and a sense of loneliness on top of the cultural adjustment.
