Once Upon a Television Program

Another list of lovelies is here for my darling readers, this time of television programs. Please enjoy!

1. Sherlock
Written by Doctor Who's Steven Moffat, this BBC modern-day remake is a six-episode must see. Starring Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and Benedict Cumberpatch (Star Trek, Amazing Grace), Sherlock is based off actual Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories.

2. Downton Abbey
This BBC drama features Maggie Smith and Dan Stevens, revolving around a wealthy British family dealing with the changes that occur from pre-WWI to the war itself to the Roaring Twenties. It contains drama, love, heartbreak, and treachery- a must-see.

3. HGTV Star
This Home and Garden reality show premiers each summer hosted by Color Splash's David Bromsted. It's first episode aired two weeks ago. Formerly Design Star, the show brings in ten promising designers and puts their skills to the test.

4. Elementary
It's the American Sherlock, with Holmes a recovering addict and Watson (Lucy Liu) his sober companion. Located in New York, Sherlock assists the NYPD, takes revenge for his murdered lover, and battles his nemesis, Moriarty.

5. The Mentalist
A different sort of cop show, in which former fake-psychic Patrick Jane had resumed consulting work with the CBI. He assists in- and always solves- homicide cases, all the while obsessing over serial killer Red John, who killed his wife and daughter.

6. Call the Midwife
Call the Midwife is a new BBC program, it's second season coming out in a few weeks. It shows the life of midwife Jenny Lee, who works along midwives and nuns in the 1950's East End of London. She deals with poverty, danger, and love. The series is based off of an actual midwife's diaries.
