Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Foyle's War. If you haven't seen the series, you are missing something truly great.

We watched the penultimate episode tonight. We are sad to realize there is only one more to rent (Netflix disc)....though apparently they are now filming new episodes!

The writing, the insights into WWII, the acting, pacing, plots - mesmerizing. One of the best things we've seen in years, if not ever. We've liked Michael Kitchen since his work in Out of Africa and Enchanted April, and he really shines in this series - rarely has an actor communicated so much with so few words!

1. Our PBS station is showing some of the early ones

so it's fun to revisit them.

2. We watched that!

Loved how it showed what everyday life was like during rationing. Wanted to feed Sam our supper every episode.

3. I avoided this for a long time

Because I just didn't want to see another British war series. But I read a review here and gave it a try. I'm so glad I did. This is a wonderful series. Great insight into the average person's life during the war. I second your recommendation.

4. we did too - not only another Brit war series, but another Brit mystery.

This one manages to rise to the top in both Genres.

5. We love it and catch it on OTA broadcasts.

Except for the multi-part episodes, there is really no need to see it in sequence.

Highly recommended.

8. Love this series

When Netflix put it on Instant a couple of months ago I did an unexpected weekend long marathon. I love shows like this where I JUST have to watch the next episode.
