An adaptation of Flora Thompson's autobiographical novel "Lark Rise To Candleford", set in 19 century Oxfordshire, in which a young girl moves to the local market town to begin an apprenticeship as a postmistress.
It seems that my parents love this show and every time I visit them they put this melodramatic garbage on.
It's horrible. The swelling music to denote when I'm supposed to be emotionally invested. The just plain banal writing. The tired plots that seem to be made by a 15 year old girl who watches too much reality TV. It's all just trite.
With the glut of absolutely great shows being produced on Amazon and Netflix I can't see why anyone with any modicum of taste would bother to watch more than five minutes of this offal. It's been made for the lowest common denominator of the mouth-breathers among us.
Some of the actors in it have been good in other things. I guess that's about the best I can say about it.
Stay away unless you want to watch people being incredibly serious in a show that tries too hard to be something that it's not.
