  1. I like real life stories (The Durrells), and I like greek islands (haven't been to Corfu, though). There's no reason why the plot should end with the family leaving for England before the start of WW2. So, season 4 of the series is good news.

    1. It will end next year with season four because ahead of the war they all separated if I remember correctly (in real life). One of her son went to Egypt and some of them returned to UK before the hell broke out and the continent started bleeding.

  2. I enjoy watching "The Durrells," but all good things must come to an end.

  3. Oh, my poor heart. I am so sad that The Royals got the axe. I do hope it is picked up elsewhere. It is my guilty pleasure show, after all.

    1. We are all hoping Pop will pick it up as it is also owned by Lionsgate, but it does have smaller budgets than E! Some shows did get a new boost after moving to another network. Royals do have a very strong followship but sadly E! never really promoted them much, they prefer their Craptrashians. I did, though, like how it ends with Robbie and Willow getting married, I like them together. And I'm sick of Eleanor using poor Jasper constantly.
