Last night I finished what was likely the final season of detectorists on Amazon Prime. I can go on and on about how the BBC is so much better than American TV, especially their comedies and this is another show to add to the group. It is about two friends whose hobby is to go metal detecting and the humor is delightfully British and dry. The other bonus of BBC shows is they know how to do a story arc, and they know how to end a show. This is three series, six episodes each and the way the last series ended it really felt like the end of a nice story arc. Check it out if you want some great British comedy in extremely digestible half hour episodes.
Upcoming posts include why every American adaption of great BBC shows is terrible (please refer to the current show Ghosts) and reviews of all the shows I have binged over the pandemic.
