“The Durrells In Corfu” & “The Collection” Have Come To An End On PBS — For Now, I Hope.

by Anura Guruge

I have my DISH DVR (i.e., Hopper) to automatically record all new episodes of “The Durrells in Corfu” & “The Collection“.

The Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend, i.e., November 27, 2017, I noticed that I did NOT have any new episodes for either show. I thought that PBS might have opted to skip that weekend.

Then again this weekend. NADA.

So, I went and looked at PBS.org.

They have BOTH ended. Unexpectedly, I would say — especially for “The Collection“.

I hope PBS is not playing ‘games’ because of their budget cuts.

The NEW PBS Masterpiece Theatre “The Collection” Might Not Be Everybody’s Cup Of Tea.

It may be a tad too dark, intense and ‘adult in bits’ for some. Definitely not ‘Downton Abbey‘.

If you like that period, Paris, 1940s photography and some LUSCIOUS 2017 videography with the most vivid reds you are ever likely to see, this will appeal (though there may still be scenes that you might not appreciate).

Given all the time I have spent in Paris (which means that most of the places shown are familiar) and my familiarity with French/Paris history during and after WW II (much of it learnt from the excellent book “Is Paris Burning?“, I found it interesting. All loved the scenes of the American photographer using a Rolleiflex to take black-and-white images.

If you are into this stuff you might want to give it a try.
