BBC “The Syndicate” “Hazelwood Manor” Series — Passable Antidote For “Downton Abbey” Withdrawal.

You can catch it on YouTube.


We happened to see “The Syndicate — Hazelwood Manor” series on BritishAcorn” (on our Roku) last week. Given that it was a series set in a British manor house we started watching it — and within minutes the sickly Lord of the Manor makes a “Downton Abbey” reference. That was cute.

We are all hooked on it as we were with “Downton“. Already seen 5 of the 6 episodes. We did not know about “The Syndicate” series. We assumed that it was meant to be a manor house program. Well this 6 episode series is, but ‘The Syndicate’ per se works on a larger premise. Each series is set in a different work location, a supermarket, a hospital and now a manor house — the syndicate being a group of workers that win the lottery.

Cute. Watchable. Not Downton or Mr. Selfridge. Some holes in the story line, but quite gripping nonetheless, and easy on the eye.

Does show you what would have happened to Downton 90 years from the last, concluding episode.

A Wedding Haka From New Zealand To Add To The Airport Haka.

Click to access must watch YouTube video of wedding hakka posted Friday, January 22, 2016.


We at this household are addicted to hakas especially those done by New Zealanders. Our YouTube channel on the Roku 3 has ‘Haka’ high up in the search list. I saw this in the U.K. “Daily Mail” — which I read, on my Android tablet, first thing in the morning, with coffee, before getting out of bed. I knew I had to share it with YOU. I guess hakas are going to get commonplace in New Zealand if this goes on. The airport haka to welcome the Rugby World Cup winners was great. This wedding haka is as good. Enjoy.

The Airport Haka. Very powerful, well choreographed and brilliantly executed.

IF you haven’t seen it. I have watched it, with glee, about 6 times.
