I have to confess, it was a little different watching a show with a relatively humane sense of humor and a low rating on violence. But there was something very good about the first episode of All Creatures Great and Small. Moments of tension still existed. Humor was still there. The stakes felt much smaller, but also more tangible. Plus it was well-shot. Here’s a scene from early in the episode, when the main character makes his way from Glasgow, Scotland to Yorkshire.
The show airs Sunday evenings on PBS. The first season runs about nine episodes (with the last being a Christmas special). The show has already been picked up for a second season.
