One of My Favorites

One of my favorite TV shows is a British comedy show. It’s just hilarious. Every single episode I find something to laugh at without it being crude or vulgar. It’s a show you can watch with your parents or grandparents, but it is actually interesting. It’s on Amazon Prime Video, if you have that you can watch it.

The name of it is Doc Martin. It’s just so funny and there isn’t a lot of sex and drama in it. Of course, it is the famous British dry sense of humor. But let me tell you, it had me laughing, my mother laughing, and believe it or not, my father laughing. And my father doesn’t laugh at just anything. Usually he doesn’t stay awake long enough to laugh at something, but for Doc Martin he does.

Even if you’re not sure whether you like British humor or not, I think it’s worth giving it a shot for a few episodes. I can almost guarantee that you’ll fall in love with it.

It’s about a big city surgeon who can no longer be a surgeon and instead becomes a GP in the small seaside town of Portwenn. He’s socially awkward, terrible bedside manner, but excellent doctor. You’d be surprised at the crazy things the villagers get up to and end up calling for the doctor. And there’s a dog. The doctor can’t stand the dog, but the dog loves him and follows him everywhere. I should warn you, they do the medical procedures very graphically. (I’d say realistically, but I have no idea if it’s close to real life medicine practice or not.)

Give it a chance. It might take more than one episode. As my dad says, the more you watch it, the more you like it (and find it hilarious).
