'The Durrells in Corfu' Highlights: Season 1 Episode 4

Welcome back to our highlight recaps of The Durrells in Corfu’s first season.

Last time we visited the Durrell clan, Gerry had befriended a lonely convict, Margo tried out a job in the medical field, a broken heart landed Leslie in jail and Sven and Louisa began an awkward courtship dance. All the highlights are detailed here

Looking ahead to episode four, Leslie continues to question his place in his family and the world, Margo’s new job is pleasantly surprising in more ways than one and Louisa’s plan to make Sven jealous backfires. For all the highlights, come this way…

With just less than a month to go before the debut of the final season of The Durrells in Corfu, we have reached the halfway point of our season one highlight recaps. 

When we last visited with the Durrells, various family members were struggling financially, romantically and physically. Fortunately, a small group of locals banded together to help their new neighbors. All the details from the episode two recap can be found here.

In Season 1's third episode, Gerry brings home a stray of another kind, Margo becomes gainfully employed and Louisa and Leslie find themselves at different painful stages of romantic relationships.

'The Durrells in Corfu' Highlights: Season 1 Episode 2

Welcome to our second installment of highlights from The Durrells in Corfu Season 1! 

As you may recall Louisa and her clan had just made the decision to move from England to Corfu in hopes of changing the outlook and prospects for their family. While the sailing was smooth, the adjustment to life on a Mediterranean island paradise was a rude awakening. All the details of from the episode one recap can be found here.

In episode two we find the Durrells settling into their new lives on Corfu. In other words, Louisa struggles to cope with a lack of funds, the very real possibility of malnutrition and a house that is literally crumbling down around her. Meanwhile the Durrell children (who some, including their mother, might consider feckless) are busy getting on with their own lives. That is until a scary accident unites the family once more.

British Actors You Should Know: Russell Tovey

This month our Carmen Croghan has chosen to profile one of those British actors that she's been following so long he sort of feels like family.

At just 37, he's tackled stage, film and television and tried his hand at sci-fi, comedy, thrillers, animation and period pieces always with his trademark vulnerablity. And though Russell Tovey might not be a name that you recognize immediately, you’re sure to have seen him (and his signature “sticky-out” ears) in action.

'Yesterday': A Fanciful Tribute to the Enduring Power of the Beatles' Music

On its opening weekend, I decided to see for myself if the Danny Boyle film Yesterday was as promising as the trailer made it appear. The details regarding a case of very specific mass amnesia in the story should not be examined too seriously or you’re bound to find issues. However, if you go along for the ride in this fanciful tribute to the enduring power of the Beatles’ music, our own Carmen Croghan has a feeling you’ll enjoy it as much as she did. And here’s why.

'Rocketman' Blends Fact with Fantasy for an Entertaining Musical Ride

Rocketman celebrates the career highs and personal lows of pop music legend Elton John, depicting his childhood as piano prodigy Reginald Dwight, his rise to international fame and the plethora of destructive dependencies he developed.

Make no mistake. Rocketman isn’t your run-of-the-mill account of a celebrity’s life. Even the trailer declares that “the only way to tell his story is to live his fantasy." And it's not wrong.
