Has anyone discovered this?

Very enjoyable.

I have put it on my list. Can you give an idea of what it is about?

I'll have a look later on today.

I thought I might like this, but the fact that it has subtitles put me off.
It's too much hard work to read the TV.

I find no trouble reading subtitles bit some of the spellings are funny cheque/check.

It is a family drama about the lives of a large, extended family and their ordinary issues......old age, finding love, an upset teen, a frustrated bored man and so on. It is set in an Orthodox Jewish community. There is practically no violence or gore.

Oh and the music is lovely.

It sounds my kind of programme. I don’t mind subtitles at all, in fact I find I am having to switch on the function with some programmes because there is so much mumbling and indistinct speech.
