Houdini & Doyle, Season One | Episodes 1 - 4 (2016)

Houdini & Doyle

I'm a TV addict. This is no secret. If there is one thing that trumps ordinary TV, it's costume dramas. Of late, networks like NBC, ABC and CBS have tried their hand at it, and in fact, this fall, some of the networks have new period dramas lining their fall schedules. Dramas that will no doubt be talked of here at some point. But today, we're here for a different reason.

Today, I'm happy to talk about Fox's latest miniseries (I think that's what it is?), Houdini & Doyle. If you like shows like Sherlock, Murdoch Mysteries or Rachel McMillan's Bachelor Girls Guide to Murder, then this show might be your cup of tea.

Over on Silver Petticoat, I'm reviewing the first four episodes (because I've not yet watched the latest), and sharing more thoughts about why I like this new show. Read on if you like.

  1. Ah, the mystique,the drama, the costumes. I love watching these old time shows.

    1. As do I! They're always SO much fun. :)

  2. I do like all those things and hadn't heard of this one, but we haven't been watching a whole lot of tv. I'll have to catch this one and see what I think. :)

    1. Hope you enjoy, Tressa! It's lots of fun, and the camaraderie between the leads is what makes it so addicting.

  3. I've been curious about this show, I'm glad to know you liked it! Or at least the first few episodes anyway. I'll have to see about watching it sometime.

    1. You will indeed, Kara. It's lots of fun and if you don't mind the angle it has about magic, it's lots of fun. :)
