Fry’s Winsome Kingdom

April 8, 2010 | 1 book mentioned

Fans of British comedic polymath and Apple fanboy Stephen Fry might be interested to know that the first season of Kingdom, Fry’s recent three-season British television series is available on Hulu.  (Seasons 2 and; 3 are available on DVD in the US, but Season 1, mystifyingly, is not.)  The series follows the doings of empathetic, small town Norfolk solicitor Peter Kingdom (Fry) and his gently eccentric fellow residents of the seaside town of Market Shipborough (actually Wells-Next-the-Sea). It’s soothing, cozy stuff.
