This is an EXCELLENT giveaway, if I do say so myself. Our friends at Acorn.TV are giving away a year-long subscription to their streaming service to three of you, and I absolutely think that what they’ve got on offer is right up your TV-watching street. For example, I watched almost all of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on Acorn in the span of like three weeks. They’ve got LOADS of British, Canadian, and Australian shows, and lots of obscure stuff, too — from your original 1975 Poldark to piles of Poirot (and lots of British shows where people are murdered in cozy villages in general) to a variety of things I didn’t know I needed to watch until right now, like this show where Joanna Lumley goes down the Nile, a reality show simply called The Edwardian Country House (which seems like it was LITERALLY made with me in mind; the description reads, “an Edwardian country house in Scotland is brought back to life in this real-life Upstairs, Downstairs. For three months, one family will live in the manor while another 12 individuals serve them, an immersive experience in the world of social inequality and class distinctions that defined the period between 1905 and 1914″), and something I plan to watch immediately called Hidden Killers of the Victorian Home. Is one of them lead poisoning? How about an angry chambermaid hiding behind a curtain? Check out their televisual wares — I truly think most of Fug Nation will be into most of their offerings. A year-long subscription usually runs $49.99, but y’all, we are giving it to three of you FREEEEEE.
THE TASK: I’m going to be picking our three winners at random, but to keep it fun, please imagine that you wake up tomorrow as the detective in a murder-mystery show (of any ilk, it doesn’t have to be on Acorn). WHO ARE YOU?
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of AcornTV. Open to residents of the United States and Canada only. Thank you!)
