Audience Reviews for Call the Midwife: Season 8

    I've been watching this show for months now. I like it , but , I wish there a little more focus on the babies , and less on the midwives . Having said that I can't wait to see what happens next to the little Chinese girl. This series reminds me a lot of those Christian shows from the seventies I watched when I was a kid . Shows like " Little House on Prairie " and " The Waltons." I didn't know they made these kinds of shows with a life lesson at every episode. I think I like it.

    Season 8 was horrific. I used to love the show when it was based upon Jenny Lee's true memoirs, but season 8 descended into pure social justice swill. It showed midwives forcibly removed elderly patients from their homes in the name of the law and helping young girls to leave their families by offering them government welfare. To make it worse, the season focused heavily on the horrors of abortion, only to come to the conclusion, in the last 5 minutes of the final episode, that the act of murdering babies and destroying lives would somehow be made better if it were legalized by the government. And it even showed the abortionist/murderess in a forgiving light. I'm disgusted. Never watching the show again.
