Acorn TV is back for another new show and finally, I made time to watch its first episode. The show made its debut on its streaming platform or on the Acorn TV add on with Amazon. Let’s chat about some reasons why you may like Harry Wild, and hype it up just because.

The show follows a woman who has just retired from her many years as a professor. Part of her reason being she’s going to write a book, but after years of having purpose and something to do, she’s a bit bereft over what to do with hours of free time. When she’s mugged, her son who also happens to be an inspector, brings her home where his wife has a less than perfect though of her mother-in-law coming. During her stay, she becomes curious for the case her son is working, but this also drives their wedge bigger leading to some self-investigation.
This is the basic premise for Harry Wild, and here are three reasons why you may like it.
REASONS WHY YOU MAY LIKE HARRY WILD
This group of characters should make for a really interesting and dynamic group to get to know. I think I’m going to find the relationship between Harry and Fergus really intriguing and something cool to follow and I’m also hopeful that perhaps Harry can mend some fences a little closer to home. The fact that her son did worry when he thinks something has happened is evidence that he does care, for some reason, the pair of them (mother and son) just cannot talk. Likely there’s a story there.
2: FAMILY DYNAMICS + GOOD MYSTERY
Speaking of there being a story, what I may like most is this family dynamics. But of course, more curious will be the cases. This one is certainly curious, although if episode one is any indication, we do see the murder committed so it’s more a question of the puzzlers finding the baddies.
3: JANE SEYMOUR
One of the well-known British talents, Jane Seymour returns in this new role as Harriet “Harry” Wild in Acorn’s latest. If you like things like The Scarlet Pimpernel or Somewhere in Time, you’ll likely recognize her. She does a good job in this first episode and I quite like seeing her in this type of role.
Additionally there is Amy Huberman, Kevin Ryan and Rohan Nedd who some of us will recognize from Acorn’s Whitstable Pearl.

Note: this one does have adult material. There’s references to sex and the British slang “snog.” There is also some adult language in some of the profanity or statements. There is a scene of violence to open as someone is bludgeoned (the shot cuts away just before the connection) and we see the victim lying in a pool of blood. The show is TV-14.
Sincere thanks to Acorn TV for the chance to screen ‘Harry Wild.’; all opinions are my own.
