We know that we cover a good many excellent British shows in America and one of the questions that we often get as a response to that is rather simple: Where is the right place to watch these shows in the US? It’s a testament to the quality of British television and also some of the confusion that comes with so many of them scattering across various networks. Some end up on PBS whereas others air everywhere from BBC America to Amazon and beyond.
In the case of The Good Karma Hospital, you are going to be able to check out both the first and second season (which recently premiered in America) over on the streaming site Acorn.tv. Acorn offers a free trial if you want to check out this show in addition to some of the other programming that they have to offer.
What’s to love about this show? In some ways, it feels a little bit like Private Practice, ABC’s previous Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, with a little bit more of an international flair. There is a lot of fun to be had with the show courtesy of some of the relationships and the overall lighthearted tone; yet, there are still some serious medical cases that are happening as these characters look to extend a little bit of good karma towards their patients, some of whom are in dire need. (If you want more of a British-TV comparison, think in terms of The Durrells meets Call the Midwife.)
The Good Karma Hospital is slightly ahead of the American airings of the show in Great Britain, but for the most part that shouldn’t be considered a shock. It often happens with many British shows; by and large, we’re just happy that the divide is not even larger and that American viewers are not stuck waiting for a super-long period of time like they are with Victoria or Poldark.
