We have been watching many Polish TV shows recently, but our favourite one has been one called Czas Honoru. The English translation is ‘Time of Honor.’ We are currently up to season two.
Czas Honoru starts off in 1941 and is based on World War II in Poland. It mainly centres around five men, all members of the Polish Resistance. They have been specially trained by the English. The first episode is mostly about them being trained, and preparing to go back to Poland.
The Polish Resistance group contains Czesław Konarski, Władek Konarski, Michał Konarski, Bronek Woyciechowski, and Janek Markiewicz. These are the five main characters the show centres around.
Other major characters include, Wanda, who is Bronek’s fiancee. Karol Ryszkowski, who is a Pole that later becomes a German spy, he is also the ex-husband of Wanda. Lena Sajkowska who is Janek’s fiancee, she is also a Jew stuck in the Warsaw ghetto.
Doctor Maria Konarska, she is married to Czesław and is the mother of Michał and Władek, she is in charge of the Warsaw hospital. Czas Honoru also centres around the Germans in Poland.
We were quite upset to find out that when we turned season two on for the first time, the actress who played Wanda had been replaced by another actress. We are still slowly getting used to the New Wanda.
For me personally, the only bad thing about watching Czas Honoru is the fact that we have to wait for Mama and Tata to both be home before we can watch more episodes. So that sometimes, unfortunately, means having to wait long periods of time to watch more episodes. And by long periods of time, I mean more than four days! 🙂
