The year in lakorns has been a pleasantly surprising year of good lakorns, featuring great actors in many great roles. This doesn’t always happen, sometimes I thank my lucky stars if I get to watch one spectacular lakorn a year. But 2018 production teams and channel elders have really stepped up their game, taking us through various parts of history, inviting us into the lives and homes of characters that have staying power, and a writing, directing and acting team so committed to the storytelling that it leaves us aching long after the credits roll.
