User Reviews

Funny, clever, suspenseful, and underrated. A must-see!
6 January 2000 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

Penelope Keith is absolutely delicous as Caroline Fielding Fairchild, a woman who wants to return to the publishing world after spending her best years raising her family and taking care of her husband, Donald.

Over the course of the series, we see Caroline and Donald try to keep the secret of their marriage from their co-workers, and the writers continually found original ways to get the characters out of scrapes. Donald's continual refusal of the advances of the lovely Angela Duxbury leads to raised eyebrows and the most comic of complications.

I first saw this series when it was still quite new (I was only about 10 at the time) but it continues to be one of my favourites. As I've gotten older and experienced a bit of the business world, I see just how accurate the series was in portraying the soap opera world of the rat race. If you have a chance to see this hillarious and delightful series, don't miss it!
