Storyline

Caroline Fairchild returns to work as an Editorial Director for Oasis Publishing after spending the last 25 years raising her five children. Her husband, Donald Fairchild works for Gingsberg, also a publishing house. Oasis buys out Ginsberg and now Caroline and Donald are working for the same company. But, Oasis has a rule that doesn't allow married couples to work together. Since Caroline applied for the job under her maiden name Fielding, she decides not to quit her new job. Instead Donald and Caroline must pretend not to know one another in order for them to continue on with their careers. Written by Chessica Moon

Where is Region 1????
24 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong. I can complain about very little about this series. Penelope Keith is wonderful. I have to admit that I prefer Geoffrey Palmer as Donald. Peter Bowles characterization is less bewildered and more condescending, which changes its comic timing. Even so, the series is far better than the vast majority of all the drivel you see on TV. Its portrayal of the publishing industry is suitably sarcastic and wonderfully satirical. Having said that, I rarely award anything a rating of 10.

My biggest complaint is that the DVD is available ONLY for Region 2, so those of us who live in the Western Hemisphere are left in the dark (so to speak).

SOMEBODY PLEASE ISSUE THIS DVD FOR REGION 1. Maybe Shout Factory, or some other company that cares more about authenticity than sales volume.
