2 February 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This was about a somewhat aimless English woman who had bad luck with men and jobs who lucked into being an assistant to an American actress diva with an ego problem. In the first episode Freddie loses her job and her boyfriend, and goes on an interview to be a personal assistant as a lark. The other applicant for the job is nervous and Freddie plays on that to send the women running for the door. Freddie is able to keep the job because she stands up to Max's insults and gives them right back to her. Sharp eyed audiences will recognize the young assistant as having played one of Hugh Grant's friends in the movie Four Weddings and A Funeral.
