Wow....this is smashing!!
3 January 2001 | by (bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most entertaining Tv-series I've ever seen. The storyline is really good: 5 good friends ( all girls) come together when one of them is getting married. They all have their problems to deal with. The character that moved me the most was Karen, a lesbian teacher who struggles with her "coming out". Karen is played by Lesley Manville does a fantastic job....!! Real women is really great!!(:
