Follows a track doctor and former driver, his former rival and owner of the track, owner's young sister who has a crush on the doctor, a photographer, bar owner and other characters who work and mingle at the local auto race track.
An unemployed sports journalist is hired by a struggling women's magazine, Rumours, alongside a strong-willed, slightly neurotic, dreamer. The tension between the two new co-editors builds and so does the attraction.
Well done, would like to see a full length movie like this.
This "movie" (actually series) is well done and the cast is quite good. I love the "Queen of Swords" herself. You have to be a real movie fan by which I mean you go to the movies to be entertained not to review everyday realism. For an action, adventure fan this is a top one to see. I am setting my satellite recorder to record it every day until it goes off the air. Would like to see a full length movie done with this material and actors. Movies like this don't win academy awards as the people doing the awards do not have real life exposure but instead live in the world of make-believe. Those that live in the real world appreciate make-believe movies. I am completely entertained by movies like the "Mask of Zorro" and understand that the majority of the activity is really not very close to reality; but I have that all day so I don't go to the movies to see "reality". I am completely wrapped up in the "Queen of Swords" and love every minute.
