The story of Shell, a girl who lives with her father Pete in a remote gas station in the Scottish Highlands, in their struggle against the elements and the impossible love they feel during the last winter that she will be in that place.
Admittedly I first began to watch this because I had heard of David Paisley, who plays Ryan, being the gorgeous gay guy in it..And it's true, he is even if his storyline initially reminds one of "Queer as Folk".
Nevertheless the show now maintains my interest for all the characters. Lex and her lovely past is great. I enjoy Sandra more as we get to see how she does actually care about people besides herself..The various other stories all maintain interst to me to some degree or another (none bore me) and there's actually quite a few amusing moments to be had. In addition there's a great soundtrack, allowing you to play "name that tune" as the show goes along. All in all it is, so far, turning out to be a very enjoyable show, well worth catching if you can.
