American Clare Pettengill, newly arrived in Glasgow, starts up a book group in order to make some new friends. The group consists of three unhappy European football wives, a pretentious drug-addict student, a closet-homosexual football enthusiast, and a kind and gentle struggling author in a wheelchair. Each week they meet to read and discuss a new book, which always affects or influences each of the group's lives in some way. Written by
The first season's opening credits show the characters' houses in the order they appear during the book group sessions: Clare, Dirka, Barney, Rab, and Janice; though he had picked the book, Kenny decided to have the group meet at Clare's instead and Fist hadn't picked one during the first season.

Not all British comedies are great, but the seasons are short! So there was ample time to watch all of it and judge it harshly. I only wanted to watch this because one of my favorite characters/actress from Green Wing is in this (Michelle Gomez).
However, this just turned out to be a complete disappointment. There was only 1-2 likable characters, and the plot was overly disappointing. Some scenes were way over drawn. And the "cold hearted bitch" (also known as Wilson' dead girlfriend) from House was the leading character. There was no coherent love lines or interpersonal relationship.
There were a few good lines and scene, but I was sorely disappointed. The writing is haphazard and the characters are randomly underdeveloped. Apparently there are failing shows in ever country, even in England. Sadness abounds. I HATE LIFE sometimes.
