Again, why was this show axed? It is fantastic!
20 January 2007 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

I love this show, I have recently found it on KPBS - it is a very nice change from typical American TV fare - it is very well written, and the acting of the main cast, as well as the guest actors, is all top-notch

  • you quickly love these two women, both admiring them and feeling for


the struggles life has thrown at them - they are a charming, feisty duo!

The scenery is breathtaking as they go from place to place, and makes one in America feel like a world traveler -

I hope ITV will change its mind on canceling this series, or that KPBS will pick up the tab to film this show itself -
