Really Good
8 July 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I think the name of this show nearly meant i nearly didn't watch this show, but i'm glad i did! The actors are really good, especially Sarah Smart who is very believable in her portrayal of Jane as a shy and slightly geeky girl. Following her change of lifestyle to become a London bus drive is actually quite funny and dramatic which i think is unusual! Another aspect of this show which i liked was the use of her workplace as well as her home in the storyline. However I think it moved too fast, which means it probably won't have a second season as I'm not sure what story lines could be followed after having Jane marry both Robert and Richard by mistake in the final episode. (?!)
