Love this show!
5 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this show on Hulu and just finished binge watching it. It's by far my favorite television series and I'm waiting with bated breath for series 4 - hopefully there will be one. The casting is impeccable. The quirky characters are a nice mix with the more relatable ones. The Welsh countryside is breathtaking. I wish I had a bench to sit on with the view they have from their bench. The characters have everyday problems that we all share. I shed tears and I laughed and found so much of it that I could relate to. I think if Americans give it a chance they will enjoy it as much as I did. Hats off to Ruth Jones....you're brilliant!
