not what I thought it would be
12 January 2001 | by timmaukSee all my reviews

I heard that Anton Rodgers(from the classic "Fresh Fields") was in this show and tuned in. He plays a solicitor who meets and falls for a younger woman. His daughter and friends freak over the match. The variest shows tell how they continue to date, avoid pitfalls, and try to cope with his snobby daughter and friends.

All this was handled with realism and taste. You may not agree with a May-December romance, but you really feel for these two and understand what people go through in this situation, plus the characters on this show are FUNNY! So if you see it on your PBS channel, tune in and enjoy.
