A light-hearted comedy, bonnie English girls, good cast
4 November 2000 | by ladylinda66See all my reviews

Not the best British comedy ever made, however, my partner enjoyed the girls witty sense of humour and I enjoyed the sarcasm against the guys!!! ha ha.

Karl is best seen in Brush Strokes.

Shame the show was bumped here in Australia after a few episodes. Needless to say, we did ring Channel 7 to find out why!
