Very few TV dramas really ever convey the mess of real peoples' love lives but this certainly tries very hard and was worth watching.
I have to admit I originally only watched it because it was filmed in the "new town" of Telford, England - a bizarre mix of the old industrial towns that were the origins of our modern world and a newly built centre of advanced corporate blandness.
