pretty fun
20 June 2005 | by dvdgoofballSee all my reviews

despite myself I kinda like it. It just came out in the U.S., and I think the fanbase here will build over time. Pretty crazy stuff! Someone told me that it was the basis for Desperate Housewives. Is this true? Anyone know?

Anyway you can find the DVD's on Amazon. I don't know what it is about British television it seems to be everywhere lately, and with the low quality of US TV at the moment.

Well

that's why I'm checking these out
