I love this show, I have recently found it on KPBS - it is a very nice change from typical American TV fare - it is very well written, and the acting of the main cast, as well as the guest actors, is all top-notch - you quickly love these two women, both admiring them and feeling for the struggles life has thrown at them - they are a charming, feisty duo!
The scenery is breathtaking as they go from place to place, and makes one in America feel like a world traveler -
I hope ITV will change its mind on canceling this series, or that KPBS will pick up the tab to film this show itself -
