It's no longer true, if it ever was, that British TV is better than American. But this show would be ruined in America because we just wouldn't tolerate all the ugly people. Of course, we have just as many ugly people, but we do not let them on TV. This show celebrates the British right to be unattractive yet still have an active romantic life. No one in this show is attractive, not the women, the men, not even the scenery (making London as ugly as The Shield made LA ugly. Great! It IS ugly!). The men, the men are all trolls, I'm sure meant to be horrible in every way and a typical depiction is the fiancé washing his privates in the first episode. But the women. My goodness, it's wonderful how unpleasant they not only behave, but look as well. Real life low, low standards. Brilliant, unrelenting ugliness.
