Who else is watching the show and enjoying it? I think it's great. A lot of the storylines seem really exagerrated but having worked for five years in the Hotel Industry so much of it rings true that I'm willing to grant the slight excesses for the sake of the storyline.
Any other Hotel staff watching? Remind you of your own place? I work in a 200 bedroom 4* in central London, so it's not as large or extravagant as Babylon but a lot of it has that ring of familiarity.
Last nights opener to season 2 for example, we have our rivalries and alliances with he various Hotels in the area, although we've never gone as far as commando missions! We also have the usual interdepartmental rivalries, the eccentric or demanding guests (epecially the ones who are openly having affairs or playing away from home and rope us in to their deceptions), the staff running rings round each other and the various madcap schemes to keep the ship running!
My favourite character is Tanya the maid. One of my only criticisms of the show is that there's less of the rank and file characters, apart from Tanya and Gino everyone is English (more noticebly apart from Ben they're all Caucasian) which doesn't ring true to me from the Hotels I've worked in, and it would have been nice to have seen more characters doing the graft, rather than the ones who are more involved in giving the polished image. That's probably why my favourite episode is S1E5 where the immigration office raid the Housekeeping department.
But that's a small personal quibble and nonetheless I enjoy the show and nearly every episode makes me think "Yep, we've done something as crazy as that too!"
