When I first read about this show that was about to appear on channel 4, I really did not think much about it. I wouldn't have even watched the first episode had it not been for complete lack of anything else decent on the tv to watch. I am now so glad that tv is so bad on the whole.
This tv show was a delight from the start to the end of its second series. None of the characters are very likable but this added to the show's appeal for me. The main character claire is a prime example of this where she is akward most of the time and even depressed but the chracters played well off each other. The fact that the show was full of scottish people, apart from claire, also helped as I am scottish and there are not too many great tv shows st in our country. I was gutted when the show never got a third series but the first two are excellent pieces of television.
