Ok, so I didn't know anything about this show , saw it on offer and thought I'd give it a good as other reviews mentioned it was like some other shows I like. I was a bit apprehensive, thinking this is gonna be some trying to be too cool gay show, the sort of thing that is normally cringe-worthy. But thankfully it turned out to be brilliant. It was so good I ended up staying up far too long to watch the whole series in one night.
If you like This Life, Attachments, The L Word and want a show that is funny, touching, cool and fairly realistic - this is the one for you.
The characters are brill - varied and not stereotyped. Excellent acting all around, especially from main character Frankie. Ok, so they basically picked the character of Shane up from the L Word and put her into another show, blonde and with an English accent, but when something isn't broke - don't fix it. Saying that, the characters have much more depth and the story line will keep you transfixed for the whole series.
I totally recommend this, despite my initial misgivings and can't wait for the 2nd series, which was recently confirmed by the Beeb.
