Mr Span didn't want to watch it at first because it was "about women", which I chided him for. Then I started complaining about it being well implausible because everyone in the office was Scottish - what are the odds of that?! What weird theme office would be all Scottish? Anyway, imagine my etc when I realised it was set in Scotland!! But they were behaving perfectly normally in every other way so I hadn't realised.
So anyway if you can get past the PC gone mad of it being mainly women and all Scottish, then I recommend it.
I watched the first two of them the other night after an identical conversation with my wife.
I didn't even realise they were all Scottish until you said that. I think I might be borderline not-racist.
It was okay. I haven't mentioned it to anyone else until now because I didn't really think it was particularly good. All very contrived and situations agonisingly engineered to make the wrong party look crazy to colleagues. Add this to the horribly contrived yet entirely predictable ending to the first episode and I am just not its biggest fan I am afraid.
That said, my wife loves it. It must be a womens programme.
