This is a very catchy little bit of serialized TV. Gail and I liked season one enough to record season two on PBS recently. It picks up a few years after season one it seems and starts out with the same characters. After the second episode the main character leaves, but it clips on with the new person just fine.
The exiting character was played by Anna Maxwell Martin, who I’m starting to see all over the place now, so she must be getting enough new gigs to ditch this indie show.
It’s good TV, not great. Fun to watch with solid characters. The story lines take occasional leaps that left me saying, “Huh?” I enjoyed the history aspect of it though and it’s always good to see strong women characters.
