    The LA Times reviewer says:

    If it interests you at all, I recommend reading the full review. It premiers Sunday on PBS (8 pm Eastern/Pacific)

    From the PBS website:

    I found the first episode and gave it a look. It was a little difficult to pull together recognition of all the characters at first, but by the end of the episode, it was much easier. There wasn't much expository dialogue so you had to figure things out in context and, while it takes more thought, I rather prefer it that way.

    This is evidently a 6-episode series and I look forward to the rest. I'm pretty sure I'll have watched them all before the week is out.

    I only see one in the guide. If they show the rest I will watch them.


    Ps I just saw them listed so the guide info must be wrong.

    It will be aired in the US on PBS over the next six Sundays. It was aired in Britain by the BBC last November-December. It can be "found" on the internet.

    Well, we just finished watching the season finale - one of the few shows we watch what ratings call live+same day - and we agree with the LA Times review quoted in the first post. Season one was "best new show of the fall."

    Had a hard time finding it. Had to use the search function, but I found it and set it to record. Thanx for the tip.
