It's actually really refreshing to see a new series that has straightforward story lines, good characters, and decent acting. Reading other reviews, it may help that I have only a vague idea of what Rob Lowe has done in the past, so have no preconceptions. I like the idea of the American in a very English setting, gives lots of scope, and so far, it seems to be handled well, to be avoiding cliches, and giving some interesting insights. I also like the fact that it seems to just reflect the normal range of people you would come across in this part of the country, and doesn't try to shoehorn a lot of "diversity" in for the sake of ticking boxes. Nobody would think this came from the BBC! Hope to see more of this, both this series and more like it. I am enjoying it.
