The filming of this was well done with good montages that made it more interesting visually. There were some funny technical issues with the home DVD release that were in my opinion significant. My newish version of this program caused my DVD player to seize up and freeze. I'm thinking due to a low quality pressing. Stuff like that makes most people-myself included- not pursue watching the other discs. I've never seen such a serious technical issue before and I've watched hundreds of things including DVD's that are quite old-relatively speaking. The lead actress is strong but the rest of them are perhaps just not given much to demonstrate their acting skills adequately and as a result the show suffers from a certain amount of blandness despite the clever use of artsy colorful montages. I thought it was 'not bad' but could have been better-maybe not hugely better-but it could have had more humor-there wasn't much humor in it which rendered it kind of astringent viewing at times.
