Three comments on this:
- Definitely not in the least bit post-modernist; in many other shows made today, the clichés would have been called out to the audience with a knowing wink. Here, it's like the characters are wearing blinkers and I'm not talking about the horse.
- Leads aren't that bad, but roguish male meets posh uptight female has been done before and better.
- This is definitely a post-watershed show in some respects. Was not expecting buttocks that's for sure.
