I like what I saw  8) - except  for the one officer being... well, a class conscious commissioned officer of the times...   >:(

Actually I appreciated the acting in that too.   :)

Too bad it isn't available here - I might actually watch TV for something like that.   :o 

Gracias,

Adam,

Is the show scheduled to be available for on-line viewing too? If so, Glenn could use "Expat Shield" as a proxy server for stateside access.

It will probably be uploaded to bbc i-player for a week or so after it's shown. If you can fool it into thinking you're in the UK it should hopefully be viewable.

I know for certain http://www.expatshield.com/ works from both the U.S. and Korea. It is free so no pesky charges either.  ;)
