A Lucky Fan Who Saw The Lot
27 March 2007 | by FarthingaleSee all my reviews

Here in Cape Town, we saw the entire season. And I promise you, it was jolly funny! Tim and Annie and Simon and Hadley never stopped sparring, but their relationship and characters evolved over the course of the show, which was great fun to watch.

The supporting cast was also a treat, starting with the always-hilarious Liz Torres as man-crazy Rose, Steve Carell as zany, temperamental chef Yorgo, and Marla Sokoloff as the frustrated teen Gwen. A personal favourite is John O'Hurley as uptight but enamored accountant Robert, who carries a torch for Hadley right to the end.

A very warm, sweet series, I thought.
