This was a nice break from all the fast-paced action-y modern detective shows. I was surprised at the amount of humor.

Having read the Andrew McCall Smith novels, I was disappointed in this series. Jill Scott was cute, but to me was miscast. Her character is not the same as the kind, patient and wise Mma Ramotswe of the books. The addition of the gay hairdresser didn't add anything and made the production seem like a Hollywood formula.
