If you haven't seen this one - I highly recommend it.
The main character is played by Kate Winslet. She's a detective who lost her son to suicide, and is feeling pressure because of a missing child case that has gone unsolved.
The characters are allowed to look their age, they aren't made up and smoothed over and perfected. Most the characters come across as human and complex. The characters are flawed but portrayed with sympathy.
Truthfully - most lesbians on tv annoy me, they just aren't representative of anyone I know or have met. But the teenage lesbian in this show reminded me of women I've known.
The sets aren't overly clean and perfected. The homes look real. They are filthy, dirty, real homes. The kind of homes that people buy because it's what they can afford, yet, they can't afford to maintain them.
I just can't praise the show enough.
