watch it!

great show. i don't get how is it not more popular. Not sure what it is, but i loved every bit of the show, probably because it wasn't you typical chic flick love story. it tastefully humourful, though not what i would call comedy. And surprisingly the corniness of the whole i- am- hopeful- that- the -salmons- survive thing did not get to me. Something we should watch if you're looking for a post movie happy afterfeel.
