With a touch of glamour, gutsy humor, and an overwhelming desire to improve their lot in life, four women strive for happiness and fulfillment. In early 1980s England, Steph, Pauline, Nita and Dawn wrestle with the pressures of family, husbands and making ends meet. However, a chance meeting between Steph and Nita is destined to kick-start a transformation for them all as they grasp the opportunity to become Ann Summers (lingerie and sex toy) party organizers.

Actually, I really like this series. Living in the U.K. and being a Brit. they got it right. What it was like and trying to make a go of it. Women where still trying to make a mark in the world and it was very typical what men thought of women making money and being successful in the work-force. Their roles were still keeping house, working outside the house including cleaning for others, shop jobs and low-senior clerical work. (I know, I worked in a bank). I lived quite close to Sheffield then, hence the move to Vancouver. The only thing they forget was the immortal Maggie Thatcher!
I only wish we had another season to follow-up on.
