Carved out time today to watch the first episode of this series on HBO.  I don’t know how close it follows the book as I have not yet read the series but I really enjoyed it.  I thought Jill Scott did an amazing job with her performance and I just set the DVR to tape the second. 

It is wonderful when books are the basis for small or big screen productions, hopefully it ensures the future for authors and not just screenplay writers.  In my case, I was not sure about the books when I saw them.  I kept picking them up but they never really spoke to me, even with all of praise. But now I am going to start to read them as I am interested in the adaptation of these to the small screen.

What did everyone else think?  What about those of you few million that have read the books?  Bravo Andrew McCall Smith and thanks HBO.

Enjoy
