I watched this when it was broadcast on BBC in the UK and absolutely loved it; it's funny, witty, insightful and often extremely near the edge. If only politics were like this.
Everyone should see this; everyone should learn something about the reality of politics behind the scenes. But what makes this special is the conflict with that reality and the principles and vision that the amazing Mrs. Pritchard got into office.
This is politcs for real people - we would all want the purple alliance to win the next election if only it existed. Especially in the inevitable run-up to the next general election, I wish the BBC would repeat this. But, failing this, I can now watch it when I want.
