I love this program!
I just loved every minute of this very entertaining , glamorous, escapist series.
The girls are so beautiful , likable and all different, none are stereotypes. All superb actors. And their costumes, hair and make up are wonderful. Proper sixties glamour!
This isn't as dark as Mad Men, but its not all fluff either, it does touch on, sexism, racism, politics, art, history and the making of `Modern Girls'.
The women in this program are empowered by their own sense of worth and its so refreshing to see that in a TV program!
Admittedly the first few episodes weren't as good as it later gets. It seemed like they had a small budget, which was letting them down. But this seems to change after episode 4 or so, when the sets and locations become much more elaborate. A bigger budget would have put this on level with Mad Men, I think.
All in all, this is a very watchable series, its glamorous, exciting (some times edge of your seat!) There is an innocence to it that seems deliberate and is enjoyable. Its romantic and moving, emotional and it will make you think from time to time. But overall its quite light entertainment.
The 6 main characters are very likable and interesting. And some there are some good badies too!
I loved the little snapshots into American and European history, and the spy storyline. Also how they played around with time in certain episodes.
I just wish that they had had a bigger budget.
Well written, well acted, well..just great entertainment.
I'm hoping for a second season.
