Series: The Book Group
A British television series about a young author named Claire who moves to Scotland. In an effort to make friends, Claire starts a book club. The series follows the unusual group through their lives, which range from the mundane to the bizarre, as they discuss their books (and, of course, its relationship to their own lives).

This TV show provides examples of:

  • British Brevity: Two seasons of six episodes, each a bit over twenty minutes.
  • The Ditz: Many of the members of the book group, especially in the first episode where they read The Road and one character says that characters loves Mexico, as evidenced by the praise given to Chicago.
  • Funny Foreigner: Claire is bewildered by her new European friends and British customs. They see her the same way, to some extent.
  • Kavorka Man: Every female in the series is drawn to Kenny, who is the best guy of the bunch but is by no means the Adonis they imagine.
