No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

Has anyone seen this show yet?  If not you should check it out.  It stars Jill Scott as the detective.  I knew she could sing but she can also act.  The show is set in Botswana, Africa and it's about a woman named Precious Ramotswe (Jill Scott) who's father dies and leaves her a bunch of cows.  Apparently in Botswana owning a bunch of cows makes you very rich.  Precious sells the cows, moves to the city, and opens up a detective agency.  She solves everything from kidnappings to lost dogs, to cheating men, to men eaten by crocodiles.  And she does it all with the help of her feisty secretary and a friend who owns a auto repair shop.  I love the plots and all the characters, especially their accents.  The show makes you want to visit Botswana and become a detective at the same time. It's only on it's second episode so there's still time to get in on the ground floor.  Aires Sundays on HBO.
