Mma Ramotswe Now on Disk

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is now on disk. We’ve just finished watching the first of two episodes on Disc 1. I rushed here because, believe it or not, my post on Mma Ramotswe is the most viewed on Ghulf Genes: evidently I have been of service to the world concerning the explanation of her title, “Mma.” All told seven episodes have been made.  If the other six are as good as the first we just saw, all fans of this great series, based on the novels of Alexander McCall Smith, will be pleased. What is amazing about the implementation is that we felt as if we’d already seen it—which is to the credit both of the author and of the director/producer. No false notes. Jill Scott plays Mma Precious Ramotswe, Anika Noni Rose is cast as Mma Grace Makutsi, the stellar secretary, and Lucian Msamati plays Rra JLB Matekoni, the garage owner. Bravo!
