i’m a big fan of most hbo shows (hooray for true blood!) but i’m especially fond of their latest addition: the no. 1 ladies detective agency. when it comes to tv, i really appreciate set decoration and the way that that helps tell a visual story and this show does not disappoint when it comes to a visual story. i feel like contemporary tv shows (except for mad men) lean on a very similar color palette, so it’s so refreshing to see the vivid colors used in no.1 ladies. the vivid teals, oranges and yellows are a feast for the eyes and a real treat to watch. i’m not entirely sold on the show’s content yet, but it’s such a pretty one to watch that i think it just might win me over. if you have access to hbo on demand i highly recommend the first episode- if only for the beautiful teal color they paint the detective agency. so, so beautiful.
