This slight if rather addictive mini-series - in which a brash, working class, conspiracy theory spouting man and a timid, superficial, fashion obsessed woman, through a freak electrical accident, swap bodies, and consequently struggle to come to terms with their new situations - never really, despite its satirical potential, manages to say anything particularly insightful about gender, sexual, class, or other societal roles.
