Salmon Fishing in the Yemen: To watch or not to watch?

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
"From the director of "Chocolat" and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Slumdog Millionaire" comes an inspirational comedy, "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen". When Britain's leading fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. However, when the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a "good will" story, an unlikely team will have to put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible."- Yahoo SG

Definitely a good show. I would rate it a 3.5/5 stars. It's interesting as you all know,it's quite impossible to make fishing a hobby in a desert country like Yemen unless it's man-made. So this sheik,his hobby is fishing and he happened to be rich enough to build all that lake and try importing salmon from UK! What you should watch out for is a good dose of humour and heavy british accent by Ewan Mcgregor & Emily Blunt.

The scenery of scotland is extremely beautiful with vast mountains and meandering rivers,I do wish that I'm there once again you know. Oh wells. And in this show,they become more than just associates or partners. They 3 became friends who saved each other from each of their personal life-crisis.
