    Edit: meant showtime's new SHOW

    Did anybody else see the show?

    I just got finished watching it and it seems a bit overrated. As I was watching it I got the feeling that it was a show that had been seen in the U.K. Am I right? From the accent to the way the show was shot (I can tell the difference) it wasn't very impressive.

    To top it all off, the show was put in the time slot 10:30-11:00 and it went off at 10:52. They just cut off 8 minutes.....They should have seized that time to go deeper into the plot. Only thing I got out of it was that she had a boyfriend who think she's a secretary and her family does to. She had sex with a guy or two (one of which had a farm fantasy). Definately not what I thought the show was like. I ussually like european shows (i love Footballer's Wives:tongue:) because they film a little more than U.S. shows but not sure if it was good enough to make me look forward to the next episode.:confused:

    This was on UK itv2 several months ago. It got huge ratings for the channel & there will be a 2nd series soon. I didnt watch it but it stars Billie Piper who was a schoolgirl popstar several years ago, now a successful actress.

    I like this show.

    I can't believe Billie Piper is so hot. Now I can get rid of her cheesy popstar and Dr Who image, and replace it with the Hannah/Belle character.

    So it was on in the U.K. The actress was a pop star? I've never heard of her.

    I don't get Showtime (can't afford it - I'm lucky to get basic cable...), but I've seen ads for it on the E! network. One of their tag lines I swear was stolen from me! (I've been making this joke for years!) The one for the slogan for call girls:

    It's a business doing pleasure with you! :biggrin1:
