Product Description

Product Description

Three-volume box set containing all six episodes of the Kay Mellor series chronicling the ups and downs of a weekly slimming group. In 'Love Me Slender', Betty Simpson (Alison Steadman) prepares to compete for the Yorkshire Superslimmer 2000 championship after losing five stones - but where is her husband, Douglas, when she needs him? 'Fat Chance' sees bus driver Alan's (Richard Ridings) wedding anniversary plans upset when his wife tells him she no longer loves him and he ends up in hospital. In 'Fat Free', actress Lauren (Gaynor Faye) throws her diet to the wind when she attends a Jewish meal with her family. 'Growing Pains' sees 14-year-old Jamie (James Corden) cracking under the strain of looking after his single parent mother and being bullied at school over his weight problem. In 'Face the Fat', Val (Kathryn Hunt) hires a male escort when she has to attend the launch of her new weekend supplement, and decides to write a feature on the secrets of the slimming world. 'When the Fat Lady Sings' sees Kelly (Ruth Jones) losing all her inhibitions on her hen night when she mixes alcohol with her slimming pills, and following Val's article the media descend to see if she can fit into her wedding dress.

Format: DVD
I purchased "Fat Friends: series 1" because two of the lead actors, James Corden and Ruth Jones wrote and along with Alison Steadman, starred in "Gavin and Stacey" a series I thoroughly enjoyed. This series offers a good mix of comedy and drama that I am sure will please most viewers. The stories have substance and are well written; the characters have depth and reveal their vulnerability as the narrative unfolds. Each episode stands alone as the slimming club members deal with their hopes, failings and emotions. I highly recommend this series and I am looking forward to series two and three. I hope series four; if and when it is released on DVD will be sold as a single season and not as part of a four season group. I think most of us are sick of dealing with this obvious stunt to increase sales at our expense.

Really very funny when it eventually arrived - huge delay with overseas shipper. I have ordered and received 2/3 - not from overseas shipper and am sure they will be just as entertaining.
