Reviews

Product Description

“Happily plays with subjects most comedies wouldn't touch with those giant scientist gloves that go all the way up the arms. Hysterically funny and often heartbreaking.” Graham Linehan

“… it has the cojones to go where other comedy doesn't dare, a darkness and a genuine belly-laugh funniness. It's the funniest thing on telly at the moment by a mile.” The Guardian

When Donna dumps her boring fiancé and moves in with her best friends--Karen, a shag-anything, binge-drinking, primary-school teacher and sex-starved, dreamer Louise--she gears herself up for a full-on single life. But is she ready for this brave new world of serious alcohol consumption, outlandish sexual entanglements and blind confusion?

“… features some of the rudest, truest, cruellest and most unremittingly funny lines ever.” The Observer

Product Description

Superbly written, directed and acted, the BAFTA nominated series takes a long, hard look at sex, love, friendship and the loneliness of having too much fun, living in zone three but with zone one aspirations. Includes all the episodes from the show's first and second series.

5.0 out of 5 stars top girls 1 July 2009
By dobiel
Format:DVD
I loved this series and was very disappointed with the Beeb for dropping it. It's wonderfully funny and wonderfully filthy.
Nearly everyone in the cast is excellent but you have to single out Tanya Franks as Karen... a brilliantly written part but she totally makes it her own - best drunk acting I've ever seen!
The one hour [farewell] special that aired recently was maybe the best of the lot - if you missed it make sure you get the DVD when it's released.
I don't normally bother doing this review thing - but Sharon Horgan and everyone else involved deserve every penny they can make from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inappropriately funny 24 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
This programme didnt get the attention it deserves and it is so so funny. Not a lot of great british comedy going on, but this is class. It is so true to life, not my life thankfully?? The writing in this is close to the bone, and inspired. The main character played by the writer Sharon Horgan is by far the best. I could not stop watching it once I started.

The TV series was fantastic and it's just as funny no matter how many times you play it. Watch this if you are feeling a bit low. I challenge you not to cheer up!.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb - shame on the beeb for dropping it 21 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
*SPOILERS*

Good comedy is worth its weight in gold - let's face it, there's a lot of rubbish around, a lot of which gets commissioned again and again.

Why is why it's so puzzling (not to say infuriating) that when an outstandingly funny, dark and original comedy does come along, it's axed after two series 'to make way for new projects'. Hmmm. Somehow not convinced.

Anyway, back to Pulling. It really is outstanding. There isn't a duff scene, performance or joke, and while the humour is relentless, it treads the very thin line between comedy and tragedy beautifully. There isn't a subject on earth it isn't willing to touch - from domestic violence to killing a cat with a brick, the programme manages to be consistently funny in order to highlight the truly tragic side of life. One of the main characters (who deserves an award for her performance) appears to be constantly drunk or on drugs, and while this is a comic gold mine, her behaviour is portrayed as tragic and irresponsible rather than all good fun.

I also love the relationship between Donna and Karl, which is entirely believable. You can understand why Donna dumped him at the alter, but then you can see exactly why she comes to fall in love with him all over again - and we wince as their insecurities get in the way time after time. The very last episode in series 2 is particularly poignant in this respect.

All in all, a fantastic show, axed in its prime (but at its peak.) It may go beyond the boundaries of taste for some - so if you prefer Last of the Summer Wine, stay well away. But if you like dark, original, superbly acted and wonderfully written comedy, then buy this now.

There is also a sixty minute special to tie up the loose ends, which doesn't appear on this DVD, but which is available to download on I-Tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a cult classic! 11 Aug 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is definitely an under-rated comedy that has not been seen by enough people - all of the cast are excellent, with Donna and Karen absolutely superb and laugh out loud funny. And, I should add that I am a male, not a female, and still find I can relate to the show - mainly because the brand of filthy, irreverent, truism humour is right up my street.

My joy of the programme may also have to do with the fact that I think I'm slightly besotted with Sharon Horgan. Billy (played by the ace Paul Kaye) also provides a great cameo as a hardcore drug abuser and Tanya and Karl are gut-wrenchingly funny when they have their little fling.

This show is a must watch for anyone that appreciates quality sitcoms - it's up there with the best of them in the last 10 years. Highlights include Donna having her kebab stolen and declaring to the police that a tiny piece of her faith in the country has died, as they choose to ignore her claim.

5.0 out of 5 stars mature humour. 22 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
Very funny comedy which will appeal to women of all ages. Given a very poor time slot on the telly so missed by a wider audience. I can't understand why we keep getting repeats of the rubbishy, unfunny This Life shown at peak times, and Pulling is largely ignored by the people responsible for the schedules.
