5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifyingly Good
A current high water mark in British comedy.

Difficult to classify and maybe that's why it hasn't done so well. It's far more subtly rendered than the title, the initial premise (three women on the pull, woohoo) or the DVD cover photo would suggest. Certainly not an everyday 'sitcom'. No jokes, punchlines or canned laughter; just the fascinated embarrassment of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pulling review
I loved this series - and decided to buy it for a mate who lives abroad who wouldn't have had a chance to watch it
Before I sent it I decided to watch it again and, second time round, it is still just as funny
My only gripe is the sound quality - it is very difficult to hear the dialogue at times, especially when they are out clubbing
I suspect it is to do...

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't not buy this, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulling - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
One of the many many brilliant British comedies of the last decade or so.

Tanya Franks (Karen) and Paul Keye (Billy) play the best alcaholics on TV. Rebekah Staton is currently in Great Night Out on TV. She plays the most loveable characters, from the slightly insane Louise here, or the spunky smart Kath in Great Night Out. And Sharon Horgan is as dry as they come and infectious - I am talking about her comic acting here; I've never actually met her let alone, .. oh never mind. See her also in Free Agents, with Stephen Mangan.

British sit-coms have come on unvbelievavbley since the old days of the sixties and seventies where the humour was humurous without actually making you laugh.

These girls are laugh out loud funny. You want them all to be your girlfriend just for the comic drama your life would become.

And the support is top notch. Like the wonderfully hopeless Karl, by Cavan Klerkin. And I don't know how to define David Armand's Richard, but you must also see him in How Not To Live Your Life. And Paul Kaye of coruse.

This series is a keeper. Do buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem, 22 Mar 2008
This review is from: Pulling - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
As my title suggests this is a comedy that for some reason very few people know about. Some great lines and cracking characters...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a comedy more of a drama, 12 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulling - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I had read about Sharon Hogan and so thought I would watch,'Pulling'. It is quite a depressing watch about
not so young singletons, trying to meet someone at any cost. It needs to be more funny and less depressing.
It is more a drama than comedy, but yet not enough of a drama. So I would not recommend it myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice but there's much better comedies around, 19 Aug 2008
This review is from: Pulling - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Hi...
Sadly, this was not the hidden gem I'd hoped for (Black books and Sugar Rush cetainly were).

It is realistic and the acting is good. I did watch each episode of series one, looking forward to what would be happening next because each episode finishes with a kind of cliffhanger or crisis point

I found it confusing and frustrating that the exact endings of each episode are not continued into the following episode, but you do soon get the gist of the events and emotions in the characters' lives...

and that's what I found boring....

With the exception of Louise, I didn't like any of the main characters.... so selfish, self-obsessed and closed. But worse, they are rubbish friends.
There are funny moments, but many more sad ones.

It gets 3 stars because it's worth watching on telly, but personally I wouldn't buy the DVD.
