Bad Girls in South Africa - Documentary
Few television dramas of recent years have managed to combine quality and popularity as successfully as Bad Girls. Series two of the women's-prison drama offers essentially more of the same, but the formula is so well honed that it would be churlish to complain. The main characters and storylines are still there, with the relationship that began between Nikki and Helen (Mandana Jones and Simone Lahbib) at the end of the first series brought eloquently and stylishly to centre stage--a result of both superb writing and performance. The show is given fresh impetus by the constant introduction of new characters. The resulting plot lines see the growing influence of the superb Yyvonne, the unhinged prison officer Di and a new wing governor Karen Betts added to the equation, all with explosive results. The mixture of humour and drama is, as ever, played to perfection.
On the DVD: Having set an impressive standard with the DVD release of series one, Bad Girls continues to lead the field for television drama releases. Again the packaging of the four-disc set is handy but extremely stylish and comes with a whole series of extras. The documentary this time follows the cast on a promotional trip to South Africa and there are two galleries of photographs, deleted scenes, production and cast notes and a mass of outtakes that beg the question how they ever actually managed to make one programme, let alone the 13 included here, without the whole cast convulsing with laughter. --Phil UdellSee all Product description

Series 2 is by far the best series of BAD GIRLS. Many viewers/fans claim Series 3 to be far more superior, which it is in some ways, as Series 3 was longer and the stories were much bigger and dramatic.
Series 2 however is the classic BAD GIRLS series. The characters, stories and classic lines are all essential Bad Girls.
What makes this series stand out is the writers captured the exact essence of the show - it had the right balance of drama and humour and was also able to develop many of the characters and the backgrounds, rather than Series 1 which introduced the characters and was more issue led. Series 2 is able to give the audience a better insight into some of the inmates (Shell and Julie J have some brilliant and heart warming storylines, in relation to their lives before entering prison).
Overall a great series with tons of brilliant extras too :D
We know it's Crime Fiction Drama and holds many Emotional Moving moments in Time
However the Production & Acting is so Good that for real Drama Fans its so Gripping to Watch
and See the Storyline Unfold.
