Frequently Bought Together
All six episodes of the BBC sitcom about three friends living in South London. When Donna (Sharon Horgan) dumps her dull-as-dishwater fiance, Karl (Cavan Clerkin), just before their wedding, it isn't such a big deal for her. It is for Karl, though, and the heartbreak, injustice and indignity of it all sends him spiralling into depression. With a new-found optimistic outlook on life, Donna moves in with her pals, Karen (Tanya Franks) and Louise (Rebekah Staton), sharing a flat in 'lovely' Penge, pulling men and getting drunk, sharing what should be the most exciting year of their lives. There's still heartbroken Karl to contend with, though. Just because you leave someone at the altar, it doesn't mean you don't care about them...
A sharp and filthy script, and excellent, naturalistic performances, result in levels of toe-curling mortification not seen since 'The Office', or the early films of Mike Leigh. One to watch, if you can bear to...
-- The Independent on Sunday
As the anticipation mounts for the second series of Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly's filthy and funny sitcom, here's another chance to marvel at its darkly droll and downright hilarious first run. It loses nothing on repeat viewing and Horgan, Rebekah Staton and Tanya Franks are a tremendous triumvirate of dysfunctional, deluded and drunk pals navigating life's trickier avenues and alleyways. -- The Guardian
This is a South London 'Bridget Jones' with a keener edge and won't disappoint. -- Marie Claire

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 seeing life (theirs and ours) laid bare. In places the depth of characterisation, quality of acting and sharpness of observation is breathtaking.
If watching the similarly formatted 'Gavin and Stacy' is like being pelted with wet fish and melted vanilla ice-cream then watching this is akin to being sliced up by Heath Ledger's Joker.
Watch any episode at random and if you are not mesmerised then may Basil Fawlty have mercy upon your philistine soul.
So good it hurts.
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.
Apparently this series was penned by Horgan and co-writer Dennis Kelly because she rightfully found that there were no main roles for women in comedy, which to be honest, there aren't. The characterisation of the three main female roles is fantastic; nobody's especially likeable and witty drunk Karen really stands out as the funniest thing in the show. It's very dark, but if that's your kind of thing, it's a great series. I loved it and it's a shame that the BBC axed it after two series and a Christmas special.
The stories are pretty good, but they have insisted they end after the end of the program, I was expecting this to be a carry-on show where we continue from where it ended, but no. Obviously they keep stories going about Karl and Karen, but otherwise this does seem too two-dimensional at times. I was attracted to this by both Tanya and Sharon, but I don't think it's as good as I expected, it's dull at times and sometimes you feel they're spending too much time on one thing. Sharon was much better in Free Agents [DVD]  in my opinion.
There are a couple of interviews on this DVD which makes it good for fans, otherwise it's pretty much bare bones, which is what you'd expect from a 2Entertain DVD.
For me this is no Black Books, and not really worth getting on DVD, I think it's best to rent first and then make the purchase if you like this.

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. Read more
