Product Description

Product Description

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...

Review

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

Format: DVD
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 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.

I am so glad that this laugh out loud sitcom has been given a dvd release. It first aired on BBC3 where it went by largely unnoticed (certainly by me) but I see the few fans it gathered really loved it. As I type it is currently getting it's first BBC2 showing and seems to be getting overlooked once more. A real shame. It amazes me that crap like Two Pints Of Lager gets recommisioned again and again and has a supposedly huge youth following when it's shows like this that really reflect todays singleton life styles, for better or worse! Not since Game On has a sitcom been so real and so near the knuckle funny. A truimph for writer and performer Sharon Horgan. If you want a good laugh and a show you can relate to, whether you want to or not, then this is the dvd for you

"Just because it tastes nice doesn't mean it's right. " Well in this case it does!!! The brutal observations about slaggy binge drinking men and women is the funniest thing Ive seen on telly in years. Karen the boozed up primary teacher really is comic gold!!!! watch it its great.

An hilariously funny, brilliantly performed and near-the-knuckle slice of life for anyone who's been in a long-term relationship and wondered about the grass being greener. In my humble, writer/star Sharon Horgan's a genius - yet the show was criminally overlooked on first showing on Beeb 3. It certainly knocks infantile, repetitive bilge like the inexplicably popular Little Britain into touch. Well worth your time.

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.

By SilentSinger TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Oct. 2009
Format: DVD
This series, first broadcast on BBC3 in 2006 stars co-writer Sharon Horgan as Donna, a woman on the cusp of marriage and hitting thirty. Unhappy with safe but boring fiancé Carl, Donna dumps him and decides to try life as a singleton by moving back in with friends Louise, a sex-starved naïve waitress and Karen, a man-eating alcoholic primary school teacher. Throughout the series Donna finds herself in a variety of situations with and without her friends and ponders `is the grass really greener on the other side?'

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.

As my title suggests this is a comedy that for some reason very few people know about. Some great lines and cracking characters...

I've been thinking about reviewing this for a few days now, after seeing it, and I was perplexed about what to say about this comedy from relatively new Sharon Horgan - about Donna, a pretty 30 something woman trying to find the right person to spend her life with. She has Karl, but he's a bit loopy - and she has her mates like crazy Karen who's meant to be teaching pre-school kids, and pretty Louise, who's a bit lost.

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] [2008] 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.
