Top critical review
worth the penny I paid
on 14 April 2017
I can't even tell my friends I watch it. But I do secretly enjoy it. Mainly for the locations as I used to live in London. And I like to see what the girls wear and which bars they hang out in.
Season 5 is by far the least good of the series so far as wild cards get thrown about. Ollie's friend Oscar and Jamie's unexpected gf Yoko Ono - aka Tara. Lucy proves to be obsessively unpleasant and Spencer is possibly the most deeply unpleasant man on the planet and Ollie's acting is way too good for this unreality series.
Their lives revolve around 'dates' and stirring up trouble which gets incredibly out of hand very quickly.
My hope is that the awful Lucy gets together with filthy Cameron ASAP. As they deserve each other.
Oh and the worst bit of 5 see ties so far was having the cast go to see some random and not very good band (friends of the production team? Or money from the record company). But at least we saw Mark Francis in double denim, sipping beer. But really it's been stressful to watch as the characters become deeply unpleasant and argumentative towards eachother.
I paid a penny for this series and it's about what it is worth because it's clear there is far less 'reality' in it than other series. And it's badly constructed. But - I'll almost definitely be definitely be watching the next series. What can I say? It's my guilty pleasure.
