5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifyingly Good, 12 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Pulling - Series 1 [DVD] (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.
