Belle Du Jour (Secret Diary of a Call Girl)

I'm quite looking forward to this. I've read her blog for years and both her books, so will be interested to see what the programme's going to be like.

Not sure about Billie Piper playing Belle, though (am sure many of you men out there will be happy to see her get her kit off!) but I think she'll bring a girl on the street flavour to it more than a Pamela Anderson type would.

Shame she doesn't then really. If I was gonna pay good money to a prostitute I'd at least expect to see the goods!

What's with these starlets playing hookers/strippers and then not even displaying their wares. First Jessica Alba in Sin City and now this. back to the 80s I say when if a leading lady wanted to get anywhere she had to show her norks in a gratuitous sex scene.

Hmm? I'd read that she gets it all off. Full frontal baby!

Anyone see her spouting off a load of pseudo-intellectual crap on Parky the other night?
No-one cares, love! They just want to see your tits and minge!

If it's a scene showing her shagging a client it's hardly gratuitous nudity is it? Realistic yes, gratuitous no.

Why won't you mum let you stay up and watch it

I wasn't expecting much with it being an ITV production buy boy was this bad, from the 'acting' to the poor soft picture. I will not be bothering with it again.

Please fill in this boxes so I can decide whether to catch a repeat.

Do you see Billie's:

[ ] Baps
[ ] Muff
[ ] Arse
[ ] None of the above

None of the above (as far as I could tell from fast forwarding through it). Lots of sex but, as usual, the protagonists went to great pains not to show anything (even Billie in the bath on her own). It always amuses me when, in films and TV, in scenes following a supposed night of passion, the woman always tries to keep her boobs covered with the bedclothes as if the bloke's never seen them before.

I think your being kind to it there!

Some things can be bad that they end up being "funny" or "car crash TV" (no matter how bad it is, you just cant turn away/over), but this did not even have this appeal for me.

Just could not see the point in the show.
Was not funny
Had no drama
Had no sex scenes to shock
Had no point

The only thing it might acheive is break Billie out from gettting offered 'young spunky chav" roles.

The acting was awkward (even Billie's really) and there seems to be no discernible plot other than her seeing clients. And there was no noticeable humour either.
I'm hoping that there's some sort of background storyline coming into effect as it continues.

Pretty much the only thing this had going for it was seeing Billie in sexy clothing and skimpy lingerie ... so I'll probably keep watching.

But when it comes to titillation with some decent acting & plot I'll stick with Californication.

That was disappointing. I was looking forward to that all week. No nude scenes atall.

According to the TV Times "Billie's naked peachy bottom features prominently throughout the series.". So will keep watching. Hopefully next week's episode has a bit more to offer.

The picture was far too soft/fuzzy - looked pretty silly!
