Yep 👍 ready looks good

flopsyrabbit1 Tue 31-Jul-18 21:15:38

yep but so reminds me of "cutting it"

LARLARLAND Tue 31-Jul-18 21:23:13

What did she see on the phone?

DaisyChainsForever Tue 31-Jul-18 21:32:41

I'm watching. Not sure what to make of it yet.

Graphista Tue 31-Jul-18 21:40:34

It was a photo of her husband in bed with his pt.

Watching - very similar to cutting it. He was in cutting it too.

flopsyrabbit1 Tue 31-Jul-18 21:40:37

a pic of her DP asleep and a women awake taking a selfie together

Graphista Tue 31-Jul-18 21:44:10

Oh please! So Robson greens character will get the blame? Nobody forced him to sleep with her.

flopsyrabbit1 Tue 31-Jul-18 21:54:44

no RG is planning on being with her,so wants the affair to start

flopsyrabbit1 Tue 31-Jul-18 21:58:09

bit predictable but will stay with it unless something great is on

LARLARLAND Tue 31-Jul-18 22:00:29

Thanks for the replies.

Thought it was a bit slow to get to the point, hopefully the rest of the series will move a bit faster.

Graphista Tue 31-Jul-18 22:07:24

This is my problem with British dramas generally - too slow and too short! Only 6 episodes this one.

The programme makers need to sort this out, American and even Australian are much better.

I enjoyed it well enough and will watch again - the great Polly Walker is eminently watchable as always ... but am I the only one really bored of male infidelity as a plot device?

Flowersonthewall Tue 31-Jul-18 22:14:22

It's cutting it but 20 years on! Very similar..set up!

Middle aged women got a bit of a kicking. Not worth bothering with apparently after a certain age. That misogyny and the overblown characters, and the feeling I have seen it before, a turn off for me.

UrsulaPandress Tue 31-Jul-18 22:49:46

I found it really hard work.

Very disappointed.

I liked it. I love the pace of British dramas, much prefer them to American ones where everything is thrown at you all at once. It helps that the plumber is very handsome. He can take a look at my pipes any time.

The writer also wrote Cutting It but why she decided to do a reboot of her own show is beyond me when the results were so predictable. I don't think I'll bother watching the rest of the series.

The acting in Cutting It was much better - the sisters in this are caricatures. Far too similar a concept too. DP said he thought the behaviour of RG's character was too far-fetched to be believable.

unique1986 Wed 01-Aug-18 12:25:32

I liked it more than I thought I would.

endofthelinefinally Wed 01-Aug-18 12:28:21

I couldn't get into it. DH wanted to watch it but I lost interest.
He always has to ask me who is who and what is going on, so I doubt we will bother next week.grin

LadyDuplo Wed 01-Aug-18 15:40:31

I didn't enjoy it. Slow and predictable and I just couldn't warm to the family.

eternalopt Wed 01-Aug-18 17:18:24

Poor mans cutting it. I agree with others - why reboot your own show! Similar characters, setting and storylines! BBC could've saved a fortune and just shown the re runs.

mydogisthebest Wed 01-Aug-18 18:37:44

I was looking forward to it but didn't enjoy it at all. It was pretty boring and, of course, the guy couldn't stop himself having an affair could he? Pathetic
