Anyone watching this tonight. I have been waiting for this... not sure why but looks like it will be quite good.

PersonalClown Thu 27-Sep-07 16:24:39

Already programmed into the Sky+ on series link.
I'm organised, me.

mixedmama Thu 27-Sep-07 16:33:54

I only have freeview sad

oh well when i get in i just programme reminders for the night...

look forward to some discussion on this tomorrow then.

I think it sounds vile and stupid - glamourising prostitution.

You can bet your life that Billie Piper or the programme makers would never dream of doing a job like this.

mixedmama Thu 27-Sep-07 16:36:01

No but it willbe interesting I think as isnt it based on a real life call girl.

SmartArse Thu 27-Sep-07 16:36:42

I'm sure you're right Elzabetth, but I shall watch it anyway. Bit of fun and escapism and all that.

MegaLegs Thu 27-Sep-07 16:36:55

Based on Belle de Jour IIRC

mixedmama Thu 27-Sep-07 16:38:29

And who is Belle de Jour anyway?? So naive

MegaLegs Thu 27-Sep-07 16:42:42

call girl blogger

MegaLegs Thu 27-Sep-07 16:44:18

the actual blog didn't have tim eto read - hope it's not inappropriate

Cynthia Payne thought the stories this series is based on are a load of bollocks. It's probably some middle-aged male author's wank fantasy, which he's made a lot of money from because people are really keen to believe because almost everybody loves the idea of happy hookers -

Certainly the bits Payne quotes from sound like they come from a 70s porn mag, not from real life.

Thing about Belle de Jour is, she can write. That's what makes the blog interesting. (disclaimer: this assumes it is a she and not some saddo male journalist, but if that's the case, he can write.)

But that's not going to come over in a TV adaptation, is it? It's just going to end up as slightly classier than average porn. I'm rather sorry that Billie Piper's got involved, because up to now I've thought her choice of roles was really interesting.

mixedmama Thu 27-Sep-07 17:02:37

Would love to hear her "after dinner speeches" hilarious.

lornaloo Thu 27-Sep-07 17:04:12

Yes Im going to watch it. What times it on again? Its itv2 right?

mixedmama Thu 27-Sep-07 17:04:54

10.00 pm... cant remember the channel.

I am knackered, hoping i can stay awake.

marthamoo Thu 27-Sep-07 17:05:54

I think I've got the gist of it from the writhing Billie Piper over there ------->

lornaloo Thu 27-Sep-07 17:06:53

I just have a Davina over there------->

lornaloo Thu 27-Sep-07 17:07:38

10pm good dp will be in bed by then.

Ulysees Thu 27-Sep-07 20:54:56

It's on itv2

I only have an O2 ad over there>>>>>

TinyGang Fri 28-Sep-07 10:55:19

Did you all watch it then?

She was like Bridget Jones' alter ego.

I didn't think it was brilliant tbh, but I still like Billy Piper - good actress.

Flamesparrow Fri 28-Sep-07 10:57:53

I got bored.

The Black Donnellys before it might have potential though

mixedmama Fri 28-Sep-07 10:59:17

It wasnt all that was it. Glad it was only on for half an hour. Not sure if I will watch the next episode, since I assume it will be more of the same.... not sure what i expected tho really.

Twiglett Fri 28-Sep-07 11:00:17

This blog was made up by a journo wasn't it?

Belle never existed apart from in someone's imagination

TinyGang Fri 28-Sep-07 11:00:22

Didn't see that FS - I'll look out for that one next week.

Given the choice last night I wish now I'd watched Mitchell and Webb on at the same time as Call girl.

TinyGang Fri 28-Sep-07 11:01:54

I'm sure I read something about this saying Belle was real and Billy (is it Billie?) had met her but the woman is anonymous, so who knows.
