It is good isn't it

Did you watch her last two shows? They were great too. I'm going to watch this on plus 1

Thomcat Tue 14-Oct-08 22:27:11

I love her shows.
And am massively interested in the whole Japenese culture and geisha thing.

gigglewitch Tue 14-Oct-08 22:28:01

Will go and put it on - prob on +1 as i've probably missed half of it now...

goog grief look at that outfit shock

gigglewitch Tue 14-Oct-08 22:35:45

blush meant good

Carmenere Tue 14-Oct-08 22:36:13

She looks rough as a geisha though, to be honest, doesn't she?

ClaireDeLoon Tue 14-Oct-08 22:36:13

shock such a pretty girl and yet she looks like a man in drag in that outfit!

Thomcat Tue 14-Oct-08 22:36:19

Amazing, fascinating.

gigglewitch Tue 14-Oct-08 22:38:31

agree CdeL
Stop being diplomatic TC

LOL! The western face wasn't made for the geisha look was it. Her nose looks so funny.

I love that unpainted bit at the back of the neck and LOL at the guys interpretation of what it might actually mean!

gigglewitch Tue 14-Oct-08 22:40:34

at least she doesn't think she looks gorgeous wink

Thomcat Tue 14-Oct-08 22:40:46

LOL, at angry oversized geisha monster!

geraldinetheluckygoat Tue 14-Oct-08 22:44:20

Im loving this too, havent seen any of the others but wish I had.
the pillows look hellish

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 14-Oct-08 22:52:23

My cousin is doing Japanese studies at cambridge, which includes a year in Japan, I am very jealous it seems fascinating.

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 14-Oct-08 22:53:03

geraldine they are available online, the free love one was rather odd.

geraldinetheluckygoat Tue 14-Oct-08 22:54:35

ooooh Might have to look them up am intregued...

Where exaclty can you see them online? I can only find Extreme Wife on the CH4 website...
(Didn't help that I was looking for GALE Porter for about 5 mins LOL!)

If you click on extreme wife the others are on the same page, they seem to have messed up labelling them though.

I liked the Geisha one - we went to Japan on honeymoon. We met the Canadian guy that she was talking to as he gives walking tours of the Geisha district. His bar is very nice

Did anyone see Dawn Porter's previous series - Dawn Gets A Baby was very good. I'm also looking forward to the Mormon one coming up

sherbetdipdab Fri 17-Oct-08 15:56:32

I am really keen to see the polygamy one, I'm reading Escape just now by Carolyn Jessop who was one of 7 wives to an FLDS member and its fascinating. They don't often speak out so will be interesting to see what Dawn finds out.

sherbetdipdab Fri 17-Oct-08 15:58:27

I saw her series on BBC3, Dawn Gets a Baby was very good, the one where she tried to find a man was funny, the guy couldn't wait to leave and she didn't fancy him at all.

I think she tries a bit too hard to be the female Louis Theroux.
