    I love the Call Girl series but I just wanted to point out that she isn’t actually a legal secretary–she just says she is as a cover. The show is about her dealing with being a call girl and trying to keep that a secret from her friends and family by telling lies. It’s a wonderful show…I recommend you watch it 🙂

    Middleman was awesome!! I can’t wait for more.

    Diary of a Call Girl – meh.
    I’ve seen it – and if you don’t believe a show about selling sex and Billie Piper in lingerie can be boring – just watch it.
