In the tradition of THE OFFICE comes the BAFTA-nominated series that critics on both sides of the Atlantic have called the dark side of SEX & THE CITY and the sitcom for people who hated FRIENDS and everything it represented . Series creator Sharon Horgan stars as twenty-something bride-to-be Donna, who decides to ditch her dull but dependable fiancé during a disastrous bachelorette party. But when she moves in with her two best friends sluttish alcoholic schoolteacher Karen (Tanya Franks) and desperately man-hungry Louise (Rebekah Stanton) she plunges head first into the single girl s real world of public drunkenness, shameful promiscuity, crippling guilt and the tantalizing possibilities of new love. Cavan Clerkin co-stars in this BBC cult sensation that has been hailed as one of the most hilariously dark adult comedies of the decade.

It may not have the high (read: moneyed) production values of some of the more lavish American comedies (set in wealthy homes in New York and L.A.) - the world of Pulling is a gritty, realistic world - but this only adds to the brilliance of Pulling and the believability of the characters. I was completely drawn into the drama of their lives, and found myself believing all of their ridiculous, self destructive antics, which is what made it so very, very funny.
Pulling is genius. I can't wait for Season 2 to come out on DVD.
Tanya Franks was perfect in her portrayal as Karen, the unqualified kindergarten teacher who boozes too much and has one-night stand too many. Her abusive tirade at the dry cleaner's left me grimacing in embarrassment! Horgan did a fantastic job both with the humor (what other series can you find Hitler jokes funny?) and with in-depth psychological portrayals of each of these characters. A dark comedy which shows the realistic side of human nature yet, while you're watching it, can't help but mutter to yourself that these characters hit too close to home because these characters are us. Too depressing to find out that this BAFTA award winning series was canceled after its second season.
The principal characters and the whole gang of secondary characters are definitely the great strength of this series. It's hardly a beauty contest, by any means, but a real slice of life, "warts and all", that's most often entirely believable and grimace-inducingly funny (in the style of 'The Office").
Would love to see more from these guys.
