Product Description

The Complete Six-Part Season Of The BBC/Sundance Channel Comedy Hit

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.

This show isn't for everyone, no (what is?). It is brilliant, yes. But you might hate it - or, worse, just go "meh" - though probably only if you're expecting it to be something it isn't. That's because its humor - like most humor - isn't for everyone. But, rest assured, this means that if it does hit your funny bone, it *really* hits it, as it doesn't go for the broad "everyman" humor of sitcoms that is so depersonalized (and depersonalizing). Which is frankly sort of a contradiction (or would be, if we weren't all weened on over-broad, over-safe comedy), as this show derives its humor from the absurdity of life in the reality we share. That's where this show shines, by taking the everyday, the downright droll, and mining it for the humor that is there, that each of us goes through, but that we don't necessarily see the "funny" in just as a goldfish doesn't see the water, since, well, it's soaking in it. Or rather, I presume that's the case, as I've never been a goldfish. We're all soaking in the absurdity of life every single day, but Pulling gives us a new perspective, a distance, which allows us to see it for what it is. So sure, in some ways there's darkness to it, but then that's true for life, isn't it? However, to call this show 'dark' is sort of missing the point. So is saying it's anti-this or the antidote-to-that. Because here's what the show is: a unique creation, that stands on its own, and doesn't need to be held up to anything, compare or contrast. Here's also what it is: a show that illustrates not the darkness of life, but rather the humor surrounding even dark things (or the no-things), that exists not only despite the everyday, but because of it.Read more ›

This comedy is hilarious. Don't take my word for it. Pulling Seasons 1 and 2 were nominated for BAFTA Awards. The writing is killer, and the acting is fantastic.

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.

This show is wonderful, intelligent, honest, dark and soda out the nose hilarious. I fell in love with in the first 5 minutes. This is a great show if you are a woman who is looking for something that doesn't shove fairy tale BS and traditional gender roles down your throat. This is the exact opposite. The women are horrible, the men are horrible, EVERYONE is horrible and in the most amusing ways. For the sick and twisted woman in your life.

My husband I enjoyed Catastrophe which is why we thought we might like this one. I wanted to like it, but it's subject matter is a little hard to make funny in my opinion - dead end relationships, jobs and addictions...

Donna, Karen, and Louise are three thirty-somethings all of whom make the dysfunctional Sex and the City characters look like true personality success stories. This is probably one of my favorite British comedies of all time, and I only just recently purchased it. The dynamic the three ladies share, and how their misfortune (however far-outish) is almost always easy to relate with, makes me love this show.

No Morals. No Ethics. No Problem! This show has had my mouth open and me looking at the screen like "Did they really just say that?" on more than one occasion. I have watched this show over and over and I am sure before its all said and done... over again. I own quite a bit of British Comedy and this is near the top. If you like Shameless (UK) or Nighty Night you will not be disappointed with this little gem. If on the other hand Hyacinth Bucket is more your taste then this may offend you. Lewd, Crude, and Alarming are all words I could use to describe it but don't take my word for it, buy it and see for yourself.

It's NOT the "inbetweeners" (good, but very adolescent) or "Peep Show" (my fav) but it is of a similar genre…nuanced and tongue in cheek, a low-key buffet of very empathetic and very flawed characters doing things we may see every day but done here in a way NEVER seen on TV... a great cast of REAL characters, living REAL lives. I haven't been in the UK for quite a few years but this confirms my impression from earlier BritCom viewing that there is NO censorship on British TV (BRILLIANT!!!) The dialogue and situations induce the guilty pleasures and of this type of comic voyeurism... very blunt and harsh…and, very often, brutally sad and howlingly funny…just like life.
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.
