Movie Reviews

Easily the Best Show...EVER!
Kats | Media, Pa United States | 10/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Those who have read my reviews know that I'm not just a harsh critic...I can be down-right vicious.

However...when I love something I really unleash with the praise.

This series is absolutely one of the best television shows ever produced for British and God knows American television. It never talks down to the viewer and keeps you riveted with the intelligent relationships and drama.

People say OZ was the best prison show ever...I politely disagree.

Bad Girls is one of the most intelligent and provacative shows ever produced.

Buy it, you won't be sorry.

PS- They actually treat a lesbian relationship with dignity! Go figure."

"I'm an American who has been in a BBC programming mood lately. Bad Girls was actually recommended to me by Amazon UK after purchasing a few other series.

I wasn't sure what to expect and went in basically knowing nothing about it, except that it was very popular in the UK and a few of the actresses up for parts in Footballers' Wives were initially looking to get into Bad Girls.

Once I popped in the dvd, I was hooked. In one day, I watched ALL of season one. Yes, it is *that* good! Yes, there are lesbians, but the nice thing is that the programme is MUCH deeper than that, and the viewer can actually gain insight into the characters. Sexuality is not the premise for this show.

If you enter the show with certain preconceived notions, you will be surprised. Everyone has a story and it is not as simple as a shag here or there, as Oz was. This is not nearly as dark as Oz, but well written, nonetheless.

The interviews with the cast are a nice bonus as well.

Now if I could only wait the two weeks for my seasons 2 & 3 of Bad Girls to show up from the UK.

For those who are unaware, there are many US dvd players which can play Region 2 (UK) dvds. While Season 2 and later is not yet released in the US, it is available through and they DO ship to the States!"
Bad Girls Makes For Great TV

"I bought this set as a blind buy - I had never heard of the series before. I can not stress enough how great a show this is. The acting is first rate; the storytelling top notch; and characterization some of the best I've seen. Not to give anything away, but there is a character ("Shell" Dockley)that makes Tony Soprano seem like Mother Teresa. If you enjoy topnotch drama please give this series a try. I liked it so much that I bought the rest of the series (six season out so far) from along with a region free DVD Player to watch it with. Again pick this up you will not be disapointed."
Entertainment At It's Very Best

"One Saturday night I started channel surfing and happened to stop on BBC America. I checked the info guide and laughed when I read the synopsis of a show called Bad Girls. There was nothing else on so why not watch a women's prison drama. It was Series 1 episode 3. BBC America was rerunning the first 5 episodes that night so after episode 3 finished I stayed tuned for episode 4 and 5 and I was hooked. BBC America was running the first 5 episodes again on Sunday and I tuned in for episode 1 and 2 that I missed the night before.

After that I hit the internet to find out about this British series that I had never heard of before and found out that in the UK Series 7 was currently running. That's when I checked to see if I could purchase the Series because I couldn't wait to get my fix.

I found that only Series 1 is available in the US. That's when I checked out and found that Series 1-6 is available. I went ahead and purchased Series 1-3 and then also purchased a Region free/code free DVD player to watch them.

I have now finished viewing Series 1-3 and all I can say is that Bad Girls is entertainment at its very best! The acting is superb, the storylines captivating, the dialogue fresh with some of the best lines ever. The drama is riveting with character's that are complex and fascinating.

If you are tired of the one dimensional characters, stale storylines, boring dialogue, and mediocre drama of American television then I highly recommend this Series. You will not be disappointed!

BEWARE: Bad Girls is absolutely addictive....just finished purchasing Series 3-6.
