I've seen the first three. It's a very watchable show. Great cast. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the will-they-won't-they stuff with Ruth and Sam, it just doesn't feel right.

All of them by the looks of it, I'm on the last episode now. What's annoying is that that it does that Netflix thing of being too languid with the pacing, and then when they set up dramatic cliffhangers at the end of episodes they rarely pay them off until ages later. Some of the character stuff is so subtle that it rewards intensive continuous viewing, but then the episodes are structured in a way that often negates that carefully built momentum. It's a bit weird

What is the deal with the nudity on the show, obviously I don't object, but how exactly does it square with the overall tone of female empowerment and stereotype busting that the show loudly signals? It has rarely felt strictly necessary, maybe a sex positive note is the intended one? Just looks like beautiful women needlessly getting their kit off half the time. I don't want to think that it's a cynical thing to sell the show, but maybe it is? I am genuinely a bit baffled by it

I've only seen the first one but did enjoy it a lot, though I've the same issue with the Will They / Won't They thing, too many other shows have done it and there's just no need when there's so many other interesting things they can do with the characters.

I think it’s a feminism thing - body proud etc and I’m all bloody for it

Yeah that's definitely what I think it all is, a show about living and working in feminine bodies not shying away from the actuality of that body

Haven't watched the new season yet, love the show though. Just popping in to say I enjoy the word "languid" and appreciate any usage of it.

Loved it again. The lass playing the Wolf one was dynamite, I thought.

Glad that Ruth and Blokey didn't end up together.

I found it odd that they made such a big deal about Ruth getting back from her big audition to perform with Sheila at the AIDS benefit and then when she didn't it was just handwaved away with one line of dialog in the following episode.

Geena Davis is looking good for her age.

Me and Mrs Tooth binged this yesterday. Really enjoyed it but I agree there did seem to be a lot of plot threads set up in this run that ultimately went unexplored. Maybe trying to buck the old Netflix curse of "three seasons max then you're out on your arse" by carrying a lot of storylines into Season 4?

This is show is funny because it's not that funny, kind of boring at points, some of the acting is really bad (e.g. Kate Nash), but I keep watching it. I fancy all of the women and want to hang around with them as much as possible, like a secret surrogate member of the gang. I even love Maron in it, even though his acting skills are shown up occasionally.

Strange, enjoyable show.
