Great SDoaCG S1 review

I've seen a bunch of small reviews of the US release of S1 of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, but while most did praise Billie, they were small snippets and nothing really worth repeating. But I just read a great review that captured probably my favorite thing about the show, including the part Billie plays in making it work so well.
The charm of Secret Diary of a Call Girl comes from Piper's asides to the audience. The constant fracturing the fourth wall to directly address the viewer with an explanation -- or just a wry look -- elevates the viewing experience from voyeurism to participation. These are brilliantly done, and Piper's delivery is spot on.
Those were some of my favorites moments in the series, and Billie's delivery -- as stated -- is just spot-on, utterly perfect. Sometimes, just a smile, a raised eyebrow in our direction was enough to send me into fits of giggles. Just awesome. Sigh, I hate that I have to wait until next week to buy this, but soon!!!


Read the full review.

I know I'm a posting fiend today. This should be it, I swear.
