Daisy Doesn't
15 December 2005 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

The premise is apparently supposed to be an English person intrigued with American culture who seeks to learn more and assimilate; (Alistar Cook had such a program). This pile of rubbish (as our English friends might say) is nothing but a contrived one-joke insult to the audience.

Daisy, shamelessly stealing the schtick of her former colleague "Ali G", seeks to find humor in asking stupid questions with a straight face to unsuspecting people (and then wildly mugging for the camera). Example: claiming she wants to become "a star" she is shown walking the streets of Hollywood asking passers by if they can "make her a star". The humor in this is severely constrained by the fact that she is being trailed by a camera and sound crew, making her motives obvious (particularly in LA, home to "reality television". We see her squealing and running awkwardly from some pigs on a hog farm in another episode; (wasn't this scene directly lifted from Paris Hilton's "Real Life"?)

Finding interlocutors with strong and difficult to understand accents, and eccentric organizations to make fun of seems to be the general theme of this lamentable failure of an entertainment program. Daisy did not have to come all the way across the Atlantic to find such victims, but the Arquettes themselves are so out of touch with the US and "regular people" ensconced in their Hollywood redoubt that they are at least equally to blame. Daisy does America? Please don't.
