terrible
1 October 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

this is an ad for the rape crisis center. i have nothing wrong with that, i'm all in favour of that. but usually these ads are about thirty seconds long.

this show was two hours.

and it managed to be less interesting than watching a single thirty-second ad 500 times in one sitting. the characters were awful, the direction was unforgivably dire, the writing was a joke and the story frankly went nowhere. just wretched situations for wretched people.

and just to cap it off. i thought the main character was retarded. i mean i thought she was mentally challenged. i was waiting for it to come up in the plot who horrific it is to rape a mentally challenged person and then it dawned on me that she wasn't supposed to be retarded. not only her, but her best friend too, the one who turns on her. terrible performances all round, just awful. watch ads instead.
