Stacked is one of the best shows I've seen in ages. It followed real girls with real and recognisable problems, all of whom I felt I actually cared about by the end. The premise - three sisters whose dad runs a Nuts/Zoo type lads mag was relevant and topical. I'd never stopped to question what kind of men are behind these sort of magazines, well beyond imagining the stereotypical sleazebag, but Jamie was a very interesting character and made me wonder whether men who work in the lads mag industry do also have families and how they manage to combine the two. We live in a time where girls are made to feel more insecure than ever before about their appearance and whether they are sexy enough - even pre-teens are aspiring to look like porn stars. Stacked tackled this deftly - each of the sisters had a different reaction to their father's profession from the fourteen year old man- eater Tallulah to Ginny suffering from low self-esteem about her body to lesbian Shona using the magazine as a way to get closer to scantily clad girls. I'd love to see more of Stacked and find out how the story unfolds. It aired in August and I've heard no news of it since then so I assume it won't be continuing but I think this is a real shame - it's one of the few dramas that is both entertaining and thought provoking.
