Why you should watch Lingerie
Now that 11 of the 13 episodes from Season One have aired, it is time to review what makes Lingerie compelling. My husband and I have enjoyed every episode and love to watch it air on Friday nights for the following reasons: Lingerie was conceived as a serial, following the professional and personal life of Lacey Summers and her friends. Lacey's "open" relationship with photographer boyfriend Jason parallels her openness in showing her edgy lingerie creations to potential rivals. In an effort to be noticed, she draws some serious attention and life complications. Fireman Rick (played by the gorgeous bodybuilder and underwear model Chris Smits) defo takes advantage of the open personal relationship she has with Jason; likewise a fashion competitor takes to Lacey's designs, repurposing them as his own.
The plot develops slowly, week-to-week. There are no heavies on the show: just a collection of friends who provide humor and incredibly sexy interludes to the main plot.
Lingerie is also funny. Lacey's brother Cody and his roommate Russ are hilarious in their attempts to land nookie only to be snookered into love crushes.... Matthew Fitzgerald is sooooo good at playing Lothario Cody and tag teams convincingly with Jonathan Steen as adorable meat-heads out to score. Their inner dialogue is hilarious. Both have cute butts too! The series is building toward Lacey's career-launching fashion show, with little intrigue concerning who is Lacey's financier and who will Lacey chose as her love.
The high quality production, realistic sets, gorgeous actors and actresses, mature transitions and witty dialogue captivate our attention and give my husband and I romantic ideas...... rawr! Thank you John Quinn for producing another great show.... especially moving your work toward the development of serial, as opposed to episodic television with self-contained stories and a pool of guest cast (i.e. Passion Cove and Sin City Diaries). With Lingerie (and Forbidden Science) you have moved the late-night genre to compete and outclass many of the primetime, network based shows.
Excellent casting has always set John's shows apart from other Cinemax fare. Kudos especially for the four major leads that drive Lingerie. Jennifer Korbin is beautiful and convinces us that she is the sassy, intelligent and vulnerable model-turned-entrepreneur Lacey Summers. I would love to see her in more acting scenes... she can carry this show. Lana Tailor's come-what-may, free spirit allows her Vanessa to interact convincingly with all cast. Michael Scratch finally gets to play the sexy white knight.... His Jason allows the female cast to stay the focal point of scenes and the sexy boyishness quality of his voice makes him my favorite and that of my girlfriends who watch the show now.....
We anticipate a great fashion show finale and maybe a romantic reunion. Perhaps a Season 2 could introduce a competitor to Lacey, challenging her successful yet fragile business and romance.....? mwah
