Storyline

Donna has a drunken revelation on her hen night and decides that she has been missing out on the single life. So with just days to go, she calls off her wedding to fiancé Karl and moves in with her two best friends - Karen, an irresponsible primary school teacher, and Louise, a hopelessly romantic waitress. Will Donna find what she is looking for? Or will she find that the grass isn't always greener on the other side? Including a supporting cast of weird and wonderful ensemble characters, we follow the three girls as they try to navigate their way through the pitfalls of every day life, with frequently hilarious consequences.

What makes it good is that everyone is ugly
10 May 2011 | by trollermanSee all my reviews

It's no longer true, if it ever was, that British TV is better than American. But this show would be ruined in America because we just wouldn't tolerate all the ugly people. Of course, we have just as many ugly people, but we do not let them on TV. This show celebrates the British right to be unattractive yet still have an active romantic life. No one in this show is attractive, not the women, the men, not even the scenery (making London as ugly as The Shield made LA ugly. Great! It IS ugly!). The men, the men are all trolls, I'm sure meant to be horrible in every way and a typical depiction is the fiancé washing his privates in the first episode. But the women. My goodness, it's wonderful how unpleasant they not only behave, but look as well. Real life low, low standards. Brilliant, unrelenting ugliness.
