Hello. How similar do you think this show is to Footballers Wives?

    I watched the original Footballers Wives on ITV in the UK and can't help but think this show is very similar to it. There are a few slight differences which i think make this show the better one. But does anyone else feel it might go down the same path eventually?

    It has a lot of similarities but I think the writing for the show needs to be tightened up quite a bit. It's been pretty mild so far for the steamy aspect....Damon does seem like quite a piece of work, though...

    I'm not necessarily locking for more steamy scenes tbh. More depth to the characters is what's needed. With better writing too. I just hope it doesn't become farcical like FW with murder occurring left right and center. Totally agree about Damon though. He hs a lot of potential.

    Damon IS quite a character, and what a temper! I can't believe he hasn't gone crazy on that Mandy chick yet. JMO.
