    Well a solid season premiere from the Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Belle is now an independent prostitute, who is loving the independence. Her family is incorporated in to the show, when her sister has a christening. And Belle attends, runs in to Ben, and "shatters the kid's hopes and dreams" That was a funny scene. A wannabe escort seeks Belle's advice. Her name is Bambi, and it seems like she's nothing but trouble, when she takes one of Belle's client. Belle also has to go through a heated investigation where identity as a prostitute might be revealed. A private detective confronts her, this is getting her in some hot water. I guess this show is past glamorization. Since prostitutes actually face problems. They end up getting the wrong girl in the end. Belle also meets Alex, who apparently is going to date her. I'm interested to see how Belle's love life is going to be like. Great season premiere!moreless
  • An amazing episode, the best so far. Warning spoilers contained below.

    Well here it is, season 2, though it doesn't really feel like it considering most shows I watch run more than 8 episodes for a season. Early on we see a unique mix up, as Belle goes up with a guy named like her client who even gives her money in an envelope, but it turns out is not her client. I was still wondering who this guy was and why he looked so much like a client, not to mention why he gave her money and a passport? Well I have to say, this episode toped any episode thus far, in story and in amount of quality. The episode was packed with interesting stories and really felt a lot more exciting then episodes before it.moreless
