  • Pain.

    Okay, let me start off by saying this episode was definitely not fun to watch. The whole thing was as a matter a fact painful to watch. All Belle did throughout the episode, was get stuff from a sex shop, and hit one of her clients. Sometimes pain can be pleasure. It's funny to see what people get off on. But this, was just not watchable. It was unbearable. The thing that made this episode worthwhile was Ben getting married to Vanessa. Belle is told 2 months late, and they get in a fight over it. Then at the end, Belle sends him the truth about her, via text message. Got me interested in watching the next episode. So kudos on that one.moreless
  • In this episode we see Belle take on an S&M client, which is something new to her, so she gets the help of a professional. Warning spoilers contained below.

    So this time around the episode focuses on S&M, which is a new concept for Belle, and a more extreme sexual desire than anything we have seen so far. Belle get's the low down from a professional on how to properly do S&M, and I couldn't help but wonder why people would enjoy being treated like a dog. I can see why the mistress would like it, she gets to control someone as if they are a dog, but I don't get it from the slave's prospective. I guess some people just like it. Later in the episode we see Hannah get into a little bit of a conflict with her best friend, and it seems like she finally is ready to tell her friend what she does for a living. I liked this episode, it built up the characters more and we see Hannah's issues slip into Belle's work.moreless
  • Belle finds a client for S&M and takes a lesson from a seasoned pro.

    Finally, an episode of this British ITV ratings sweeper that has the essence of what a call girl likes: absolute control. This show just seems to have various sex scenes to make up for the lack of a decent script but certainly an interesting story. I have liked the comments Belle keeps peppering throughout the episodes as she cleans up with her clients. With all the other fair on TV and especially cable, another show with sex and nasty language would have made this one a yawn. So long as the allow Belle to wax philosophical, the show will be more than another show looking for new writers or an audience.moreless
