If you know of one that beats Ladette to Lady, please share with the group. Because I can't imagine what it might be. The premise of this show – which was an unexpected ratings success for 9 when it screened the UK version last year – is to take a bunch of wild, 'uncouth', hard-partying girls and send them to an uptight English boarding school to suck the life out of them.
All their fiestiness and spirit is replaced with lessons in sewing and cooking and walking around with books balanced on their heads. The whole thing is absurd and insulting and basically based on the premise of keeping women demure and passive and confined to the bedroom or kitchen. Gag.
Followed last night by Confessions of a Callgirl. Classssy.
