"Good Girls Don't" - a great show... on Oxygen?!?

Discovered this hysterical show on Oxygen this weekend: "Good Girls Don't" Anyone watch it? I did a search and found a thread that claimed it's a new show but not much discussion. Great stuff. Very weirdly acted and written.

So I watched it, and I kept thinking Marjorie (Bree Turner)reminded me of what Kate Winslet's taller/slimmer sister would look like. She also reminded me of Amy Acker in some respects.

And Nichole Hiltz is on the show (she played the girlfriend of Caleb on "The O.C. in the early part of last season).

The show is somewhat amusing, not bust out laughing so far, just a bit on the neurotic side.

Anyone start watching this? The last episode nearly killed me. They was domination, S&M, references to adult babies, and even a momentary shot of "pegging" (read Dan Savage's advice column if you wanna know what that is.) It's a bold show. Reminds me of how a few episodes back there was a plotline involving a pregnancy fetishist. Great show.

I started watching this recently and I guess I like it. One annoying thing is that for every good joke, there's like 2 bad ones.

The whole show has an odd feeling to it. Since nowadays I don't really watch any show with a laugh track, whenever I hear one on a show, it always seems out of place. But this show is actually the opposite. Whenever they tell one of their horrible jokes, I always expect to be hit with a wave of cacophonous laughter. Of course that's a good thing that it's not there, but it still feels odd. Another thing is all the actors seem to be good at comedy, but none of them feel like they're playing real characters. They're a little too stereotypical for my tastes, but that might be more of a problem with the writers.

I don't drool easily, but Bree Turner in that naughty teacher outfit was outstanding! I dig this show.

It does grow on you (although I liked it the moment I stumbled on it.) There is somehing totally off kilter about it. I think it's really great.

Check out their website. It's super-amateurish. There are photos from the cast hanging out at a party. It's just as silly as the show: http://www.goodgirlsdont.tv/

Hmmm, people actually watch this show?!?! And they're claiming it's good?!?! Maybe I'll have to check it out..

Pffft, that's been done before with the show Coupling.

I'm loving this show!
It's extremely funny and very different from your average sitcom. Like a breath of fresh air, really :-)

Also, Davis is hot.

They discussed the pegging, but did not show the pegging.

If this show actually shows some pegging, I will have to watch it.

It was a quick shot in the last episode. The new ep is fri at 9 and the last one will rerun right after at 9:30.

Well, the new ep with the gay brother was pretty terrific. I laughed my arse off.
