  1. The series shows the darker side of Belle's work without getting into that porno-punishing crap so often disguised as morality lessons. The series, like Belle, is far too smart to succumb to such an average attitude.

    It’s titillating without being truly trashy, because it also has heart--for that, thank Bil-lie Piper (formerly of Doctor Who), who brings wit and warmth, but also a crisp and unpredictable edge, to the tricky role of Belle by night/Hannah by day.

    The real pleasures of this half-hour show come from its sly sense of humor and from Belle’s practical yet adventurous approach to her job.
  4. Future episodes elevate the Belle and Ben relationship to a more complicated place, which bears some promise and may give Secret Diary the distinction it lacks in early episodes.
  5. Call Girl's greatest flaw is not that it's exploitative but that it's surprisingly dull.
  6. The longer you watch the show (I've seen all eight episodes of its first season), the emptier and more frustrating it becomes, to the point where even the brief running time begins to feel too long.
  7. The laughless Secret Diary is billed as a comedy, but it is hardly amusing to follow the spoiled, immoral and lazy Belle as she slinks around London doing this and that with and to a lineup of wealthy men.

It does well not to glamorize prostitution and provides escapism for its audience. You also feel that you've become close to Belle/ Hannah. Really enjoyed it. Expand

    She is the most uninteresting call girl in the history of the world. This show is just as bad as Brotherhood.
