Oh my deity indeed.
Initial thoughts? I’m happy with the results.
The show is getting a huge on-line slating for it’s handling of the issues (and believe me, when you’re going to do an episode on transgender and then use the line “I look like a tranny” 3 times in 10 minutes, you’re DOING IT WRONG) and although I’m certain they won’t pull the show (ITV != Fox), I doubt many will be watching by the time the polyamory segment rolls round.
The good news as well is that damage should be pretty limited. Watching the show, it seems polyamory will end up being slipped in as a 5 minute filler. Tonight’s one was “OMG She’s changing her FB relationship status!”. No, really. 5 minutes for a couple changing their relationship status to single on Facebook and the immediate response. Such top quality programming, it’s like why do we even need the BBC any more…
