“The glammehhh! The glitz! And of course the geerls!”. No, not the new series of Wallander – welcome to E4’s Desperate Scousewives. If you’ve been living in a blissful bubble for the past few weeks, you won’t know about Desperate Scousewives – the latest in the The Only Way Is Essex/Made In Chelsea ‘structured reality’ trend. Featuring a selection of the city’s ‘it’ girls and boys (that essentially means people who go to parties a lot), it’s already divided opinion online and is set to be Liverpool’s big watercooler moment this year. By that we mean you’ll be moaning about it to your co-workers at the Christmas party. So, what does the trailer hint at? Well, it looks darkly funny in an oh-God-no-please-no type way (“scouse brow”) but also hugely awkward: see the Hollyoaks-esque breakup scene and model Amanda Harrington’s phenomenally fake rant at a local celebrity blogger as an example. Although the trailer makes us cringe our entire soul out of our body, it’ll be really interesting to seeing how the full show works and what the reaction will be to it. What do you reckon? Comment below… Desperate Scousewives debuts on E4, 10pm, Monday 28th November.

I haven’t finished ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ yet. November 23, 2011 at 9:08 am mercyuk November 23, 2011 Oh my god! I feeeel ashamed. November 23, 2011 at 9:18 am JG November 23, 2011 Horrific. If anyone reading this is involved in the production, publicity or even worse appearing in this show, I’d just like you to know you’re an embarrassment to and a blight on this city. ‘I feel ashamed’ (imagine that said in badly fake accent) November 23, 2011 at 10:01 am Rachel Gardner November 23, 2011 Like with X Factor and Strictly, I know Twitter will watch and dissect so I don’t have to. November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Rob King November 23, 2011 Who are these grotesque people? Avoid, ignore. November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Joe Forrest November 23, 2011 I hope there’s some subliminal messaging hidden in the show so anyone who watched it commits suicide. How is this in anyway good for the city… or humanity! November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Nicki Jones November 23, 2011 I’ve decided to emigrate. Just need to decide where to. November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Kevin Donovan November 23, 2011 Oh dear. So very different to the home life of our own dear queen. November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Jo Wood November 23, 2011 This should put the finishing touches to losing the world heritage site accolade!! Horrendous. November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Norma Farrell November 23, 2011 Reinforce stereotype and make a fast buck anyone?! November 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm Ste Evans November 23, 2011 Getting swerved like all other reality shows.completely disinterested in this shite November 23, 2011 at 4:57 pm Holly Golightly November 24, 2011 Cue more fake scouse accents from desp wannabes who are most likely not even from lpool. November 24, 2011 at 4:14 pm worldsofpaul November 26, 2011 Hideous, but what i was expecting more or less. Those of us it doesn’t represent – we know it doesn’t, so there’s no point getting worked up about it. I might just give it a look just to giggle at the ludicrous ego masturbation on offer. It could be ironic genius. November 26, 2011 at 12:22 am Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply. You must be logged in to post a comment.
