Storyline

Lip Service is a ground-breaking TV comedy drama series, focusing on the romantic lives of three gay women living in contemporary Glasgow. After two years living and working in New York, talented photographer Frankie (28), returns to Glasgow for her aunt's funeral. For Frankie it's time to confront her family, herself and her relationship with her ex-love, Cat. Cat (29), is an architect who has finally plucked up the courage to re-enter the dating scene and meets a loyal, feisty and funny cop, Sam (30). Their relationship blossoms Sam offers Cat everything the wild, capricious Frankie couldn't but simmering below the surface for both Frankie and Cat is an enduring love and passion that cant be ignored. Tess is an actress, who is fast approaching 30 with no career, money or love life. Like Frankie and Cat, she wants to learn from the past and find happiness but are they all destined to make the same mistakes again? Funny, irreverent and moving, Lip Service follows the interwoven ... Written by Kudo Film and Television

Season 2 is disappointing
27 May 2012 | by kkccooSee all my reviews

In season 2, I felt writing is very disconnected after Sam became a much more prominent character. The strengths of Lip Service in season 1 tended to be in the group/friendship scenes like "Friends".

The acting from the actress who play Sam is so bad that I have to skip all her scenes. There are no chemistry between Sam and Lexy and their sex scene is too awkward to look at. Other actress gave the strong acting though.

This show had great potential but the writing and the acting ruined it. I heard the rating is not strong this season so maybe there won't be season 3. If it has season 3, I hope writing gets improved.
