Did anyone watch it last night and find it incredibly cringe-worthy? I know the first season was a bit hit and miss but last nights seemed even worse! And the storyline about bec having Doug's baby and all the respective partners sticking around seems so far fetched

Anyone else daring to watch?

I honestly want to punch Bec in the face soooooo hard.

I only watched a bit of the first season and didn't watch last night but I saw the ad and was a little confused. What happened? She's pregnant with someone who's not her husbands baby?

I never really got into this show despite watching it a bit because there was nothing else on - Offspring a much better show IMO.  But even with Offspring the characters can be a bit farfetched - Nina can act like the biggest tart and sleep with two or more people at once but they can still manage to portray her as a likeable, quirky scatterbrain (I do like her character, btw!).

I sat through it - with DH periodically asking, is there ANYTHING else on beside this.....

It was awful - granted they never had the greatest production values etc, but this was so amateurish, so badly acted/scripted/filmed.... I just wanted to give it a go because I did watch it last season, but overall verdict, big thumbs down for me.

I watched last season, and forgot how cheesy it was so tuned in last night.

Seriously, it was all so far fetched and ridiculous, but for some reason, kept watching huh.gif I suspect I will keep watching too, despite there being such an abundance of cheese.

Covert, I will join you in punching Bec in the face. And add Jen to the list as well.

i love this show but yes it is far fetched and cheesy

This show is soooo cheesey, its truly awful. The acting is terrible, I have no idea why I watched it and will probably continue to do so?? shrug.gif

I agree re punching bec and jen and will raise you a francis. Why again am I watching? haha

Worst plot too!

For some reason I can't watch rafters any more but will prob keep watching this? I have no idea why. haha

I'm addicted to it too even though it is seriously bad tv!

And yep, I LOVE offspring (yay it's on tonight!!!) , and am getting seriously fed up with Rafters. Seriously, there's no rafters left!

#10 Feralina

Yes to all of the above... but I still watch it! As much as I want to punch the girls in the face, I actually just like them too! Especially Francis and Sophie.

#11 Cath-In-SA

Posted 27 June 2012 - 05:19 PM

The entire concept is soo far-fetched but I am with the crowd and will keep watching and then complaining about it. wink.gif

I actually didn't think last night was as bad as I remember last season being, but that could be my memory too.

WTH is Francis looking after that brat for?!  Toss her out, she is clearly resourceful enough to deal with life on her own.

She's not legally old enough to be living alone and Frances has always had a very strong sense of right and wrong so she wouldn't allow her to live alone if she knew about it.

Bec and her now-husband Matt were engaged in S1, they broke up due to angst about the wedding and she started looking after Doug following an accident that she felt responsible for.  While Doug was living in her house they started dating but then they broke up when she realised she was still in love with Matt.  Then she and Matt had a very short notice wedding where Sophie realised that she really did love Doug and they started dating.  Bec found out she was pregnant at her wedding reception, quickly did the maths and worked out it had to be Doug's.  Which irritates me no end because hello, he's a doctor, safe sex should be second nature for him and by that I mean he should be taking care of condoms and so forth rather than assuming the Pill would never fail.

I agree with other pp's…Winners and Rafters are soooo cheesy.
Offspring is a million times better. Yay, it's my night to be the keeper of the remote control…bring on offspring. ddance.gif

#14 SlinkyMalinki

I don't particularly like it, but watch it anyway, as does DH under sufferance.

We both said of the first episode, at least it's not as stale as Rafters has been this season.

FWIW we both love Offspring original.gif

Agree with everyone about W&L, kept asking myself why I am watching this but continue to do so.

And FWIW, Nina (Offspring) never did sleep with the soup guy.

This show makes me want to chuck, storyline, actors, everything is bad

#18 Ange

I was thinking perhaps Bec's mum? Just wih a few things she said ie: that she didn't want to be alone, and that ppl should take risks? If not, I'm with you on the Grandma

#19 SlinkyMalinki

Posted 15 November 2012 - 05:53 PM

I'm still watching this, more to pick it to pieces, as it's been rubbish.  It's my 'keep me awake until Survivor starts' show.

I'm wondering if they could off Doug or Matt, so Bec and baby can move in with the one that remains.

I am still watching.... I have no idea - cant beleive we have to wait two weeks!

#21 CherrySunday

Posted 15 November 2012 - 06:05 PM

Still watching here too! Also thinking Grandma Gross (Nanna Dot).

I like W&L so much better than offspring - cant stand Asher Keddie for starters!!

I have just started watching this show. Can someone please explain to me the story behind the paternity of Bec's baby?

@ Fabuolus see quote below from cheryl_v outlining the story behind Bec's baby

Bec and her now-husband Matt were engaged in S1, they broke up due to angst about the wedding and she started looking after Doug following an accident that she felt responsible for.  While Doug was living in her house they started dating but then they broke up when she realised she was still in love with Matt.  Then she and Matt had a very short notice wedding where Sophie realised that she really did love Doug and they started dating.  Bec found out she was pregnant at her wedding reception, quickly did the maths and worked out it had to be Doug's.  Which irritates me no end because hello, he's a doctor, safe sex should be second nature for him and by that I mean he should be taking care of condoms and so forth rather than assuming the Pill would never fail.

Which he's now wrongly assumed twice! I like Doug but he's not the smartest doctor!

I can't believe there is only one more episode. I will miss them!
