She releases her hair from a tight bun and shakes it loose.

Quotes Clare Pettengill: Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Jean Pettengill: Do you fancy a cup of fuck off? Crazy Credits The first season's opening credits show the characters' houses in the order they appear during the book group sessions: Clare, Dirka, Barney, Rab, and Janice; though he had picked the book, Kenny decided to have the group meet at Clare's instead and Fist hadn't picked one during the first season.

We hadn't even discussed that possibility. A sitcom about a book group discussing the likes of The Celestine Prophecy and Don Quixote is a little "high-concept". Griffin shakes her head. She says she thinks TV executives and commissioning editors underestimate audiences and that hyping a show can often backfire.
In general, I think television viewers don't want to like something if it is being pushed down their throats. Sex and the City did badly in its first year because they hyped it so much. People like to discover things for themselves. Its cast of characters, from the earnest wheelchair-user Kenny through uptight Claire to football fetishist Rab, are an extraordinary, often quite unpleasant bunch. And literature is usually the last thing on their minds.
There's not only group sex to look forward to, there's also performance art in a swimming pool involving frogmen and Barney's bearded brother Lachlan.
Perhaps the highlight of episode one was seeing exactly how far Rab's interest in Spanish footballers extends. Or, more precisely, how far a Spanish footballer's interest in Rab extends. Eye-wateringly funny doesn't even begin to cover it.
That's what I love about television - you can really identify with characters and go into relationships with them.
A lot of people have that with soap characters but for me, it's something like ER. When Dr Greene's father died, I found myself wondering how he was dealing with it. Even if there isn't a third series - and I'm not sure about that yet - the characters will go on.
When I was writing it, I didn't know what was going to happen. You're sitting there and there are moments that surprise you. I don't do story outlines, I just write and things happen.
I always feel like I'm following them, not creating them.
