Not as bad as other reviewers seem to think.
Actually, I've caught some episodes of the TV series "Daisy Daisy" and don't find them as bad as some of your other reviewers seem to think. I wouldn't necessarily say that she was 'vacuous' just very pertinent in her delivery of black comedy and wryly observed commentary on the contemporary mores in society which after all do in most cases need to be taken with a pinch of salt, at the very least, blown out of the water, at best. As example I am looking at the shows she did in the good Le USA on pageantry (how to be a teen beauty queen) and general satire on the American way of life in general and American people's basic ignorance of much that is out of their own sphere.( "Hello, is that near Scotchland?") It is biting and very wry and yes she takes the p***, but for god's sake someone needs to. I found the American obsession with the 'perfect body' ,obsession with plastic surgery and the way that American mothers groom their young girls for 'showbiz ' and the celebrity lifestyle quite sickening, so I say good luck, Daisy, and keep up the good work.
