Hello Ladies 2013 9 out of 10
Hello Ladies was a short lived, but excellent HBO Series. It was created by and stars Steven Merchant. The series is about 8 episodes and then concludes with a direct to HBO movie. Steven Merchant plays Stuart Pritchard a socially awkward, tall and lanky Brit living in Hollywood. Stephen Merchant was a co-writer and director of the original BBC version of the office and it shows. The Character of Stuart is like a gawky awkward version of Ricky Gervais's David Brent. The main character is basically a selfish bastard that only cares about trying to hook up with models at which he is an absolute walking disaster at. Stephen Merchant is brilliant and hilarious as this awkward wanna be ladies man. His attempts to pick up girls is hard to watch in a funny way. At times you feel bad for him--back at other times you realize he gets exactly what he deserves because of how he treats the people around him. I wish this series had lasted longer--but like many great British treasures it didn't. If you love the BBC version of The Office absolutely check this series out on Netflix.
Here is a sample of a great scene from the show where he takes a girl on a date to a fancy restaurant that is a little out of his price range. This scene pretty much sums up the series.
