Shannon has reviewed 'The Girlfriend Experience: Season One'. He says this isn't a great series, but it definitely pulled him in. Worth a look. Here's why...

Based on this review, this sounds like a fairly faithful adaptation of Soderbergh's film into television series. With the exception of the protagonist being a law student, it could very well be a continuation. And for me, that's not a good thing. All the problems Shannon talks about on the show was how I felt about the movie. It was really dry; you never got much of a sense of insight into the protagonist's head; the subject of sex as a commodity wasn't really explored.

It felt like one of those movies that was mostly improvised with the director hoping something meaningful would come together in the editing room, but it did not.
