I finally saw the first epi. It was a really good pilot epi. And like you said hot men and skin. I wish the soaps had that kind of action

It was a strong pilot epi. Uusally pilots don't draw in my attention like that but it had the right amount of skin, we could see relationships being developed and the problems didn't overwhelm.

Yes, but if the concept for this series is how she heals relationships and lives one hand job at a time, then deal me out. That's taking the phrase "Touched by an Angel" a bit too literally.

Ah, yes, "The Rub." Because names for massage parlors are ALWAYS that obvious.

If anyone wants to read the GFY recap of the TV movie, it's kind of fun.

Frankly, I don't understand how anyone at Lifetime would think the original movie, as successful as it was, was the PERFECT "backdoor pilot" for a weekly series. It was an interesting, if tawdry, story; in series form, however, I fear it'll be one-note.

I think they have made enough changes already to keep it interesting. The husband leaving her, his brother is clearly going to step up so there is that, the other girls' lives is also an area they can focus on some.

I think they did a good enough job reworking the story for it to last awhile.

I watched the first episode out of curiosity the other day and loved it. Juicy, soapy, and guilty pleasure. Can't wait for tonight.

The series is considered a re-imagining of the film not a direct continuation, Hewitt plays a different character with slightly similar circumstances, the movie her character is also struggling to make ends meet most notably because her husband is unable to work and was supposed to be a football player but became injured and in the series her husband has left her and her children so in both film and series she gets a job at a spa and soon discovers it is really a front for prostitution.
