WIGS - Christine
WIGS series have a common thread of women in crisis, whether it's a poker game going badly, a decision about getting married, an old junkie boyfriend re-appearing out of the blue. So far, none of the ones I've seen are "Pretty Woman" happy-ever-after kind of stories. Some are more light-hearted than others (I found Jan quite whacky, whereas Blue was really dark). I've just finished watching Christine, with America Ferrera (Ugly Betty to you and me). It's about a beautiful young woman on an evening of speed dating. All is not what it seems, and bit by bit, we get to discover what Christine is really after, and why she seems so tense.
