Bev S. 1.1.10
Sugar Rush is a series that aired on Channel 4 in the UK a few years ago for two seasons. The plot revolves around Kim, a 15 year-old lesbian virgin who is sexually obsessed with her best friend, Sugar, despite the fact Sugar is a promiscuous, selfish, and (worst of all) *straight* juvenile delinquent who takes advantage of Kim's unrequited interest. The action takes place in Brighton, a seaside town that is an upscale, queer version of Ocean City. In season two, Kim avails herself of Brighton's decadent gay pleasures while Sugar is incarcerated. No longer repressed and frustrated, she pursues a life of non-stop partying while dating the DJ goddess of the "Clit Club" who also works at the "Munch Box" sex shop. In the dizzying finale, Kim must choose between love and obsession when things get serious in her relationship. This show should be on every lesbian's watch list and is well worth the price of a region-free DVD player!
