Shows Similar to ‘Be Here Nowish’…

‘Girls’ (HBO, 2012)

You probably don’t need an introduction to ‘Girls’ or Lena Dunham. Set in New York, the show delves into the daily lives of four young women, exploring issues such as female sexuality, job stability, and other twists and turns we face in our daily lives.

‘Girls’ is probably what Nina and Sam’s lives were before the appeal of crystals and Ayahuasca took them to LA.

‘Girls’ packs just as much humour, sincerity and controversial sex as ‘Be Here Nowish’, but with a typical New York twist.

‘Sex and The City’ (HBO, 1998-2004)

‘Sex and The City’ is the show that paved the way for positive representations of female sexuality on TV.

If Carrie and Samantha were in their twenties in 2016, they would probably succumb to all the strange and hilarious trends Nina and Sam explore.

‘The Girl’s Guide to Depravity’ (Cinemax, 2012)

‘The Girl’s Guide to Depravity’ is a mix of ‘Be Here Nowish’ and ‘Sex and The City’.

This series is hilarious and resolutely modern.

Sam and Lizzie lead slightly more glamorous lives than Sam and Nina, but the four of them would definitely find common ground when it comes to their approach to their sex lives.

‘The L Word’ (Showtime, 2004-2009)

Even though it did receive its fair share of criticism, it was a crucial step for LGBT representation on TV.

One of the first shows to fully focus on gay women and the problems they encounter on a daily basis, ‘The L World’ also remains to this day one of the sexiest shows on TV.

‘Secret Diary Of A Call Girl’ (ITV2, 2007-2011)

‘Secret Diary Of A Call Girl’ follows the adventures of Hannah Baxter, a high-class call girl in London.
