Season 1 | Episode 5

Freddie and Stuart invite Ash and his new girlfriend, Chloe, to dinner. Infrequent acting work has been getting Freddie down, but things are looking up for Ash, who has fallen in love with the perfect woman. Or is she? As the evening progresses, Chloe’s habits stop seeming so sweet and tensions mount over dinner. Violet, meanwhile, is having difficulty with her lover in Buenos Aires.

    Did no one at Thirteen read the script of “Vicious” before agreeing to air it? There were jokes about rape in there! Clearly the writer has no clue what rape means, but at least SOMEONE at Thirteen should have vetted the episode in advance and done something about it. There is NOTHING funny about the subject of rape. The writer obviously thinks it means “seduction.” Did not one female at Thirteen object to the script??

      It’s called “Vicious”…not politically correct.

        John, Kris was obviously being very sensitive about the word ‘rape’ – I thought Violet was hilarious and really would have loved Ashe making love to her. I heard the word “rape” but didn’t think of it considering the fact that “VICIOUS” is a sit com.

    Who doesn’t love this show? It’s funny as well as a bit naughty. I have news for those complaining in the comments section, YOUR AGE IS SHOWING. Lighten up! –

  • L Rutledge

    I’ve watched all of the episodes so far, hoping it would get better, but the humor is predictable and cliche’, and it’s so over-acted, by really good actors. I find it more annoying than entertaining. I’m disappointed.

About Vicious

tells the story of partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other’s throats, cracking snide remarks aimed at the other’s age, appearance and flaws.
