Reviews of the raunchy sex comedy
This six-part series is rated highly on IMDb. It has acquired a rating of 7.2. But the users’ reviews are quite polarizing.
One writes: “Really good! The first episode you need for the basic plot set up. Then from episode 2 it gets really good. Dirty Lines is rooted in real life. Great actors, and great production. With many funny moments.”
While tokkie235 review reads: “Enough already. Netflix shoving and forcing these woke ideas down your throat. I want to be entertained, not poisoned with snowflake ideas. Start doing what you are paid for. Entertainment please!”
Decider says to stream it. According to it, “Dirty Lines, created by Pieter Bart Korthuis based on Fred Saueressig’s book 06-Cowboys, takes the right tone when it comes to telling the fictionalized story of the Netherlands’ first phone sex line.”
Ready Steady Cut gives Dirty Lines a thumbs up, as well, and writes in the review, “It has some things going for it, though. It’s snappily written, sometimes pretty funny, and the cast are game. It easily sustains interest throughout its entire runtime, doesn’t outstay its welcome, and wraps things up in a satisfying way.”
