Don’t wake the kids for Showtime’s late-night skin skein “Red Shoes Diaries.” It’s pure adult entertainment. In this episode, “Just Like That,” producers strip away the image legal secretaries are stuffy.
But there are few legal secretaries like Trudie. Nina Siemaszko brings a steamy performance to a Clark Kent-type quickly discovering she’s hot property.
Just like that, Trudie is given the elevator ride of her life by a bicycle messenger (Matthew LeBlanc), whose advances had been spurned until now. Right after the sexual sojourn, she meets the other extreme, Phillip, a debonair lawyer (Tcheky Karyo).
Here lies the only tension of this erotic filler: Does she keep the pauper or the prince?
Best scenes are with Siemaszko and Karyo, who become odder bedfellows as they get better acquainted. Ted Kotcheff’s direction keeps Chloe King’s fluffy script moving quickly and with style, but plot is not as important as bedtime.
Filmmaker Zalman King (“9 1/2 Weeks,””Wild Orchid”) exec produces. His touch can be felt throughout. Series, returning here for its second season, centers around a character named Jake (David Duchovny), who has somehow convinced beautiful women to send him their erotic diaries.
