Clichéd, comfortable, unconvincing.... and very funny
OK, so this isn't the most radical of sitcoms. It's full of middle class clichés not to mention many situations and characters we've seen up teen times before. But I really like it. As long as you can suspend your disbelief long enough to believe that a man can be (pretty much) stalked by his ex wife yet tolerated, then the wit and one liners, not to mention the charm of many of the show's cast should win you over easily enough. The acting is (in the main) pretty broad. Lindsay Duncan is OTT but very funny as the ex wife, and Antony Head is probably the only cast member that seems to be underplaying as Ed. Everyone else just stays on the right side of outright mugging. But hey, leave your radicalism in another room and take this programme for what it is - an enjoyable, funny sitcom in the traditional style.
