Trivia

In March 2014, Sky Arts announced that it was reprising its Playhouse Presents (2012) series of self-contained television plays. Jo Brand and Morwenna Banks penned a script for what was hoped to be a pilot episode. Sky Arts aired the episode but never commissioned it to series; so Brand, Banks, and comedic writer Will Smith re-developed it for Channel 4, who announced its commission in May 2016. See more »

Interesting and funny.
3 March 2018 | by icefire-51225See all my reviews

Just binge watched this show up to the current episode and I have to say, I love it. While certainly this isn't jolly laughs, it's very in depth and very realistic. This show is very much comedy, however it's done in such a way that, it replicates real life in many ways, it leaves in many depressing and unfunny moments which is really atmospheric and really makes you sympathise with the characters. One other thing this show does well is it's ability to know when to end things. There are many overarching plot lines but with each episode there are definitive ends and good developement towards characters and setting. It also cuts out many times where I have not wanted to continue, i.e. Awkward situations, for which I am thankful for.
