Wonderful 1980s British sitcom, very much of its era
The premise for The Two of Us was young, modern couple Ashley and Elaine "living in sin" - much to the disapproval of Ashley's parents. Yes, as late as the 1980s this was still considered amusingly controversial enough in Britain to base an entire series around.
To give you a taste: one episode features the couple insisting on being given a double bed when they stay with his conservative parents. After a long battle they win... and in the final scene it turns out to be a bunk bed.
It was "gentle comedy" even by the standards of the time, and today can be enjoyed as cosy nostalgia. If you like The Upper Hand, you'll probably enjoy this.
