Suburbia subverted
8 March 2001 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

Perhaps in another, parallel universe where television is valued people are still enjoying the humour of Guy Hibbert's Nice Town and celebrating the original, the bold and the subversive.

Possibly Paul McGann's greatest comedic performance to date, and played absolutely straight, even wearing a pinnie, this series gives him a chance to trot out his particular talent for demureness, previously hinted at in Withnail and I. The series plays on the themes of role reversal, androgyny and suburban suffocation.

McGann plays Joe Thompson, the "ideal" husband, who cooks, cleans and looks after his child while his high-powered wife (Josette Simon, fantastic) goes out to work, a man who craves to be kept barefoot and pregnant, chained to the kitchen stove. He's clucky. His wife isn't. What's a man to do?

With a nod to Dennis Potter and Guy Hibbert's fantastic verbal riffs, this series should not be missed.
