Extreme Emotional Noir Comedy
8 December 2005 | by (Dubai, UAE) – See all my reviews

This series is a terrific showcase for the amazing Julia Davis... my favorite comedian on TV these days. Rob Brydon is also a good fit and considerable talent. They play a very different couple in each episode although some same relationship dynamics are threaded throughout the series.

The series defies easy synopsis but I viewed it as a study of couples who somehow manage to make a relationship work, despite profound dysfunction.

As for genre, you might need to invent one! Generally it falls into "cringe comedy"

I would call it: "extreme emotional noir comedy."

(DISCLAIMER: The series is so strange that I might be WAY off in my analysis. I wish someone directly connected to the series would tell me if I'm even close. Also, I missed a couple of the episodes. )
