Sensible Andrew and emotive Lauren Stone are happily married. When they decide to embrace the 'joys of parenthood', their lives change, and those of her brother Danny and selfish boss (plus her PA), his staff and both their friends sets. And everything is compared to another couple, longer pregnant and sooner parents, Eric and Julie, in 'friendly' rivalry. Written by
There have been many vapid, watery attempts at an appealing comedy show in the past, and I'll sure there will be plenty more to come in the fall.
Luckily, this particular show is among the good batch. The humor is very consistent, and there's never a dramatic moment without a comical follow-up to compensate. It says to you 'Hm, even though it's obligatory that we must have these touching moments of overwrought sentiment, we can make up for that by immediately trailing this with an insanely witty bit, most likely to be delivered by the neurotic husband.'
It's clever, it's witty, and it possesses an pleasantly engaging title that screams for folks to give the name a double-glance, frown iffy-ly, say "Why, what is this 'Underbelly' you speak of?" and eventually (hopefully) succumb to their meddling curiosity and watch this show.
