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
I think this is a hilarious, honest, and funny show. No, it's not exactly highbrow, but c'mon...it's television! This reminds me of the BBC show "Coupling." I was also thinking that I like that these people look pretty "normal." The women aren't emaciated, the guys are cute but not in a cookie-cutter Hollywood way. I also like that they address the common myths, problems, ideas, situations and fears of new parents. I also find a lot of this pretty easy to relate to - I have the friend who is the crazy new mom (Julie) and the friend who is scared but excited about being pregnant (Lauren), and the cynical friend who will never have kids (Cooper). I'm not a laugh-out-loud at the TV kind of person, but I do find myself laughing out loud a lot at this show.
