'Him and Her' is a rather strange comedy series. Following the undemanding rhythms of the lives of a couple of lazy twenty-somethings, it's bleak but grimly humorous. While there are some of the conventions of the genre on show (the nerdy single neighbour, for example), it nicely captures a sort of contemporary coziness and rubbishness, in a manner vaguely similar to shows such as 'Pulling'. But whereas 'Pulling' was hysterically funny, 'Him and Her' lacks both the inspired lunacy, or any sense of plot: each episode is nicely constructed, but it's hard to feel like anything really matters. Rather, it's a series almost entirely full of those moments that make you smile (in a rather revolted way) while you wait for the real gag. I felt I ought to like it more than I did; but sadly, I lost interest before it was through.
