Absolutely Brilliant!
12 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is such a genius and well thought comedy! It captures Jewish humour so well, even better than Woody Allen! Simon Amstell's awkwardness is just so funny and his dry sense of humour is so good! Can't fault this at all! So brilliant! The aunt is just amazing! As is his grandma and his mum! Love this! Definitely watch it!!! I can understand why some people probably wouldn't get it and or find it funny, but it is just so good and you need a brain to comprehend the humour! It most definitely got better as the series went on. Casting Iwan Rheon was just brilliant! So clever. I loved when they mentioned how his character was an Olivier-Award winning actor (because Iwan Rheon did actually win an Olivier Award for Spring Awakening). Genius!!!

10/10!!!
