Best new comedy show in over a year...
3 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

==What to expect==

I dislike almost all programming on the BBC, with the exception of Horizon (and other rare occasional documentary feats). None of the current US comedy programming is really satisfactory to me either, with the exception of Saturday Night Live. If you feel similar then Cuckoo might just be the show for you.

==Style==

Accent-wise Cuckoo is about 1/3 American and 2/3 British with light accents and is perfectly comprehensible. The show is lightweight and upbeat, with a modern touch and starts out with a single lady and her girlfriend in Thailand, with the setting soon transitioning to the familiar UK (or is it Ireland?). There is no British humor, or any of the typical "Britishness" one comes to expect from most BBC shows.

==Story==

The story in the first episode revolves around the big news which the not-so-single-lady-anymore brought home to her family and the resulting struggle of coping with the new family circumstances. The story doesn't really matter much though, because the script and acting is simply consistently hilarious. I am hooked. (Episode 2 is even funnier, so the pilot wasn't just a "glitch")
