Hilarious, lovable comedy
28 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my all-time favourite comedies, Cuckoo makes you watch it with a smile on your face, at times makes you laugh uncontrollably but also creates real connections with the characters. Some of the lines are simply priceless, and still make me laugh days after the episode. Series one takes a couple of episodes to get going, but by the third of the series, the characters have all bedded in well and it reaches its potential. I would urge anyone who is unsure after watching one or two episodes to persevere.

The second series is arguably even better than the first, with 'Tribunal' in particular one of the funniest episodes of anything I have ever seen. What makes this comedy great is the characters, who all complement each other perfectly. Greg Davies' performance as Ken is a highlight, and Adam Samberg and Taylor Lautner play their wacky, new age characters to perfection and without stealing too much attention, despite their fame.

In conclusion, I could not recommend Cuckoo high enough, and would urge anyone to watch it.

10/10
