Not Absolutely Hilarious But Quite Amusing
1 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Up The Women This is written by Jessica Hynes, who wrote Spaced!!! But didn't get as much credit for it as the now extremely popular Simon Pegg.

BBC Four has started many good sitcoms over the last few years Lead Balloon, The Thick of It and to be honest I don't think that this has much potential. Yes it was funny and overall a pretty promising comedy, but it's not a very relatable and popular topic. Unlike ITV's new sitcom Vicious about 2 elderly gay men which is set in modern day and everyone can imagine happening. Also (although this may sound ironic considering that Up The Women is about suffragettes and women's rights)this is almost certainly going to be more popular with the female audience than the male audience like me. Overall UP THE WOMEN is an average sitcom which will definitely make you chuckle but I really doubt will advance to BBC Two or One 7/10
