Absolutely Wonderful
13 February 2019 | by iloveairSee all my reviews

Up until a couple of days ago I'd never heard of this show and now I'm almost finished on season one. Pamela Adlon is a pleasure to watch and is a very funny lady.

I love Celia Imrie and was happy to see Lucy Davies in a supporting role.

This show is funny, heartwarming and sometimes sad but it's well written and well acted and Pamela is my new favourite actress!
