Pleasant surprise!
25 August 2017 | by toliver597See all my reviews

I was not especially interested in watching this after seeing the ads. Not for any specific reason - it just didn't grab my attention. But I more-or-less stumbled across it one evening while channel-surfing, and just loved it right from the word go. The show is funny, well-acted and endearing - with slight reminiscences of Adrian Mole's diary from the 80s. Thanks to SBS and Ben Law - one of the best comedies I've seen in a while!
