Hate it already
26 May 2016 | by beresfordjdSee all my reviews

I am about 10 minutes into the first episode on BBC iplayer and I hate it already. Nothing rings true about it and comedy has to have a ring of truth for it to work. The children in it are obnoxious and the woman who plays Nina just is not up to it. Only Helena Bonham Carter works in this. Nina would have been out of a job in a heartbeat if she had been the way she was in this debacle. I have been really disappointed by this as I have always enjoyed Nick Hornby's writing in previous outings. It just goes to show how difficult the sitcom form can be. The way children speak in front of their parents is ridiculously inappropriate and it jars horribly on the ears. Likewise the way her employers speak in front of her, their employee.
