Brilliantly fast paced fun with a treacherously sharp edge.
13 September 2016 | by jeremy-13267See all my reviews

Is it me, or have most new TV sitcoms been a bit weak & soft of late? Or merely rewritten 'homages' to old sitcoms that should have instead been left to run repeatedly on 'Re-run Gold', or whatever those channels are called. Yes, it's time for Mrs Slocombe's pussy to be finally laid to rest.

Well 'Our Ex-Wife' was a refreshing change for the better. a brilliantly fast paced romp of a sitcom with a vicious edge as sharp as a well honed knife.

You'll know the story-line from the other reviews above, but have to watch the pilot show itself to truly appreciate the masterful writing and the stunning performances of its cast.

Victoria Hamilton was amazing as Hillary, the O.T.T. 'Cruella DeVille' of an ex-wife, whilst Robert Webb as Jack, her ex-husband, tried to give as good as he got. but usually failed.

Melanie Lynskey and Peter Egan were excellent as Sarah & George, Jack's new Fiancée and Father. Sarah trying feebly to form a bond with the 'psychopathic' Hillary, whilst George wisely trying to stay out of the line of fire as best he could.

Even the supporting actors were great, especially the kids.

At last we have a sitcom that is pure gold, and I for one cannot wait to see more episodes of 'Our Ex-Wife'as soon as possible.
