Clever, gripping and ultimately heart-wrenching
20 August 2017 | by hathen_2528See all my reviews

"The Other Guy" is not a feel good, packed to the rafters, clean-cut, Australian "dramedy".

What it is, is a well thought out character study that clearly comes from a real place in Matt Okine's mind/past. The themes here are heavy, highlighted by extreme yet believable characters; people we have all dated, bumped into, or shared a house with at some point in our lives.

AJ acts as a lens through which the audience can watch, and the show does an excellent job of making the viewer empathise with him. As such, the constant blame and misfortune that falls on AJ is angering, making the actions of those around him feel personal to the viewer.

Clever writing with an understanding of Australian culture is what grounds "The Other Guy", the relationships are painfully real, and the supporting cast reflect very much the duality of relationships in the modern day.

If you want a great new show to watch, this is a great one. Just be prepared to have a huge gaping hole in your chest by the end of season 1
