Storyline

A pin-sharp and poignant new six-part comedy series about the social, mental and personal obstacles that just get in the way of happiness. Aisling Bea plays Aine, a woman trying to pull her life back together after a 'teeny little nervous breakdown', as her fretful sister Shona (Sharon Horgan) worries, not only about her sibling, but also about her own life choices.

The first episode was simply just not funny. And Aine, Aisling Bea's character, simply isn't a sufficiently sympathetic character.

Aisling Bea was reported as finding writing this difficult, "contrasting with what's she used to when creating her stand-up comedy."

I suspect the lesson from successful sitcoms, such as the magnificent Pulling (2006-2009), is to always work with a co-writer. Aisling Bea is clearly a very competent comedy actor (e.g. Vodka Diaries from the BBC Comedy Feeds series of 2012), but she needs some guidance and input from an experienced writer if she wants to (co-)write a successful sitcom.
