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.

Excellent comedic handling of a serious subject
29 August 2019 | by bostockleigh-75918See all my reviews

Depression is not pleasant to say the least, but this series brings the point home without labouring it. Laughter smoothly moves to tears and back to laughter... much like life. The most depressing part for me was realising I had just watched the last episode of series 1. I'm really hoping for series 2, and as quickly as possible please! If you haven't seen it, make sure you do, your life can only be a little poorer without it....
