Well it is darkly comic or should I just say bleak.
If it has some beats that remind you of Fleabag, it is because they have the same producers.
Daisy Haggard plays Miri Matteson. She also co-wrote the series.
Miri is in her 40s and needs to rebuild her life after a 18 year stretch in prison.
She has returned to her parents home in a sleepy coastal town. There might have been the internet before she went in but smartphone technology has been a quantum leap. Other people have moved on such as her ex boyfriend, now married with children. He also is rather to close with Miri's mother.
This is a fish out of water dramedy. Miri has to rebuild her life and bounce back as some people will not let her forget what she did.
Of course going by the first episode you see the basic set up. Miri feels awkward being out. It is also strange for her parents, although we see that her mother is having an affair.
If this was a drama, I think I would be more positive about it.
