The first series was so funny. Anyone else looking forward to it starting back tomorrow?

I didn't realise the two main characters co-wrote it too!

I LOVE it, it's really to record!!

LBOCS2 Mon 26-Oct-15 19:14:19

Yep - got my series link all set up, I really enjoyed the first one!

choppychopster Mon 26-Oct-15 19:19:56

Really looking forward to it. grin

NickNackNooToYou Mon 26-Oct-15 19:22:43

I love it too & glad it's back.

Slight de-rail but was Sharon Horgan in another comedy about someone who was arrested? I vaguely remember watching it & searching on catch up has failed to bring anything up.

Shakerlackerboomboom Mon 26-Oct-15 20:36:34

I think I remember that but can't find reference to it either

"Pulling" - fucking hilarious! 3 twenties something "romantic misfits". I roared with laughter through every episode and the special.

She's a goddess!

I think the other SH comedy you remember was when she was in prison for killing her boss, except she hadn't, and I think it was called 'Dead boss', on BBC3.

Cannot wait for this - my absolute favourite show. Hope it stays as good.

I watched the whole of series 1 last week on catch up on four. I had never even heard of it but spent the entire time watching it thinking 'how could I have missed this?'

I thoroughly enjoyed it and what with River coming up at 9 and series 2 of Catastrophe starting at 10 it's a great night for tvsmile

What did people think of it? I loved parts, but felt maybe the pace of the humour was a bit forced and frenetic at times.

Anyway, am sure I'll still be watching it avidly. As an aside, how the hell have they afforded that amazing house?

LookAtMeGo Wed 28-Oct-15 12:15:02

Yeah,*pomegranate*, in London too!

I thought it was funny in parts. I liked the twist that this was their second pregnancy, not the first that we left the previous series on.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Wed 28-Oct-15 14:26:31

I spent the whole episode trying to work out how they got that house too!

StepfauxWife Wed 28-Oct-15 20:25:34

That house! I thought it was hilarious. Looking forward to next week!

Havalina1 Wed 28-Oct-15 21:21:48

I thought it was great!

When she was talking about bonding, or lack of, I remembered they deal with something of weight in each episode.

Perhaps, perhaps they upped the 'sassy quips' in Sharon just a little. I'm not sure... regardless, loved it smile

Yes loved last series smile

Funny comedy

Makes a change smile

Mydearchild Thu 29-Oct-15 13:54:17

My only complaint is that I wish it was on for an hour. I love it!

DolphinsPlayground Thu 29-Oct-15 22:43:01

Just found this show. It's a little...strange? I can't quite work it out!

Ubik1 Thu 29-Oct-15 22:48:01

I love her.

And her house.

Sigh.

The dog bit was very funny.

GiddyOnZackHunt Thu 29-Oct-15 22:49:05

It was a bit close to the bone for us tonight! Not that it stopped it being funny.

GiddyOnZackHunt Thu 29-Oct-15 22:50:55

Ooh but Rob is a v high paid ad exec, no? And if he had a US apt and Sharon had a London flat perhaps not too far fetched?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 31-Oct-15 17:45:07

Few funny bits but didn't seem as good as last time sad

Dog bit was funny - bless woofa

I'm watching series one on 4od as it had totally passed me by when it was first on. Love it and it's got that gavin and stacey feel of the writers being the actors too. It has a very mumsnet feel about it, I wonder if sharon is a MNer?!

MrsJamin Sun 01-Nov-15 09:07:35

Ha I knew it...
“I’m a dad,” says Delaney, “but I look at Mumsnet. And there was this thing about a woman talking about how, now that she has two kids, whenever she vomits she pees herself because her kids messed up her pelvic floor. Being honest and transparent about the issue of having kids can be really funny.” m.broadcastnow.co.uk/5081939.article
