Could anyone recommend any sitcoms like catastrophe? DH working late this week and we are watching The Good Wife when he's home but when he's not I really enjoyed Catastrophe and also First Dates. Just looking for half hour easy watching and entertaining!

There's so much on 4od and Netflix that I end up spending half my evening searching.

Did you ever watch Pulling?

Also co-written and featuring Sharon Horgan. Loved it.

No I haven't - vaguely remember it being advertised a while ago. I'll look it up... Hopefully it's available online. Thanks!!

Can buy first series for £5.99 on bbc so not too bad. Love Sharon Horgan. Haven't laughed out loud for a long time as much as I did in first 2 episodes of Catastrophe!

Fresh Meat!

'You're the worst' is a good one. Not so nice couple and their friends, very fun and a bit mean.

Thanks all! This should keep me going for a bit. Along with First Dates which is one of my staples.

If Veep is available on any of those platforms, it's excellent

I came on here to recommend Pulling! Totally underated imo. Like the prequel to catastrophe.
Also 'master of none' and 'broad city.'

I've not been able to get any of the recommendations for free. Ended up watching Cuckoo on Netflix which was v hit and miss and Toast on 4od which was v funny but slapstick. Think I'm going to treat myself and buy Pulling. Thanks ladies!

Fresh Meat is free on 4oD. I don't find Toast funny at all.

Thanks for All who suggested Pulling. Bought first series off iTunes and love it. Can't believe fashions etc were so different, it was only 2006 confused. Love the characters and the crudeness shock

Pulling is hilarious, I've got the box set on DVD somewhere - this thread has inspired me to find it and rewatch.

Cuckoo is hysterical I find. Utterly love Greg Davies.

Nighty night, with Julia Davis and Angus Deayton. As for Love,on Netflix, don't click on the film blush

I really enjoyed free agents. It was Sharon Horgan and Stephen Mangan. I think they only made one series and no idea where you can find it. 4od?
