Has anyone else watched this? It is dire, one of the worst things I have seen for ages. I have persisted because I like Ben Miller but I think I will give up

I had a long train journey so downloaded the first 4 episodes. What a load of sexist dross. The dialog makes Last of the Summer Wine look like Phone Shop! (Was nice to see Javone Prince on the BBC, even if only for 4 seconds.)

I gave up after the restaurant episode last week , it was dire every week but when you have to actually suspend all belief in reality it's gone too far and I'm pretty sure that if you hit someone over the head in an unprovoked attack that sends than into cardiac arrest that the police would be called ! It's a shame because I like Ben Miller but what with this and the Tesco ads I'm beginning to question his judgement .

I can't believe him or Ruth are doing those cringe worthy tesco adsshock

I watched episode 1 and thought, this is like some nasty, grubby tale of a controlling, stalker twunt of a h on mn.

I like Ben miller but I can't stand the character, what an idiot. He's just a sort of hapless helpless twat who can't do anything right, annoys me

I like the dog.

Makes Norman Wisdom look sophisticated and modern!

It's as though it's based on a 1950s French farce.

My prediction: In the last episode either Bex or Murray will tell all the lunatics to SOD OFF and it will be a big cathartic moment. (Probably Murray, because Bex doesn't say much, why would a 40 year old woman expect to have the tiniest bit of control over her life?)

A normal person would have told all the interfering in-laws, friends, colleagues, book club harpies etc to SOD OFF the first time.

I go to a book club with all women where we don't discuss the book for very long, what an awful portrayal! In fact every single woman in the show is an unsympathetic nightmare.

<damn, I have watched too much of it, I have to finish it now!>

Best thing: the dog.

Worst bit: literally everything else about it.
