Warm, funny, and surprisingly well written
16 April 2018 | by coletteafrin82See all my reviews

Not a huge fan of Roisin as a rule, sometimes find her comedy a little too "wacky" and avoided this in case she played her character from Man Down again.

However, this was a pleasant surprise. Had a rainy day and watched the entire first series in one sitting.

The writing is good, the themes are amusing, and you care about the characters. Some good plot devices using life coach and driving lessons to move the story forwards.

The jokes may be a touch crude for some, but I felt they were the right side of tasteful and was nice to see a character grow but not change entirely.

Fantastic acting from all supporting cast and great to see Pauline McLynn shine again.

An easy watch with some laugh out loud moments.
