Series 1 - 8. Weirdos Need Girlfriends Too

Radio Times
Review by:
Claire Webb

One of the most refreshing things about this hip US comedy is that the characters are nuanced, capricious and even unlikeable. Most perplexing of all is Hannah’s hunky boyfriend, Adam: is he a complete fruitcake or hiding a heart of gold behind those gleaming pectoral muscles? Tonight, like our long-suffering heroine, you’ll find yourself veering one way then the other after a wince-inducing bathroom scene.

There’s also a guest spot for Irish actor Chris O’Dowd who last year became Hollywood’s unlikeliest heart-throb.
