Review

Sharon Horgan’s young Irishwoman meets a handsome American stranger (co-writer Rob Delaney) in a bar and embarks on a wild affair that they both know will end when he heads back to the US. Problem is, she then falls pregnant and they decide to stay together and keep the child.

It’s a premise that isn’t as far-fetched as it sounds. She obviously needs the support, while he is adamant that his kid will have what he didn’t – a dad who sticks around.

It’s grown-up, rude, the sex scenes are hilarious and the two leads have a genuine rapport in a comedy that has you rooting for this odd couple all the way through, whether it is meeting her ghastly friends or coping with the medical scares that accompany her pregnancy. There are verve, panache and real things at stake here.

Summary

New series. Irish schoolteacher Sharon meets American advertising executive Rob in a London bar and her subsequent pregnancy is just the first of many problems they encounter. Comedy, written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, with Ashley Jensen and Mark Bonnar.
