KEEP­ING THE SPARK ALIVE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't Miss This Week... -

THERE’S so much to like about this new TV com­edy, cre­ated by and starring Peter Hel­liar, who part­ners with Lisa McCune (both pic­tured) as Greg and Emily But­ler. He works at Births, Deaths and Mar­riages, and spends his work­ing day grit­ting his teeth through the te­dium of the job and hi­lar­i­ously an­noy­ing ‘cus­tomers’ who want to change their names to things like Pe­nis Wil­liams or Libra Fleur (like the san­i­tary nap­kins). She has been a stay-at-home mum of two daugh­ters for 14 years, who finds her­self dream­ing of an iden­tity and life be­yond mak­ing the lunches and watch­ing When she ap­plies for a job, let’s just say the in­ter­view doesn’t go as planned and in all the ex­cite­ment she “sneeze pees” – a term that will be fa­mil­iar to most mums. The sup­port­ing cast is like a re­union of with a su­perb cameo by Ju­dith Lucy. This is in a mar­i­tal rut, with acutely ob­served comedic mo­ments. A nice start.
