On the Verge of a Midlife Cri­sis with Sharon Hor­gan

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, 8.30pm, ABC2 Lis­ten up, fel­low wrin­klies. In this pro­gram English co­me­dian Sharon Hor­gan finds out the best way to deal with midlife cri­sis. It is great when you have no ex­pec­ta­tions, and a daft and hereto­fore un­known English funny woman un­ex­pect­edly makes you laugh out loud. Mind you, I wouldn’t want to raise your ex­pec­ta­tions. I mean, it’s on ABC2 on a Wed­nes­day — how good can it be? But just re­serve the pos­si­bil­ity in your per­sonal plan­ner. Ac­cord­ing to Hor­gan, who is burst­ing with such apho­risms, 40 is the old age of youth while 50 is the youth of old age. She says we are all very fa­mil­iar with men in midlife cri­sis. ‘‘ They start chat­ting up women on Twit­ter, or panic-buy a sports car,’’ she says, fondly squeez­ing the bon­net of some­thing fast and ex­pen­sive. ‘‘ But what about women? What does a fe­male midlife cri­sis even look like?’’ Hor­gan meets six fear­some women de­ter­mined to pin it down. Not a mil­lion miles from Agony Aunts but not nearly as bit­ter as Grumpy Old Women.
