Three­some

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 8.40pm, SBS Two I’ve come late to the party for Bri­tish sit­com Three­some be­cause I feared it would con­tain yet an­other set of cliches about gay par­ent­ing (see Mod­ern Fam­ily ) and un­con­ven­tional re­la­tion­ships. In fact, though it does pro­file three closely bonded adults rear­ing a child they all adore, it is re­ally very sweet and oc­ca­sion­ally laugh-out-loud funny. As well, there is some spot-on phys­i­cal com­edy. In this sec­ond se­ries episode, in a se­quence wor­thy of Lu­cille Ball, mother of the child Alice (Amy Hu­ber­man) rather stupidly gets stuck be­hind a fridge. Her res­cue does not go well and the group de­clares the fridge evil. But when they try to dis­pose of it in a stor­age unit, all hell breaks loose. Much warmer and fuzzier than the premise may lead you to be­lieve.
