it’s not…

What it says on the tin – ‘Dick’ is ac­tu­ally a per­son.

the Plot…

Adapted from the rev­o­lu­tion­ary fem­i­nist novel by Chris Kaus, the story fol­lows strug­gling mar­ried cou­ple Chris (Kathryn Hahn) and Syl­vere (Grif­fin Dunne) who – af­ter tem­po­rar­ily re­lo­cat­ing from New York to Texas – both be­come ob­sessed with a pro­fes­sor named Dick (Kevin Ba­con). The show’s co-cre­ator Sarah Gub­bins says: ‘There’s noth­ing else like it. It’s so fe­ro­cious and hon­est and you can’t look away from the way in which it’s nar­rated… The jour­ney [Chris] has to take isn’t a pretty one, but it al­lows the au­di­ence to want to be a part of it.’

you’ll Love…

Kathryn Hahn (also known for play­ing Michelle in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days). ‘It’s so bom­bas­tic, fear­less and un­apolo­getic,’ she says. ‘I was so ex­cited to play some­body that messy, mad­den­ing and con­tra­dic­tory. She’s fling­ing her­self for­ward into her de­sire.’

LOOK’S ver­dict

If you’re search­ing for a show that’s hi­lar­i­ous and a bit quirky, look no fur­ther. It’s fresh, un­pre­dictable and cham­pi­ons women. Hats off to cre­ators Jill Soloway and Sarah Gub­bins, who’ve mas­ter­minded a show just as good as the book.

Avail­able on Ama­zon Prime Video from 12 May
