Comedy 10.05pm, ABC2
For a show that tries, unsuccessfully, to be Mrs Brown’s Boys – this new British series stumbles on to a recipe of its own that is surprisingly watchable. Simon ( Simon Amstell) is a down-and-out porn star, forced to live with his Grandma ( Linda Bassett) after losing everything.
The series kicks off with a hint of promise for Simon, who has a shot at the D-list in an upcoming BBC comedy.
Of course his ambitions are halted somewhat by conflict with his relatives – but somehow the result is comfortable, rather than predictable, television.
