Com­edy 10.05pm, ABC2

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Best On The Box - – TA

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.
