    Its worthy of all the accolades. Barden’s performance is a tour de force — right up there with ODAAT’s Justina Machado.

    I am confused if Netflix wants this to be taken seriously as a contender.  It is one of seven programs for which they have already sent the complete season to voters, but it is not listed as one of their main six comedies on the FYSee website and is instead just one of the rest, e.g. in the same group as Disjointed.

    Thanks to the recommendation of some guys on these forums, I binged this today. What a great find. It took me about 3 episodes to properly get into it but from the point in the 3rd episode where the stakes get raised it gets properly riveting.

    First off, it’s 100% a comedy. I do not know what happened at BAFTA. Yes it obviously has darker moments and some drama but so do all the best comedies (see: Fleabag). Tonally, it’s constantly trying to get laughs and the 20-minute format only adds to that.

    Performance-wise, Lawther should be getting nominated even though he won’t be. It’s a brilliantly internalised but also regularly hilarious performance. Barden is just as good but doesn’t deserve to be nommed purely because her category is a bloodbath where I can name at least 10 brilliant performance. A surprise comic standout for me was Gemma Whelan. I found that the introduction of the police in the 4th episode really lifted the show as it gave us more perspectives away from the main two and these were often the funniest scenes. Scene of the series though (comedically) has to be the scene at the gas station. Hysterical.

    Overall: thanks for the suggestion folks because this, although flawed like most, is almost definitely cracking my Comedy Series top 7. I just really hope they don’t try and make a second season. A-

    I will give this show another try. When I watched the pilot, I throught that was more a tumblr-gif vehicle than a good and dark comedy.

    Agreed. The ambiguous ending must remain. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
