    Anyone watching this? I find it hysterical. Premise, "married" couple with kids (they are actually unmarried, but might as well be), and their travails with parenting in the 21st Century. It stars Martin Freeman (from the first season of Fargo among many other projects).

    Been watching since E1. Funny at times, dramatic at others.
    Funny when the dad gets frustrated at his son.
    I was very surprised at one episode.

    It always cracks me up how he curses right at his kid(s). I liked the relationship between the parents on both sides and the family.

    Apparently Brits have no problem dropping the F-bomb when berating their kids

    I've been watching and enjoying it. I initially tuned in for the two main actors. I wish we still had more

    Love this show. Martin Freeman is the best. Not sure why Michael McKean did not do his Spinal Tap accent.

    Yeah, kind of shocking. But I really feel for these characters.

    I hate it when a comedy gets "Blossomy".

    You knew that the boy would pull through. But it was well written and acted and you can feel the fear in each of the characters. Paul's dad cracks me up every time. His whole bit when he was babysitting the daughter had me rolling. "What's a nugget?"

    I hadn't realized that Ally's boss was married. I always had the feeling he would try and hit on her, no matter how hard he tried not to. But one of the things I love best about this series is you can just feel the warmth between the characters and Ally and Paul make a convincing couple. I look forward to this show every week. I'm hoping it's back for another season. I'm going to miss it.

    Loved the ending as well and agree Paul's dad is a trip.
