It’s a Date – TV Review

 

headerItsAdate

The latest offering from Pete Helliar gives us a whole bunch of dates over eight weeks. The good, the bad, the ugly and so much more. At the time of writing, we’re only five episodes in, but have seen the delightful pairings of Denise Scott and John Wood, Asher Keddie and Stephen Curry and Kate Richie and Nadine Garner. The show is cleverly written and beautifully executed. It is far more subtle than I expect from Australian comedy – quite often, I find our comedies are filled with overly obvious stereotypes and ridiculous plots. This is far more gentle, far more real, and (perhaps because of this) far more funny. I can’t wait to see what is left in store.
