10:00am – Thursday, January 1 on ABC2
Thursday, 8 March 2012 In this sharp but charming comedy series, Simon Amstell (the real-life former television presenter of the hilarious UK pop quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks) plays a version of himself – a television presenter who is quitting his job to try to do something more meaningful with his life. In each episode, Simon and his family congregate at Grandma’s house to catch up.
In the third episode, Simon announces he has fallen in love with the actor Ben Theodore: “He’s the only person I could possibly be with in my life. He’s so talented. And thin.” He’s also read a book that has him convinced he might be able to control the universe.
Meanwhile, Grandpa has invited Tanya’s old acting coach, Deborah Adler, to tea – she just happens to have been Ben Theodore’s coach too.
And Aunty Liz goes to extreme measures to try to get Adam into a new school.
