Just when you thought British sitcom couldn't get any worse, ...

I don't know who thought this would be funny or clever, but it is neither. It is hard to feel any empathy for a single character: the stupid and ineffectual father-to-be who has done nothing to prepare for the imminent birth, the pregnant woman who acts like the worst stereotype, the gay father who is not as staid as fathers usually are, the ex-wife who is standing for election, the neighbour who builds a pagoda naked and cuts off his thumb, ... I could not believe any of them would exist, nor why the writers thought I might.

It is a horror story cliché that characters do the opposite of what they should, but at least there is an element of twisted logic. Here there is nothing. In the midst of a crisis, the lead actor locks himself in the bathroom, but allows two others to join him. Was he trying to escape the situation or share it more widely? Needing a vehicle to transport two people to hospital, they try to use a severed thumb to start a two-seater car while a camper van sits idle a few metres away.

The actor whose previous glory was arguing with a chicken about eating pork must be regretting this disastrous attempt to further her career. The more established cast have no excuse, though, for this pointless exercise.
