    No, you're not. The last batch (including this one) were terrible.

    I watched Our Ex-Wife this morning. Thought it was very good and I hope they make a series. I also watched Home From Home (Jonny Vegas, Joanna Page), which I thought was pretty average.

    Some good sitcom pilots on Iplayer....wait for it.......

    Only a matter of time.

    "Our Ex wife" seemed like it should be a one off as I can't imagine a whole series of that. Just seemed too cliched with no real humour.

    There was a real danger of this being a cliche-fest, but I thought it was very well written and avoided pretty much all of those bear-traps.

    Big fan of Sharon Horgan, 'Pulling' was on of the best sitcoms of the 00s.
