I started watching Feel Good coz I have a crush on creator/star Mae Martin who is not only hilarious but looks like a hot Peter Pan.
Imagine my delight when the show turned out to be actually funny. Brit comedy light. Awkward in the best way with occasional real feels.
If you liked Crashing you’ ll probably like this show. And I mean Crashing the UK series, about 20 somethings’ living in an abandoned hospital, the less famous but still charming cousin of Fleabag.
NOT Crashing the US series, which as far as I can tell (from the teeny blips I’ve seen channel surfing) is about a straight white guy trying to make it in the world of stand up. BOOOOOOOO no one cares. Shame on you Judd Apatow for being involved.
Lisa Kudrow has a choice cameo as Mae’s uptight mother but mostest fun is Sophie Thompson as Mae’s batty NA sponsor. And she’s Emma Thompson sister! I never even knew that was a thing or rather a person.
The object of Mae’s desire starts off kinda drippy and the romance very PG13. Lots of kissing and spooning and not much else.
But George (I had to look it up) works for the story and the comedy and they start showing more realistic ‘girl on girl’ sex but with just as much awks.
So if you need a break from the apocalypse (IRL or on any number of TV shows) this makes a good palate cleanser. You can easily gobble it down in one sitting.
