| A nice idea, but underwhelmingly executed
Somewhere in between the homely comfort of 'Gavin and Stacey' and the doom-laded chaos of 'Pulling' comes 'Hometime', a new BBC comedy, about Gaynor, a woman who returns home after 10 years away to discover nothing has changed. Cue masses of Britpop on the soundtrack, and some good lines, although set against a background not so much deadpan as catatonic: the set up is convincing but the interaction between Gaynor and her long lost friends seems strangely devoid of energy. It's a shame, because there's a great idea in here somewhere, but a comedy about a depressed person is maybe always going to struggle; if you think about it, most comedies tell the story of outrageous optimists, and for good reason. The series ending is clearly an attempt to set up a second run; but I was underwhelmed by the first.
