Sorry, the Tom Jones cameo set me off (he sings Stoke's song and I'm a Vale fan).
Ignore the reviews, honestly it's just people who don't like Corden with a passion, which I don't really get tbh.
I'm not a fan of him nowadays either, I loved Gavin & Stacey and remember he's acted in a load of things back in the day, people seem to forget he was an actor and writer first, so I can't see how they can say his acting is bad.
But he's basically become a plastic yank and a caricature of an English bloke at the same time which is why I'm not a fan. I also think a lot of people don't like his political views (I don't know what they are) since a reviewer on here called him Corbyn...
Anyway back to the review;
Genuinely this is pretty good, there is a few laughs and there's some proper drama and I think anyone who's in a relationship really should watch, no spoilers but honestly it will make you think and be warned it gets a bit dark and affected me in a visceral way due to past relationships.
It's filmed well, there's a good supporting cast and I prefer Corden as an actor than a telly host 100% and I think he did an above average performance in this. But there is always the essence of Smithy in there, I have to admit.
If the first episode doesn't grip you then don't bother, but I can almost guarantee it will.
Ignore the troll hate and make your own mind up, but at least give it a go.
