Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This humor-filled but sensitive semi-autobiographical romcom offers an honest story about a young woman who is trying to find her way while still struggling with insecurities brought on by her past. It doesn't offer an idyllic picture of two people newly in love, but instead highlights Mae and George's flaws, and points to the challenges they must overcome if they have any chance of holding on to each other. They are also extremely likable, as are most of the people around Mae, allowing viewers to appreciate her struggles without much condemnation.

It's well written, and what transpires throughout Feel Good isn't completely rooted in Mae Martin's standup routines. As a result, the narrative feels fresh and original. The appearance of great secondary characters, played by notable actors and comics like Sophie Thompson, Phil Burger, and Sindhu Vee, adds to the entertainment value of the show. If you're looking for a mature, heartfelt comedy, this one is worth checking out.
