Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Thanks to the transformational success of their hit mockumentary series The Office and Extras, Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais are forever linked. So for Merchant, branching out on his own -- not only in his first starring role but without his longtime creative partner -- marks a big step toward his developing some professional autonomy. The result is awkwardly funny, much like Merchant, which stands to reason since much of the dialogue is based on his real-life experiences wading through (and towering above) the L.A. social scene. Still, it's tough to root for a main character whose heart always seems to be in the wrong place.

That said, you do end up hoping that Stuart will someday get a clue and realize that the real "Mrs. Right" could be right in front of him. Still, we can't see Jessica going for it -- and that would also mean the show would be over.
