Review: Josh, BBC3

It's one of those quirks of scheduling that the new series of flatshare comedy Josh has dropped on the same day that the new series of Curb Your Enthusiasm started on Sky Atlantic. There's definitely a touch of the Curbs in the way that Josh is plotted and also in the way that whatever can go wrong in the main characters' lives will go wrong.
