Radio Times review

When it's good, this simple-seeming sitcom about brother-and-sister flatmates is very good. The best laughs come from Charlotte Ritchie as Hannah, an amoral, arrogant, self-centred cow who, in spite or because of those qualities, you could happily watch all day long.

The way Hannah blithely takes a pulled pork sandwich into a doctor's appointment or praises her own good looks ("Look at me - I'm a solid nine, nine and a half") is both horrifying and endearing. She shares a flat with her layabout of a brother Dan (Tom Stourton), who is so impressed by the news that employees at Hannah's workplace get free birthday cake, he takes a job as the world's most annoying office cleaner ("Pretend I'm not here").

David Butcher, Radio Times, 4th January 2016
