Synopsis

Michelle is 26 years old, living in Manchester's trendy Northern Quarter with her beautician friend Claire, dating Dean and hurtling towards her thirties. When Michelle's brother Mike lands on her doorstep with his ironic (ie rubbish) record collection and best friend Grant in tow, it all starts to get very complicated. Dean wants an open relationship with Michelle but Michelle, infatuated with Dean, certainly doesn't, Grant is infatuated with Michelle; Mike can't stand Dean; and Claire, well Claire is concerned with maintaining her tan and trying to stick to her nutritional detox. All of them are trying, unduccessfully, to be grown ups.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two pints later... 17 Feb 2007
Sheridan Smith's character, Michelle, is almost identical to her previous role, Janet in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, so I found this series a little odd to watch.

In fact, the whole sit-com is in the Two Pints style, but sadly, I didn't find it as funny as Two Pints.

There's an interesting variety of other characters though, and they are quite different from the Two Pints ones, so perhaps subsequent series will be better as the characters develop.

By the way, Olivia Blair's review is for the American programme "Grown Ups" (1997), and not the British one, "Grownups" (2006). Her review also appears to have been copied directly from Wikipedia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmmmmm Sheridan Smith..... 2 Jun 2010
I love 2 Pints of Lager & a Packet of Crisps, so that was the original attraction to this series, unfortunately it's not quite in the same league but then it never claimed to be. I enjoyed it once I got used to the lovely Sheridan Smith as the new character, my suggestion would be to give it a try and the characters a chance, it will be worth it, a nice series with a more mellow humour than expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very average sitcom but likable 15 Dec 2010
You will only like this sitcom if you can set your comedy standards down to a minimal. While the plots arent too bad and better than some silly ones i have seen in previous series, the jokes (funny jokes) are few and far between. However with there being 3 series of the comedy it total, they do get slightly better each time so this one would be worth watching just to make you appreciate the following 2 series.
