Nighty Night.. don't let the bedbugs bite!,
This review is from: Nighty Night - Series 1 & 2 Boxset [DVD] (DVD)
I first came across this series not knowing anything about it. Which I think is the perfect way to enter this dark (and I do mean dark) world that is NIGHTY NIGHT. Julia Davis (the star and creator of the series) plays Jill Tyrell, a sociopathic, manipulative woman who upon discovering her husband Terry has cancer decides to move on and find someone new. Soon her eyes are set upon a doctor named Don. Unfortunately for Jill, Don is married. His wife Cath suffers from MS and is sometimes wheelchair bound because of her condition. But does this stop Jill? Hell no! Jill knows what she wants and nothing will get in her way come hell or high water. The series pushes the boundaries of comedy with it's unapologetic look at the character of Jill and how far she is willing to go in order to get what she wants.
Bizarre, disturbing, and often shocking, NIGHTY NIGHT may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it sure beats a lot of other shows out there.
