Anyone else here watched the first episode, or planning to? It's a new BBC3 sitcom starring Andy Samberg and Greg Davies. That alone should have most transatlantic comedy fans intrigued, no?
|Cuckoo is set in the Midlands, home to the Thomas family. When Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale – Cold Feet, Kidnap and Ransom) collect their daughter (Tamla Kari) from the airport, they're horrified to learn that she's returned from her gap year with more than just a henna tattoo and braids in her hair. At the arrival gate, she promptly introduces them to her new husband, Cuckoo (Andy Samberg) - the squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja who is now their son-in-law.|
Cuckoo is every parent's worst nightmare - a slacker full of outlandish, New Age ideas. Ken and Lorna have no choice but to welcome him into their family home - and if every Englishman's home is his castle, then this hippie has stormed Ken's fortress and plundered everything, most unforgivably, his princess.
