Watching her son taking the piss out of pop stars on the telly makes her dead proud. It's the only thing that gives her joy and she records every episode.

She's not really his mum, she's funny Rebecca Front , who can act a bit. Can Simon act, though? Well, it's hard to know really, given that he's essentially just being himself. It's not exactly playing King Lear, is it? Unless you happen to be King Lear. But he is likable in spite of clearly being quite pleased with himself.
As he was on Buzzcocks. So what you have is a fairly traditional sitcom, with someone being himself at the centre of it, got it? It does take a bit of getting your head around. Maybe think of it as a kind of British Curb Your Enthusiasm. No, that's clearly ridiculous, an insult to Larry David.
But it does sort of work. Amstell is funny and the other characters are good. I especially like cousin Adam, who's about 13, has recently decided he doesn't want to be an independent financial adviser when he grows up, and enjoys visiting a website called Interracial Creampies don't check to see if it really exists if you're at work, as I did — I'm expecting the tribunal any minute.
And Simon's mum's new fella, Clive, who, as Simon says, is a prick. Grandma's House is sharply written, with some nice lines and a bit of edge to it. And every now and then it will throw a little surprise at you — like grandpa's cancer well, it may not be; last time he had cancer it turned out to be a raisin ; the fact that Clive once ran over and killed a tramp; and Simon's cousin Adam disappearing upstairs to shave his head.

Worth pursuing, I think. Unless you are amused by people getting drunk, shagging around, and getting Stanley Matthews and Bernard Matthews muddled up. What is this sudden plague of new sitcoms by the way?

I thought they were supposed to be over. This is much more basic fare than Grandma's House, and funnier if you are actually drunk, probably. Never trust a comedy with a pun in its title, that's the rule. OK, I confess I did laugh when the two square community police officers dipped their disco biscuits into their tea quite fiddly, given their size.
And then again the next morning when they're at work but still wazzed off their baps on E, a car alarm goes off and they're straight back up there, shaking that ass in the street.
