Irish comedian Aisling Bea's new series This Way Up has received rave reviews after it debuted on Channel 4 on Thursday night. The comedy stars Bea and Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan.
Bea plays the main character, Aine, who is taking steps to rebuild her life after her stint in rehab by teaching English to foreigners. Her sister Shona is played by Horgan, and it is through her relationship with her sister that her mental health issues are explored.
These are some of the reactions to the series, both from people who watched the single episode or who have binged on the entire show online at Channel4.com:
