Tv Season Info

After the death of his father, a pub landlord and local legend, Stephen (Mitchell) -- whose only achievements so far have been marriage, followed by divorce, and a slightly disappointing refurbish of a pub -- finally has a chance to shine as he is set to take over the family business. But his plans are interrupted when the charming Andrew (Webb), a former foster child briefly raised by Stephen's parents, turns up out of the blue at his father's funeral and is eager to renew his relationship with the closest thing to a family he has ever known.

Anyone missing the biting humor of Peep Show, or anyone who's simply looking to delve into a quick comedy that deals with an odd power struggle should be pleasantly surprised by Back.

Back, rather than embracing life's constant barrage of disasters, breaks out an oversized, Holmesian magnifying glass so these grievances can be analyzed and mulled over with all the perverse pleasure of picking pimples in the mirror.

While Back is brutal in places, and some of the lines are thrillingly blunt... it has a deft touch where necessary, in small enough doses to make it touching, but never sentimental.
