Critics Consensus

Devastating, hilarious, and surprisingly light, This Way Up captures the complexities of mental health with an empathetic -- if at times wandering -- eye.

Audience Reviews for This Way Up: Season 1

    Groanfest. If you like ultra political correct comedy and hearing the same message we see in adverts, films, media, supermarket posters forced into your face like a weinstein. No thanks, wanted to like it but I had to turn off after I had so many eyerolls I felt like they would get stuck up there.

    Been done before. Boring and irritating

    Phenomenal show! Reminded me of Fleabag but more wholesome, Catastrophe but without the main relationship. The main character is hilarious and I love the sister relationship and the will they/won't they plot line. The mental health struggles of the main character rang true. Also love the South Asian representation!!

    This is such a funny and raw show. It can get a bit cringe at moments, but we've all had those awkward experiences in life. Great cast, and well worth watching!

    Post-Catastrophe catastrophe

    Brilliant show. Very funny, whilst tackling serious topics. Aisling and Sharon are brilliant as creaters and actors

    I watched 6 episodes in a row and enjoy it. Aisling rocks!

    Fabulous acting, plot, pathos, wit, and warmth. I can't wait for hopefully, another season.
