This Way Up - Aisling Bea

This Way Up (formerly known as Happy AF) starts on Channel 4 on Thursday August 8th at 10pm.



Aisling Bea plays Aine, a whip-smart TEFL teacher trying to pull her life back together after a "teeny little nervous breakdown". Sharon Horgan ('Catastrophe', 'Pulling') plays her older sister who not only worries about her younger sibling but also about her own life choices. The TEFL school where Aine teaches brings together a room full of characters also trying to find their own hope, direction and happiness in this messy world.

Only know Bea from her stints on QI, but she always got a laugh from me. Will be taking a look...

I thought she was the one who did that "if people say women are unfunny do a poo!" thing and avoided watching this as a result but I realised I was mixing her up with someone else.

I enjoyed it too, thought they worked very well together. Good script, decent pace- I'll definitely watch the rest.

It was okay. It has potential anyway. Did think Bea overacted some of it, particularly in the classroom bit which was just OTT.

There are people who behave like that though.
