Sharon Horgan

TV: Motherland, BBC2

The pilot of Motherland went out last year and was one of the best pilots I've seen in recent memory. But then that's no surprise.

TV Review: Catastrophe, Series 3 Episode 2

I'm not surprised last Tuesday's edition of The Nightly Show fronted by David Walliams struggled in the ratings. Breaking news of the discovery of intelligent life on Mars (or in the White House) would struggle if scheduled opposite Inside No 9 and Catastrophe. So it'll be interesting to see how John Bishop's Tuesday show this week will do.

TV Review: Catastrophe, Series 3

The honeymoon is definitely over. Series three of Catastrophe picks up at the point where Rob has found a receipt for the morning after pill. In an earlier scene at the end of Series 2 Sharon had drunkenly ended up with a younger, frankly sexier-than-Rob man. So where do they go from here?

As I said the honeymoon is definitely over for the fiery couple. And in a way it feels as if the honeymoon is over for the series too. This is certainly not a backlash review, but this episode feels darker and more serious than before.

Interview: "She was just a wonderful, wonderful person." Sharon Horgan & Rob Delaney on Carrie Fisher And Catastrophe.

We left series two on something of a cliffhanger, with Rob about to speak following his discovery of Sharon’s receipt. Where do we pick it up from?

Rob: Right then. Exactly then.

Sharon: Yeah, it’s from exactly that moment.

Did you know what Rob was about to say, when you shot the end of series one, or did you still have to work that out?

TV Review: Divorce, Sky Atlantic

I’m sure I read somewhere that Sharon Horgan writes about the stages of life she has gone through. So there was Pulling, then Catastrophe and, more recently the team effort Motherland, which is being turned into a series after a brilliant pilot. So what does that say about Divorce, her collaboration with its star Sarah Jessica Parker for HBO?


TV Review: Catastrophe, C4, Episode 2

I’m worried. You want to know what I’m worried about? I’m worried that I’m going to run out of new nice things to say about Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney’s screwy screwball relationship comedy (with occasional screwing). And I’m worried that I might run out of different pictures to run with each glowing review. So far this gem of a show, now quickly into its second series, has not put a foot wrong.

TV, Catastrophe, C4

I feel as if I have been waiting most of my life for a comedy that reflected my romantic experiences as an adult. And then finally along comes Catastrophe starring and written by Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, which feels so well-informed about my relationship with my partner and also my friends and nearest and dearest that I’m starting to think they’ve bugged my phone, hacked my computer and, at this very moment, are watching me through binoculars from the house over the road.

Classic Interview: Stephen Mangan & Sharon Horgan in Free Agents

Sharon Horgan and Stephen Mangan are pretty much established as two of our favourite comic actors. Horgan is riding high in C4's Catastrophe, Mangan is busy on various projects, including making Birthday for Sky Arts, a spin-off of Pregnant, the play he appeared in in which he plays a pregnant man. This interview dates from 2007 when they were shooting a pilot for a C4 sitcom set in the world of showbiz called Bitter and Twisted, but then changed to Free Agents. It ran for one series and deserved more.
