This Close (Sundance TV) – Premieres 14th February
A comedy drama that follows two deaf friends Mathew and Kate. The first ep has the pair meeting up to go to a book signing in Seattle for Mathews new graphic novel. Where Mathew has no urge to go due to him recently splitting with his fiancé, while Kate is hesitant in revealing that she has just got engaged herself.
After finding her engagement ring in the hotel Mathew ends up leaving the book signing early to head off to a gay club, then ending up getting kicked off the flight home for being drunk. Then when the pair are in holding they have a laugh over the shambolicness of the proposal Kate went through and every ends up sort of good.
As comedy dramas go it’s not too bad, where the jokes mostly focus on the awkward nature of able hearing folk interacting with them in certain situations. While it’s slow going, it’s an easy bit of viewing.
