Notes from the Underbelly
An expecting couple sees how preparations to have a baby change their own relationship and their relationship with their friends.
There's a seed of a good show there, maybe, but it also feels a little too self-consciously quirky to really hold your attention. Some of the observations about married life and the onset of parenthood are sharp, but there wasn't an immediate connection with the central couple. It's also a show without any big stars to pull people in, which will make for tough going on the highly competitive Thursday-night schedule.
