Critic Reviews for Hang Ups: Series 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

At the core of the programme are such old-school virtues as strong central performances, good jokes and an impressively starry supporting cast.

Away from the slightly overcooked domestic problems, the online therapy sessions look like they will offer rich comic territory, with a raft of quality cameos including Richard E Grant and, as the hero's testy father, Charles Dance.

April 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, Hang Ups successfully uses comedy to shed light on the importance of mental health without crossing the line.

It's inventive and funny, and every so often, a total screaming joy.

The way the set-up of each episode is underpinned by several micro-interactions is promising, and one highlight is seeing [Stephen] Mangan briefly reunite with fellow Green Wing alum, Karl Theobald.

I should imagine that practitioners will roll eyeballs at its flagrant liberty-taking. But taken with a pinch of salt, Hang Ups is a ribald skewering of the talking cure that's almost too much of a tasty treat.
