Remakes of British sitcoms in America are not often blessed with success. Indeed, the whole thing itself has been the subject of its own sitcoms. Hopefully, this remake may stand out well.

Based on Julia Davis’s sitcom released in 2016 for Sky Atlantic, and co-adapted by Lena Dunham, it again follows a group of friends embarking on a hellish camping holiday. There is some British talent starring in this with David Tennant appearing, but if you are a fan of the original you may well not be keen on the fact that some of Davis’s trademark darkness appears to be removed.

Camping is on Sky Atlantic with a double bill beginning at 22.00.
