Hold The Sunset

It was interesting to see John Cleese return to terrestrial TV comedy last night in Hold The Sunset. I just gave the first episode a second viewing, and to be honest I think it shows a fair amount of promise. The premise is quite modern, casting Cleese as a man in a relationship with a divorced woman, whose grown up son suddenly decides to move back in. While I don't think we can expect any Fawlty-esque outbursts from Cleese, I think this situation gives him the potential for a few of the displays of manic exasperation he is famous for. In what we saw of Hold The Sunset last night, I think there is scope for it to make some great commentary on modern life. I could see glimpses of the greatness Cleese is known for, as well as a fair amount of potential. One to keep my eye on, then.
