Strong sexual references and coarse language
Love as it really is... with farts, bickering and toast
Steve and Becky are young, unemployed and lazy. All they want to do is eat, drink and have sex - so they do. They don't want to get a job - so they don't. They're happy to spend their days watching DVDs in Steve's bedsit, but they're constantly interrupted by Dan - the lonely bloke from upstairs, Laura and Paul - Becky's sister and her fiance or, most frighteningly for Steve, Becky's parents.
Him & Her reveals the hilarious and often shocking truth of what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings. And, to be honest, today's 30-somethings. And 40-somethings. And 50-somethings. And 60- and 70- and 80-somethings... Because we all secretly wish we too were young, unemployed and lazy.
An anti-romantic comedy, Him & her lifts the lid on love as it really is - warts and all - with farts, bickering and toast.
Episode 1 – The Interruptions Steve and Becky are doing their usual thing– staying in bed and just about to have sex. Their plans are scuppered, however, when Laura turns up panicking because her fiancee Paul has stayed out all night. Steve just wants Laura to leave but has to cover for Paul ... and neighbour Dan wants to get melons. And eat them with spoons.
Episode 2 – The Birthday It’s Steve’s birthday and everyone wants to go out and get plastered - except Steve. He’s ill in bed. Or at least he tells his mum and everyone else he is. When Becky, Laura, Shelly and Paul can’t persuade him to go out and celebrate, Steve stays in and - with a little help from Dan - makes very good use of his presents.
Episode 3 – The Fancy Dress Party Paul’s son, Little Luke, is out of hospital and is having a fancy dress party. Steve and Becky have to go. They don’t want to. Becky dithers over her spot. Steve can’t get through to his bank. And when a furious Paul comes over to see why they’re so late, and what’s happened to the sausage rolls, it seems like they have no option but to go.
Episode 4 – The Football Everyone’s trying to watch the match between two local teams. Except Steve, who’s bothered by a dream he had about Becky and her ex. And Laura, who’s bored. And Paul, who is miserable after his mum’s shocking news. The afternoon couldn’t really be going worse until Steve comes out with what appears to be a ‘racist’ comment.
Episode 5 – The Parents It’s a Sunday and Becky and Steve are bored. Their fridge is broken and Becky’s parents are coming round to fix it. Steve’s never met them before. He’s terrified. When they arrive, he’s over-friendly and frankly a bit odd. Matters are only made worse by Dan, who’s audibly enjoying himself upstairs with his new girlfriend, Paris. At least, he says she’s his girlfriend.
Episode 6 – The Argument Steve and Becky are drunk and arguing. They storm back into the flat, soon followed by their even drunker friends and Jamie, Becky’s oldest friend. While everyone drinks Steve’s drinks and eats all his food , Steve tries in vain to deal with Becky and her obsessive friendship with Jamie. Eventually he can’t take it any more and locks Becky in the bathroom. He has something he really needs to get off his chest.
