Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

Cuckoo (UK)

the series philosopher cuckoo wikiCuckoo is a British sitcom which began airing on BBC Three on 25 September 2012. Written by Robin French and Kieron Quirke, it stars Greg Davies, Andy Samberg, Helen Baxendale, Tamla Kari and Tyger Drew-Honey. Cuckoo is set in Lichfield, Staffordshire (external scenes are mostly filmed in Slough), home to the Thompson family. When Ken (Davies) and Lorna (Baxendale) collect their daughter Rachel (Kari) from the airport, they learn that she has returned from her gap year having married Cuckoo (Andy Samberg) – an eccentric American ‘hippy’ with an all-loving attitude, who does not have a job and loves to take drugs.

The series launch became BBC Three’s most-watched comedy launch, beating the record set by Bad Education which debuted the previous month. On 10 October 2013, it was announced that an American remake of Cuckoo would be made.
