With the world still very much caught in the grasp of Covid-19, England is back in lockdown for at least four weeks. But it's not all doom and gloom, because with the return of lockdown comes something a little more fun... our Moustache Streaming Survival Guide is back, and this time we've got a hilarious comedy series for you.
As always you can check out the other instalments in our survival guide by clicking here.
Sam Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is a recovering alcoholic living in Seattle. He may be sober, but he has a bad attitude and is generally pissed off at the entire world, something he seems to take out on almost anyone. As a substance abuse counsellor he leads the local Alcoholics Anonymous group, and the quirky misfits who attend often bare the brunt of his negativity. In fact the only person who he's nice to is his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), who has a few issues of his own to deal with.
From Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort comes a hysterical yet sobering look at sobriety, one that never makes the mistake of mocking addiction or recovery. Addiction may not be funny, but the situations Sam Loudermilk and his friends get into will have you giggling throughout. They say nothing is funnier than real life, well it helps that most of what occurs on the show is at least grounded in reality. But it doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of addiction either, in fact it confronts them head-on, even if it means the main characters taking a backseat for an episode or two. Everything from the successes to temptation and setbacks, to the group meetings and the sponsor/sponsee relationship, even what to call the new "new guy" when 'New Guy' (Ricky Blitt) won't give up the title, it's all on the table here.
The first two seasons of Loudermilk are available on Amazon Prime. A third season has been completed but due to a studio closure hasn't aired yet, and there are plans for a fourth.
