“Don’t worry Rachel, I’m a sad girl too.” These are the words said to me by a kind friend earlier this year when I hit a bit of a rough patch during the UK’s third national lockdown.

Watching Channel 4 and Hulu’s This Way Up Season 2 feels exactly like that fellow-sad-girl-friend reaching their arm around you to remind you you’re not alone after all.

In the very first episode of the new season, Aine (Aisling Bea) tells her sister Shona (Sharon Horgan), “It’d be nice to be in bed with someone at night other than my pile of shit boyfriend.” And by “pile of shit,” she means the literal pile of detritus that’s accumulated on the side of the bed she doesn’t sleep on — a familiar sight to anyone whose homes have ever become a reflection of the state of their mental wellbeing.
