When powerhouses Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are executive producing Out of Her Mind, starring stand-up comedian Sara Pascoe, you know there’s something to like about this show. This genre defying fourth wall breaking British program made its debut on BBC2 and residents of Western Canada are lucky to get an early exclusive. It’s broadcasting on Telus Presents, and this streaming service is available to OPTIK and PIK TV subscribers.
Unlike The Office or Malcolm in the Middle, this offbeat work is not just about Sara providing commentary on her life. We are literally looking into her mind. She’s chiding her conscious self for those gaffes and explains why her actions are a result of misfiring thought processes and chemical imbalance. No, she’s not going through menopause.
