Bucket (2017-)

2017 | UK | Frog Stone | ★★★

Frog Stone's refreshingly female-dominated Bucket is a likeable and generally diverting but rather unremarkable BBC Four sitcom, featuring lively performances (particularly from Miriam Margolyes) and enjoyable if somewhat familiar-feeling storylines.


"Mim (Miriam Margolyes) is an eccentric free spirit who believes 70 is the new 40. Fran (Frog Stone) is a reserved high school history teacher in a rut. They are also mother and daughter, and their relationship is not exactly easy. When Mim reveals she is dying and wants to go on a trip to fulfil items on her bucket list, Fran feels that she has no choice but to come along for the ride. Fran and Mim have to try to come to terms with their past and their future as they tick off items on Mim’s preposterous list, one by one." BBC
