Trying

Recommended Posts

Quote

All Jason and Nikki want is a baby, but it's the one thing they just can't have. So, they decide to adopt. With their dysfunctional friends, screwball family, and chaotic lives will the adoption panel think they're ready to be parents?

On Apple TV+

Is anyone else watching this?  It has 2 seasons and looks like it's been renewed for a 3rd.  I checked out as I wanted to see what's available before my free trial expired.  I'm enjoying it.  A couple of recurring characters portrayed by actors I was a little surprised at.

As a big Rafe Spall fan I love it.  Definitely enjoying Esther Smith in this more than I did in her previous series "Cuckoo".  Very sweet and heartfelt show. I would think those who love "Ted Lasso" would love "Trying" if they give it a chance. 

I really enjoyed how the second season focused on the other characters a bit like Nikki's sister.

Yes yes yes - I've been hating that there wasn't a thread for this show, but I don't know how to start one. So thank you!  I love this show. I also was looking for something to watch that was similar to Ted Lasso to see if I wanted to pay for Apple Plus before my free trial ran out.  We have family who have gone through the adoption process in the US, so I know how difficult it is here. I'm enjoying seeing the process in the UK. Imelda Staunton is excellent in everything, but I really enjoy the harried social worker with a heart of gold and quirky sense of humor she's bringing. I had seen Rafe Spall in other things but never realized he was Timothy Spall's son. Seriously one can play six degrees of Kevin Bacon with UK actors based on the Harry Potter movies alone. Like with Ted Lasso, I enjoy the side characters here as much as Jason and Nikki. Looking forward to season 3!

So glad someone started a thread for this show! Absolutely love it especially as someone who looked into adoption in the past as an option to build my family. Really looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.

Love this show!  I’ve searched for it before on these forums so imagine my surprise when I searched today and it showed up. Hurray!  I’m not familiar with any of these actors but I love them all. Nikki’s accent and how her voice goes up at the end as if every sentence is a question usually kind of annoys me but I find her adorable. Im not yet done with season two but this is a really cute show.

I just finished season two yesterday.  I really liked it.  Interesting twist on the sister and her fiancé/now husband.  Relationships are complicated and so are the people in them.  No one should judge.  I think it’s awful that they would break up Princess and her brother, I mean shelters don’t even like to break up kittens but it’s ok for human beings?  This world is so screwed up.

Does anyone know when season three will be available?

Likely about the same time this year. They've not begun shooting yet.

I so liked the chemistry between the sister and the parent and I was rooting for them because Karen has always seemed cold on Scott. Series one it was almost as if she was just putting up with him, so the idea of her finding someone who wakes her up, I was sure they would end up together. But I guess it's a nice message that some people just have prickly or discordant personalities but it doesn't mean they're uncaring or not engaged in the relationship.  A bit like series one where Jason's ex Jane played by Cush Jumbo lamented that the person he is now is who she wanted him to be when they were together.   Karen realized Scott could be that person she wants him to be.
