Daisy May Cooper's twisty new sitcom is both heartbreaking and completely hilarious

The interactions between women whose children go to the same school are a rich source of black humour – just look at Sharon Horgan's excruciating sitcom Motherland. Now it's This Country co-creator and star Daisy May Cooper's turn to explore the joys and tensions of friendships between mothers in her new BBC series Am I Being Unreasonable? She stars as Nic, who lives in an English village with her nice but disengaged husband and their young son Ollie – profoundly lonely, her isolation is underpinned by a secret she can't tell anyone. But when she meets Jen (Cooper's real-life best mate Seline Hizli, who also co-wrote the series), a cool, kind and witty new mum at Ollie's school, Nic's ability to suppress the truth is tested.

"It's a cliche to compare a dark, female-led sitcom to Fleabag, but I don't think I've watched something since that swings so devastatingly between laugh-out-loud comedy and gut-punch heartbreak," says Stylist contributor Moya Crockett. "Cooper is nothing short of brilliant as Nic: bawdy, fond of reality TV and falling apart inside. Like Fleabag, AIBU? gradually reveals its protagonist's secret through agonising flashbacks – creating genuinely sinister, thriller-style suspense as you start to question whether Jen can be trusted. But it's hilarious, too, with a perfectly observed script and not one dud performance (Lenny Rush as Ollie and Juliet Cowan as Nic's cleaner Viv are particular supporting standouts). A triumph." 9:50pm tonight, BBC One and BBC iPlayer

Immerse yourself in the world of a pop culture powerhouse at the V&A's new exhibition

Squid Game. Glow Recipe. BTS. Gochujang. BlackPink. Parasite. Dr Jart+. Gangnam Style. Kimchi. From our kitchens to our bathrooms to our living rooms, there's no denying that the influence of South Korean culture has skyrocketed globally since the late 90s – and now the V&A's final exhibition for the year is shining a well-deserved spotlight on the country's impact on multiple aspects of our life with this weekend's opening of Hallyu! The Korean Wave.

Displaying over 200 items across four themed sections, cinephiles won't want to miss the immersive recreation of the Kims' squalid miniscule bathroom from 2020's Oscar-dominating film Parasite, while Squid Game fans may well have a visceral reaction when they spot the pink guards' costumes from last year's Netflix smash hit. Unsurprisingly K-pop and its diehard fandoms also features prominently, with the addition of an interactive dance challenge where you can show off your choreography skills to the infectious earworm That That by none other than Psy (he of Gangnam Style fame) and Suga from BTS. But while the fashion, beauty, entertainment and celebrity sections are fun and fascinating, it's the initial 'From rubble to smartphones' area which charts the history behind the war-ravaged country's journey to becoming a cultural and technological behemoth that's the most revealing. Don't be surprised if South Korea shoots to the top of your travel bucketlist after your visit. 24 September 2022 – 25 June 2023; £20; V&A, Cromwell Rd, London SW7
