Like the one-hour Life’s Too Short movie that aired in July 2013, the Hello Ladies movie is an attempt to give finality to the cancelled series co-created by and starring Stephen Merchant. In this case that means if you’ve seen the series when it ran last year for eight episodes, you’ll be on familiar ground here. There’s a lot more of Merchant’s nerdy expat Stuart’s awkward, uncomfortable and failing search in for love in LA that made up so much of the show — this is just a longer version with a very Oscar-level cameo I won’t spoil by revealing. Not that there is really much else to spoil about this offering from Merchant, who co-created with Ricky Gervais the British version of The Office and Extras.
