Because the characters and the milieu are well observed--"The Bisexual" does for London what "Girls" did for New York--and naturalistically rendered, the show is moving, at unexpected times, if you have lived much life at all, or even thought about it a little.
Where [Sally4Ever's] Sally’s crisis outrageously flowers into absurdity, Leila’s is the basis for a droll study of friendship and desire, with tenderness in its millennial moping, and emotional depth to its embarrassing emotional pratfalls.
