If you’ve not caught the show before, the basic premise behind Benidorm is that it follows a group of holidaymakers, be they regulars or new visitors, at the Solana resort. The writers take little time settling people in before they start having fun with traditional holiday scenarios, hurling their characters head-first into the fun and frolics.
And it all works very, very well. Thanks to its pacey, energetic script, and a plethora of quite brilliant belly-laughs, Benidorm is one of the most deliciously enjoyable comedies that ITV has produced in some time. And a lot of the credit for that too must be aimed in the direction of the cast, who are clearly having a ball here. Johnny Vegas, Steve Pemberton, Sheila Reid and Geoffrey Hutchings are among the highlights, but it’s an ensemble effort, and all the better for it.
Series two of Benidorm features eight episodes, all of which are gathered together here. And with a great deal of rewatch potential, along with some uproariously memorable moments, the chances of you not thirsting for more come the end of the series are really quite slim. --Jon Foster
As good as the first series, and its better than your average recent British comedy, of this real time type.Published 2 months ago by Paul Tapper
