Having loved the first series of Friday Night Dinner I was so pleased to see such a brilliant second series! The farce, slapstick and surreal moments are a joy to watch, and the character quirks are so funny and well observed. I don't usually laugh out loud when I'm watching comedy unless it's something like Fawlty Towers, but this is one of those comedies that gets me into a state of uncontrollable giggles throughout. Mr Morris is incredible, and the scene with Jim and the paint is hands down one of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV. More please!

Wonderful to revisit these characters and find them even funnier than the first time round. Knowing what to expect from each of them adds to the pleasure. This is a series to be watched over and over again, each time to discover new gems.

I saw this before series 1 and have to say it's much better than the first series. Yes, there is repetition, but it works and, while it's nothing wildly new or controversial, it does what it does very well, and the episode with Jim and the paint is reason enough to buy this - and the reason I'll be buying it as soon as it's released on DVD.

Totally agree with other reviewers, this is even better than Series 1.

I think this is a really clever comedy and very well written, it combines the silly slapstick humour with that dry understated humour. I personally always prefer the more dry subtle humour however even when the two brothers start fighting and chasing each other, something I wouldn’t normally enjoy, I find myself laughing and really enjoying it. I think I said the same about Series 1 - the actors are all brilliant and have really good onscreen chemistry, however in this series, I personally think Martin and Jim steal the show. Mark Heap’s acting is spot on at playing the weird but harmless neighbour, and Martin is sort of repulsive in a nice way (if that makes sense) and his performance through the show just stands out.

Hope this show continues for a long time!

After recently stumbling upon this excellent series in its third run on TV, I promptly got hold of the first series on DVD, and found it consistently hilarious. Unfortunately the second time around it has unsurprisingly lost some of its edge, and an over-reliance on farcical situations suggests that it’s perhaps time to find something new. Having said that, the Christmas special episode is pant-wettingly funny, with a surprisingly touching moment at the end, showing that writer Robert Popper is not all about the crass.

Personally I'm not a big fan of this comedy (I identify more with The Royle Family) but my husband & sons love it so I've given the review based on their assessment. It basically surrounds a Jewish family who get together for a meal every Friday evening and naturally not everything goes to plan. Like The Royle Family, it introduces other characters but their favourite seems to be Jim, the next door neighbour. The DVD arrived surprisingly quickly and was wrapped in cellophane so no issues with the purchase.

Love this sitcom, might be an acquired taste in comedy. My family and myself have a really good laugh every time and we have all adopted some of their various sayings. Will purchase other series in the future, Wouk definitely recommend.

Love FND! Remember watching Series One back in 2011 when it was first aired and just had to get this after already having Series 1! Can't wait for the third series to be released!
