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!
