Very Clever and Funny Series
on 25 August 2008
... BUT - not as good as series 1.
Let's be plain, whilst this is still head and shoulders above almost every other piece of situation comedy out there, it is just not as good as Series 1. The first series was utterly compelling and exceptional.
By moving from a twin track to a single track storyline, a lot of the depth and subtlety are lost. The new half hour format also does not give the stories as much room to breathe. There are still some very touching moments, but we felt the resolution of the relationship with Gill was most disheartening after the wonderful set up of season 1.
Still - very funny and well worth watxhing.
