I think Miranda Hart herself was a little worried about this second series, not really knowing if the public would be as thrilled the second time round.It was logical that she should be. Last year she surprised most in offering a sit com that hadn't been done for years and that many (me among them) found pure comic genius.I just adored her character, so full of human frailties, so full of warmth.When I sat in front of the first episode I must admit I thought to myself 'Can she do it again? Has she had time to garner some new ideas and make a show that will be both similar to the old one in everything we love about it but that will also spring some good surprises?' The first two shows, although they contained some great moments made me fear the second series would be inferior but then... came episode three... I must have watched it twenty times at least by now and it still makes me laugh. I can't tire of it. From the moment Miranda and Gary stepped into that posh restaurant and from the moment I saw Miranda's face after Gary suggested they should give it a try it was firework after firework of sheer enjoyment, from the fire, to the burps, to the 'al dente' moment, to the bees, to the wax trapped Miranda, to the stallions in her flat, to her mother's "Go Miranda".... it must have been 20 years since I laughed that much.... Simply brilliant!! Yes, of course, the episode with the psychologist is the weakest but on the whole, Miranda Hart has managed to do what I thought she couldn't... she has surpassed herself! And as long as she is willing to lull us with that wonderful voice of hers, I will be willing to listen...

I simply cannot get enough of Miranda and the second series is no different. It's funny, suitable for all the family and actually really clever. A few people (snobs) slag it off saying it is immature and idiotic but that is just because they haven't given it a go and embraced that a bit of silly humour never did anyone any harm! Funny, funny stuff and puts a smile on my face every time.

Miranda is brill but so are all the other characters making it one of my favourite sitcoms of all time. Hooray for Miranda Hart!

My only gripe is that it's taken sooo long to be released on DVD as I have watched the first season too many times to admit to! Cannot wait for the third season. SUCH FUN!

The good news is that Series 2 of Miranda is still charming, warm hearted and full of really funny moments and set-pieces. And yet, away from the set pieces, the writing is beginning to feel a bit predictable - cue a faux pas from Miranda, or her falling over, or looking knowingly at the camera, or bursting into a song; or Stevie doing Heather Small; or Tilly spouting yuppie nonsense. And the "will they won't they" with Gary is getting a bit tiresome - but you know they never "can" because that would spoil the innocent charm of Miranda's longing.

All that said, the show is still fun to watch - funny, with a great cast, and some really original ideas. We love it in our house: it just feels a little more familiar round the edges.

After the brilliance of the debut season it was always going to be hard to create something better for Season 2 and this proves that the second series of anything is a bit like that difficult second album. The dilemma, it seems, is much the same - stick to the tried and trusted formula that worked so well before? Or come up with something new and fresh and risk the people who loved you the first time around abandoning you faster than you can say 'What fun!'?

For the most part, Miranda Hart has opted here for the former and, in doing so, has come up with something that ploughs pretty much the same furrows as the first series. There's nothing wrong with that - it works, to a degree, whilst never troubling the original series' inventiveness or innovation. And the truth is that if you liked series 1, there's no reason at all why you won't also enjoy series 2.

The problem, though, is that none of the characters appear to have developed very much. We don't expect Miranda to have become less clumsy or awkward, but I had rather hoped that Stevie might have become marginally less irritating - and that the scripts might not have continued to have been contrived in order to give Stevie (Sarah Hadland) the opportunity to do the rather irritating Heather Small impression in every episode.

Sally Phillips is, as always, outstanding - so, too, Patricia Hodge.

But there are fewer laughs here than in series 1, fewer moments of inspired physical comedy, fewer clever pieces to camera. It's almost as though Hart has suffered from TV exec pressure to write a follow-up quickly and, in doing so, has had a smaller pool of genuinely funny ideas on which to draw.

It's still funny. You still want to watch every episode. You just don't howl with laughter quite so much.

I loved the first series of Miranda, and I loved this series even more! The comic timing of Miranda Hart gets better and better, and I think this is funnier than the first, I was in stitches! My partner finds the humour a bit same-y and repetitive, but I think that is what gives this series its charm and comedic value! Similarly I also liked the development of the supporting characters, as well as seeing more of Miranda as her best!!

I think fans of the first series will not be disappointed!
