Ok so I'm a 19 year old female student, I mention this only to (hopefully) show that this appeals to many different groups of people. My friends, my parents and I love Miranda. I rarely laugh out loud at things but every single episode I have seen of this makes me crack up at some point. I love Miranda's awkwardness and clumsiness - in my opinion it makes her more relatable and believable as a character. Yes it is a little OTT but I think that's part of the charm. Also the looks to the camera. I know some people hate it but the fact is from the start she acts like's she's talking to an audience so it seems like she needs to interact with them at some point and I like the way it makes it seem like you are sharing in the joke or pain with her. The supporting characters are wonderful. The eccentric friend/collegue, the snobbish 'friends',the unnatainable love interest and most especially the horrifying mother. So it's definitley worth a watch in my opinion.

Miranda Hart, famously funny in other people's shows finally gets her own series. This is comic gold. If you haven't been able to watch this show on the BBC, this will be your chance to laugh out loud. Pop culture meets slapstick meets good old fashioned humour and the only victim is Miranda herself, as the butt of her own jokes. It almost borders on pantomime comedy.

Miranda is not shy about 'breaking the fourth wall' and interjects the dialogue with comic asides to the viewer. Sometimes a look is all that is needed to make you smile. You're on her wavelength, you've connected. Result.

Add in a small but perfectly formed cast of friends and family and the interaction is superb.

At 6'1", Miranda Hart is a tall lady and she plays on this stature by being ungainly and awkward around people who are more normally proportioned. You will begin to notice trends in every episode but they never become predictable.

I enjoy being a part of Miranda's world. When she turns to the camera to express herself, she's addressing me, or so it seems.

Delightfully rich with expert timing, this should not be missed.

At the time of writing, the first series was still airing on the BBC. Four of six episodes have aired. 'Date', 'Teacher', 'Job' and 'Holiday'. I have watched them all. Viewing figures are encouraging for this series and I predict that word of mouth and an early series repeat prior to the DVD release will see the viewing figures increase. Series two should have twelve episodes. Six are just too few.

Way to go BBC on supporting and encouraging new comedy talent such as this! Keep it on BBC 2 please, it doesn't deserve to find it's way down to BBC 3 where alternate comedy drivel struggles to raise heckles let alone laughs.

This is an excellent series, original and very funny. I hope she does a second series as I'm very much looking forward to it. I love the way Miranda makes fun of herself, and it's refreshing to see different jokes and the camera asides that she does. Tom Ellis is put into quite a few uniforms making him more alluring for the girls.

Deserving of a five star award, and not just for girls. Even my boyfriend liked it and thought it was funny.

Miranda is just an absoloutley brilliant show! I hadn't heard anything about the show but found it accidentally while channel hopping and found myself laughing hysterically outloud at it, which I don't do with many comedy shows. Miranda Hart has got to be the most lovable person on television and I find her absoloutley halarious. There have only been three episodes so far and I've already caught on to it and look forward to it every monday night! I can't wait for the rest and will defianitly be getting it on DVD when it is released.

I strongly urge anyone who hasn't seen it yet to give it a try. Utter Genius!

I watched the first episode of Series 2 last night and have logged on today to check whether my copy of Series 1 is on it's way yet (not quite...) because now I really want to watch the first series all over again.

I love sitcoms - mainly American ones. But it takes something pretty special to make me laugh out loud, wipe away tears of laughter, shout encouragement at the screen, cheer and go "awwww" quite as much as I did watching Miranda last night.

The first Series was great - especially the episode where she goes on "holiday" round the corner from her flat. Great sympathetic characters, loads of visual and verbal jokes, never takes itself too seriously (in fact it's very silly) but never goes for a cheap laugh either. Enough in-jokes and catchphrases to allow familiarity, but not so many that they breed contempt. And Miranda herself is just brilliant!!!

And then there's Gary.......ahhhh.....

If last night was anything to go by, the new series is going to be at least as good as the first. Let's hope we don't have to wait another whole year for it come out on DVD!

Such fun!
