Reviews

Set in and around Manchester, Mount Pleasant is a sitcom that's pulled together an impressive cast to go through quite familiar motions. And do you know what? It works. There's nothing radical, and it's not the kind of show that's looking to push the proverbial formula in anyway, or tackle edgier issues. But it is good fun.

The storylines to Mount Pleasant have a bit of a mild soap opera-ish feel to them, but it's the characters and performances that help lift things. So, there's Sally Lindsay, Liza Tarbuck, Angela Griffin and Pauline Collins amongst the ensemble, who mine good comedy out of seemingly trivial situations. But credit, too, to writer Sally Hooper. She juggles plenty of characters, and puts enough strands into low-key situations to keep things interesting. It's zippy enough too to never outstay its welcome.

Mount Pleasant is never likely to top too many peoples' lists of their favourite comedy dramas, but there's something warm, bubbly and likeable about the show, that means it's likely to be rewatched. By way of extra incentive, the DVD comes with a special behind the scenes featurette, which doesn't go to forensic levels of depth, but is diverting enough. The show itself? It's recommended. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I thought! 29 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
Mount Pleasant is one of the finest comedy/dramas I have seen for a long time.
When I saw the trailer I thought it was going to be rather tacky and I actually wasn't going to bother but thought I'd give it a try. I am a great fan of these sort of programmes and try to keep an open mind!
I was hooked after five minutes. The characters are really believable, not unlike many residents of new-build working/middle-class housing estates!
Glamorous it is not, and that's what makes it so watchable because you can really relate to the goings-on.
It was really pleasing to see Pauline Collins back, she is, by far an outstanding actress and I have always been a fan of hers. She is amazing in this and has been cast very well. Her on-screen husband, Bobby Ball is equally brilliant. They are a valuable asset to an already good series.
In fact there isn't an unlikeable character amongst them and the acting is first-class all round.
It's also very modern and up to date which worried me at first as I thought it was going to be wall-to-wall sex and swearing but I couldn't have been more wrong. Yes, there is bad language, but not just for the sake of it. I feel this is a series that will appeal to young and old alike. The humour is really sharp and I have laughed out loud alot. I totally recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny and really enjoyable! 6 Oct 2011
By as18
Format:DVD
Mount Pleasant was a very pleasant surprise, thought from the adverts it looked amazing on viewing of the first episode I wasn't sure. It's very OTT and filmed in different way to normal dramas, can't quite describe but if you've seen it you'll know what I mean! But, after the first episode I was HOOKED! Watched every week religiously, the storylines are very gripping and interesting. Different ideas too and lots of twists in the story. The show boasts an excellent cast, all of whom really bring their characters to life, brilliantly acted and wonderful script writing. So funny and many occasions it has had me laughing out loud with excellent comedic timing. Cannot wait to have this on DVD wish it came out sooner seeing as the last episode is showing next week. Really want a second series cannot wait to see more from this show, it has lots of potential and has fastly become one of my favourite comedy dramas of all time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, honest and very pleasant 19 Feb 2012
By B. Russell TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
When I started watching this I must admit I thought it was going to be another one of those mundane "we tried but it failed" sort of programmes... but I must admit it really isnt and it really suprised me with it's quality. After just 1 episode I was hooked on the series and couldnt wait for future episodes to be aired. The programmes mixes comedy and drama very well so you get a good laugh, but there's also enough drama in their so that you want to follow the charecters... its the perfect comedy-drama!

The cast of this show where great. Brilliant names including Bobby Ball and Angela Griffin made this show a great triump, with both their presence and their excellent performance - they where funny, dramatic and above all believeable. I must also say well done to the writers they did a great job with this programme. A great mix of comedy and drama writing - perfectly blended with eachover. Well Done.

A really good and honest programme and I am happy to say that a second series has been announced and I will buy this DVD. A great little series :D

this series isn't bad not the best acting but very easy to watch and quite funny, it gets better as the series goes on only halfway through first series, would recommend for easy watching and unwinding after work, quick delivery.
