All thirteen episodes from the first and second series of the BBC mockumentary comedy following the trials and tribulations of the team responsible for staging the 2012 London Olympic Games. Narrator David Tennant guides the audience through events as Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and his support team, including PR operative Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes), Head of Sustainability Kay Hope (Amelia Bullmore) and straight-talking Yorkshire man Nick Jowett (Vincent Franklin), take charge of a £9 billion budget. In the first series, the team must somehow keep the event on track as they face confronting challenges including horse dung oriented protests, what on earth to do with the Taekwondo hall after the games and sports stars with a desire to help but absolutely no personality. In the second series, the team have to deal with a dispute over the Shared Belief Centre when both Algeria and France threaten to withdraw from the Olympics.

I desperately searched online and read the reviews which tended to be mainly in the broadsheets and on the strength of just one episode I did the unthinkable and bought the boxset!
I could write all day about the characters, the quality of the acting on show here, etc, etc, etc but it is the writing which is just sheer satirical genius. I really cannot single any one actor out as the whole ensemble is just fantastic, each with their own catchphrases which never seem corny or forced.
Jessica "totally" Hynes, Olivia "not a problem" Coleman & the wonderful, wonderful Karl "Classic!" Theobold are just three of the superb actors who deserve a special mention. If you are looking for a witty, hilariously brilliant, laugh out loud, clever comedy, then PLEASE watch this!
Beware of the ending though as you will be left begging for more which although frustrating for the viewer is exactly how a comedy series like this should end. Many comedy series have troughs and peaks but one of the main things I love so much about Twenty twelve is that every episode is as good if not better than the last.
In my top 3 of all time now and as Graham Hitchens would say a "Classic!"
It's also nice to have something to fill a half hour slot if the T.V. programmes are uninteresting at times during the evening.
Certainly, its core cast of six characters is (for me) right up there with the lead players in series such as The Thick Of It and The office. Hugh Bonneville's is probably the pivotal (and funniest) performance here as Head of Delivery, Ian ('It's all good') Fletcher - his dead-pan delivery and reluctance to be flustered no matter whether he has Seb Coe or Boris Johnson shouting down the mobile at him is a joy to behold. Not far behind Bonneville is Jessica Hynes' 'PR disaster' Siobhan Sharpe ('from PR firm Perfect Curve', the dulcet voice of narrator David Tennant repeatedly reminds us) - Sharpe's dumb, rambling incoherence and unwillingness to make any positive contribution must have been a living nightmare for all watching fellow PR consultants. Thereafter, each of Vincent Franklin's dour Yorkshireman (is there any other type, I hear you ask?) and Head of Contracts, Nick Jowett, Amelia Bullmore's nervy Head of Sustainability, Kay Hope, and Karl Theobald's incompetent geek and Head of Infrastructure, Graham('What? This Friday?') Hitchins, are all excellent.Read more ›

This was a gift to my father and he laughed like crazy.
I am glad I bought it.
Hilarious and in some cases even brave (not always 100% politically correct). Gives a great picture of professional life in the South East.Published 14 days ago by Cell29
