3.0 out of 5 stars Sitcom by numbers
This programme has its moments but, for me, overall fails to really engage. It lacks the shades of grey that should exist between the black and white.

It's somewhat dated in the technique that the lead character is the good guy (well gal), surrounded by numpties. Life isn't like that. A little more drama and less sentiment would have increased the spark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quentin at her best, 12 Aug 2010
This review is from: Life Begins: Complete Series 2 And 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Good quality cast base, with truthful acting and storyline. Caroline is amazing as ever and on top of her game. There is such a diverse range of thematic issues explored that there is something for everyone, and no its not all about sex picky! Amazing buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny rom-com with a sad twist, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life Begins: Complete Series 2 And 3 [DVD] (DVD)
In this, series two and three, we catch up with the central character (played by Caroline Quentin) as she makes a new life after her divorce from cheating husband (Alexander Armstrong). Will she find new love? Will she have him back? Will the kids go off the rails? Has her father got dementia or is he just forgetful? This delightful series, with lots of well-developed minor characters, is such a pleasant change from all the endless murders that pass for TV drama these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good series, 10 Oct 2010

Caroline Quentin is terrific in this series. The series shows how a family breakup really does change the dynamics within a family and how a stay-at-home mom can become the real bread winner for the family. It's balanced with some funny moments and sad moments and I truly recommend this series to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Begins, 4 Oct 2010
This review is from: Life Begins: Complete Series 2 And 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Halfway through watching Series 2, having just finished Series 1! An excellent, very real to life series. Maggie struggles with her teenage family, her dominant mother, her forgetful father, her husband - who she still has feelings for, her new boyfriend - the school teacher, her job, plus everything else life throws at her.

The actors play the characters superbly, with a well written script. Brought back memories of watching it on tv the first time around.

Practically impossible to stop watching, sometimes we watched 3 consecutive episodes. Did not want it to end. The cast were top notch and so believable.

I watched this when it was originally on TV and thoroughly enjoyed it so had no hesitation in returning to it again. The acting was excellent - I think Caroline Quentin a fine actress and she doesn't disappoint in anything she does. It was so good to revisit this great TV series and would definitely recommend it
