I thought it would never arrive.

It's taken a long time for this series to appear but at last it's here! Much better than the first series (Which was excellent!) The characters are well defined and the actors really seem to enjoy being in this show. One of the things I remember about this second series was how much fun it looked to make. Everyone seems comfortable returning to their characters and the plot lines and situations are much more comedy driven than series one. Beautifully written and wonderfully acted.
Lots of laughs and a nice gentle atmosphere runs all the way through this show. If you don't laugh out loud, you'll smile warmly from the opening credits to the end.
Look out for the episode where Bill teaches Hannah to drive. If you look carefully you can tell they are on a low loader because Hannah keeps changing gear with the handbrake.
Sounds daft, but this just makes the show even more endearing. It never took itself seriously and always entertained the way that a good family sitcom should.
