4.0 out of 5 stars A nice way to warm those winter blues..., 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: Benidorm - Series 6 [DVD] (DVD)
I'm not going to say that Benidorm is pure comedy genius and that we should all buy and watch it over and over again, and I admit that there are many comedies out there which are better than this. However, what Benidorm manages to do is, for 45 minutes, bring you in to a place where you can forget all your worries and pains and just have a good laught. The comedy works well as it places disfunctional families in arkward situtations and then just lets the humor commence.

What I will say, is that I think Series 6 is much better than the previous series, as a few fresh faces have brightened up the comedy, that seemed to suffer in Series 5. The relationship between Tyger and Michael has given the show a new dynamic, which I like and think works well. Also, I love Sherrie Hewson as the hotel manager in this show, her quirky personality works so well against all the other charecters (many of which are quirky in more ways than one).

So, by no means is this the best comedy of 2014, but it is lighthearted, warming and sends you off to another place you don't want to come back from when the 45 minutues is up... good thing there are seven episodes to enjoy. Note though, for those of you who currently have none of the previous series you are probably better of going for the Series 1-6 boxset, for completsits who already have series 1-5, this is your best best.

I'm taking it that she has been watching this show on TV and I don't see why she can't make a review afterall it is the programme she is reviewing not the actual DVD, which I can guess will be like all the others, a circular disc, silvery looking on one side, printed matter on the other and it plays in your DVD player....... just like all the others !!!!

I think if all 7 episodes had actually been aired, writing a review before the DVD release would have made a bit more sense, but at the date of the original review only two episodes had been shown.

For all the 'reviewer' knew the next 5 episodes might have been the worst TV ever made!

Thankfully in my opinion this series has improved a lot since the first episode in early January and I am rather sad about the fact that the final episode airs tonight.
