5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I thought!, 29 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Mount Pleasant - Series 1 [DVD] (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
