5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Written, Exceptionally Performed!, 12 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lip Service - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I actually prefer S2 to S1 because I feel that the writing of S2 was much more challenging, complex and sensitive, not to mention, mixing it all up with humour, too! Because the character development was structured so well for each character, rich with fantastic dialogue & multi-dimensional personality traits, the actors automatically stepped up to the plate and performed ever so exceptionally especially how those difficult non-verbals spoke volumes, giving us viewers a front-row seat of how these characters' innermost emotions were played out. The performances were so real that I forgot that these characters were fictional. I found myself totally immersed and invested in these characters because I could relate to their characteristics, attitudes, behaviour under certain given circumstances in their lives because that's life. I'm sure we've all come across these characters through our friends, family members, neighbours, colleagues or even ourselves. It's life as we know it. It's not pretty. It's not always fine and dandy. It's a journey. It's a process. And Harriet Braun managed to give these characters such realistic depth and breathe life to them that the actors inherently became the characters they played.

I cannot wait for BBC3 to re-commission a 3rd series. It'd be criminal if it's not. I, for one, would be very upset and disappointed with BBC if there wouldn't be another series. I really want to see how these characters evolve in the next steps of their personal and professional lives.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
