This review is from: People Like Us - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Finally the 2nd series of People Like Us is available in the UK! As all fans of series 1 will know, this 2nd installment keeps the exact same format of a mock documentary show that profiles different professions and follows the people involved.
Such is the completely authentic approach and style of the episodes that some people have mistaken this show as being for real. Because of this the humour is easily miss-able as the programme does not deliver punch-line type humour. Instead the laughs come from the conversation between the interviewer Roy Mallard and the interviewee - you have to pay attention to the questions and answers to get the giggles - and they do come thick and fast!
I often think of People Like Us as being one of the forgotten and most underrated of recent comedy series but its sheer subtlety and authentic feel/set-up makes it one of the most enjoyable shows of the past 10 years.
