2.0 out of 5 stars Something changed between 8:1 and 8:2, 24 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Terry & June - Series 8 Volume 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I have been watching all the Terry and June DVDs up to Series 8 Volume 1, for the past year. (I hadn't realised there was a Volume 2 to Series 8 until recently, nor that there was a Volume 9).
I received Series 8 Volume 2 today, and there is a world of difference between the programs on this DVD, and Series 8 Volume 1! It's as if Terry and June are five years older, Terry is genuinely angry all the time, and the scripts are nowhere near as good as 8:1. Does anybody know why this is? There is a noticeable and marked difference in 'feel' between Series 8 Volume 2 and Series 8 Volume 1, and I found these episodes very disappointing. All the actors seem to have lost their magic, which they had in the earlier series. Terry's boss is completely different, even from the first moment he appears, in the second programme, he is a different man (as it were). It's as if the entire DVD has been 'BBC-fied' - i.e. turned into the pointless rubbish 'comedies' that they started churning out in the years after Terry and June. (You know, the sort of comedies that simply weren't funny, and that got an audience purely because they were shown during peak viewing hours, and people watched them because there was nothing better on the other side).
Here's hoping that Volume 9 is better.
