Nothing but the best,
This review is from: Cold Feet - The Complete Collection of ColdFeet [DVD] (DVD)
Occasionally there is a series or programme when everything comes together as near perfectly as can be imagined - acting, writing, production and so on. Cold Feet is one such series.
You know how it is when you meet old friends and there is a ready familiarity that only long friendship can give? That is how skillful this series is with its writing, acting and production; there is a sense that though it is clear the actors worked well together, they may have gelled off screen as well. How that is achieved in this wonderful series is a study in itself. The writer's consistency is remarkable as he tells the story of these characters through so many agonies and ecstasies of life. Cold Feet never descends into the trivial or maudlin, never tries to get laughs just for the sake of laughs, but shows true sensitivity to the natural comedy of life as well as the difficult and tragic.
All elements are woven together so very well by all concerned and, as a previous reviewer has written, these people become friends from whom it is difficult to take one's leave at the end.
It was probably wise to stop at five series; few can tell when things are going to degenerate if production continues, but Cold Feet went out on a high and there are elements that keep you watching to the final frames.
One of the best of purchases that will be on and off the screen for us for many years.
There are interesting bonus features with this DVD, too.
