Salvaging a cockup....nearly,
This review is from: Love Soup - Complete Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Series 1 was up there with Faulty Towers, Porridge and Only Fools and Horses. Then the BBC bottled it and didn't commission series 2, 3 and whatever based on the original premise where Alice and Gil would probably meet by the end of seies 2, and then take it from there. The BBC executive who dropped the ball at this point must be the son of the Decca A&R man that failed to sign up the Beatles.
As a result, by the time Series 2 was commissioned, Gil had to be written out because the actor, Michael Landes, was no longer available. As a result, we now follow only one storyline, so viewing time has been halved, putting the new series into more familiar sitcom country. Even so, it remains very funny..certainly if series 1 had never happened, this would still be the best thing since Del Boy went off the air.
