Surprising comedy with touches of drama,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jam and Jerusalem - Series 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
It takes an episode or two to get used this this comedy/drama from Jennifer Saunders. I wasn't quite sure at first how to take some of the characters - particularly Dawn French. But I warmed to this heartfelt comedy set in a small Westcountry village. The stories of the women of the WI are entertaining, but also tinged with a touch of sadness.
Sue Johnston is superb in this series... the glue that holds the whole thing together. Dawn French - endearing as always and Jennifer Saunders one liners were well timed and added nice touches to lighten some serious moments.
Well worth buying and sitting back and relaxing at home with. We found after we navigated the first episode or two we wanted to watch all the way through. For fans of French and Saunders this is a must, but also worth purchasing if you like a good well acted, well scripted comedy that also has a lot of heart.
