Still A Laugh Out Loud Comedy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Not Going Out - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
When I heard Not Going Out was coming back for a fifth series,I wondered if it would still maintain the high standards set by the previous four series,after all Lee Mack had set the bar pretty high.But I need not have worried because this series is just as funny,and still crammed full of some of the best writing your going to find in any sitcom.The sheer number of funny lines,and their almost relentless pace,is the trademark of Not Going Out,and of Lee Macks writing.Add to this a cast who now work incredibly well together,know how to set up a joke and deliver it,and youve got all you need for great show.I would also say Lee Mack is a very generous writer,because the number of killer lines given to the brilliant Katy Wix as the brain dead Daisy,is unbelievable.If you doubt me watch the episode where they decide to go camping and end up stuck in the car,theres just one after another.
I know that we all find different things funny,what makes one person laugh will leave another stony faced.I dont think Michael McIntyre has ever once come close to making me smile,let alone laugh,while Ross Noble has me in stitches.So I dont imagine everyone is going to agree with my review,but in my oppinion the series is just as good as the previous four,and it made me laugh out loud,time and again.And at the end of the day,thats what a comedy programme is supposed to do.
