Even better than the first series,
This review is from: Cannon and Ball - The Complete Second Series [DVD]  (DVD)This was the first series which Sid Green wrote for the boys (Morecambe and Wise co-writer before Eddie Braben) and is an overall improvement on the 1st series released last year. Some of the shows in the series are better than others but overall the quality of material benefits from a high class writer writing all the material. Its a variety show format with musical guests/star guests/sketches and stand up. This was similar of other shows of that time, Morecambe and Wise/Little and Large etc.
The xmas special in particular is very strong and was after the second series as an one off special and shows the writer has learned from workins with the performers over a series and is all stand up material with some guests.
Lets hope the later series are also released.
