2.0 out of 5 stars Too much filler, 16 Aug 2007
This review is from: Two Ronnies - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
It became more of a chore to watch each programme in series 2. Skip past the 2 musical items in each show and little Ronnie's chair monologues (sorry Ronnie but that's how it is), even the poor Charley Farley serial, and you are left with the items you really want to see (i.e. sketches) spread out much too thinly. There seemed to be less substance to this series than series 1. The best sketches have probably been cherry picked for the "best of" dvds available, but I can't recall one sketch or music routine specific to this series.

From a historical perspective I supose it is nice to have the musical guests in place but I could not sit through any one of these songs, unlike the regulars from series 1 (New World and Tina Charles).

Series 2 also cut out the bizzare circus acts from series 1 (you find yourself laughing at - not with - them). Although of minor interest, I found myself wishing series 2 had something similar to offer in order to give a bit more "added value".

Another feature retained from series 1 is the terrible space/cosmos background when the Ronnies are at the news desk. What was that all about??

The 'Piggy Malone' serial of Season 2 was much funnier than the later ones, like 'Band Of Slaves'. Alan Price and Georgie Fame made a more melodious sound than Tina Charles. I did not detect much 'filler'. The sketches were stronger than those of Season 1, particularly the driving test one. The 'cosmos' background was not intended to have a purpose, it was simply there. I liked it!
