5.0 out of 5 stars Terry and June 2, 6 April 2011
This review is from: Terry & June - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Terry Scott and June Whitfield star in this second series of "Terry and June".
This is an entertaining bit of farcical comedy that has a lot to offer.

This second series was recorded in 1980. It continues from the first series as Terry and June are now settled in their new house. There are six very good episodes and an extra bonus Christmas special episode.

Terry gets a new car, but then it goes missing in the first episode. There is a funny second episode where Terry gets in a terrible mess when he gets his secretary to organise a surprise present of a ring for June. There is more farce in episode three when Terry's Nephew Alan comes to stay which leads to both Terry and June getting in trouble with the Police. The couple take up Disco Dancing in episode four and June gets a job which leaves Terry to cope with all the things he took her for granted for in episode five and there is classic comedic moments in the last episode when June takes up the Cello, much to Terry's frustration. The Christmas special is also a good episode. Just like all the episodes this one has a story that is easy to guess how it will develop, but it has classic farce elements as Terry helps a friend by hiding a Christmas present of a fur coat. June convinces Terry to only spend 5 on Christmas presents but then accidentally discovers the fur coat and excitedly thinks it for her.

At the time of its transmission, and for all of the other eight series, Terry and June was often mocked and scoffed at. It was criticised by some people as being too corny and old fashioned. It was traditional comedy and not "alternative". Other people loved it. I really liked it back then and have even more respect for it now. It may not be non stop roaring with laughter comedy, (what show actually is like that?) but it does have some very funny moments. Terry and June Medford are an ordinary middle class couple who live in suburban Purley. Terry is accident prone, helpless and over ambitious. June is his long suffering wife who has to cope with the mess that Terry gets into.
Terry works for Sir Dennis Hodge who often calls at the Medford's home just at the wrong time.
Terry is well intentioned but many misunderstandings lead to a lot of farcical situations and Terry and June always get into complications trying to get out of the situations they find themselves in.

June Whitfield is excellent and Terry Scott is also very good with his comic expressive face and timing. Both Terry Scott and June offer us a warm and inviting performance.
This second series is a good classic comedy that should not be forgotten.
