OK. No more, no less.,
This review is from: Trollied - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This isn't a bad comedy but it isn't great. The acting is really good but the writing is a little hit and miss. The best episode is the first where there are some really good laugh-out-loud moments but each subsequent episode becomes a little dry.
One thing where the writing is strong is with the characters, very believable melded beautifully with a great cast but the comedy isn't the strongest point. Jane Horrocks' character is the sit-com's cringe one, very much in the light of "The Office" or "Allan Partridge" and too much focus is given to this very sad pathetic character and provides the real mire of this series.
In far too many places it felt like I was simply watching events unfold in my local supermarket and as such was far too grounded in "realism" to be funny.

I agree with you about Jane Horrocks's character -- she was just depressing.
