Product description

Product Description

Is there really one Mr or Mrs Right out there for everyone?

Rejoin Alice Chenery in the second series of this poignant BBC romantic comedy as she searches for love, and find out whether her potential partners turn out to be any less bizarre, embarrassing or generally unsuitable than in the first series.

Alice is now an account manager for a perfume counter in a London department store. Millie and Cleo are her sweet, ever-so-slightly deranged staff, keen to see the funny, caring but somewhat reticent Alice find the happiness she deserves - and not above fighting each other in pursuit of their own. This poignant romantic comedy charts the highs and lows of the three girls' quirky encounters with the opposite sex, in search of their perfect match.

Alice's new friends drag her into the world of showbiz. There, her encounters with heartthrob actor Jake Randall, veteran comedian Gordon Bexter, madcap Marty Cady and a German necrophiliac only serve to increase her self-doubt. Could Douglas really be "the one"? Should she adopt the more off-beat attitude to romance shared by her perfume counter colleagues Millie and Cleo? Or could it really be possible that she lost her soul mate?

Most reviewers view this second series as good, but inferior to the first: I disagree.

For me the main weakness of Series 1 was the dual lead characters, with the quite separate scenes which could almost have been separate series. Of course the creative tension concerned the possibility of the 2 lead characters being obviously meant for each other if only they could meet one day. Well for me that wore thin pretty quickly, and I found myself waiting for the action to return to the girls at the perfume counter.

Well the American male lead was unavailable for Series II, which means that we can concentrate on Alice and the girls.... and this is a big improvement. The action now takes the form of a more traditional sitcom, focussing on the hilarious and usually very rude love lives of the 3 girls, whose characters have grown to fill the space left by the male lead. Consistently inventive and sometimes a trifle shocking but always laugh out loud funny.

Put on this DVD, open a bottle of wine and forget about your worries for half an hour or so: terrific.

... BUT - not as good as series 1.

Let's be plain, whilst this is still head and shoulders above almost every other piece of situation comedy out there, it is just not as good as Series 1. The first series was utterly compelling and exceptional.

By moving from a twin track to a single track storyline, a lot of the depth and subtlety are lost. The new half hour format also does not give the stories as much room to breathe. There are still some very touching moments, but we felt the resolution of the relationship with Gill was most disheartening after the wonderful set up of season 1.

Still - very funny and well worth watxhing.

I loved the first series - it was both very funny and original. The second series did not come up to standard - the original idea of two soulmates who had never met was abandoned in favour of a fairly conventional "will she ever find love" scenario, and while it had an occasional funny moment these rested mainly on Alice's two assistants. The main plot relied far too much on drama and too little on comedy.

the second series benefited from episodes being 30 minutes in length rather than the 60 minutes of series one. Dropping the parallel story of Gil enabled the comedy to focus onjAlice and as hers was always the lead story this made for pithier storylines and tighter comedy. Not that series one wasn't funny, or that Gil's story was a mere distraction,, just that one hour for comedy is almost always too long.Both series are highly recoimmemded

A classic - just as good as series 1 but just the girls now... Cleverly convoluted - tantalisingly twisted dark humour ... Some moments are worth rewinding for!!

The two previous reviewers who gave this second series a paltry one and two stars either didn't see it or hadn't the subtlety to see how well it maintained the standards of series one. I agree that it was odd to drop the original plot-line, but I can see why the writer chose to do so. Pursuing a teasing storyline like that (will they meet? when will they meet? If they meet, what then? -- not unlike the Niles and Daphne story in Frasier) can not be allowed to continue beyond a certain point, and it certainly would have worn viewers' patiences thin if it had run through series two. Tamsin Grieg and her two cronies at the cosmetics counter are in themselves more than enough to support any number of sitcom series. The writing is still excellent, and the wit and humour always above average. It's simply shameful to award so few stars, bearing in mind how much really bad TV comedy there is.
