Triple Comedy Award-winner Miranda Hart brings us Miranda Series 1 on DVD.
Miranda is desperate to fit in, but her public school background makes her a bit of a misfit, especially compared to childhood rival Tilly (Sally Phillips) and the rest of 'the girls' (not least because she's a foot taller than them all). She can’t seem to quite grasp how to behave socially and constantly fails to avoid embarrassing situations, especially around men, specifically Gary (Tom Ellis) her old friend from Uni. A constant disappointment to her mother Penny (Patricia Hodge), and lacking any real capacity or interest for business, Miranda employs her childhood friend Stevie (Sarah Hadland) to manage her joke shop, within which Miranda is at her happiest, playing with anything from Pirate Hats to fart machines.
Despite blowing her whole inheritance on a joke shop and employing childhood friend Stevie to manage it, Miranda is desperate to fit in; a near-impossible task with her over-bearing mother, Penny's, constant attempts to marry her off. When long-term crush Gary Preston returns from his travels, Miranda bumps into him and, anxious not to make one of her usual conversational cock-ups, talks all about her Olympic gymnastic achievements and her two children, Orlando and Bloom. Surely everyone ends up lying to impress when they're nervous, don't they?
After an impromptu "date" is planned, Miranda decides to "Trinny and Susannah" herself, and takes a trip to the new "bespoke" clothing store, Transformers, picking an outfit guaranteed to stop people calling her sir to her face. A reluctant lunch with newly engaged Sloane Ranger school friends Tilly and Fanny leads to a wedding dress shopping bonanza and leaves Miranda looking like she's had a chiffon-based anaphylactic shock, witnessed by a delighted Penny and rather terrified Gary.
It doesn't matter what Miranda attempts in life – be it dating, trying to cancel her gym membership, or simply dealing with her overbearing mother--she always seems to fall flat, quite literally, and is incapable of leaving a room without knocking something over.
SynopsisMiranda Hart’s farcical, affectionate, laugh out loud sitcom introduces us to a woman desperate to fit in, and lead a normal life. But…
Miranda finds it impossible to stand up to her eccentric mother Penny (Patricia Hodge) who makes embarrassing and desperate attempts to marry her off. Her rivalry with boarding school chum and PR Sloane Tilly (Sally Phillips) gets her in to all sorts of trouble as she can’t help but lie to impress her; and worst of all her hapless pursuits of long-term crush Gary (Tom Ellis) means she always ends up flat on her face-- literally in most cases. All her old friend Stevie (Sarah Hadland) does is stand back, laugh and unhelpfully point out where she is going wrong.

To all the people who gave it only one star -- fair enough. That's your choice, and I think it's marvellous that we can all differ. Live and let live is what I say. And we know we're being shallow. There's a time for shallowness, just like there's a time for profundity.
I don't mind at all people saying they hate the show and can't bear to watch it. They are entitled to say that they think it's awful, badly written or anything else -- although they might care to contemplate its popularity. And I know that popularity is no guarantee of quality. But comedy is a social phenomenon. We laugh at what our friends laugh at. We don't all have the same friends. And we don't all have the same experiences. If something resonates with us, if Miranda Hart's style of comedy rings true, then it is probably because we share a common fund of humour. Perhaps we have a bossy, snobbish and silly mother that we love in spite of all that. Perhaps we were brought up to not be open about our feelings -- and our sexual feelings in particular. Perhaps we have silly, shallow friends who still call us by nicknames we hoped we'd outgrown. Or perhaps we just sympathise with a gauche, ungainly character who acts like a social fish out of water and doesn't know how to get what she wants out of life? It doesn't matter if we are uncomfortable about the main character breaking the Fourth Wall -- although it is a well established device going back hundreds of years. If we find nothing humorous in Amanda Hart's style of comedy, then we should should shrug our shoulders and move on. There is plenty of other comedy around.
What is inappropriate about some of the reviews is that the reviewers resort to insulting Miranda's audience in order to emphasise their points. To tell people who enjoy 'Miranda' that they 'suffer from arrested development' or that they 'need a lobotomy' is -- if anything -- demonstrating that the reviewers need to check their own attitudes, and quite possibly, their own sense of proportion -- or dare I say it -- sense of humour. Yes,of course you are entitled to your opinion. And so are we all.
So, play nice, children. Don't be a bully. If you enjoy something, say so, and tell it from the heart. If you do not enjoy it, and it does nobody any harm, just have your say -- and move on. There's enough jelly, cakes and lemonade for everyone!
