Mount Pleasant is one of the finest comedy/dramas I have seen for a long time.
When I saw the trailer I thought it was going to be rather tacky and I actually wasn't going to bother but thought I'd give it a try. I am a great fan of these sort of programmes and try to keep an open mind!
I was hooked after five minutes. The characters are really believable, not unlike many residents of new-build working/middle-class housing estates!
Glamorous it is not, and that's what makes it so watchable because you can really relate to the goings-on.
It was really pleasing to see Pauline Collins back, she is, by far an outstanding actress and I have always been a fan of hers. She is amazing in this and has been cast very well. Her on-screen husband, Bobby Ball is equally brilliant. They are a valuable asset to an already good series.
In fact there isn't an unlikeable character amongst them and the acting is first-class all round.
It's also very modern and up to date which worried me at first as I thought it was going to be wall-to-wall sex and swearing but I couldn't have been more wrong. Yes, there is bad language, but not just for the sake of it. I feel this is a series that will appeal to young and old alike. The humour is really sharp and I have laughed out loud alot. I totally recommend it

Mount Pleasant was a very pleasant surprise, thought from the adverts it looked amazing on viewing of the first episode I wasn't sure. It's very OTT and filmed in different way to normal dramas, can't quite describe but if you've seen it you'll know what I mean! But, after the first episode I was HOOKED! Watched every week religiously, the storylines are very gripping and interesting. Different ideas too and lots of twists in the story. The show boasts an excellent cast, all of whom really bring their characters to life, brilliantly acted and wonderful script writing. So funny and many occasions it has had me laughing out loud with excellent comedic timing. Cannot wait to have this on DVD wish it came out sooner seeing as the last episode is showing next week. Really want a second series cannot wait to see more from this show, it has lots of potential and has fastly become one of my favourite comedy dramas of all time!

When I started watching this I must admit I thought it was going to be another one of those mundane "we tried but it failed" sort of programmes... but I must admit it really isnt and it really suprised me with it's quality. After just 1 episode I was hooked on the series and couldnt wait for future episodes to be aired. The programmes mixes comedy and drama very well so you get a good laugh, but there's also enough drama in their so that you want to follow the charecters... its the perfect comedy-drama!

The cast of this show where great. Brilliant names including Bobby Ball and Angela Griffin made this show a great triump, with both their presence and their excellent performance - they where funny, dramatic and above all believeable. I must also say well done to the writers they did a great job with this programme. A great mix of comedy and drama writing - perfectly blended with eachover. Well Done.

A really good and honest programme and I am happy to say that a second series has been announced and I will buy this DVD. A great little series :D

This is the best series I have bought in a long time. Reminds me of Brian Rix farces from the gold old days. The humour is excellent. The cast is made up of some very well known actors and actresses that you would expect to be first class but the lesser well known ones are equally good. The plot lines are so far fetched but amazingly t
you are drawn in and they become credible. Can't wait for series three to start on tv and I am eagerly awaiting series 2 on DVD.

I never saw the programme when it was on the television but after reading the reviews, I decided to buy the DVDs of Series' one and two. Am I glad I did! I have only just watched Series one and I think it's great. It's an easy programme to watch and very entertaining, like a good book when you can't put it down!! Will be watching Series two next and have to say, here and now, I can't wait to see Series three. I hope the series' just keep on coming.

I've never written a review concerning a DVD and I absolutely lovely British comedy and dramas. Anything with a good actor/actress and I'll give it a go, usually with a great outcome. However this DVD was just horrendous, Sally managed to almost save the day, but the other actors etc were terrible! The characters were horrid and just not funny and I don't think it was well written at all. I threw it in the bin after I watched the whole series, so I gave it a go at least!

A really great series set in a Manchester suburb written, produced and directed by women. It's fun, it's raunchy and it's thought provoking. I watched all six episodes without a break and enjoyed every minute. Buy it now you won't be disappointed.
