Product Description

Product Description

In this superbly funny and deeply human series from Carla Lane (Bread, Butterflies, The Liver Birds), Solo finds Felicity Kendal in the role of Gemma Palmer, a passionate and confused thirty year old. On discovering that her live-in boyfriend Danny (Stephen Moore) has been having an affair with her best friend, she throws him out and decides to live life on her own, independent and free. But keeping Danny out of her life and staying unfettered turns out to be much harder than she expected. Series One follows Gemma s struggle to shake Danny loose from her life and her heart where he s more difficult to dislodge. Meanwhile, in the room upstairs two flatmates, Bernadette and Josie, debate dating, romance, love and marriage. In Series Two, a fully freed-up Gemma finds herself back in the dating world and making friends with a new neighbour, Sebastian, whose close friendship and reckless love life runs on parallel and occasionally bumping lines. With Gemma s mother always on hand to dispense guidance, support and tales of her own love life, Solo uncovers the many surprising layers of dependence that independence brings.

Unfortunately, we can't get this little gem of Britcom over stateside. Still, it remains one of my all time favorites. Felicity is fantastic on her own as the meandering, struggling for independence and identity, early 30 something woman of our times. This is a classic -- funny and sad at the same time -- and for any woman who has tried to "find herself," this is the show to which you can relate. Simply excellent, but sadly overlooked.

I know I must have seen some episodes first time around, but couldn`t really remember it. I bought it because I`d been reminded of Felicity Kendall from buying the Good Life, so thought I`d see how it was. I enjoyed it, very watchable and interesting really, preferred the second series.

I used to watch this show on Bravo in the early '80s. I loved it then...so I was thrilled to have found it on Amazon!! I only wish there were more seasons to this show!

Being a Felicity Kendal fan, I enjoyed the series and Felicity Kendal looks great as usual, but the series is not as expected, up to the standard of the Good Life, but still enjoyable.
I thought the second series was better than the first series due the inclusion of the upstairs playboy, and their interaction.
As I said earlier, it is basically a vehicle for Felicity Kendal`s talent, and I would recommend it for her fans.
