All thirteen episodes from the first and second series of the BBC mockumentary comedy following the trials and tribulations of the team responsible for staging the 2012 London Olympic Games. Narrator David Tennant guides the audience through events as Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and his support team, including PR operative Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes), Head of Sustainability Kay Hope (Amelia Bullmore) and straight-talking Yorkshire man Nick Jowett (Vincent Franklin), take charge of a £9 billion budget. In the first series, the team must somehow keep the event on track as they face confronting challenges including horse dung oriented protests, what on earth to do with the Taekwondo hall after the games and sports stars with a desire to help but absolutely no personality. In the second series, the team have to deal with a dispute over the Shared Belief Centre when both Algeria and France threaten to withdraw from the Olympics.

I desperately searched online and read the reviews which tended to be mainly in the broadsheets and on the strength of just one episode I did the unthinkable and bought the boxset!
I could write all day about the characters, the quality of the acting on show here, etc, etc, etc but it is the writing which is just sheer satirical genius. I really cannot single any one actor out as the whole ensemble is just fantastic, each with their own catchphrases which never seem corny or forced.
Jessica "totally" Hynes, Olivia "not a problem" Coleman & the wonderful, wonderful Karl "Classic!" Theobold are just three of the superb actors who deserve a special mention. If you are looking for a witty, hilariously brilliant, laugh out loud, clever comedy, then PLEASE watch this!
Beware of the ending though as you will be left begging for more which although frustrating for the viewer is exactly how a comedy series like this should end. Many comedy series have troughs and peaks but one of the main things I love so much about Twenty twelve is that every episode is as good if not better than the last.
In my top 3 of all time now and as Graham Hitchens would say a "Classic!"
An absolute highlight for me is Jessica Hynes' performance, probably even her best so far!

2012 is easiest the funniest comedy of the decade so far (and I write in 2016). It's a fake docu-soap about the team organising the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, led by Ian... Read morePublished 8 months ago by BookWorm
With the Rio Olympics upon us, it seems a good time to revisit the organisational hell of "2012". Very funny.Published 10 months ago by laxlustre
