Lame Characters / Lame scripts
on 9 October 2012
Having enjoyed series 1 to 3 of Benidorm I looked forward to series 4, but oh, what a disappointment! Half of the cast had obviously bailed out after series 3 and the newcomers were about as funny as toothache.
Liam, the son of (Les/Lesley) was depicted by the script as being slow and dimwitted. He was irritating, unfunny and a pain in the neck.
Natalie and Sam, the two new girls in the series, were only two dimential characters who added nothing new or interesting to the episodes.
Pauline, the sister of Geoff, seemed to be permanently drunk throughout and was another character who failed to instill anything funny into the series.
Kenneth, a colleague of Troy and Gavin, was just another unsuitable stand in for Troy.
The Garvey's held the whole thing together but even they sounded jaded and repetitive.
Series 5 will require more imagination from the writer and more talent from the actors.
