1.0 out of 5 stars I never even giggled. Not once., 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miranda - Series 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
Painfully artless post-70s recycled comedy s*** popular with the under 12s (i.e. my daughters). I tried to explain to them that Michael Crawford in Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em did all this infinitely better about 40 years ago but they just glazed over and went back to their iPods.

Totally agree. At worst inane and at best dire.

Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em is completely different to Miranda, and you can enjoy and appreciate both. My sister and I were both raised on 70s/80s comedies and we love Miranda alongside Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, The Good Life, To the Manor Born, Steptoe and Son, Dads Army, etc etc. I get that Miranda isn't for everyone, and she does do a more 'old style' comedy than other current sitcoms, but I don't think it's fair to say this was all done better so many years ago-there's space for everyone's take on a genre, and Miranda has been created for a different audience-possibly encouraging some of the audience to go back and revisit the kind of comedians/comedies that she has spoken of being influenced by.

Clever woman writing and acting stupid. Kind of sums up the way British sitcoms have gone. By contrast, I just caught an old episode of 'Malcolm in the Middle' - great characters, humour that stems from the story and the people, unpredictable, inventive, has you wanting it not to end. Deeply, deeply embarrassing that the British are still wetting their pants at someone falling over surrounded by characters who can't tie their own shoelaces (without falling over).
