| Curiously Unfunny
From an age when sitcoms didn't need to be funny just observational, Second Thoughts is among the many low points of ITV's comedy output. The gorgeous and usually hilarious Lynda Bellingham is seldom seen in skirts and heels; never in the obligatory basque and stockings and was never less funny. The lovely Julia Sawalha is never seen in a mini skirt and manages the extraordinary feat of being grumpier than in Absolutely Fabulous. The legendary James Bolam was never less funny - hard to believe you're watching the same actor who was in The Likely Lads and its even better sequel. The circle is completed by Belinda Lang, playing the most typical character in the series - the Ex-wife - in the most stereotypical way possible. Along the way there are the wasted talents of Geoffrey Whitehead as Bolam's imperious boss, and loads of other people. An almost unbelievable 5 series were made of this "will they or won't they get married?" drivel. Bellingham and her two teenage offspring re-appeared in very short notice in the far better Faith In The Future.
