Very Very Funny
I can't believe this show has such a low score.
Bristling with talent such as Mark Addy (Game of Thrones - The Full Monty) and Jane Horrocks (Little Voice - Absolutely Fabulous) and the new addition for series 2 of Stephanie Beacham.
The first series was hilarious with many laugh out loud moments. My favourite was where Leighton was following the repair guy all day which culminated in the toilets. You could actually feel the guys pain in his final comment. I had to rewind it and watch it again I was crying that much with laughter.
Now, in series 2 we have the addition of the beautiful Stephanie Beacham in a role you could never have predicted. If you enjoyed granny's language in the Catherine Tate show you are going to wet yourself at Miss Beacham's character Lorraine. Hats off to her for this role but I bet she has never had so much fun playing a character. Dynasty fans will probably have a coronary when she opens her mouth.
I am not condoning bad language but when it comes from someone you are not expecting it to, it is hilarious.
Add in things like Linda & Colin's unexpected "relationship" and you have an absolute classic. (I used the word relationship in it's loosest term) Give this a couple of episodes so you get to know the characters and you will not be disappointed. Stick through till series 2 and Stephanie Beacham will have you creased up with laughter and "as sharp as a b*****d". 10 out of 10
