Advantages: Comedy genious from Miranda Hart
Disadvantages: Makes your sides hurt from laughing
Miranda is one of those clumsy people that gets herself in some difficult positions in life and either ends up dancing, singing or falling over to get herself out of it. In short, she is me.
The series is based on her running a joke shop and her relationships with her family and friends. There is also a bit of romance potential in the form of Gary, (swoon!) who is the chef in the restaurant next door. Each character have their own little quirks about them. "Bear with" is now a firm favourite in our household and also "Such fun!" which is a catchphrase from "what I call" her Mother. (You need to see at least one episode of it for any of that to have made sense to you I appreciate.)
It is completely hilarious from start to finish if you like the type of humour that Miranda Hart has to offer. If you don't get "into it" in the first minute then it's not for you and you may as well switch it off. I love that she talks to the viewer throughout the show without the other characters knowing. She often refers to her life being a farce which is exactly what this series is. Yes it may seem old-fashioned humour to some but I quite like a bit of TV every now and again that requires no brain power to sit down and enjoy.
I would whole-heartedly recommend it to my friends and family purely because then they would know I wasn't the only person in this world with a strange way of social interaction. Certainly a 5 star series in my book. (Oh yes, book, she's written one of those too which I am mid-way through reading ~ review to follow.)
Summary: A fantastic comedy series
