I think this update of an old favourite is surprisingly good!
Reeves and Mortimer handle their roles well - this isn't 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (Deceased)'.
The second series has been assured, polished and confident. There's been plenty of genuinely inspired laughs. First series are always shakey as the various ingredients take time to gel. Second time around I think the cast and crew have got it just right...
