Disappointed with the last few series
12 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I used to love Benidorm, I have been a viewer of it ever since it first started with the very first series back in 2007. The first 5 series have been really good and funny with proper entertainment. However ever since series 6 up until the very latest series 8, I feel that the show is going to pot. For starters, the Garveys are no longer in it and the jokes from the other characters are about as stale and dry as the sand that surrounds the pyramids of Egypt. The show just feels dated these days and I seem to keep seeing the same old faces around the swimming pool and Neptunes. By "faces" I mean the extras in the background; series 6, 7 and 8 all appear to use the exact same people in the exact same locations! Someone needs to sack the guy who's in charge of the extras and bring some fresh faces into those scenes. In particular there is a middle aged couple always used for the pool scenes and also an older gentleman with a silly towel around his neck. These people must actually live by that pool in real life! I know I am not the only one who has spotted this over the past few years, people just don't seem to be making much effort with the production anymore. Also the SAME Solana establishing shots are being used year in year out too that are nothing more than recycled clips taken from the older series (some appear to be from before series 5!) they obviously cannot be bothered to shoot new establishing shots of the Solana and its just plain laziness. I know its a comedy but you still have to do everything properly and be professional in this day and age. IF there is indeed a series 9 or even series 10 in the pipeline then I really do hope these problems are fixed and sorted otherwise I can see itv giving up on this show and it will end up being on Netflix or YouTube as an "exclusive" or even worst just a direct-to-DVD like you get with many of the low budget films these days.
