Legit avoids mistakes of The Office and The Royle Family
19 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A few comments on here have suggested that this could have run for years. While it is sad it hasn't, perhaps it is also a blessing. let me explain.....

The first series of The Office & Royle Family were huge hits. Critics and fans latched onto the characters' personalities and they became part of our daily lives. When the second series came around, the main characters became caricatures based on those personalities and went totally off course. There are glaring inconsistencies between the first and second series of both comedies, a couple of examples being:

  • David Brent was portrayed as a bungling incompetent in Series 2 of

The Office, yet in Series 1 he was personally selected to become a board member by the company's directors.

  • In The Royle Family, Jim Royle was portrayed as a lazy sod who didn't

get out of his armchair, yet in series 1 he was working overtime to pay for Denise's wedding.

There are others, but I digress...

Perhaps Messrs Florence & Connell have done the Legit characters a favour by leaving it at one series. As most will know, the writers have gone on to write and start in the excellent Burnistoun, which appears to now be their outlet for their undoubted talents.

Well done and thank you for this guys, hope you continue to achieve success in your own write (sic)
