Though not the most original of concepts, I really enjoyed Monday
Monday. If you are looking for challenging drama, or laugh out loud
comedy, you will probably be disappointed. If you are looking for
easy-watching comedy drama with likable characters and some funny story
lines, then Monday Monday is for you.
Unfortunately, the low viewing figures of under three million for an ITV1 show - that spent two years on the shelf before being aired - indicates it will be highly unlikely to get a second series.
Fay Ripley, Morven Christie and Holly Aird can all be pleased with their performances. I have seen Holly in a fair few ITV drama's over recent years such as Torn, and I rate her very highly as an actress. It's these qualities from someone like her that helped to hold Monday Monday together.
I really really liked Monday Monday. I was surprised it was not some
cheesy, poor scripted, poor acting show given the rather strange title
that I'm not at all sure what it means, if it does have a meaning in
reference to the show. I guess in a way Monday Monday reminded me a bit
of the movie Bridget Jones Diary combined with The Office, kind of the
same British humor. I am from the States and really enjoy watching
British, French, and other foreign TV series and movies.
I really felt this show had a very good, well-rounded cast of characters and I especially loved the "2 Karen's" - they did very well acting their parts and were pretty funny, IMO!! And of course Tom Ellis has become a favorite of mine since Rush started airing on USA Network here in America - had no clue he was British! It always amazes me how British, or other foreign actors, do away with their accent when acting in an American show. Like Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohen of The Walking Dead show, how they talk 'southern' on that show and you cannot hear a lick of the British accent. I always listen real good to see if I can hear it now and again, but I seldom do. Anyway, whatever. Oh, and Fay Ripley is probably, in my opinion, the funniest of all the cast playing the head of HR and a drunk and someone who lacks smarts! I really liked her character a lot and thought she did a great job playing the part!!
As far as Monday Monday goes, do yourself a favor and give it a watch. I actually found season 1, the only season so far,on the Viewster channel on my Roku box. But I just googled it and all 7 episodes of season 1 are on youtube.com as well. Enjoy!!
