Amongst the best ever made
1 January 2011 | by jocelynhunterSee all my reviews

This series is amongst the best ever written. I grew up with this show, and after just watching it again on tele, am about to run out and grab the DVD. It is even better than I remember it as a child.

This is both hilarious and heart wrenching at times, I can't remember the last time I was funny myself silly and then getting wet around the eyes in such a short time. These women are amazing actresses, and you care deeply about their characters.

I think we can all see parts of Tracey and Sharon in people we know, even ourselves, although at times Dorian is a little unrealistic. However, she is there to lighten the show and provides many opportunities to laugh out loud.

There has been no series made this decade that could be classed in its league.
