At last a sitcom that you can just sit and laugh at. Benidorm has some great features. It does not try to be clever. It is not political and certainly not politically correct. It is not sexist, by which I mean it does not make the male characters out to be more stupid, feckless, or inept than the females. Most of the characters are grotesque to some degree, and yet all are likable and are played by excellent actors. Good comedy is not easy to do - re the depressing list of hopeless sitcoms scattered across TV history.
I could go on but there is no need to analyse Benidorm. The only thing that you really need to know is that it is very FUNNY.
PS The second series is turning out to be equally good.
