Yes, strong beginning but a definite rapid descent
28 January 2014 | by lizroy51See all my reviews

The one reviewer was absolutely right when they said that the second season devolved into farce. We loved, loved the first season and were watching two or three episodes of an evening. Now it is really hard to get through just one, like an unpalatable chore. We are going to hang in there and hope things right themselves. Either that or fast forward to the end. In the first season I enjoyed Celia and Alan sitting, chatting and chewing on a 'sweet' but now I find it quite annoying. I also found Alan's reactions to Gillian's 'hurt' rather harsh and over the top. I really feel for her and know she is the author of her own fate but still... My husband and I just felt the creators/directors were overloading the show to no useful purpose. Does not one think that the fears and foibles of 'disappointing human beings' are enough to carry us along? I would have thought so. I had given the first season a 10 but so far, into the second, a 6 and not being harsh. Most series do not start devolving until the 4th or 5th (even Downton is getting redundant and a bit trashy) but this - and we don't know why - went from fantastic to farce in the space of no time at all!
