Movie Reviews

Mark Durand | Chicago | 04/17/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"David Renwick has created a very unique Brit-com. Created during the waning days of the Thather/Reagan era partly as a statement of how the Governments had neglected the needs of many people such as the Elderly, the young, the needy and so on. These issues were made comic fodder for our hero Victor Meldrew, a man who goes to work one day to discover that he's been replaced by a box. At 60 years old Victor feels that he has many good years left and now faces a new life and how to keep busy.

Victor's wife, Margaret tries to help as best she can, but she's not the biggest fan of his passions. (magic, ventriloquism) Victor's biggest passion seems to be correcting the wrongs of the world which he attempts with great enthusiasm. Most often these endeavors end in disaster, but on occasion they are successful such as an encounter with a computer salesman that's comic gold, as well as what happens when he awakes in the hospital, thinks he's dead and sees a man who he thinks to be God.

To some, the dark, sick and twisted scripts may be off putting. On first viewing, one would think that Mr. Renwick hates Victor but the true payoff is that after all the disasters and fights, at the heart, Victor and Margaret truly love each other and Mr. Renwick does a wonderful job of showing us this without beating us over the head with it as would happen on American TV.

Richard Wilson brings great life to Victor. We feel Victor's pain when he goes too far and tries to make amends to a world who, sadly doesn't care. This is a fairly complicated series (on American standards) i is certainly not as wild and broad as a Fawlty Towers or a Thin Blue Line but it's well worth a look"
Great series

"Third season of a great british sitcom. Those who love the traditional britcoms will love this one. Great acting, hilarious storylines."
