Movie Reviews

Diana and Tom Wreak More Havoc
Movie Mania | Southern Calfornia | 04/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the Second Series (they have series in the UK not seasons)of the great Waiting for God. Based on the 300 minute running time, there are 11 episodes in this series.

Funerals - Tom and Diana are tired of all the boring funerals and decide that they should have a better send off.

Tom Dates - Since Diana only wants to be friends, Tom decides to date the new resident.

New Girl in Town - Tom's romance continues until Diana decides she doesn't like the competition.

Shoplifting - Diana and Tom catch one of the new resident's shoplifting but when they try to cover for her, Diana is accused of shoplifting.

Diana's Niece - Diana's niece comes to a visit and announces her wedding. But Diana sees through his polished veneer.

Sarah's Wedding - Diana's niece's wedding is pending and Diana is in the hospital. But nothing will stop Diana from the nuptuals.

Harvey's Plan - Harvey has a plan to cut costs and make more money for him.

Geoffery Moves In - Geoffrey leaves his wife and moves in with Dad.

The Vicar - It's another funeral but the Vicar has a nervous break down during the funeral.

Unruly Kids - Geoffrey goes after his wife and leaves the kids to watched by Tom and Diana.

The Job - Diana decides to get a job.

Stephanie Cole and Graham Crowden shine as the two oldsters. Lets hope that they continue to release more. This makes 18 of the 47 episodes."
Return to Bayview!
D. K. Hingle | the Middle of Kansas, United States | 06/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Waiting for God" is the ultimate BBC comedy on aging. Tom Ballard(Graham Crowden) and Diana Trent (Stephanie Cole) wreak havoc in and around the Bayview Retirement Community, much to the chagrin of Harvey Baines (Daniel Hill) who runs the place and the confusion of Jane Edwards (Janine Duvitski). Please take note: the series has a definite beginning, middle, and end. Most of the episodes do stand alone - however, I would like to suggest seeing them in order. IF YOU HAVEN"T SEEN THE FIRST SERIES/SEASON, YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER THAT BEFORE WATCHING THESE! Waiting for God - Season 1

For those who already know Tom & Diana, there is no better treat than a return trip to the Bayview Retirement Community "for the almost dead." The second series should include ten episodes of the battle for respect as waged by Tom and Diana. Some of the hijinx in store from the second season discs include the introduction of Daisy for two episodes ("just what I need - a real life Major Barbara banging about the place") who increases a rift between Tom & Diana; Tom's policy of telling ONLY the WHOLE truth; and the hilarious hip operation which conflicts with Sarah's wedding. However, there are three must-have episodes: "Glamourous Grannies" in which Diana bets Tom she can be nice to everyone for a week; "Young People" which involves Harvey's latest scheme to be rid of Diana on the grounds of morality; and finally, "The Boring Son," in which Tom's son Geoffrey (Andrew Tourell) leaves his wife and moves in with Tom driving everyone nuts in the process.

The British have a wonderfully understated way of presenting the trials and hassles of aging. This series is the best to come over from England, and let's hope A&E/BBC continue to release the show!"
Funny and Heartwarming

"Waiting for God is totally enjoyable. Imagine a home for retired people managed by a totally self-serving man who bullies his staff and attempts to bully the two stars of the show, Stephanie Cole and Graham Crowden. Ms. Cole has been the bane of everyone's existence there for a long time and when she is joined by Graham Crowden, they create havoc for everyone. Crowden's ineffective son and vicious daughter-in-law add to the interest as does Ms. Cole's niece. Altogether a most delightful program. Excellent acting, writing, and directing."
TOO FUNNY!

"When I am an "old lady" I want to be just like Dianna! This is quite possibly one of the funniest British comedies out there. I love British humor and this series is such an incredible example. I highly recommend this to anyone with a love for humor and a respect for aging."
