(5 out of 5 stars)

"Back to Bayview! The retirement complex for the almost dead, whose administrator (Harvey Bains, played by Daniel Hill) is constantly plagued by the antics of the two aging with attitude oldsters, Tom & Diana (Graham Crowden & Stephanie Cole). This is 'Round Four.' Score so far: Tom & Diana, 4; Harvey, 0. And so it continues. With interesting situations, snapppy dialogue, and remarkable characterizations, the battle continues. This is my all-time favourite BritCom, bar none.

This season marks the appearance - for the first time on this side of the Atlantic of which I am aware - of the second Christmas episode. According to my sources, Diana is chosen to direct a Christmas Pagent. (That is the working equivalent of putting Pontius Pilate in charge of a Hannukah Festival.)

If you have never "been to Bayview" DO NOT MAKE THIS YOUR FIRST SET OF DISCS. Start at the beginning, with Season (Series) One, episode one ("Arrival.") Jumping in here would not only confuse, but spoil the fun of getting to know Tom & Diana as those of us who have followed their adventures have. The show has a definite beginning, middle, and end. Oddly enough, I was first introduced to the unlikely pair through the episode "The Seance," and my host had to explain way too much to me, although I did about die laughing. You will too, regardless of what episode you watch; however, as a WFG veteran, I do strongly recommend viewing in order.

Bayview - there really should be one at the end of every acacia avenue! My highest recommendation goes to the entire series. I can't wait for the final episode of the final season. Too bad BBC saw fit to release the discs with agonizing (for us) slowness.

Here's to Tom & Diana - long may they plot!

"As per usual Diana and Tom deliver. My only downside to the Brit com's is they dont release them here in the US as fast as they should."
Love this britcom!!!

"I started watching Waiting for God on my local PBS station and missed it terribly when it was taken off due to budget cuts. Thanks to Amazon and BBC America I can see it anytime at home. What I like most about the series is that it's about older people and the funny situations they get into and how they deal with it. I've stopped watching network TV sitcoms because they're empty and devoid of real comedy. I'm tired of seeing pretty young women with unattractive men both having lack luster personalities and equally boring comedic situations. The British have always done comedy well and Waiting for God with the feisty Diana Trent and the amicable Tom Ballard hits the spot. Why can't America follow the Brits lead and have more programs that feature people in all stages of life and not just the young pretty ones. We need character and that comes with age and you'll find that in this series. I can't wait for Season 5 to be released."
