Anyone else watching "Miranda"?

We are LOVING this...
What I *heart* most about this is that although it IS a bit cheesy and slightly daft in places, Miranda (the star) posseses that natural comedic talent that other comediens like Tony Hancock and Frankie Howerd had - she involves her audience like we're her friend.  She has these great 'asides' to the camera which totally endear you to her madcap world. 
Try it out - you'll be glad you did!
Oh, and there's that lovely 'You were Watching...' thing as the credits roll - the actors all have a little wave goodbye to their audience too.  It's great.  Um... did I already say that?
Mondays 8.30pm BBC2.

Debs I LOVE Miranda! I've recorded them all on my shy box and I'm on the third one now, I love it. IMHO comic genius particularly the interview one lol xx

I absolutely love it too. She's just so warm, I want her to be my friend. (The looks at camera are my favourite bits.)

I loved her in Not Going Out too, which was similar in that it was often groanworthy, but still very funny.

Jacqui - I want a "Shy Box" too! does it stand in the corner of the room with it's face turned in?!! (LOL)
Keris - 'Not Going Out' was one of my guilty pleasures too. Like you said it was v.groanworthy but Barbara the laxadaisical cleaner was def. my favourite in it! (oh and the dippy wife/sister of his best friend... reminded me of my own blonder moments).

Did you notice the dippy friend (she was Tim Vine's girlfriend Daisy, I think - if it's the one you mean) was in the first episode of Miranda too? She went wedding dress shopping with her.

Debs Riccio said...

Aha! That's where I remember her from. She does Dippy Sooo well.
Tom Ellis is a bit of a lush, don't you think he'd make a good Darcy?

I get so totally into this prog that I sit on the edge of mi chair and cringe with her embarrasment. It's great. xx
