  • Such Fun !!!

    One of the best series in a while. I lóóóve Miranda Hart. The way she handles life's little stinkers is a way we all want to handle it sometimes. Beautifully set up, with old succes formula, like the live audience and the credits in the end, à la "Are you being served" or "Dad's Army", combined with Miranda Hart's wit and awkwardness, it's a layered comedy, but fun to watch for all ages.

    It makes you laugh out loud.

    This episode is about the thing we all would wanna do at Christmas sometimes: stay at home and do whatever you please, while concluding that the best Christmas is still with your friends ánd family.

    Although, when you hear the song her parents sing for her in a crowded living room, you quite understand why she first chooses the option to stay at home with just friends.

    Absolutely fabulous.moreless
