Miranda

posted in: Review | 2

The second series of Miranda has started… and it’s very funny I can recommend it. I loved the first series and the radio series’ before that so I was definitely gonna be watching.

Miranda

The show is a sitcom starring Miranda Hart.  It doesn’t matter what Miranda attempts in life, whether it’s dating or simply dealing with her overbearing mother, she always seems to fall flat, quite literally.

I loved this monologue at the start of the first episode.  Is it bad that I could imagine myself speaking it…?!

I’m gonna be the kind of woman, you know the kind of woman who leaps out of bed and their hair looks perfect.

They then grab a home made muffin out of their Cathy Kidston polka dot biscuit tin and head to work wearing trainers at the bottom of a skirt suit to show off that they’ve power walked in.

They have pot plants that don’t die on them.  Their fruit bowl isn’t full of three-week old rotting pears because they actually eat the fruit!  They have day bags, evening bags and a clutch, you know?

They just grab a wheat germ smoothie in between work because that’s enough to keep them going, even though at lunch time they jogged and enjoyed it… because they don’t have flesh that moves independently to their main frame!

And finally, they have easy access to pens to finish a crossword at a bar where the man they decided to take as a lover the night before says “hey, last night was great”.

You know I’ll be that kind of woman.

Didn’t see it?  Catch last night’s episode on BBC iPlayer (http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/w5mlg/) and the next one on BBC2 next Monday at 8.30pm.
