    I watched the first episode and I didn’t particularly like it. I didn’t bother watching this but I might do so now. Well-Written review!

    • Thank you, TheLawsofTime.

      You should give the second episode a watch – you’ll definitely see an improvement in quality!

  • Well done, Pat. Superb review. You seem to be venturing as many various areas to assess as possible, which is no mean feat with a comedy, as I said on the last one. But you’re doing it, and doing it really well.

    So, do you reckon the series will likely go down as good, and nothing more, then?

    • Thank you James; I appreciate it!

      The Banbury Intricate Craft Circle Politely Request Women’s Suffrage now have a rival organization which was lightly touched on in this episode. Hopefully that will rise to something with very funny consequences. I’ll be annoyed if Up the Women ends on a bum note because it could be so much more. Or the opposite, it becomes something fantastic.

    A high quality review and enjoyable read. I agree that this weeks episode was an improvement on the first. I hope that this sit-com will not be confined to the church hall and that we can see the suffragettes on campaign with some funny ‘Dad’s Army’ style mishaps. In general, this series has promising potential but the humour is more subtle than outright hilarious and a few changes need to be made in order for it to be a success.

    • Thank you, that’s lovely feedback!

      I think Jessica Hynes stated that it would only be in church hall and nowhere else, so constraining it to give a ‘retro feel’.

    I watched the first episode and thought it not bad but not great but after this review I think I will watch the second episode. Great review

    • The second episode is very good – I was so tempted to give it an 8/10 but it’s not as great as Broadchurch or The Fall which I frequently give an 8.

      Thank you very much!
