      Season 2 – Last Tango in Halifax

      2013 Romance Comedy List
      100% 6 Reviews Tomatometer 85% 50+ Ratings Audience Score This romantic comedy involves Alan Buttershaw and Celia Dawson, two 70-something widowed people. After their respective grandsons put their profiles on a popular social-networking site, the two rediscover feelings for each other similar to the ones they had many decades earlier as teenagers. Their relationship is a celebration of the power of love at any age, but it comes with obstacles -- namely their families. Alan's daughter, Gillian, and Celia's daughter, Caroline, are polar opposites and, while neither would ever think about getting in the way of her parent's happiness, the situation is a bit disconcerting.

      Previous Dorothy Rabinowitz Wall Street Journal Season 2 of Last Tango in Halifax is immeasurably richer and darker-in all the best ways-than Season 1, which is saying a great deal. Jun 27, 2014 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety The audacity of building a show around a couple in their 70s is so refreshing in this age of demographic pandering that it probably does more to brand Last Tango in Halifax as "public television" than virtually any other attribute in the program. Jun 26, 2014 Full Review Ellen E Jones Independent (UK) If you want real emotional depth and nuanced backstory - the stuff of real drama, in other words - try two pensioner protagonists. Nov 25, 2013 Full Review Claudia Connell Daily Mail (UK) There's no doubting the real key to the programme's success lies with its two main stars: Anne Reid and Derek Jacobi, who leave you enraptured with the joy of their late life love. 5/5 Aug 11, 2017 Full Review Matt Roush TV Guide His chemistry with Anne Reid as Celia, the woman he let get away some 60 years ago, is both delicate and deep, warming the soul.

      Previous Rusty J Season 2 equalled season 1 with continued evolution of great characters (and all of their flaws) . A classically written series.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved all 5 seasons of this show (season 4 was a 2-part Christmas special), but Rotten Tomatoes will only let me rate/review one season at a time. It was funny, heartwarming, poignant and at times devastating. Very rarely have I both laughed uncontrollably and openly wept at the same show. Kudos to the writers, directors and actors for working so well together to make such a great show. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Engaging series with wonderful stories and superb actors! One of my favorites!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved the plot, the actors, the scenery, marvellous, well done to everybody involved. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Watching the family grow and understand each others quirks and mistakes is like peeking around a corner at a family reunion and seeing all the tipsy grown-ups talking freely. Warm and witty with a little bobsledding into "What the hell ?" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I LOVE the characters in this series. They are so real and flawed. Celia is perfect in her roll, so typical for her generation. Gillian's drinking problem prevents her from making any good decisions, and John...well he's such an idiot. Don't we all know a John? Immature twit who only thinks of himself. Caroline is the more stable one, but she doesn't seem to realize she's using Kate as a rebound. Not only are these characters authentic, they look like real people. The actors in American seem to all look alike. Perfect teeth, duck lips, no wrinkles, definitely not realistic. I can't wait for the new season! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
