      Season 3 – Last Tango in Halifax

      2014 Romance Comedy List
      100% 7 Reviews Tomatometer 89% 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.

      Brian Lowry Variety Still pleasant enough, one can feel series creator Sally Wainwright laboring a bit, having brought her adorable leads together, as she conjures excuses to drive wedges between them. Jun 26, 2015 Full Review Terry Ramsey Daily Telegraph (UK) Wainwright's development of the families, her empathy with the female characters and her warm and witty dialogue mean the series rises to levels far above its plot twists. Rated: 4/5 Mar 11, 2015 Full Review Neela Debnath Independent (UK) Just when you think that Last Tango in Halifax can't get any better, writer Sally Wainwright manages to hook you right back in. Jan 4, 2015 Full Review Jane Bowron The current series of Last Tango in Halifax has been a joy to watch -- every actor a gem, each episode structured and stacked with just the right degree of plot, character development and believable dialogue. Jun 14, 2017 Full Review Alison Graham Radio Times Though the tone of this third series of Sally Wainwright's brilliant, all-too-real family drama has been dramatically different from that of the first two, it doesn't mean this new sharpness isn't welcome. Jul 14, 2015 Full Review Christopher Stevens Daily Mail (UK) For all the blazing dramas in this story, it's [the] details that ring most true. Rated: 3/5 Jul 14, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Rusty J Last Tango keeps impressing, Very clever. And continued memorable and unique characters. 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 Beautiful story about family and love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful series!! Love the actors and the rich stories! The nuances in the character personalities are a strength as are the presentations of their ongoing life challenges that are sprinkled with humor. Bravo!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Having enjoyed Sally Wainwright's "Happy Valley", I had great expectations for this series. Unfortunately -- though it has engagingly flawed characters, witty dialogue, great acting -- it's a bit of a disappointment overall. The problem is lazy plotting, where random melodrama is periodically introduced to shake things up or provide an easy resolution for tensions between the characters. LTIH excels in its quieter moments, where drama arises from believable personality flaws, bad judgment, or the simple demands of raising a family. The rekindled romance between Alan & Celia is delightful, and offers many opportunities for drama as they realize what it means to finally get the person you've had a crush on for 60 years. Great stuff. But then out of the blue (perhaps to juice up the ratings?) something dramatic or shocking will happen which allows simmering tensions to be lightly tossed aside without a real resolution. After a while it seems laughable. A secret pregnancy is revealed, and not only is she 8 months pregnant, but she's having the baby *right now*! Gillian's poor taste in men leads to conflict & argument, and then suddenly her car blows up for no apparent reason (and is never mentioned again). Celia has issues with Caroline's lesbian romance, but then suddenly an illegitimate son pops up out of nowhere, and then we kill off a major character as well for good measure! It's all piled on far too thick. If Wainwright had more trust in her wonderful characters, and more faith in the audience to enjoy a more realistic drama, the result could have been much more satisfying. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review lynne s Hats off to Sally Wainwright for a great story and script. Love all the characters. It's my cup of tea Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
