Staged: Series 2 Reviews

July 19, 2021
For one thing, every episode bristles with memorable comic lines, winning believability and an authentic undertow of increasing lockdown desperation. For another, they're only 15 minutes long.

Really we're here to see this terrific duo send their public personas and profession up, which they do time and again with panache and aplomb.

If you want to understand British humor with Scottish and Welsh accents, this is the show to watch... It's just off-beat enough for it to work.

Tennant and Sheen aren't the sole attractions of "Staged," but they are the main ones.

You never would've believed that starring at two whiny and bickering actors could be so funny.

What wins out is giving a new perspective to the outlooks of Tennant and Sheen. The discombobulated Scot and thorny Welshman have had a win -- which makes the next round of comeuppance and compromise all the more enjoyable.

A semi-incontinent Phoebe Waller-Bridge and a drily deadpan Cate Blanchett ensured that Staged ended on a starry, hilarious high.

Worse, it wasn't funny any more, except for the mildly amusing episode with Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Cate Blanchett. Like jokes about Zoom and the panic buying of loo roll, it was fun while it lasted.

Staged's return is already proving a much-needed treat for viewers.

I loved it. Billions won't.

The answer, for episode one at least, was Michael Palin. Even for a show powered by self-mockery and faux grandiosity it was a clever move to have Palin telling them that Staged was basically crap.

The whimsical, over-exaggerated personality assassination of themselves is again nothing short of hilarious brilliance as you pick your way through this box of decadent chocolate.

What was innovative and generous in June comes across, six months later, as stale and indulgent. Our patience has worn thin. The moment has passed.
