Following the resounding success of the first series of ‘Car Share’, Peter Kay and Sian Clifford returned for another season of classic music and great comedy.
On the BBC re-runs that I have been rewatching the show on, the ‘Unscripted Special’ was aired as part of Season 2, due to narrative chronology even though the episode itself aired alongside the finale in 2018.
Therefore I will include that episode in this review, and review the finale of the show as a separate thing, as opposed to a ‘Season 3’. The unscripted special still maintains the humour we are used to, but lacks the slow build narrative and the well planned out gags that they still manage to make feel natural.
As for the season itself, it achieved what many imagined it would be unable to do, and they actually raised the quality of the show.
The chemistry between Kay and Gibson has been built in many projects over the years, but here it is utilised to the full and it is great to see. They both have perfect comic timing and really bring the best out of each other.
This was such a simple concept that is executed so well and provides the perfect easy watch for the entire family, while also being hilariously funny.
Rating = 4.5/5
