This review is from: Vexed: Series 2 (DVD)Comparisons to Vexed Series 1 are inevitable, and to my mind Series 2 comes out on top.
We started watching Vexed because of Lucy Punch (whom we loved in Doc Martin), but really her character in Vexed seemed kind of world-weary and with issues of her own. On the other hand, Jack and George really offset each other to bring out the humor. George's issues are more about her own sense of perfectionism, which works better for a comedy. She manages to make Jack seem more of a lovable doofus whereas in Series 1 he sometimes seemed more like a jerk. George and Jack get into some very funny situations, and it's really peripheral that they are solving crimes. Toby Stephens and Miranda Raison have great chemistry. I hope they work together again.
Both seasons are recommended, but Series 2 is the maraschino cherry and umbrella on the cocktail.
