My New Favorite Show,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twenty Twelve: The Complete Series (DVD) (DVD)
I love this show. My only complaint is that there is not more it. Twenty Twelve follows the fake Olympic Deliverance Commission as they prepare for the London 2012 Olympic games. The cast of characters is highlighted by established comedic and dramatic British actors such as Hugh Bonneville, Jessica Hynes, and Olivia Colman. The more they say, the more you realize that they're all good at talking, but not at creating anything of substance. The show follow The Office style of filming, but each exchange is carefully crafted to feel as real as possible while still leaving you laughing and frustrated. Its too bad that BBC America buried this late on a weekend night, because I think it could have been huge in the states. However, that has now been remedied by the release of the complete series on DVD. The only thing lacking is special features as the included cast and crew interviews are all too short. There may only be 13 episodes, but they're well worth the money if you like absurdist comedy.
