This is the second volume in this side-splittingly funny 1990s British comedy. Those who've enjoyed the first volume (and it really is best to watch this series from the beginning) will love this volume just as much, as the humour continues along the same vein.
Dawn French plays Geraldine Granger, the new vicar, who seems to be the only sane person in the charming little village of Dibley. In this volume, the vicar continues to prove that she is eminently capable of providing for the needs of the parish, much to the chagrin of the pompous, self-serving David Horton. The vicar also continues, wherever possible, to get the better of David. The balance of this assorted and eccentric cast of characters consists of the ditsy and naive verger, Alice Tinker, and her intellectual equal, Hugo Horton (David's son); Frank, the village council's incompetent secretary; Owen, a rustic farmer with his own distinct brand of farmyard humour; the dithering Jim; and last but not least, Letitia Cropley, a geriatric nymphomaniac and "Dibley poisoner."
This video consists of three 30-minute episodes. Briefly, in "The Weather and the Window," the church window is damaged in a storm and the vicar must somehow raise the money to pay for its replacement. "Election" has David Horton campaigning to keep his seat as District Councillor; this time, however, he's up against a little competition--from the vicar. Finally, in "Animals," the vicar has the novel and unorthodox idea of holding a blessing for the animals of the parish. This last episode (as many an animal lover will no doubt agree) is truly the most beautiful of all; it is certainly my own personal favourite.
In conclusion, this is classic British comedy at its best. Along with the hilarity, there is also a real tenderness that pops up from time to time--moreso in this volume than in the first. It's without a doubt one of the best series (British or otherwise) that I've ever seen. Extremely highly recommended!
