Why won't Gary just sat he loves her?
How come Miranda is looking so glam - not like her usual character?

Shinyshoes2 Thu 25-Dec-14 20:20:11

I thought the episode was a bit shit tbh
I really enjoy Miranda too

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Dec-14 20:21:15

What Shiny said. sad

BestIsWest Thu 25-Dec-14 20:21:23

I thought she looked lovely.

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Dec-14 20:24:08

She looked great, yes. Didn't save the episode unfortunately.

CateBlanket Thu 25-Dec-14 20:26:36

She did look lovely but out of character. I didn't think it was very good either. Hope New Year's Day episode is better

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Dec-14 20:28:10

It just grated for some reason. Just seems a bit old now, and not funny. Which is a shame because i love Miranda and the earlier episodes.

Another one disappointed here. It was almost like her heart wasn't in it and the acting was dire. My toes were, what I call curling at that end scene where Miranda and Gary were trying to appear upset.

I saw the title and went to look up today's episode that I missed. What was today's series/episode?

ashtrayheart Thu 25-Dec-14 20:33:49

She looks a lot slimmer but in baggy clothes to try and hide it!
Wasn't good unfortunately and I'm normally a fan.

We normally love Miranda, ds has been known to roll around the floor laughing but this episode didn't raise a chuckle from anyone. Too much talk about intercourse and just very very dull.

CateBlanket Thu 25-Dec-14 22:32:49

Trying - it's one of two specials that are concluding the show.

Where was Clive?

And why didn't Gary just bloody well say "I love you"?

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Dec-14 22:33:56

Chatty Man has got a bit better. Emma Willis and McBusted after the break,

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Dec-14 22:36:10

Sorry wrong thread!! But Chatty Man still better than Miranda. sad

Another disappointed fan here as well. It really felt like they were just going through the motions, and I think the number of montages from old episodes showed just how much they were struggling for anything genuinely funny.

I really, really hope the second one is better, otherwise it will be a massive anti-climax.

So are we thinking that Gary and Miranda will end up together or just remain friends?

Sparklingbrook Fri 26-Dec-14 10:36:38

Not sure diddl, there had better be an amazing plot twist after last night....

GoodArvo Fri 26-Dec-14 11:08:55

Everyone was so needy and ridiculous. I know it's supposed to be silly, but comedy should feel truthful and none of it rang true.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Fri 26-Dec-14 14:12:43

We were watching this, and I said to dh, I think she should marry the other guy. Gary is flakey - he only proposed because the other guy did, he won't say he loves her, now he's dumped her!

Really unfunny episode I thought - and way too much talk about sex (which my 7yr old dd was watching avidly). I have at times really LOL'd at past Mirandas - the psychiatrist one was really funny - this was just dull.

diddl Fri 26-Dec-14 14:15:06

I thought she should marry the other guy too!

gary seems to have turned it all around to her not trusting him (or did I imagine that) & really, she just wants him to say those 3 little wordsgrin
<overinvolved>

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Fri 26-Dec-14 14:59:58

If Miranda posted on MN, she'd be told to LTB grin

MarjorieMelon Fri 26-Dec-14 17:45:48

Yes definitely too much sex talk yesterday and she should have married the other guy, I've always thought that Miranda and Gary are more like brother and sister.

GoodArvo Fri 26-Dec-14 18:00:48

I felt that Gary had trouble with the really bad lines he had to say when he was dumping her. There are plenty of reasons he should run for the hills rather than marry someone so self absorbed, but the "not trusting" thing was lame.

fishdishwish Fri 26-Dec-14 19:51:04

There was a trailer for the second episode on earlier, and it does look slightly better than the one last night.

rabbit123 Fri 26-Dec-14 21:22:46

I think Miranda really was going through the motions with it. It definitely feels like she's done these 2 episodes just as a way to end the series
