Re: Jam and Jerusalem

wow 4.2 million!! I'm so pleased!! Hopefully it will be good ratings for the three specials and then jen might consider doing a christmas special too perhaps??? And a fourth series for definite...i hope...lol

But anyway....how funny was the first hour long special??? I was laughing so much from neginning to end...esp at Rosie with her lamb hahaha "Is it alright for me to drink another blue wicked doctor....? as i heard some ababies get addicted to bacardi breezers in the womb...."

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

It was fabulous! And Tip was amazing! She was already funny in the previous series, but she was beyond hilarious in this episode :lmao:
And I really hope they'll do a Christmas special too, though I doubt there will be a 4th series, but you never know.

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

I still haven't watched it, I was feeling too bad when I downloaded it and didn't want to spoil it watching it being ill. I'm a bit better today so gonna try to watch it.
I've just found the series 2 dvd in my mailbox :hyper: : great cause my sleepy brain needs the subtitles to watch anything in english at the moment. :crybaby:

Haha, yes! I really like Tip's development in the series - being a barkeeper is the perfect job for her, haha. I wonder what they're going to do with Sal though: she's a bit like she used to be after Mike's death in series 1. I must say I like her best when she's taking care of everyone and herself to be honest.

And Rosie, she's still the cutest thing: Dawn at her best! Thank god Jennifer wrote her in and allowed her to be the silly clown of the village again, it's genius.

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

I'll let you know as soon as I find a link. :wink: It really was a great episode - better than last week, I think.

Some very touching Caroline scenes in this, but the fashion show topped it all, haha. I loved how Maggie Steed (Eileen) taught the girls how to walk, it looked so ridiculous, and not at all like the catwalk is done nowadays. I wonder whether Jen got her ''catwalk instructions'' from Joanna, because they're almost exactly as in this video. :lmao:

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

OMG!!! last nights episode was FANTASTIC!!! These specials just seem to get better each week. :hyper:

I loved the first part because we saw a different side to caroline. which was good. and the fashion show...omg...Caroline looked so uncomfortable she just walked down and up in about 5 seconds hahaha :lmao:

I don't want to say anything else about the episode incase anyone hasn't seen it yet (hopefully you will have by now Philly) :happy:

But it was so amazing. I'm going to watch it again asap.

I'll be watching it later this afternoon, although I'm not sure if I can cope with the feeling of J&J being over again. :no:

To be quite honest, I really doubt if they will after all these cutbacks. But let's keep our fingers crossed, eh? :wink:

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

Oh yes, I'm the first to admit that I've had doubts about more episodes, even before the 3rd series had even begun. But one can dream :lol:

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

Oh yes, me too. I really love J&J, and I think it's the best show Jennifer has written so far, but it's really underrated.

It didn't get the ratings AbFab got, and on top of that, the press pretty much slammed it at first, so I was suprised when they were doing a third series at all.

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

Pauline McLynn blogs about J&J :grin:

I cannot believe it nor that I am actually admitting this but it has taken me till now to see the final episode of JAM AND JERUSALEM (I knew what happened, obviously, so I wasn’t awaiting an outcome, as ‘twere, but that’s no excuse cos I love and enjoy the series so I blame another great one of those SHAMELESS for keeping me occupied filming and wanting to get to bed early) – well, I was delighted with it. What a great show! And, as you all know, I am a woman who has a bit of trouble making a statement like that especially, and particularly, about something I , if I wasn’t in this show I would love it anyhow.

I love her! :grin:

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

According to Pauline MyClinn (who played Tip in J&J), there will be no more new episodes of Jam and Jerusalem. The BBC has apparenly made this decision, although she can't tell why. It really is a shame though: first AbFab, then F&S, Vivienne Vyle and now Jam and Jerusalem. What's left of the splendid comedies Jennifer has written? :no:

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

That's a real shame. J&J had the potential to expand in my opinion, because there are so many leading characters, so you can go in a lot of different directions plot wise.
On the other hand, I'm quite satisfied with the episodes that we got. They ended it when the episodes were still of really great quality, and they didn't risk it going on for too long, so from that perspective it's all good.
But it's still a pity, I would've loved more episodes.

Re: Jam and Jerusalem

I'm really sad over this. I would have loved to see where the next series would have taken everyone. I was really interested in where the relationships between Sal & Jock and Kate & the Vicar were going to go...not to mention seeing what Caroline was going to do next!
