Car Share is a brilliant sitcom, and it’s thanks to its popularity that it has become cool to like Peter Kay again.
Kay has always been a popular comedian, but in terms of coolness this seems to vary. There was a time when he was just re-releasing slightly changed DVD releases of his stand-up shows, but the return to the sitcom format has shown that Kay is still more than capable of producing genuinely funny stuff.
Now in its second series, Kay and co-star Sian Gibson return as work colleagues John and Kayleigh – but not in the same car. Kayleigh has moved house and is taking the bus, but it is not long before the duo are getting back in touch again.
Car Share is on BBC One at 21.00. The rest of the series becomes available immediately afterwards on BBC iPlayer.
