Vast improvement over the first series, watched the last one of the first series before it to catch up and the difference in quality was very noticeable-Very Funny and Stephanie Beacham is great!

I watched the first series and found it very hit and miss. Some bits were funny, but rarely laugh out loud funny, and some of it didn't raise a smile. The new series however was brilliant. I was in hysterics throughout both episodes. The weakest character for me is Jane Horrocks. She annoys me. I absolutely love the two girls behind the tannoy. and the rude checkout girl. Stephanie Beecham was brilliant too. Can't wait for Ep 3

So is the product placement, ALL the items in the shop or do they feature certain brands that they have paid to advertise?
Just the Spontex products.

Did that security guard use to be in Bread?
He was Gary's mate in good night sweetheart as well. Can't believe that he's managed to put on even more weight since then.

Loved it. SB was (as always) fantastic. Kieron still as gorgeous as ever. Started to panic in ep 1 when Katie was nowhere to be seen (and not mentioned either), so was delighted to see her back in ep 2. Lovely understated story between her and Kieron IMO.
Kieron is serious hot stuff!

One of the hottest guys I've seen on telly in a while ...

I am loving the sweary, northern Stephanie Beacham - totally fabulous. My favourite character and some of the best-delivered lines though has to be Margaret on the deli counter "shitcake mushrooms" anyone?! pmsl

I can't remember most of their names, but when the checkout girl talk about opening her 'diary' I was in stitches. I can't believe how much better the show was, have they employed new writers? Serious question.

I'm enjoying the new series but I preferred Jane Horrocks' character in series 1. She seems to be a bit overwritten in this series and instead of just coming across as a bit sad she actually looks demented.

I love Margaret and Lorraine. Julie has been changed totally now, not enjoying her any more.

Thoroughly enjoyed Trollied again last night.

Stephanie Beacham is marvellous.

I think Stephanie is an absolute breath of fresh air and just what the show needed. Good comedy needs extreme grotesque characters like Lorraine - when I say grotesque, I don't necessarily mean physically so, but personality-wise, so it gives the writers something to get their teeth in to. I think that's what was missing from the first series, which is why it felt a bit underwhelming in comparison to series 2.

Just remembered Lorraine's comment about Kieran's bum:

"I could spend hours on that ..."

I really did laugh out loud at that and I share her sentiment

For me this line was one of the best from Episode 2, when Julie asked Katie how she was enjoying working on the kiosk and said 'a step up from working on the tills'. Now if you don't or have never worked in a supermarket that will mean nothing to you, but if you have, you'll understand what I mean

Can anyone recall the terrific line Stephanie Beacham had as she was clocking off? It's was something like 'I'm off out tonight. Someone's being lying about me; I have to go and sort them out'.

Forgot about this bit but it's so true!

I started on checkouts at a supermarket with a very similar uniform to Valco, worked my way to kiosk and then onto the customer service desk.

The kiosk was like its own little world and the women (and it was only women in the one I worked at) who worked it did the kiosk and nothing else. It was only on a Saturday evening when there was a big queue for the lottery that 'outsiders' could ever get a chance to have a go

I wonder how Iceland have taken to her being characterised as a former manager at one of their stores

No publicity's bad publicity and all that ...

Episode 3 was v funny. Stephanie Beacham as a hard-faced northerner is absolutely genius - I've never actually thought she was that great an actress but she has totally brought the character of Lorraine to life brilliantly. It's fantastic hearing her swear ha ha

Why does the store seem to close at 6pm?
I know it's not 'real' but that just irritates me, do they close on Wednesday afternoons as well?

I was wondering whether it was open 24 hours or not.

They really should do a nightshift episode

I started on nights at ASDA ... the things that go on even shocked me
