But with the girlish excitement filling the cinema it seemed unlikely anyone would heed her plea. Just in case none of us remember, the producers of the much-awaited film version of the hit TV series remind fans with a quick recap at the start of the film where the four characters were at the point we left them when the series ended. Three years on, the two Ls are still carrying the storyline along: labels and love.
