Life with the Rushs, 2 February 2007
Author: lovenorwegians from United Kingdom

This is one of my favourite comedy series of all time, featuring some great scripts and superb acting from all the leads. It possesses some admirably off-beat qualities which help to raise it above the average domestic sitcom, and is complemented by a memorable theme tune. All of the regular characters are skillfully crafted and likable. Their world is steadfastly anchored in the early 1980s and time's winged chariot has passed them by, but the love and harmony so evident within the Rush family is something we can all admire. There are some interesting supporting characters, and the guest cast boasts many fine actors and actresses. No doubt some of the jokes would not make it into the sitcoms of today, but one must bear in mind that what is politically incorrect now has not always been so. This delightful series richly deserves a DVD release and I hope it will not be too long coming.
